It’s more fun in the Philippines. No doubt, we Filipinos know that for a fact. But as tourists continue to visit our country by the droves, people the world over are starting to realize (and agree) that there is indeed so much fun to be had here in our beautiful motherland.
Just imagine, according to a recent report by the Depart of Tourism, the Philippines registered a total of 2.23 MILLION international visitors from January to May 2015 alone. That is an astounding 8.15% growth from the previous year.
With the continuous and steady increase of international visitors (non-Philippine residents) in the country, not to mention the rise in numbers of OFWs coming back home to spend more time with their respective families and loved ones, it made perfect sense to make connectivity for our tourists as worry-free as possible. This is the very reason why Globe collaborated with the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) to drive its “Visit the Philippines Year 2015” campaign by offering its Globe Traveler SIM for free (Yes, free!), giving tourists a hassle-free and convenient way to immediately get connected during their stay in the Philippines.
Care to enjoy incredible food in a place where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the majestic sea? That’s exactly what you can expect when you visit the Bohol Bee Farm located at Dao, Dauis, Panglao Island, Bohol.
The Bohol Bee Farm is just one of the many places you must visit when you travel to beautiful Bohol.
During my recent trip to Bohol together with a couple of blogger friends and a few media acquaintances through the kindness of AirAsia Philippines, Bohol Tourism, the Bohol local government and USAID-COMPETE we stayed at the beautiful South Palms Resort Panglao.
Draped in a blanket of green that cascades into half a mile of white sand beach, the longest stretch there is in the entire island, South Palms Resort Panglao stands out with its unique blend of spectacular seascape, cool private villas and warm Boholano hospitality.
South Palms Resort Panglao is one incredible place. It is a sprawling resort with rooms lined up side-by-side along its vast ground, all situated beside the beach. It is far from those typical high-rise hotels that we have become accustomed to.
It is everything you are looking for in a resort and so much more.
When we see parks and houses filled with lights during the holidays, the kid inside each one of us comes out. It’s like we are transported back to our childhood days wherein Christmas simply means being with family and friends, sharing stories, laughter and one another’s joy.
Isn’t it a pleasure to just sit in a park filled with Christmas lights, watching people go by? There is that certain fuzzy warmth inside that just tugs at your heart seemingly wanting to say, “Hey, it’s Christmas… whatever your burdens, it doesn’t matter now. You are loved. Be happy.”
Don’t you just wish that we could have more of these around and beyond the Metro? Something to remind us of Christmas and the genuine love it brings out of even the hardest of hearts.
