Securing a tourist visa is inevitable when planning a trip outside the country. Nobody wants to be denied of entry and just let all those plans go to waste, that’s why it’s vital to prepare weeks ahead before your departure. Finally, after months of hiatus, I was able to score a sweet deal for a round trip ticket to Taiwan for a very irresistible price of 1,500 pesos. Taiwan, here I come!.. But oops, before that, we need to ensure that we have the proper documents first, which brings me to the main topic of this post...

Whenever I talk to foreign travelers who are interested to travel to the Philippines, I always recommend seeing Banaue Rice Terraces. It will surely be a challenge before you get to reach the destination, but I am sure it will be worth it. However, access to the Internet and new online businesses provides opportunities for more tourists to travel with ease. In this trip to the Cordilleras, I joined a tour group for three days and only managed to spend 3,000 pesos without even worrying about the logistics and other details. It’s not the usual group tours (like what we joined for our HK trip) since it was only with a small group so we weren’t too restricted with the time and I had a nice time getting to know my travel group.

I don’t know what got into me when I booked this solo trip to Bacolod for Masskara Festival of 2011. Maybe it was the rampant advertisement of cheap airfares that made me hit that ‘Book Now’ button. Maybe it was craving to see more festivals after just experiencing the Pahiyas Festival of Quezon the same year and that pushed me to see at least one more before the year ended. Or maybe it was the plain feeling of wanderlust, the need to see and experience more and escape for a while from the pollution of the city and stress from work.
