One of the great things about living in Manila is that we can take pretty affordable trips around the area! Since we only have two years to explore, we plan on making the most of it!
This weekend, we’re off on a short weekend trip to Batangas to do this for the first time:
(Classes start today!)
At the end of the month we have booked a trip to Cebu…
And since we have labor day weekend coming up, we also booked a trip to Coron, in the middle of nowhere, where we’ll eat the food that was fished that day and take boat trips around the islands and go wreck diving…
For my birthday a couple of weeks later, we agree that I don’t need anything now, and decided to have an experience instead… So we’re off to Subic to this place, so I can do this…
We’re making a weekend out of it, which might include ziplining or another diving experience.
October will not be outdone! We’re off to Korea to visit both Seoul (where Karl lived for 4 years during his Army days) and Busan!
For November, Veterans Day weekend in the US means another holiday for us, and thanks to cheap tickets ($185 total for round trip tickets for the TWO of us!) we’re off to a 2-night stay in Taipei, Taiwan!
No trips (yet!) scheduled for December, but I already mentioned that January we’ll be busy with my parents visit, where we’ll go to Thailand to see Bangkok and Chiang Mai, we’re off to Siem Reap in Cambodia, and we even added a last minute addition (as our plane was stopping there anyway): Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam!
Have you traveled much around in Southeast Asia or the Philippines? Any place else you believe we MUST see?
For future trips in the PI, we have Tagaytay, El Nido, Puerto Princesa, Boracay and Donsol on our list, just haven’t planned it yet! We’re also hoping to hit Singapore at some point, and if we can find good flights, go over to Bali as well!
