Revealed: Top 5 countries Filipinos travel to from UAE

by | Feature, Lifestyle

The experience of travelling around the world is something that’s in the bucket list of most Filipinos, especially those who reside here in the UAE.

The country’s strategic location makes it easier to travel to nearby countries. Rose Dela Rosa, Operations Manager at AMR Travel and Tourism, shares the top five places that Filipinos go to to fulfill their #TravelGoals .

Georgia

As the winter season arrives at its peak, Filipinos have long wished to experience snow as it doesn’t really happen either here in the UAE or in the Philippines. “The number 1 place that Filipinos go to these days is Georgia as Filipinos are looking forward to experience snow for the first time in their life,” shares Dela Rosa.

Armenia

“Armenia’s scenic views is just amazing to witness first-hand. Filipinos also get visa upon arrival,” said Dela Rosa. She also shares that exploring Armenia’s tourist sites gives that added boost of cultural experience to your life.

AMR Travel and Tourism recently held the opening of their office.

South Korea

With the boom of the Korean culture within the Filipino’s way of life, more Filipinos are finding their way right into the heart of where it actually takes place. “As a Koreanovela fanatic myself, watching them triggers your mind to just go and explore the place, maybe even meet your own Oppa!” said Dela Rosa.

Japan

Another country in Asia that Filipinos travel to is Japan as Dela Rosa shares that most of her clients marvel at the advanced technology, the discipline of its citizens and the food!
