Say 1-4-3 on Valentine’s Day with Cebu Pacific

by | Lifestyle

In this month of romance, let Cebu Pacific bring you to the some of the top island-destinations in the world. The Philippines’ largest carrier has a special treat this Valentine’s Day for UAE residents with promotional fares from Dubai to Manila priced at AED143 available for booking on February 14 to 15 or until seats last.

With travel period for the seat sale between June 1 and December 31, 2018, UAE residents can enjoy an extended vacation visiting family and friends in the Philippines, and even an extra getaway vacation to must-visit destinations—all courtesy of the extensive domestic route network and international connectivity of Cebu Pacific.

Here are some destinations for travelers who would like to experience: ‘Sun, Sand and Sky’, ‘Culture Trip’, ’Food and Shopping Galore’ and ‘Urban Oases’.

SUN, SAND, AND SKY

Boracay

Famous for its beaches’ stunning white sands, Boracay continues to be a top tourist draw with its exciting day and night activities.

Camotes Islands, Cebu

Called the “lost horizon of the south,” Camotes Islands boasts a wide selection of beaches, dive sites, and other natural attractions, offering a serious sanctuary to recharge, reflect, and basically chill.

Palawan (Puerto Princesa and Coron)

The movie “The Beach” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, while shot in Phuket, Thailand, was reportedly inspired by this pristine mini-archipelago. Dubbed the Philippines’ “last frontier,”” Palawan is the place to go for nature tripping, with its stunning sights on land and water, including the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, one of the newest Seven Wonders of the Natural World.

Guam

Guam is blessed with breathtaking beaches– perfect for thrill-seekers hoping to get their dose of vitamin sea. Guam is also a treat for history buffs— Magellan got lost there before finding his way to the Philippines. Shopaholics will also delight in shopping finds with the some of the world’s most iconic retail brands found in outlet malls and shops on the island at great prices—all tax-free.

CULTURE TRIP

Bali, Indonesia

Bali, Indonesia, offers a Southeast Asian cultural experience like no other – with beaches, temples, and food pickings to keep wanderers busy. Bali also shows its guests a different glimpse into the heritage of Indonesia, one of Southeast Asia’s enduring cultures.

Taiwan

Despite its small size, Taiwan is the place to go for those looking for a cultural trip. The Long Shan Temple, for instance, was built in the 5th century and offers a preview of Taiwanese life then. Taiwan also offers several National Forest Recreation Areas that are perfect for meditating and getting in touch with nature amid the hurried pace of everyday life.

FOOD AND SHOPPING GALORE

Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka)

There’s no shortage of activities in the Land of the Rising Sun. Travellers must get ready to tuck in and sample various local delicacies in Osaka—dubbed the “Nation’s Kitchen”—as they haggle and snap up bargains in the various shopping districts of Tokyo and Fukuoka.

Korea

Another popular Asian destination, Korea is also home to various trendy shopping destinations, including the Gangnam District (as referenced in the song “Gangnam Style” by Psy) where it would be impossible to leave empty-handed. Korean dishes like samgyeopsal, bulgogi, bibimbap, mandu and their barbeque are must-tries!

URBAN OASES

Australia (Sydney)

The sights and sounds of Sydney—site of the 2000 Summer Olympics—will surely be a treat for travelers seeking adventure in the Land Down Under. The Sydney Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House are just two of the city’s main attractions that are definitely worth exploring.

Singapore

Singapore is a small island-nation—but this Lion City sure is packed with a lot of spots to see and things to do. For a city that is highly urbanised, Singapore offers unique patches of green, such as the Gardens by the Bay, National Orchid Garden, and the Singapore Botanical Garden. To get stunning views of the city, a visit to the popular Singapore Flyer and the Marina Bay Sands Skypark is a must.

Getting around the Philippines and to key destinations around the Asia-Pacific regions is easy with Cebu Pacific with seamless connections from one terminal in Manila. From Dubai, it’s just a matter of finding the connecting flight to the vacation destination of choice. For bookings and inquiries, guests can visit www.cebupacificair.com or call the reservation hotline +65-315-80808. The latest seat sales can be found on CEB’s official Twitter (@CebuPacificAir) and Facebook pages.
