Saan ka kayang dalhin ng ₱22 mo? More young Pinoys now travel the world

by | Lifestyle, Travel

Let’s take a short trip down memory lane. How old were you when you first book your own airplane ticket for travel overseas? Many of you would probably have the same range of answers. Fret not! You’re still lucky because some people only experienced exploring the world after their work retirement.

Some twenty years ago, Filipino youth feel like they’d need to wait until their golden years to see the world. But times have changed. Everyone is suddenly planning for their next flight getaway. Everyone is buying plane tickets and packing their luggage. And many of them had already been to more than 10 countries just at the age of 22.

By 2020, 320 million international trips are expected to be made by youth travelers each year, as per Forbes magazine. That said, would you say it’s because today’s generation is braver and more independent than the rest of us? We disagree, of course. They’re able to make the world so small thanks to budget carriers in the Philippines, like the leading low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific, that enable them to afford experiencing the world at such a very low price.

A flight from Manila to Dubai, for example, used to be a ripped off, and a lot of saving for an entire year was needed before catching a flight to explore the UAE.

If you’ve checked out the latest promo of Cebu Pacific in time for their 22nd year anniversary, you wouldn’t believe where your P22 can take you.

Just scroll down on your iPad or Android phone until you find the date with the best deal and viola, the next thing you know, you’re already reading a Coelho book in Thailand, living your Koreanovela dream in Seoul, hitchhiking through Mt. Fuji in Japan, or simply tasting an authentic shawarma in Dubai.

Indeed, the world is getting smaller thanks to the current fascination with traveling because of budget airfare flights like what Cebu Pacific offers.

So, what does this mean for you! It’s never too late and would never even cost you that much to tick off the places you’ve been wanting to visit off your bucket list!

Thanks to Cebu Pacific, travelling to 22 countries (or more) in a year has never been this possible!
