Filipinos are known to travel a lot. With a lot of sales and great deals, more Filipinos are enticed to travel. According to a study by Picodi, almost half of Filipinos surveyed said they travel at least twice a year. The average Filipino spends about PhP 13,000 for every trip, which includes fares, food expenses, incidentals, and hotel accommodation. With promos and budget-friendly trips, why spend PhP 13,000 for a single trip if you can make it more exciting without making much of a fuss and expenses?
As the summer season approaches, here is a RedDoorz Travel Guide to give you some ideas on how you can enjoy your next trip without spending over PhP 5,000.
RIDE TO THE SLOPE OF MAJESTIC MAYON
DESTINATION : MAYON VOLCANO ATV RIDE
The Philippines is home to hundreds of volcanoes, including the Mayon Volcano, known worldwide for its almost-perfect cone shape. Once recognized as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the active volcano, which is just 15 kilometers from Legazpi City, Albay, attracts thousands of local and foreign tourists yearly.
You may rent an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and navigate through the different trails around the volcano for as low as PhP 400. If you are more adventurous, you may opt to ride up the lava trail almost two-thirds of the height of Mayon Volcano for PhP 2,500.
