Life’s Boring You Out? Get Out More!

My recent wanderlust has made me look for previous travel photos and I saw some. I am just too happy that so far, I have reached at least a single point in the country but I still have a lot more places to cover, a lot more to write in this blog the next time. I wanted to make a bit of a video about all of those places and thankfully, there is BPI to the rescue with their Get Our More campaign. I have seen that they have partnered with the Department of Tourism and ZestAir which I still am not in a good vibe with for they have stopped their services in my hometown but I am glad that they have expanded their Kalibo hub, good for my next Boracay trip soon.

There are beautiful places from the upper tip of Luzon to the lower tip of Mindanao but the most special places to me lie in Visayas at what I call the Palawan, Panay and Negros Island Triangle. The three islands, including my home island of Negros, are places with the most known tourism spots in the country and undeniably the most beautiful though they also hide natural wonders that often escape the eyes of ordinary tourist. I would recommend these attractions to travelers by name and spirit who are serious in discovering the most pristine parts of the Philippines. Get Out More, discover and event just at least once in your lifetime, you try:

Fly early morning to El Nido, Palawan.

Join Akeanon fisherfolks in pull-fishing before sunrise.

Discover or Rediscover the glorious Negrense heritage.

Dare jump from the top of Mambukal’s Sixth Falls.

Find love by the lighted fountains of The Ruins.

There are more, too many to mention, mean for the strong feet to venture and the sharp eyes to see. Even bigger surprises await for those who venture out from their comfort zones. You can never say you have known the Philippines if you have not gone to travel from the mountains to the seas. Each region, island and/or province has their unique culture or peculiarities that make up a vital strand of what it means to be a Filipino. It is all but sad to be a stranger to one’s own homeland and as the Department of Tourism says It’s More Fun In The Philippines, you must be able to give answers to any tourist why the Philippines can claim it’s #1 for Fun.

I appreciate how BPI nowadays is making it easier for travelers to Get Out More to beautiful tourist spots around the country having less banking problems like paying bills on time even when you are away with just a click.
