5 ‘sulit’ moments every traveler dreams of
MANILA, Philippines – We've all heard about people quitting their jobs just to travel the world. Some days, while squeezing ourselves inside a packed MRT with a broken air conditioner and no proper ventilation on our way to work, we wonder, can I do that, too?
If it was that easy to save enough money to travel, most of us would probably be sitting on a monobloc chair in a hole-in-the-wall cafeteria in Ho Chi Minh right now, slurping the most flavorful pho beef noodles, or inside Wat Pho, one of Bangkok’s temples, offering our prayers to the 46-meter gold-plated reclining Buddha.
But what if you don’t have to leave your job or drastically cut down on your expenses? Here are five sulit adventures that prove you can be the master of your own travel dreams:
Traveling is a social activity. But once in a while, traveling solo can be beneficial for you. It helps you conquer your fear of being alone, allowing you to be independent and to feel more comfortable doing things by yourself. Affordable flights to local destinations like Iloilo or international destinations in Asia like Cambodia might just be the key to self-discovery.
Want to know if he or she is the one? Go on a trip to romantic destinations like Japan, South Korea, or Boracay which have now become more accessible and affordable than ever. When you travel with your partner, you’re plucked away from the daily patterns of life. You’ll be able to test your compatibility and get to know more about each other. Best of all, couples who go on trips always come back home happier and more satisfied.
There are trips that are just better taken with friends than any other people in your life. An arduous hike to Mt. Kinabalu in Malaysia becomes more bearable if you can tirelessly chat and laugh your way past slippery slopes and cliff edges. Meanwhile, a shameless Lechon-tasting spree in Cebu becomes more enjoyable if you’re with people who share the same appetite for good food and sulit travel deals.
Dream destination come true
It’s difficult to catch really cheap flights going to dream destinations like Bali or Batanes, but sometimes you can get lucky, and score flights to these spots for a lower price than usual. There's nothing better than getting closer to ticking these destinations off our bucket list, even if you might have to save up on other things.
