It was on my birthday and we were so busy during December, thought we didn’t make it on time. Plus, my hubby is Filipino so visa applied. But yeah, he got it on time!!!
Since there is no direct flight from Manila to Hokkaido so we just need to do little homework.
Day 1 – Flight from Manila to Hokkaido , Dinner at Ramen Arena
Day 2 – Otaru Day
Day 3 – Sapporo Clock Tower (Christmas Fiesta), Sapporo TV Tower, Hokkaido Government office
Day 4 – Mount Moiwa Ropeway, Sapporo Beer Garden
Day 5 – Flight back to Manila
Let’s start the Journey. We took flight with Jet Star and the flight start from Manila at 9AM, transit at Osaka, then touch down at Hokkaido in the night. ( I used to fly from Bangkok direct to Hokkaido, I wish one day Manila have direct flight too)
Visited Borcay Day 2 after re-opening, all I can say it is hassle but if you well prepare like what requirement said. You will be OK!
We landed at Caticlan Airport at New Arrival, we took shuttle to pier its cost us 700 peso.(which is you can get something local and cheaper, just wait) – Something we noticed when we pass the check point ( Verified and get stamp certified approved to enter island)
The island shuttle reuse the ticket which is they should not. One thing, we didn’t pay is when you Leave Boracay, No Environment to Pay again.
So when we leave, we took tricycle front of Mcodnal 5 of us cost 120peso. Nothing fancy, not VIP but stay local and save our budget. Why would we spend more and get less than expect right ?
Boracay sand it perfectly fine. Always love it here.
Come June, Filipinos can go to Taiwan visa-free as the Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has granted an exemption for Philippine travelers, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Manila has confirmed to ABS-CBN News.
The visa-free grant will be implemented on a trial basis for a year, starting June 1, 2017.
The TECO has yet to release details, but a Taiwanese news website reported on Wednesday that Filipinos may stay in Taiwan visa-free for up to 30 days.
The new policy is part of efforts of Taiwan to draw in more travelers from Southeast Asia.
Last October, Taiwan relaxed visa requirements for Filipinos, offering visa-free entry to Filipinos who have been issued visas to enter Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, any of the Schengen countries, the United Kingdom, or the United States.
TECO in Manila is expected to make the formal announcement on the visa exemption after the Holy Week.
Taiwan is an emerging destination for Filipino travelers, as the flight takes less than two hours.
