What to do in Guam? Pilgrimage, Shopping and Sightseeing!

I found myself on American soil, enjoying the very best that the island life has to offer, and it only took me a 3-hour flight from Manila.

That’s faster than learning how to say “Hafa Adai,” which means “Hello” in Chamorro, the native language of Guam, by the way.

So, what’s there to do in Guam?

To begin with, Guam is a U.S. island territory in Micronesia in Western Pacific or on the eastern side of the Philippines. It is famous for its tropical beaches, age-old customs and, of course, tax-free discounted goods from the States.

But aside from shopping, many religious Filipinos also frequent the island to learn more about its rich Catholic history, but more specifically, St. Pedro Calungsod.

Kansai, Japan Itinerary! Exploring Osaka, Nara and Mie using the Kintetsu Railway Pass!

Let’s chase the cherry blossoms of Kansai!

Kansai or Western Japan is an area that includes Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Mie.

In spring, the region transforms into this beautiful destination filled with a sea of cherry blossom trees awash with all shades of pink.

Besides cherry blossom viewing, our itinerary also included other attractions in each city we passed by. We skipped Kyoto for this trip, mainly because we’ve been there several times, but if you haven’t been to Kyoto, I strongly suggest you add it to your itinerary.

Here’s how you can make the most of your Kansai Pass and save money on your travel budget.

• Kansai, Japan Itinerary! Exploring Osaka, Nara & Mie using the Kintetsu Railway Pass!

Fly to Bangkok with the Love Bus A350! @flypal

Forty years ago, Philippine Airlines unveiled its most innovative plane at that time, the Airbus A300B4 proudly bearing the Love Bus “kiss mark” logo.

So fittingly, during PAL’s 5th anniversary, it is yet again another exciting time to fly with the revival of the Love Bus—the same iconic logo placed on their 5th ultra-modern A350 Airbus!

But what makes the A350 so special? The next-generation A350 incorporates a range of technological touchstones that improve both passenger experience and aircraft operations aboard long-haul routes. It is installed with more quiet Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, the most fuel-efficient engines in service today. With its extra wide body, personal tv screen, free inflight wifi and heartfelt Pinoy hospitality, you’ll definitely fall in love with flying over and over again.

Airbus A350s currently offer business, premium economy and economy seats. Here’s my experience on the A350…
