Meet the New Generation of Rich Young Filipino Jet Setters
Long before travel influencers toured exotic destinations, there were the jet set. The term, coined in the late '50s, was used to describe the international elite who traveled around the world to vacation in far-flung places and attend fashionable events.
During the '70s, as air travel became more accessible, the term died out. But, there are still those that uphold the phrase's original meaning. From summers in Cap Ferrat to winters in Gstaad, here are the new crop of Filipino jet setters you need to know.
The daughter of port magnate Enrique Razon keeps busy as an investor, yoga teacher, and DJ. She still has time to travel all over the world to destinations like the Maldives, Palawan, and more, to name a few.
Milka Romero, the daughter of businessman-politican Mikee Romero, writes "sushi, beach, polo, and dive" on her Instagram bio. So, it's no surprise that she favors local destinations like Palawan, Batangas, and Quezon. But, that doesn't mean that you won't catch her in countries like Japan, Croatia, and France.
As the scion of one of the most illustrious families in the Philippines, jet setting comes natural to Marty Lopez who spends his free time taking photographs on hiking or sailing excursions in Spain, Monaco, and Switzerland.
The daughter of Gerard and Terri Madrigal (yes of that Madrigal family) calls Manila and Los Angeles home. On Instagram, she documents her life, adventures, and travels to cities all over the world.
Jet setting is an expensive lifestyle. So, it's no surprise that Rocio Zobel, one of the rich kids we included on a previous list, is part of the elite group of jet setters. Zobel is the youngest daughter of Iñigo Zobel (he ranked 18th on Forbes' Philippines 50 Richest 2020) and she goes from family-owned Sotogrande in Spain to Paris in a flash.
