Top 10 Travel Destinations for Filipinos in 2020
A new year means new travel plans to lay out and new countries to finally check off your bucket list. Now, if you're a travel junkie who also happens to be wildly indecisive, deciding which place to fly to next can prove to be quite the pickle. The easy solution? Just follow the crowd.
According to travel booking site Klook, much like 2019, Filipinos are still most inclined to travel within Asian destinations, with Siem Reap, Hanoi and Halong Bay, and Pattaya leading the top 10 this 2020, while Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh tops the list.
Described by Lonely Planet as "Vietnam at its most dizzying," Ho Chi Minh, or the city of Saigon, is most known for its rich cultural history, French architecure, and its wealth of intricate temples and pagodas. Most travel sites recommend for tourists to visit the famed Notre Dame Cathedral before immersing yourself into its vibrant night life, depending on which part of the city you're in. Where District 1 is teeming with rooftop bars and casinos, District 3, on the other hand, is ideal for backpackers looking for a satisfying and cheap food crawl 'round the city streets. Not bad for a potential travel destination to consider.
