PHL50 : Backpacking the Philippines in 50 Days

When I first thought of this project last year, I was kinda hesitant to pursue it mainly because it would be expensive and it is going to be an exhausting journey. Then, I thought about collaborating with hotel and resort owners as well as regional, provincial, city and municipal tourism offices and see if they can help me out one way or another. 

I started contacting them and luckily, a number of them have responded positively about the project. When I started receiving emails from companies and tourism officers, I felt really happy and excited. It's a confirmation that my advocacy to promote local tourism to the rest of the Filipinos and the world is doable.

I spent weeks just to lay out the itinerary. There are a lot of considerations to be made like bus and ferry schedules, travel time and etc. Last night, I have finally came up of a schedule where I am heading to in this epic 50-day journey.

Please contact me should you be interested to meet up with me in any of the destinations listed below. If you are a company and would like to help me out in this advocacy, please contact me by email at info(@)escapemanila.com.
