The BIC Amazing Asia Getaway got me excited as I recently got issued my passport. After a very, very long time, I now have a passport that will allow me to travel outside the Philippines. Of course, the first on my itinerary to visit is Asia. First off, most the countries in Asia does not require a visa for Philippine passport holder. And this includes Hong Kong and Thailand. While Japan has a relaxed visa application process for Pinoys.
Of course, it’s more than just the ease of travel. It’s more of the opportunity to visit the countries and experience a different culture. Much can be said about Asia. Prosperous and diverse culture, sprawling fields and oceans, glorious feasts of sumptuous food. All these can be found on the three of the most popular destinations this continent has to offer.
Our neighbor and a top-of-the-mind choice for quick weekend getaways, Hong Kong is a small but adventure-packed country that attracts travelers all over the world. Of course, there are the favorites—Hong Kong Disneyland, Ocean Park, and the breathtaking view at The Peak—but there is also something to be said about the richness of their culture. Temples are copious in this country, so go on a mesmerizing trip to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery, home to hundreds of life-size, gilded and unique Buddha statues.
Then, visit the locals’ go-to place for bargain hunts, Mong Kok Ladies’ Market, a haven for cheap clothes, gadgets and souvenirs. Come nightfall, take a stroll down Temple Street Night Market where you’ll find a lively street bazaar with hundreds of pop up stalls selling all sorts of things and a dizzying array of local street food.
And if you’re up for it, party hard at Lan Kwai Fong, which boasts of over a hundred bars, restaurants, and nightlife joints. Whether you’re up for stylish wine pairings of ludicrous jelly shots, the steep street will ensure you a good time.
Meanwhile, Thailand, Bangkok may be known for traffic jam, but it is an opulent and incredibly fascinating destination. Explore the Bangkok via the city’s iconic 3-wheel ride, Tuk Tuk. They say the best place to find the best food in Thailand like Pad Thai and Tangy Som Tam is on the streets where all locals eat.
The most popular attraction here is the Grand Palace which was once the king’s home. Travelers must also not miss a visit to Wat Pho where the world-famous Reclining Buddha can be found. Experience the renowned Bangkok Puppet Show that tells a classic folk tale backed by live orchestra music, made more magnificent by the skilled craftsmanship that went into the making of the props.
Bangkok is also known as a shopping haven- with Chatuchak Market leading the roster. It houses over 8,000 stalls and 27 acres of space, making it one of the largest markets in the world. Every item imaginable can be found here at bargain and local prices. And where else can you experience a traditional Thai massage as done well as the country that it originated from? There are many parlors and local spas that could renew your energy and relax your body after a day well-spent traveling.
Last but definitely not the least, a place that is probably on top of everyone’s bucket list, the vibrant city of Tokyo, Japan. Others would prefer to walk Tokyo’s streets and feel as though they’re in a video game, always buzzing with activity and running into animated characters. Others prefer the calmer side of Tokyo—its temples, museums, and serene gardens. Either way, the city has a place for every type of traveler.
Revel in the madness of Shibuya crossing; eat at the best and first Michelin-starred ramen restaurant in the world, Tsuta Tokyo; catch the latest trends and indulge in style at Harajuku; snap a photo with the beautiful cherry blossoms; stand upon the city’s tallest tower, Tokyo Skytree, and see through its glass floors; take a trip down history to the Imperial Palace, home to the Emperor of Japan; and, if you have time, make your way to Osaka and get lost in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
