Top 3 Backpacking Destinations

Backpacking is a great way to see what countries have to offer. From scenic mountain views, to gorgeous waterways and hidden destinations you would never see if you were visiting the mainlands. With this said, certain packing destinations are going to offer more to visitors than others.

One extra thing to think about before going on a long holiday is what to do with the valuables in your house.

One way to get around this is to make use of storage facilities and store your belongings under 24 hour security.

These are the top 3 packing destinations to consider for the avid outdoor enthusiast, and those who want to enjoy the great hiking trails, while taking in the most scenic views possible during your excursions.

Exploring Vietnam & Cambodia in Php 15,000

Mui Ne Beach, Vietnam

It never crossed my mind that I'd be visiting Vietnam and Cambodia last year. Most people think that traveling abroad requires a lot of time and resources. In this day and age, people can now travel abroad cheaply all thanks to promo fares. All you need is a dose of perseverance, a dash of patience, and an ounce of creativity and resourcefulness.

In this post, I'd like to prove that your Php 15,000 will go a long way in those two aforementioned countries. Round trip fare to and from Manila, the exorbitant travel tax, and international terminal fee are included. Comfort is not compromised either!

Kota Kinabalu in 50mm

Pulau Mamutik, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park

When I went to Kota Kinabalu three years ago, I immediately fell in love with the place. The city's not that crowded, quaint, and affordable. Not to mention that their food tastes great! Last month, I went back to Kota Kinabalu to strike one item in my bucket list - parasailing abroad. The plan didn't push through when I first went there three years ago due to inclement weather.

I couldn't enjoy my Kota Kinabalu trip without these crazy and kaladkarin people - Ria, Kisha, Pau, and Fra. We truly had a blast despite the limited time.
