When In Manila, we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. Sometimes a quick getaway is all the escape we need to revive & refresh. Planning these kinds of trips need not be stressful too. Sometimes even answering the question “where will you go?” can be easily answered if you know where to search.
Once you start thinking about pristine beaches, the fresh air of the mountains, local food, dive spots and a thousand more adventures in the thousands of islands of the Philippines, you get excited. Your horizon expands even more with the rest of the world right at your fingertips – Europe, North America, Africa, Asia.
After dreaming of that getaway, the next question would be your itinerary and accommodations. To some, researching online specific places to go is a thrill, but some just want to do away with the guesswork of where to go, stay and eat. In my latest search for adventure, I’ve discovered TravelMallPh which takes care of most of the itinerary guesswork for you with its travel & tour packages.
I know, the next question is – is it affordable?

Ok lets not go far, lets try Boracay :
Since enjoying the beach & the crowd is the Boracay adventure itself, all you need is a good place to stay. For just Php 2,800 you get to stay in Station 1 which is a pretty good deal knowing how prices there can get.
I tried comparing it with other travel sites and it still ends up 10-20% lower. The reason behind these better prices is that It’s backed by a B2B travel wholesale provider that supplies packages to over 300 travel agencies in the Philippines. Directly booking with TravelMall actually gets you wholesale rate. With TravelMallPh you book & buy directly since there is no third party travel agency.
With TravelMallPh you’ve got airfare, hotel & meals, transfers and tours covered at the most affordable rates. Planning vacations need not be stressful and expensive because all you need to know is the the secret to travelling smart.
When In Manila, go ahead, start collecting moments.
