My grandparents are Chinese and I was born in the Philippines.
I LOVE my country.Its emerald rice fields, teeming megacities, graffiti-splashed jeepneys, smoldering volcanoes, bug-eyed tarsiers, fuzzy water buffalo and smiling, happy-go-lucky people.
Come to visit my country. You can explore diverse landscapes, from pristine beaches and coral reefs to lush mountains and volcanoes, as well as vibrant cities and rural villages. Get ready to experience the colorful festivals, cuisine, music, and art of our Filipino people. It is a place where fun, friendship, and hospitality are always in abundance.
I‘ve traveled through southeast Asia and visited over 10 countries currently.Traveling is not a hobby or passion anymore, now it has become an important part of my life. I am trying to share the best experiences to everyone and do my best to offer tour assistance to travelers.
How did you get involved in travel?
"My aunt is a tour guide. Every time I visit her, she will tell me her stories in different traveling destinations. I feel it was very interesting. And I think traveling can be one of my career options since I was a kid. When I studied in college, I liked to help my classmates to make trip plan and organize tours. Fortunately, they liked it and I started getting appreciation from people in my circle. When I finished schooling, I embarked on a two-year apprenticeship to learn the ins and outs of inbound travel, more and more people asked me for my tips.It is always enjoyable to combine my expertise with my passion for travel."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I traveled with my friends to China in 2010. We did the Lijiang River cruise in Guilin. It was heavily rainy when we started the tour in the early morning. We got wet and almost can not see anything clearly through the window. However, two hours later, the rain stopped. We saw the mysterious Karst hills layer by layer, just like the traditional Chinese ink painting, with the looming mountains surrounded by mists against the Lijiang River. It was amazing! Then I told myself never be discouraged to give up, and to believe that beautiful things will happen after distancing myself from negativity."
