They say there are Filipinos everywhere in the world, from island countries like Japan and Singapore to expansive European countries like Paris and Italy. It might have to do with the fact that we’re natural seafarers, given that we’re surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Pacific on all sides. We love to travel, experience other cultures, and eat foreign foods on holiday—so that when we come home, we have a renewed sense of appreciation for our own.
For this week’s TRAVEL TUESDAY, we give you five destinations for the coming holidays, as seen on local celeb IGs! Plan your next VL and book a flight to the star-approved places below:
After making waves at the New York Fashion Week in early September, it’s time for Heart Evangelista to do the same in Milan, Italy. This glamorous city is home to international fashion houses like Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and so many more. The best thing about visiting Milan is that can spend a few days here and travel to a different Italian city after, such as Florence. That’s where Heart is right now!
St. Tropez, France
Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford headed for the warm and sunny beaches of St. Tropez to celebrate Coleen’s 26th birthday. They started off in Paris before taking a train to the south-eastern side of the country to unwind by the sea. St. Tropez is near France’s border with Italy, so if you have the extra time, you can visit two countries in one trip.
Jhong Hilario is currently in the City of Love—fitting, since he’s accompanied by his girlfriend Maia Leviste. No trip to the famed city would be complete without visiting the Louvre Museum (seen in Jhong’s photo) or the Eiffel Tower, which the couple have also visited based on Maia’s posts. You’ll never run out of picturesque places to see and post on IG.
New York, USA
Start spreading the news… Zsa Zsa Padilla is in the Big Apple! The singer was just in Toronto and New Jersey for Diva 2 Diva 2, a concert featuring fellow songstresses Kuh Ledesma, Nanette Inventor, and Mitch Valdes. These ladies are now in New York and have enjoyed some good food and great views. Popular destinations include Times Square, Central Park, Fifth Avenue… the list goes on and on.
It’s back to back travels for Bea Alonzo, who visited Dubai last week and has since been spotted in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. Lisbon boasts lovely weather and beautiful scenery where old meets new and everything is vibrant with color. Plus, Bea said they had “super good food.”
So, where are you headed next holiday?
