We all have tough days at work or in school, and the only motivation we could think of is the upcoming weekend. When luck favors you that a holiday comes after the weekend, there's no better way to spend it than traveling!
Take advantage of the upcoming long weekend and book that flight now because 72 hours to spare is gold!
To help you decide on which country or destinations to visit, here are options to choose from:
Would you mind visiting a jam-packed city when there are lots of attractions to see and experience? Considered as a business and tourism hub, Hong Kong has a lively street vibe with towering apartment buildings and bustling street markets. Its MTR system makes major tourist attractions accessible and helps tourists and locals alike in saving time for transportation. Here's a tip: Never leave Hong Kong without experiencing a Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and of course, having fun at Disneyland!
Just 2 and a half hours away from Manila is Bangkok, a popular destination if you're feeling like going on a shopping spree on a weekend! Bangkok's Chatuchak market has great bargains for clothes, shoes, bags, and of course, street food such as Pad Thai, Mango Sticky Rice, and the famed Thai Milk Tea. For fresh finds, try Thailand's unique way of shopping for goods by visiting the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi.
Never be too touristy to take a photo with the Merlion as your backdrop because no one leaves Singapore without such memory! The modern and progressive city of Singapore offers astonishing views, starting off with the famed Supertrees at the Gardens by the Bay. And if you really want to get the likes and hearts, visit the ArtScience Museum in Marina Bay Sands for your digital universe-inspired photos.
Aside from grabbing a cup (or two!) of authentic Taiwanese bubble tea, your first order of business must be taking a selfie from Taiwan's skyscraper, Taipei 101. Ride one of the world's fastest elevators as it takes you up the 89th floor of the observatory deck with the view of the city of Taipei.
If you're looking for more serene tourist destination on your getaway, visit Angkor Wat, one of the world's most famous UNESCO heritage sites. It is best to visit this site on afternoons so you could catch the golden hour for more drama in your photos. But remember to always follow your guide when approaching or entering the temples and respect the monks, as well as the locals you see around.
When visiting these cities, always see to it to be informed of their traditions as courtesy to the locals and their culture. Also, do not forget to take lots of photos to preserve your memories! If you aren't that type who gets on your knees or basks under the afternoon sun just to be able to snap the perfect photo, SweetEscape's got you covered!
