Travel Tips to Manila

Planning is a good way when travelling, either domestically or internationally, but do not disregard the fact that things can and most likely would not go as planned. This could either be due to suddenly the activity you want to do is unavailable or if more logistical issues force you to think of other ways to do things. Keep in mind that plan is a good base, but when you are travelling, and many external factors are involved, it will be a different kind of adventure.

1) Stay protected

Throughout this pandemic situation, always keep hygiene when visiting unique places here. Keep washing your hand, use a hand sanitiser, wear a protective face mask, and dispose of the used mask. This might prevent you from being infected easily. Avoid crowded places too by planning a suitable time before going there.

2) Bring extra credit and ATM cards during your travel

There is a saying that does not keep all your cash with your person when you travel, but that does not mean you should not bring extra cash. Keep extra credit and ATM cards with you when you travel. This will help you when things go wrong, and believe me. It might be. Keeping cards instead of cash with your person is better much safer.

Traveling to GenSan, Philippines

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I think we still are having a few pieces of that dreaded jet lag left from our recent trip, but we’re on our way to finally being fully back to normal.

So after sharing with you the summary of our month-long vacation to my hometown, General Santos City in the Philippines, also known as GenSan, I thought I might as well share with you the very long flight we took to get there. It’s not the most exciting for some, I guess, but knowing that at the end of our long trip is our much-awaited vacation, not to mention, seeing our family again after many years, it was still exciting albeit tiring and totally worth it.

Gorgeous sunset over the pacific.

 HOW TO GET THERE

Our journey started  in our city of Asheville, North Carolina with a flight to Chicago, connecting on to Tokyo, Japan, then on to  Manila, Philippines and finally, a domestic flight to my hometown GenSan. The total travel including layovers was more or less 22 hours not to include the few hours that we stayed overnight in the NAIA Terminal 2 in Manila before our flight the following day to GenSan. We left Asheville in the morning of June 18th (US time) and arrived GenSan around noon time on June 20th (Evening of June 19th – US time). We have a 12 hour difference.

General Santos City or GenSan is located in the southernmost part of the Philippines. It is known as the ‘Tuna Capital of the Philippines” and the home of the famous boxer, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. The flight from Manila is less than 2 hours via Philippine Airlines (PAL).

TOUCHDOWN CHICAGO

We left Asheville at 9:30 A.M. on June 18th via United Airlines and was in Chicago in less than 3 hours. We had less than 2 hours layover before our next flight to Tokyo.

Our son took this photo of the Windy City when we were about to land. He got the window seat so he got the good view of the city from the plane.

Before our departure at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, the hubs was busy talking to his bro’.

On board United Airlines to Tokyo.

TOUCHDOWN TOKYO/NARITA

The flight from Chicago to Tokyo was more or less 12 hours. This was the longest flight we had. Then we had to wait for 3 hours before our flight to Manila.

Too lazy to walk after the long flight. 🙂

Our son was delighted by this cute stuff at the Tokyo/Narita airport.

TOUCHDOWN MANILA

We arrived in Manila at around 9:00 P.M. on June 19 at NAIA Terminal 3 on board ANA. Both United Airlines and ANA gave us excellent services with very charming flight attendants. We had to transfer to NAIA Terminal 2 for our domestic flight to GenSan the following day, June 20th. We only had like 8 hours before our flight to GenSan so instead of staying at a hotel, we decided to just stay at the airport. The waiting seemed to be so quick because we were already allowed to check-in at 2:00 A.M. But we didn’t get a good night sleep at all. And that’s why I looked like I just came out of the bedroom the following day when I finally saw my family. In short, I looked haggard, not to mention, I forgot to take photos when we landed in GenSan. 🙂

The hubs giving Jollibee (Philippines’ famous fast food mascot) a high-five. This was at NAIA Terminal 2 in Manila where we had our dinner that night we arrived.

Our travel to GenSan may be long, but the good thing is, it was a smooth trip and we never ran into delayed flights or any problems at all which we were so thankful for. And I will never forget the heat that I felt on my cheeks as soon as we came out of the airport. Only in a tropical country you would feel such heat, but I will never change it for the world. The joy in seeing your family again after a long time was definitely priceless and I bet they felt the same way.
