Travelling probably is one of the few things that you can spend on but get more out of it. It gives you a wider perspective, makes you more independent and it gives you a unique sense of accomplishment by allowing you to get a better view of the world we live in. We would love to travel more but of course, there are always budget constraints that make your next exploration a little bit difficult to plan. Don’t let this get in the way of your wanderlust – with proper planning, you can have a budget-savvy travel and explore places as much as you can.
Even with a limited budget, you can scratch that familiar itch by exploring your very own country. Travel locally; it is less expensive than travelling abroad and it also support local economies. You get to learn more about your country and you’re also helping your very own “kababayans” involved in the tourism industry.
When travelling on a tight budget, go for public transportation options such ferries, RORO, buses and jeepneys. “Special trips” can be quite expensive and this will leave you at the mercy of devious drivers so if you need to go out of the regular routes, opt for a motorcycle or rent a bike to drive yourself to your destination.
