While people were going out of Metro Manila last holidays, on the other hand, we the promdis, took advantage of it and went to tour in the concrete jungle.
We stayed in a beautiful condo in Makati and the staycation was soooooo worth it.
It was near greenbelt and other malls, and near a park too. It feels so odd to be a tourist while you see busy people walking fast in the prime business district in the Philippines.. and to think that one time, I was once like that busy bitchy person wearing high heeled (name your shoe brand here) in the streets of the concrete jungle..
Anyway, so you asked me how I was able to save 50%? Before we decided to go to the Metro, I was searching around on where to best spend a mini reunion. The most basic private pool that we can get is worth 10,000.00 pesos for 24 hours, excluding the food and the transportation expenses.
But when we had this staycation in the heart of Makati, the styled condo with complete amenities costs only (tada!) $75 for 5 people. We even had more budget for food and transportation which is an estimate of 2000 pesos. Total spending cost is around 5000.00 pesos only compare to spending 10000 pesos on a private resort in Laguna, the staycation in Makati is a super duper deal.
But I also remember sharing is caring so I need to practice what I preach xD..
I also had a deal with the super gracious host Dianne and Louise because they gave me a discount, soooo if you want to have a perfect staycation like we did, feel free to ask me so I can refer you to them..
Want to have a discount too? I’m giving you P1,113 travel credit once you sign up at airbnb using this link… so there you go, hopefully, more Filipino people in different sectors of society, will get to travel their own country and also get to have fun.
