Travel Thursday on Empty Streets: National Geographic Top 25 Adventure Destinations

Posted 7:15 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,
I was riding a cab when I heard the news of National Geographic releasing an article about their Top 25 Adventure Trips for 2010. It caught my attention because they named the Philippines as one of their choices and of course I just couldn't help but smile with glee. Imagine what that would do to our economy :). I guess when you think about it, the Philippines does have over a thousand islands to visit and if you are spending dollars (US) the exchange rate is pretty high and the cost of living here is pretty low - you really get a lot out of what you would be spending for. Cool thing is that there are a lot other countries that have been needing a lot of tourist attention that has been added to the list.

Here is what they have from their National Geographic blog:

The 25 Best New Trips for 2010

I cant wait to see what will be the result of this to the countries that have been mentioned. 2009 was so rough for our country, hopefully this is a sign that things are definitely going to brighter by 2010.

I visited the Philippines for several times and I love the place. There are so much to explore but it was not safe for a girl to travel on her own. Wish there was an alternative for me. :(
