"Promos may save your life and wallet!"
A night where everything is legal, a night where there’s no holds bar, a night that’s wild, a night of making love: Honeymoon. This is your moment; you and your partner. After all the formal ceremonies and stuff, it’s now between the two of you. Are you ready? What will you do first? Who will make the first move? How will you react on it? Will she be satisfied? These are the questions you think on your honeymoon, but before planning your wild night, you are left with one simple but painstaking question:
Where will you go for your honeymoon?
Others may choose destinations and attractions abroad, but not all of us can afford the pricey consequence of having your honeymoon outside of the Philippines. So scratch that plans for an overseas honeymoon. It’s just too painful, for you and your wallet.
Don’t be disappointed. There are lots of tourist destinations here in the Philippines. Imagine 81 provinces to choose from for your honeymoon! 81! But there are a lot of factors to consider:
- Other destinations are already established and well known. Honeymoon is no fun when its crowdie and noisy. There’s no “us” time with that much noise and disturbance.
- The cost is too much! The cost for the hotel and travel is like traveling to Singapore or Malaysia, you and your wallet will cry.
Don’t get stressed too much, don’t give up! We’re here to help you out of your dilemma in choosing your honeymoon getaway. Here are three destinations in the Philippines that are not that visited, not pricey, but provide a fun and exciting honeymoon for you lovers:

Want a simple and quite honeymoon? Batanes is the best! An island on the far north of the Philippines, it’s already 5 “kembot” away from Taiwan.

Only Philippine Airlines and Skyjet are the two major airlines that fly directy towards Basco, Batanes from Manila. Small airlines such as Wakay Air and Sky Pasada now also fly to Batanes daily.

These are just 3 provinces that are seldom visited by “bakasyonistas” but hey, we have the internet, we have Google, any province in the Philippines is just 1 search away. But anywhere you go, always remember, it’s your moment, it’s your wife’s moment, so seize it.
Oops! Don’t forget, honeymoon can be very tiring (if you know what I mean). The travel, the walk, the swim, it’s all tiring, that’s why always bring an Oleia to your travel! Anywhere, anytime, any pain, Oleia is ready, willing and able to cure your pain!
