The Happy Trip!

Welcome to The Happy Trip!

This blog is about travel, destinations, festivals, and much more.

We started this blog in 2011 as a hobby, just a venue for us to post our travels to our friends.

Then we realized that more and more people are demanding more pieces of information, brands started to make a partnership with us and our Adsense started to generate income.

It was then that we realized that our followers are really growing. We started to work on our SEO, improved our old posts making the site an excellent travel source of information.

    For those who are planning to visit this country this is a complete guide for the possible beautiful places and activities they can choose from. However due to the COVID 19 pandemic this activities have been limited due to travel restrictions, safety protocols and prohibition of public events. In my opinion, in order to attract tourist back to any travel destination,
    Businesses should intensify the Advertisements on promotions relative to Group Tour by by making a Live Video Marketing of products and services offered by the country.
    Provide Lesser Travel Restrictions to vaccinated tourists and improve confidence of tourist in terms of COVID prevention of virus by ensuring that workers are vaccinated and regular disinfection schedule.

    In this digital age, everything are available in the internet hence it will be advantageous if all the needed information’s on current discounts, tour promos and other services are posted via internet advertisements. Prevention and control measures are essential for the protection of workers and the reopening and continued operation of the tourism industry.


    What do you think this place is representing?
    – I chose Western Visayas because, though there are a lot of tourist destinations in the country, Western Visayas have also a lot to offer. Western Visayas is known for its celebration of yearly festivals. I believe that it represents the history and culture of every Negrosanons. It also represents the country’s natural form with its beautiful beaches and mountains.
    If you are the leader/head of the tourism in the country, what will you do to improve this destination?
    – If I am the head of the tourism in the Philippines, I will help improve this destination by giving it a light and focus on promoting it, because here in the Philippines there are a lot of tourist destination, in which we were given the moniker as Pearl of the Orient Sea, but destinations such as Palawan, Baguio, Albay have already been introduced to tourist and is already widely known, so I will focus on promoting tourist destinations that are unfamiliar to tourist but will also “wow” them when they visit, specifically here in Negros, we have the Don Salvador Benedicto which is a breath of fresh air, as well as the Campuestuhan Highland Resort.

  3. Great content and team! Hope you can give us insight when it comes to travel budgeting. Cheers!

      Catholic institutions should not force anybody to become one of them.Because we are living in democratic country, Which is we have our own freedom to do what we want as long as it’s not against in country law. Each of us can choose what we want to be or where we want to be. Like in religion if u want to belong in any religion you are free to do it. People now a day don’t have care where you belong as long as you’re a good person or employe it’s doesn’t matter what religion you’re belong. Because it’s not about religion it’s about how u treat your fellow human.
