The pandemic disrupted life and plans, there were “lost time” as millennial and generation Z would describe it. It was time away from friends and family, away from different pursuits – one of which is traveling. But as COVID-19 restrictions have started to ease, travel, once highly restrictive and prohibitive, has become possible again.
If there’s anything better than traveling again, it’s the build-up. Daydreaming of the perfect destination, scrolling through unique places to stay, and browsing travel guides for the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants and local must-sees are all opportunities to start wanderlusting before you’ve even packed your bags.
But when does the journey begin? While planning may sometimes be overwhelming – mapping out nitty gritty flights, connections, accommodation, and a whole lot of pit stops. But, for today’s travelers, expectations are always set by non-travel experiences. They want flexible solutions with a simple click experience.
Both local and foreign tourists are in for a treat as the first-ever Filipino-owned booking app is set to launch next year to help travelers explore the Philippines with ease. Happy Hotels will give you easy, accessible, and packed information about your favorite local destinations. They have teamed up with the best, budget-friendly, and most accessible hotels nationwide. Its features include but are not limited to comparing prices, finding hotels with your specific requirements, determining the best accommodation through the app’s rating and review system, and different activities you can do in your favorite destinations.
What’s even more exciting is that the app empowers local hotel owners to showcase what real “Filipino hospitality” is and at the same time gives the opportunity to local workers and communities. Happy Hotels aims to bring everyone a smile by giving a wide range of choices from hotels, resorts, restaurants, and destinations at the tip of your fingertips.
