Since I have been attending the TravelMart Sale ng Bayan, I have an idea that it is being held every first week of September. But for this year, I was not really that excited and don’t even have any plans of taking a peek of this yearly biggest travel/tourism bazaar due to personal reasons.

Hmm.. But maybe, just maybe, it was a destiny that my boss needed a cheap flight back to Manila so I volunteered myself to go there and check it for her.

Yes, maybe, it was a destiny — For the first time, the 22nd Philippine Travel Mart Sale ng Bayan was not held in Megatrade Hall. It was moved to a bigger and better venue at SMX Convention Center, Pasay City.

The biggest travel sale will be held from September 2-4, 2011 by none other than the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA), Inc. This year, they are adopting “Philippines, Your Bestfriend in Asia” to provide opportunity for ALL travel enthusiasts.

So if ever that you have plans to go on a trip this year or even up until next year, grab this opportunity to book and buy tours, hotel accommodations, airfares, seafares, adventure packages, and tour and travel packages at a great discount.

    I mean Starstruck with the TV’s Queen of Travel Tita Susan Calo Medina atTravel Mart 2011 – @chasingphilippines is a little vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people
    interested about everything’ve got to say. Just
    my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
