The holidays is around the corner and malls are starting to play Christmas songs. If you’re like me who usually avoids the holiday shopping rush and would usually go for affordable but quality finds, travelling to Guam might be your best option to shop til’ you drop. To make it easy for you, Cebu Pacific has a special promo for all passengers travelling to and from the US territory.
Beginning this September up until December 15, 2017, all passengers flying between Manila and Guam who pre-purchase baggage allowance of 40 kilograms will get an additional 25 kilograms, free-of-charge. That’s a total of 65 kilograms of check-in baggage that would equal to the weight of your typical “balikbayan box”. The free baggage allowance will be added upon check-in at the airport.
A couple of days ago, I was invited by Cebu Pacific for their media dinner at the Summit Galleria Hotel in Cebu with special guests from the Guam Visitors Bureau. During one of the presentations, they were able to highlight how Guam is your perfect shopping destination from the Philippines. Flight time is about 3.5 hours from Manila and when you reach Guam, then you can literally shop til’ you drop since there are shopping malls open 24 hours a day! Shopping in Guam means that you can buy popular brands at outlet shops TAX-FREE!
Aside from shopping, Guam offers beautiful white sand beaches that is open to the public! Since I’m a beach lover, this is probably one thing that got me excited to travel to Guam then the food and shopping came last ( hahaha :p ). Guam is set to hold the Shop Guam Festival (SGF) this November, one of the biggest shopping events in the Pacific region. SGF showcases Guam’s tax-free shopping while offering incentives and other activities from the myriad of retail establishments on the island.
Cebu Pacific started flying between Manila and Guam in March 2016. CEB currently flies up to three times weekly to and from Guam, offering seamless connections to a total of 37 domestic and 26 other international destinations across Asia, Australia, USA and the Middle East.
This news got me excited! Guam is now part of my travel plans. Let me know when are you planning to visit Guam, we might have the same dates!
