Surely, most people dream of travelling abroad and taking pictures of the beautiful tourist spots that are truly Instagram-worthy!
However, the only downside of everyone’s vision is the lack of funds. Everyone knows that it would cost a fortune to travel around the world, not only because of the air fare but also because of the documents required to be submitted before the issuance of passport and visa.
On the contrary, these hindrances can’t stop us from fulfilling our dreams. A Facebook user named Noid Oropesa Ragian shared a hack which will let Filipinos see international tourist spots without the need to acquire huge amount of money and certain documents, and without having to leave the country!
Oropesa became creative and traveled locally to visit the spots in Zamboanga City which resembles the iconic places abroad and in the country as well.
Here’s the Zamboanga version of the Man-made forest in Bohol:
Want to see the alternative for New Zealand’s famous hills?
What about the iconic stairs in Thailand?
Or perhaps, do you dream of seeing Cape Town up close?
If you want to have a feel of Japan’s ambiance, here’s a great substitute for their Hokkaido Bridge!
No need to travel all the way to Baguio for the foggy mountain. They have it here too!
Want a quick Puerto Rico escapade?
Oropesa showed that these international spots have an identical equivalent here in the Philippines if only citizens are eager enough to look for hidden gems. Moreover, her post helped promote the country’s tourism.
Facebook users who had seen her post are quickly encouraged to visit the area, as Oropesa succeeded in letting netizens see the beauty of Zamboanga.
It’s not too late to plan for your ultimate summer travel this year! Would you like to see these sceneries in person?
