South Korea is slowly becoming a popular destination for Filipino travelers. The reason behind this is probably because of the growing influence of Korean dramas and K-Pop to us. Filipinos are becoming more aware of about the Korean culture because of these media. The growing numbers of Korean tourists and students learning English in the Philippines also help us appreciate their cultures even more.
I personally like the Korean culture, specially when it comes to fashion, I watched several Korean Dramas like Princess Hours, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and My Love from the Stars, and listened to the music of 2NE1 and EXO.
I’ve visited South Korea twice already, first was during the autumn of 2015 and the most recent was just few weeks ago during their summer when I was invited to a Seoul, South Korea, FamTour by AirAsia Philippines.
South Korea is pretty accessible to Filipinos, it only takes a 4 hour flight from Cebu, and the number of flights servicing Cebu to Incheon, South Korea route are also growing. One of the airlines flying from Cebu to Incheon, South Korea is AirAsia Philippines. I booked both of my flights from AirAsia Philippines during my visits to South Korea.
