Kating-kati ka na ba mag-travel? We feel you! Revenge travel is real.
In fact, the Philippines’ Department of Tourism (DOT) has seen the rise of revenge travel in 2022 as local tourists once again head to top destinations like Baguio, Boracay, and Palawan. More and more Filipinos, even travellers worldwide, turn to revenge travel to release all the pent-up frustrations brought about by the pandemic.

What exactly is revenge travel?
Simply put, revenge travel is the eagerness to travel again. As lockdowns and quarantine measures change, the desire to seek a sense of normalcy grows, too. We yearn to return to doing the things we love, including travel. Like revenge spending or impulse buying during a crisis, revenge travel is its counterpart to make up for the lost time and fun due to COVID-19.
But how do you know you’re ready for revenge travel? Let us show you the signs!
1. May #TravelEnvy ka
Of course, it all starts with inggit! As you scroll through your social media feeds, you’ll probably see photos of friends travelling to a beach or a famous destination, at mapapa “sana all” ka nalang! It’s travel envy, and a major sign that you need to get your revenge travel real soon.
2. Abangers ka lagi ng seat sale at travel deals
Dahil may travel envy ka na, nagpupuyat ka na para mag abang ng seat sale at travel deals. You follow all the social media pages of airlines, join flight deals group, and download ShopBack, a pre-shopping portal with different categories including travel.
And, do you know that travellers are now eyeing to travel to countries which are opening their borders to tourism? In fact, Pinoys can visit South Korea’s Jeju Island & Gangwon Province visa-free in June. Likewise, Japan will accept fully vaccinated tourists starting June 2022. Our neighbouring countries like Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand have already opened their borders to Filipinos as well. So, now is really the best time to plan your revenge travel!
3. Nananaginip ka na nagbabakasyon ka
“This is your captain speaking. We are about to land at…”
*poof* Magigising ka sa katotohanan na nasa bahay ka lang pala! Hay.
4. Excited kang mag-research
Hanggang panaginip na lang ba? Syempre hindi! Mag-plaplano ka na kung saan pupunta, mag-re-research nang maigi, at tanong-tanong rin sa friends ‘pag may time.
