Where people go if they have extra money this Holiday?

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A few days from now, we will be welcoming the year of the roaster 2017. And before we end this year, most of us received a 13th month pay and Christmas Bonus so we may have the extra money to spend aside from the monthly salary. Did you receive a 13th month pay or a Christmas bonus? If yes, then you might have an extra money to spend to travel or what to do with your extra money?

As part of my year-end post, I would like my Facebook and HIBSTERS friends will be part of it. So I ask them if they have an extra money, where to go or what to do? I got a good response from them and I would like to share some of their responses.

But before I share their responses, if I have an extra money this season I would like to take my family in the Southern part of Cebu or Negros Lakawon Island for a couple of days. Hopefully, I can bring my whole family for a vacation this season but if not this summer.

So I promised, I would like to share some responses of my Facebook and HIBSTER friends especially travel bloggers which some of them answered quite pretty amazing responses.

In my Facebook post last December 7, I asked: “If naay extra kwarta, asa mo nga mangadto this Christmas or Holiday Season?“. In English, “If you have extra money, where do you go this Christmas or Holiday season?”.


Here are some of the responses who would love to go to other places.

Some responses lead to giving back by giving gifts to someone or community/organization. As a quote, “It’s better to give than to received”.
