Me with the Pyramids of Giza, Cairo in April 2018
Hi there, my name is Arthur and I am The Filipino Traveler 😉
Starting this blog was never really planned but rather it happened by chance. Although I had already visited 26 countries and flown 4 times in business class by October 2012, it was not until I started learning from Flyertalk that I could fly in premium class for the price of economy class that I thought of writing a blog. Traveling to different countries every year as part of my work at Singelresor was awesome but combining it to being able to fly in business and first class to get to the destination was even cooler 😊 So in December of the same year, with 7 new countries to visit in the coming months and a great enthusiasm to explore a hobby I had just started to learn (the miles and points world), I decided it was time to document my travel and start this blog.
Through my flight and hotel reviews (and the newly added video reviews), I hope to help discerning travelers in choosing the better airlines and hotels. From the Top Attractions section, I hope to inspire people to travel (more) and see for themselves how beautiful this world is. As my own saying goes, "Traveling is like reading your history and geography books .... only a thousand times better". Last but not the least, I am writing this blog for myself ... so I could have that Perfect Travel Diary to read and enjoy when I get old 😊
As of August 2018, I have visited a total of 70 countries, flown 168 times in business class and 48 times in first class ✈✈
