Hi, my name is Arthur and welcome to my travel blog! When I started this blog in 2013, I had just started learning the tricks on how to fly in premium class inexpensively. In about the same period, my part time work in a travel agency gave me the opportunity to travel frequently and explore the world. A few years passed and the combination of these two things eventually made me The Filipino Traveler.

With frequent traveling comes a lot of responsibility and I encourage everyone to practice responsible tourism. Here are some tips which I personally do when traveling:
  • First, I always try to pack light, taking with me just the essentials.
  • Almost 95% of the time, I take public buses and trains to get around the city, and when it is possible, I explore places on foot.
  • When staying at hotels, I never use bathrobes. Instead, I only use one big towel for the whole duration of my stay and most of the time, I decline housekeeping service.
Traveling is fun. It lets us experience things which we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Traveling is also knowledge. It allows us to learn more about our history and appreciate among other things the marvelous creations made long before we were born. So let us travel often, and if we can reach our destination flying in business class inexpensively while being a responsible tourist at the same time, that´s even better 😉

As of February 2020, I have visited a total of 76 countries, flown 218 times in business class and 51 times in first class ✈✈
