ABOUT ME




Hi and welcome to my travel blog! My name is Arthur and I am The Filipino Traveler. This blog is mainly about reviews of my business and first class flights. Normally these flights would cost me a fortune but thanks to the tips I get from Flyertalk, I have been flying in premium class inexpensively since 2013 👍 The rest of this blog includes lounge and hotel reviews as well as tips on the top attractions to see when visiting different cities/countries.

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.
  • Of course, I don´t litter. 
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 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 😉
