Traveling the world can be an exhilarating experience but because it entails a lot of money, many of us couldn’t travel farther than the farthest edges of our own province or country.

Which of these destinations (whether the Filipino version or international version) have you already visited or are still planning to visit? I guess it would be so much better to visit the original, international version, of course, but I am quite sure it wouldn’t hurt to just check out these local look-alikes so you can essentially ‘travel the world’ even without getting your passport stamped!
