Be The Juanderlust Winner And Travel in 80 Provinces of the Philippines For Free In 80 Days



Wow! I am blown away when I learned of Juanderlust, the biggest travel competition in the Philippines. Take note they have the most expensive prize takeaway to be given to the Chosen Juan winner which is worth PHP 2.5 million (or $55K) worth of prizes aside from an all-expenses paid 80-day trip around the Philippines, he or she will also get gadgets and a juicy compensation package after the journey. 

I have only been nearly half of the provinces actually so I was drooling when I learned this and that everything is totally free! The Juanderlust contest is a new global online search to find the Chosen Juan, who will be tasked to go on an exhilarating island hopping adventure of a lifetime and share it with the world. From the tips of Luzon to the ends of Mindanao, the Chosen Juan will have an unmatched experience of 80 of the best underrated wonders of the Philippines while getting educated on the country's colorful culture along the way. 

The brains behind these are TravelBook.ph, a hotel booking site in the Philippines and StopSleepGo, a vacation rental booking site based in the UK.  The aim of Juanderlust travel contest is to present the untapped potential of the Philippines to the global community through the country's culture, people, and undiscovered sites.

To those who cannot wait to join here are the details:

Each aspiring Juan must be:


Aged 18 years old and above

These top 10 will go on a sponsored overnight to a nearby destination and must write at least 500 - word blog post about the experience on or before December 20th.

Good luck everyone I know you are now preparing your entries!  I am also preparing for my trip to Zamboanga as part of my monthly mystery travel assignment.This is so far the 6th province I have visited with free roundtrip flight, hotel stipend and a small amount of payment.  But I am still envious though for the emerging Juanderlust winner!
