If you’re looking for an even cheaper fare and a destination slightly closer to home, flights to the Philippines have dipped to under $220 as part of a post-Valentine’s Day sale.

Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest low-cost carrier, is pushing Australians to visit the Philippines’ untouched islands from just $214 one-way from Sydney and Melbourne when booked before February 20, 2020. But you have to travel between March 1 and July 31, 2020.

The Philippines has been a popular spot for global tourism in the past few years. While Japan has been the world’s fastest-growing major travel destination, last year South Korea tourism increased by 14.4 per cent, Vietnam jumped 16.2 per cent and visitors to the Philippines went up by 15.1 per cent – indicating even bigger growth in 2020.
