The laidback city beat out popular local destinations like Boracay and Palawan.

Still undecided about where to go this holiday season? Maybe you can consider Airbnb’s insights into trending domestic destinations among Filipinos.

Surpassing the allure of renowned havens like Boracay and Palawan, Sorsogon City in Bicol leads this year’s destination list, especially for travelers who want a unique and off-the-beaten-path experience. Nestled near the Pacific Ocean, this enchanting locale boasts pristine beaches, vibrant local markets, and a tapestry of traditions for you to immerse yourself in.

‘Tis the Season to Go to Sorsogon!

In the recently released data by the San Francisco-based online marketplace for people wanting to rent out properties for accommodation, typically for short stays, a seismic shift in the travel preferences of Filipino explorers has been unveiled. Data indicates an unprecedented surge in domestic tourism, with pristine beaches becoming the focal point of Filipino wanderlust.

Unveiling the crown jewel of 2023’s travel scene, Sorsogon City stands as the ultimate haven for seekers of serenity and adventure in unspoiled paradises. A closer look at the data reveals the ascent of San Felipe in Zambales and the metropolitan allure of Las Piñas in Metro Manila, both emerging as rising stars with their distinct and captivating offerings. While these newfound favorites steal the spotlight, the timeless appeal of Puerto Princesa in Palawan and the sun-soaked enchantment of Boracay remain unshaken, reaffirming the everlasting charm of these iconic destinations.

Embarking on a journey beyond our shores, Japan takes center stage as the quintessential international playground for Filipino wanderers. The allure of Taito City, Shinjuku, and Osaka beckons, each promising a unique tapestry of culture, modernity, and adventure. Nestled between these Japanese gems, Hong Kong emerges as the enchanting runner-up, adding an extra layer of vibrancy to the travel palette.

Delving into the world of Airbnb preferences, it’s evident that Filipino travelers are on the quest for tropical bliss, making Tropical Stays the undisputed champion in bookings this season. Following closely is the fascination with Iconic Cities, weaving a narrative of urban exploration and cultural immersion. For those craving the great outdoors, the allure of Amazing Pools, National Parks, and Golfing Categories takes center stage as outdoor enthusiasts carve their path to adventure.

Where are you headed this holiday season? If you want a perfect blend of natural wonders and coastal delights, you might as well add Sorsogon to your options. Located in Luzon’s southernmost region, this destination offers the best of both worlds—the breathtaking views of Mt. Bulusan and Mt. Pulog, coupled with the white sand beaches of Bacon, just a few minutes’ ride away.

Secure your tour and accommodations in advance for a seamless and delightful stay. Feel free to check out Airbnb’s holiday packages and accommodation options here. Embrace the beauty of Sorsogon and make this holiday season memorable. Enjoy!
