Free VAT Campaign of

Yes to more discounts with the Free VAT Campaign of!

Do you love traveling but feel that your earnings are never enough to cover the cost? Do you always feel worried about the continuous price hikes on commodities? Are you one of those who complain about the high tax rate charged in the items and services you need?

It wouldn’t be surprising if you answered “yes” in any of these questions. Because among our neighboring countries, we, Filipinos, are the highest-paying taxpayers.

While well-performing ASEAN countries like Singapore and Malaysia are able to tone down Value Added Tax (VAT) charges at the minimum, the Philippines remains as the South East Asian country with the highest VAT of 12% in the ASEAN. Apart from this, the Philippines also ranks second in corporate income tax and personal income tax. Now that almost all purchases made are topped with tax, many Filipinos are struggling so hard to earn enough just to cover all their expenses.

With that,, the leading online travel agent (OTA) in the country, wants to ease such burden.

Just this July, launched its Free VAT Campaign wherein they shoulder the 12% VAT on all hotel bookings made by their customers.

When in Bataan

Bataan is one of the places up north that have beautiful tourist spots. It has been known for its history and natural beauty. Just a few hours away from the metro, bordered between Zambales and Pampanga, tourists will definitely enjoy what this place has to offer. There is no shortage on accommodation, too, as there are a lot of hotels in Bataan that you can choose from. You can compare them using online booking sites like Traveloka to get the best deals on rooms.

How to get there

Via Bus – Take the bus from Cubao, Quezon City. Fare would probably cost around 200 to 250.
Via Private Car – Take Northern Luzon Expressway (NLEX) then Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).
Here are a few places that you must visit when you are in Bataan:

Dambana ng Kagitingan / Mt. Samat

Dambana ng Kagitingan also known as Mount Samat National Shrine is located in the summit of Mount Samat, a historic mountain in Pilar, Bataan. The memorial shrine was built to honor all Filipino and American soldiers who fought during World War II. Thus making it the most renowned landmark of the province.

Before you can reach the cross itself, you’d have to take the zig-zagging path on the mountain slope. It was a bit tiring but as you are going up, you’d feel the air’s cool breeze and that for me soothes everything. Once you reach the base of the cross, you will notice Abueva’s “Nabiag Na Bato” which depicts historical events such as Jose Rizal’s execution.

We were all so thrilled to go up the view deck to see and feel what it’s like when you’re above a 92-meter tall cross. There are two options when going up the view deck, via stairs or elevator. The elevator’s capacity is for 8-10 people only, so imagine how little the space is. But we didn’t mind at all because it is definitely much more convenient than taking stairs.

The view from there was breathtaking! And if the wind is a bit strong you’d hear as if it is whistling, I just love the sound of it. And for someone who is acrophobic, my legs were really shaking as I was walking to get to the other side of the cross. But man, everything was really worth it.  You’d see the panoramic view of Bataan, Corregidor and Manila.

If you are planning to visit, below are the details you should take note of:

Location: Baranggay Diwa, Pilar, Bataan
Open Hours: 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Everyday
Entrance Fee: Php20.00
