Let's go to GUAM! : Heinz-United Airlines Blogging Contest

"Hada Adai, fellow bloggers!" -- This is the way people say HELLO in Guam.

If I were you, I'd read up on Guam and learn a phrase or two as you and a friend might just be on your way to the beautiful island of Guam for an all-expense paid trip brought to you by Heinz Tomato Ketchup!

Before I share the great news with you on how to join this exciting contest, let me share some Guam 101 first.

Guam is actually part of the US Territory thus a VISA is required prior to entry. Unlike California or New York, Guam is just a 3-hour flight away from Manila! Even closer than Singapore or Korea that takes us 4 hours to get there. The weather is fairly similar to the Philippines so no need to lug around your boots and coat for this trip.

As for the food, Filipinos won't have a hard time adjusting as the food in Guam is really similar to ours. This is brought by the early Filipino immigrants who transferred to Guam as early as the Spanish colonization. Thus, don't be surprise to see something that may look like a Pancit Sotanghon or an Adobo or perhaps our delicious Lechon during a feast in Guam.

Being part of the US Territory expect also to see the usual US retail and food shops like K-Mart, Duty Free stores, Cold Stone and Taco Bell to name a few.

Writing this, I'm personally excited to see Guam and I'm making sure to be able to tick this off my travel wish list hopefully soon.

  3. Loooooove to join - yun lang, its a LIKE contest.. Sayang!! hehehe...

    But in fairness, Guam is a wonderful place to vacation because of the very relaxed and chill mood! The pace is really slow - so different from what we're experiencing!!!

    The beach is wonderful - I say the beach because guam is surrounded by water so its a rounded stretch of beach!!
