Get ready to fuel your passion for travel and adventure as Cebu Pacific launches Juan For Fun 2019. Now on its eighth year, Juan For Fun is the most exciting and rewarding backpacking trip that enables today’s generation of passionate travelers to pursue their interests through traveling.
This year’s Juan For Fun takes on an inspiring route to bring personalized travel experiences to young Filipinos with #MyHashtagTrip. From foodies going on gastronomic adventures, thrill-seekers searching for the next adrenaline-pumping activity, to eco-warriors participating in environmental projects, many young travelers are driven by their hobbies and advocacies when exploring destinations. In this all-new Juan for Fun 2019, participants will journey around the Philippines - visiting new places, trying unique activities, and unlocking memorable travel milestones to enrich their personal passions and stories.
“Through Juan for Fun, Cebu Pacific has enabled students to go out of their comfort zones and bring them to local communities where they can gain meaningful first travel experiences. Last year, Juan For Fun participants took home valuable insights on being a responsible traveler. This time, we’re encouraging them to bring out their bucket lists and make life-changing adventures happen,” said Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Marketing and Distribution.
During the launch of Juan For Fun 2019 at the Glorietta Activity Center, Cebu Pacific gave the public a sneak peek at the trips and thrills that await this year’s winners. Guests and mallgoers were treated to interactive and Instagram-worthy booths such as those that featured must-see local destinations. The launch event also introduced the travel coaches for Juan For Fun 2019: Becoming Filipino’s Kyle ‘Kulas’ Jennermann, travel writer Jude Bacalso, TV host and social media personality Joyce Pring, and celebrity and vlogger Mikael Daez. Juan For Fun 2019 winners will participate in an exclusive one-day travel workshop, learn all about immersive travel experiences, and receive mentorship from the coaches.
To join Juan For Fun 2019, nominate any passionate individual aged 18 to 24 years old and residing in the Philippines who you think deserves to go on a free trip to make unforgettable moments happen. You can nominate your classmate, blockmate, BFF or relatives. Self-nominations are also allowed. All you need to do is submit the photo of your nominee along with his/her inspiring travel story and share what could be the hashtag for their amazing trip via www.juanforfun.ph.
