The expo will be set up at the hotel’s 5,700 square meter Crystal Corridor Exhibition Hall. The venue will fit roughly 259 booths from travel agencies, hotel partners, airlines, and tour operators.

Touted as the “Jewel of the Entertainment City,” Okada Manila affords its guests and patrons a a five-star hotel experience. Here, one can stay, relax, shop, play, and dine under one roof.

The hotel also offers free parking, shuttle rides to and from designated pick-up points.

Have bag, will travel

The much-awaited 6th World Travel Expo offers exciting promos and deals for everyone. This year, domestic and Asian destinations -- Japan, Singapore, Chia, South Korea, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines -- take the spotlight. Watch out for one-time offers.

But before you pack your bags, add these things to your travel checklist:

  • Passport/Visa. Make sure your passport and any necessary travel visas are up to date. Some countries require a passport to be valid for at least six months after your scheduled return.
  • Get vaccinated. It’s best to get the necessary vaccinations out of the way as soon as possible because it can take a few weeks to build full immunity.
  • Vaccination cards. Always bring your vaccination card showing proof of your COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Cash. As the saying goes, “cash is king.” Bring a mix of cash and local currency before hand. 
  • Credit cards. Notify your bank and credit card companies about your travel dates so they don’t deny your purchases. It’s always a good idea to bring multiple cards in case one stops working. 
  • E-Wallets. Airlines, hotels and transportation honor e-wallets like GCash and Maya. 
  • Travel plans. Book the most direct and simple travel that your budget will allow.
  • Pocket WiFi. Now, you can avail of pocket WiFi before leaving the country. This will enable you to stay connected at fraction of the cost than availing it overseas.
  • Hotels. Book accommodations close to the sites you want to explore, or have easy access to public transport like buses, and trains.
  • Transportation. In certain countries, ride hailing apps are available. Having them updated and linked to your credit card or e-wallets will come handy.
