If you're planning to go on a global trip, but are not sure where to head to, then you may list Singapore as one of your best bets.

Digital travel platform Agoda revealed Singapore as the top trending destination among Filipino tourists, now that international travels are starting to relax in restrictions. 

Agoda Chief Executive Officer Omri Morgenshtern said that people have been looking forward to traveling for the past two years, which is why "travelers are making the most of it and are keen to visit both domestic and international destinations in Asia."

"Reliving memories as well as going back to places travelers once enjoyed seems to be the theme at this time," he said.

"At Agoda, we strive to enable even more people to travel by providing best-in-class travel options both on the website and app, with great deals on accommodation, and flights along with great things to do as travel continues to get back to normal," he added.

Following Singapore in the top five popular countries among Filipinos are Thailand, the United States, Malaysia, and France.

In terms of global travel, Bangkok is at the top spot among 15 destinations mentioned, followed by Jeju Island, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, and Seoul.

If you would rather travel locally though, then you'd be pleased to know that Manila is hovering at the ninth spot on the list. It's also the second Asia Pacific destination of choice among American travelers. Some places that you could explore in the capital of the Philippines are the National Museum, Fort Santiago, Rizal Park, and the Binondo Church.
