With borders now easing up, though, people are bouncing back and once again traveling. 

Filipino wanderlusts, no doubt, are looking for new adventures. They’re eager to book flights and go to places, perhaps even strategically looking at travel destinations that do not require a visa. Want in and need a list of these visa-free countries? Scroll through!
