I was encouraging my niece to consider a Van Transport business in a tourist destination for a potential business, since she is trying to add up to her income as an employee. The tourism industry is really growing and so a business like this is very viable. What is important is to be in the right place to operate it with lots of tourist, have a good driver who is careful and also know how to fix it when it breaks, at least the minor issues.
The vehicle doesn’t have to be brand new at the start, but it should not also be too old that it will require so much maintenance cost and reliability on the road for long distance travel can be compromised. Maximum of a 6 years model is recommended if budget is also a consideration, just have to be well checked before using it for business. It’s a must to replace parts sooner than later, preferably with new tires, shocks, and bushings. Of course, the engine has to be good, with no oil leaks, Aircon must be strong, the interior must be clean and presentable.
Let’s promote that really, it’s More Fun in the Philippines!
We (my family and friends) have been using Cebu Pacific for several years now. It was always Philippine Airlines then. Â We switched to Cebu Pacific because of the lower pricing, its fine even if they don’t serve snacks, the price difference was very significant specially that we travel in groups. Â
My friend Julie alone had 24 flights with Cebu Pacific this year, i only had about 20 ( 1 of which was via Pal Express Air from Caticlan to Manila). Most of those flights were bound to Boracay. We have probably taken more than 100 flights (counting those of my family this year).
Our most recent flights were already FREE courtesy of Cebu Pacific Air, we enjoyed flights to Boracay, Manila and Cebu this last quarter. During the early part of this Â year, the flights were always late, there was one time when they already had to serve us lunch because the plane was later for more then four (4) hours alread, but as time passed, by the end of the year as i write, our flights has been ON TIME.

It was a very exciting day at Cebu City last December 10, 2008 when Crown Regency Hotel and Towers launched the World’s First Edge Coaster and the Philippines’ First Sky Walk Extreme Sky Adventure.
I count it a privilege to witness this historical event, special to the Cebuanos and a great pride of the Filipinos. It’s not everyday that one can be in the midst of this kind of action… where you hear voices shouting in excitement while seated at the Edge Coaster Car tilted 55 degrees and going around the hotels edge at the 38th Floor (you will feel a bit scared at the thought of falling, EXCEPT that YOU WONT, coz you are SAFELY AND TIGHTLY FASTENED), and eyes looking forward to another moment of fun and adventure. I felt hungry after the ride haha…as if all the food i ate fell down the ground. One can feel high energies around the crowd as everyone taste, touch, see and feel what life has to offer when you visit Crown Regency Hotel’s Sky Experience Adventure Park.
I know that there are a lot more Cebu as to offer, but what I am sure for now, are 2 Things you MUST DO in CEBU!
1. Ride at the Edge Coaster- This is the World’s First! Enjoy it day time and night time, savor the sights 360″ around the 38th Floor of the TALLEST HOTEL TOWER in the PHILIPPINES- Crown Regency Hotel at Fuente Osmena Avenue! It is safe and really fun…I rode it twice already, my friend Janet rode 3 x, even my 65 year old Mom immensely enjoyed the night lights overlooking the entire Cebu as we rode the Edge Coaster together.
2. Take a walk at the Sky Walk Extreme - I was the 8th person on the very 1st BATCH, Ceremonial Walk! You get to wear a SkyWalk suit, get attached to a harness (similar to what are used during James Bond stunts filmings) and walk around the edge of the 37th floor, see through the glass flooring and look down the ground, or stand one feet floating on air if you wish and take home a souvenir CD with you in full Sky walking Gear, and maybe a shot of you on the Edge Coaster looking scared hehe…
Its open from 8 am to about 2am of the next day, DAILY. Access to the Sky Walk Adventure goes with a ride and snack!
