I’M A longtime card-carrying member of the been-there-done-that, “#quitsenyor” set. I see the long break as a respite from what always seems like an endless holiday season. I also take the time to cozy up to yearend backlog and to finish plans for the New Year. Of the plans are those for travel. Rhonda Byrne couldn’t have been more in play when we were checking services on the app Klook as we, shortly, got their invite to shake up what would otherwise have been a home-bound weekend.
The well-appointed, twenty-two-meter catamaran, Jokai I, hosted a bevy online influencers and select media members from Cebu and Manila for Klook’s first ever Sunset Yacht Party along the Mactan Channel. Kicking off Sinulog 2018, Asia’s largest online and mobile in-destination services booking platform saw it as an opportunity to officially introduce the travel app to the Queen City of the South following its successful #GetKlookd launch last year.
Klook is dedicated to giving travelers simple, fast and convenient access to popular attractions, experiences, and services so they can discover the sounds, colors, and even tastes of places around the world. Travelers can easily customize their itineraries on klook.com or on Klook’s award-winning mobile app to satisfy their wanderlust and last-minute plans. Each day, they help countless travelers feel inspired with over 25,000 activities in more than 120 destinations at their fingertips.
The yacht was dressed to fit the weekend festivities. Beanbags, beach balls, and floaties made each corner Instagram-worthy. The all-too adept guest list lost no time and was literally crawling across both upper and lower decks, clicking for content to their content. Endless drinks were passed around to lubricate the interactions while a buffet ensured everyone’s sea legs. The partying only got even better as the sun set with live music provided by DJ Manolo Aballe.
To cap off the night, Klook launched an epic sale with KLOOK-IT 2018. First-time app users will enjoy an extra 8% off ANY Klook activity when they use the promo code KLOOKIT2018 upon checkout until February 28, 2018. Regular users can also enjoy this promotion by answering the poll on:
