I've traveled Air Asia numerous times for both domestic and international trips, and I've never had a problem with my book or the flight itself. Though they are known as a "Low Cost Carrier", you wouldn't feel it from the quality of service.
Like many people in our country bitten by the wanderlust bug, I'm always on the lookout for a great travel deals, and the Air Asia website is usually my first stop! It's awesome to see that an Airline with the vast reach of Air Asia isn't content with the lineup of destinations on their roster, and is always looking to expand further for their passengers in the Philippines.
True to form, just few days ago, Air Asia unveiled their newest route.. And it's a pretty awesome one!
Starting June 10, Air Asia is going to be flying out to Shanghai!!!
And guess what? One lucky reader is going to win a free ticket to Shanghai!!

Afterwards, we were treated to the musical stylings of sultry singer, Raquel Bartolome, best known for her gravity defying splits and costumes that would make Lady Gaga look like Mother Superior!
I'm kidding, my dear friend Raquel Bartolome is head of marketing for the Vikings Group, in which Niu is under. Niu served exceptional Chinese dishes, keeping everyone anxious to experience Shanghai first hand!
