“Bleisure”– it’s the blending and blurring of the line between business and leisure travel. Globally, there are signs of a growing movement, especially among young business travelers, to take advantage of business travel by incorporating personal time.
Next month CNN Business Traveller heads to the Philippines where host Richard Quest discovers how the skyscrapers of Manila and the beaches of more than 7,000 islands make this country the perfect place to explore this evolving trend.
Highlights of January’s Business Traveller include:
Old City Tour
Richard Quest joins Philippines Tourism Secretary Ramon R. Jimenez on a whirlwind tour of Intramuros, Manila’s oldest district and historic core, to get his take on bleisure, and the evolving business traveller and tourism markets.
Richard climbs on board one of Air Juan’s Cessna Grand Caravan Amphibians, for a 30- minute flight to Puerto Galera, one of the Philippines top diving destinations, avoiding what would normally be a six-hour trip by road and ferry.
Your Own Private Island
The CNN team travels to Ariara, a private island escape, with anything and everything at your fingertips, including private chef and diving instructor. CNN meets British businessman Charles McCulloch and his wife who built the ultimate getaway for today’s harried business traveler.
