This year, KC Concepcion makes Philippines the highlight of her travel goals.
In a recent interview with the Kapamilya actress, she mentioned that instead of going abroad, she will focus on the country's most scenic spots.
“While everyone is traveling to Europe, while everyone is traveling to South America,
“Mark Nicdao [photographer] and I, and my friends, made a pact na ang pinaka-traveling goals namin this year are here in the Philippines.
“Kasi, ang dami-raming places dito na ready na for travelers,” she related to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other reporters.
KC said she realized this while doing a photo shoot for a couple of local travel magazines.
She recalled, “Nagsho-shoot kasi kami ng travel magazine cover in Jan-Feb, 'tapos meron ulit this month for another travel magazine.
“Mark Nicdao and I have traveled around, and siya rin ang photographer ko for that.
“Parang sabi namin, 'Ang ganda pala ng Pilipinas talaga, di ba?'
“And a lot of our friends started traveling around so sabi namin, 'Alam mo, habang lumalabas silang lahat, dito tayo. Mag-explore tayo sa sarili nating bansa.'
“Kasi, nagawa na namin to talk about Paris, Europe, States, New York. I mean, they're beautiful.
“But, at the end of the day, Pinoy ka. Kapag tinanong ng tao kung ano ang meron sa inyo, hindi naman puwedeng beach lang.
“But ang gaganda rin naman talaga ng beaches dito!”
When asked about the top places she would recommend to tourists, she answered, “I wanna experience adventure like the sea of clouds in Mt. Pulag.”
“Osmeña Peak in Cebu, sobrang ang gaganda na hindi mo mai-imagine na nasa Pilipinas lang pala siya.”
"I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy & to do good while they live. That each of them may eat & drink & find satisfaction in their toil - this is the gift of God." ???????

Bukidnon, where one of her previous movies Forever and a Day (2011) was filmed.
“Of course, Palawan. Forever favorite ko ang Palawan kasi I have a home away from home.”
“Siguro food-tripping din sa Manila kasi kahit papaano, marami na ring nagbo-boom sa food industry, mga hole in the wall.”
In the end, KC stressed, “There's so much growth, there's so much to explore.”
