Are you celebrating your 18th birthday? Celebrating your quarter-life birthday? Your mid-life birthday? Do you want to celebrate your birthday in a special way? Or would you like to surprise someone on their birthday?

Experience Philippines can organize an exciting surprise adventure for you. Our team will take care of your surprise destination and your transport. We will arrange everything about the trip so you don’t have to worry about a thing.


Love yourself. Give yourself a birthday travel gift.

Give a “Just because” gift.
Sometimes we don’t need a reason to give ourselves or our loved one a special birthday gift. We just do it because we of love.


Try an activity that you have been wanting to try.

Try something crazy like tandem paragliding.
Go and try something wild that you always wanted to do in your life. Try a cooking class. Eat local cuisines. Go food tripping. Trying out an experience together will definitely help get to know yourself more. Personal experiences will always be memorable.


Spend a day of gratitude.

Gratitude, or appreciation for the good things that happen in life, is an essential part of building happiness. When you’re going through a tough time it can be hard to remember to be grateful for the good stuff, but there are a stack of benefits that can be gained from working gratitude into your everyday life.


Your Own Personal Random Road Trip

In this age of “DIY” where travel is increasingly commoditized, repetitive, and impersonal, the Book A Surprise opens up an opportunity for people who want to travel alone or with a small group of friends, where everything is still a surprise yet pre-arranged and tailored to your preference.

“I was really surprised. I didn’t know a thing about Romblon. It wasn’t on my map! All I knew about Romblon was its marble. I didn’t even know it was just beside Boracay!” (AC Pati, Book A Surprise Birthday Celebrant).

“It was really my first time alone. Maganda yung place and mabait yung mga tao” (The place was beautiful, and the people were really nice!”). Aside from Carabao Island in Romblon, a sidetrip to Boracay was also included in AC’s surprise. But that’s not the end of the story. Remember that AC booked this surprise because it was his birthday? We pre-arranged a cake to be sent to him! Because if there is anything to add an icing on the cake (pun intended) of a surprise birthday trip, that would be an actual cake by the ocean!

In the end, AC advises anyone who might be interested to Book A Surprise “To not be afraid. To go outside your comfort zone. Think outside the box and don’t be afraid to try new things. It’s nice to try something different.”

Let life surprise you. But when it comes to travel, let US do that for you!

What is Book A Surprise?

BOOK A SURPRISE takes the same travel concept of our Random Road Trips (where the destination is a secret and the activities a surprise) BUT this time:

You can travel on your own (or with someone)
You can choose the date of your travel.
You RECEIVE a MYSTERY BOX that contains your long-awaited destination, your personalized itinerary, and some fantastic gifts from us and our partners. (Check out our Instagram Stories for some live action – https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17867933842203083/
We wish to rekindle the joy of traveling by keeping the destination unknown until you are at the airport, bus or boat terminal, or meet up point by removing all preconceived (mis)conceptions of travel. You get to dive right into the spontaneity by embracing the journey, the experiences more than the destination.

By allowing travelers to step out of their comfort zone of conventional trip planning or traditional set tours, we opened up a new dimension to travel. Travelers now learn…

1. To let go of control.
2. To have a better understanding what they can and can not do.
3. To make new friends from once strangers.
4. To appreciate the unexplored and non-touristy.
5. To enjoy unique transports like tricycles, habal-habal, jeepneys, lampitaws, RORO, etc.
