As the country's leading foreign bank marks its 25th anniversary of leadership in credit cards, Citi once again rewards cardholders with up to 60% when they book and pay with their Citi credit card at any of The Discovery Leisure Company's luxurious resorts and hotels in Boracay, Palawan, Tagaytay, Ortigas, and Makati.

Part of the exciting deals offered right now when you use your Citi credit card is a Php2,500 off on your first booking (for a minimum purchase of Php8,000) at Airbnb. Promo period: July 1 - December 31, 2015; Travel Period: July 1 - February 29, 2016.

It was my first time to try Airbnb when I went to Hong Kong last June 29 - July 1, 2015. If I had known about the promo, I would've delayed my trip to a latter date and save Php2,500 on my travel funds.

For my first day, I stayed at a private room in Pui O, Lantau Island for €51 (roughly Php2,600).


It's more or less a 5-minute uphill walk from the main street.





This was my room.

It's located at the top floor with an access to the roof garden and a view of the sea.



For my second day in Hong Kong, I stayed at Dorsett Tsuen Wan in Kin Tsuen Street, Hong Kong, New Territories.

For €57 (roughly Php3,000), I got this room all to myself.




I particularly liked this feature of the hotel room where I can take and use this smartphone out for free.

The idea of travel, whether you'll be staying at posh hotel or a humble home, is a luxury in itself. I personally make it a point to indulge myself on short vacations to recharge and relax every now and then.

"Filipinos love to travel--whether it's a quick weekend getaway to a nearby beach, an extended holiday in one of the finest islands in the country, or even just a day tour in an unfamiliar part of the city -- the trip won't be remarkable without having fun and pampering themselves in an unforgettable place that gives them a feeling of luxury," shares David Stoughton, Credit Payment Products Director for Citi last August 25 at Discovery Primea. "That's why we teamed up with The Discovery Leisure Company to provide our cardholders with unique vacation experiences in their posh hotels and resorts," he adds.

The Discovery Leisure Company is a Filipino hospitality group that owns and manages a collection of award-winning hotels and resorts in top vacation destinations around the country. Available until September 30, 2015 with stays valid until December 30, 2015, these offers are available to Citi cardholders so they can relax, pamper themselves and enjoy fabulous time with their loved ones:
Discovery Shores Boracay with a 50% discount on a 3-day, 2-night stay in a Junior Suite room plus a buffet breakfast for two and a roundtrip Caticlan airport transfers

On top of these, Citi cardholders also enjoy 55% discount on overnight stays at Discovery Primea, TDLCI's newest luxury property located at the heart of Makati Central Business District. Designed by world-renowned architect, Kenzo Tange, the 68-storey skyscraper features classic Mediterranean Chinoiserie-inspired aesthetics designed to be timeless but up-to-date with modern amenities.
Aside from getting to experience Discovery Primea's comfort, functionality and style, Citi cardholders will also receive a complimentary breakfast for 2 at Tapenade.
The deals get even better, as Citi cardholders kick off 2016 with discounted accommodation deals. They simply need to make a reservation in any Discovery Hotel or Resort from October 1 to December 30, 2015, valid for stays from January to June 2016.

"We are happy to collaborate with Citi in providing their cardholders with wonderful vacation experiences they can share with their loved one," says Odette Huang, group director for sales and marketing of The Discovery Leisure company.
