Create Your Own Adventure w/ Juan For Fun 2015 Backpacker Challenge

Definitely more exciting and unpredictable” – that’s how I would describe this year’s Cebu Pacific‘s Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge 2015.

Their travel adventure started yesterday with the team flying to Bangkok, Thailand as their first international destination which was revealed yesterday in the media press conference and send-off from Sofitel Manila. From June 23 to July 1, 2015, the five teams will explore several destinations in thePhilippines for eight straight days — all for free.

In contrast to previous years’ Juan For Fun, this year’s edition revealed a surprising twist where the succeeding local destinations were not provided by the Cebu Pacific organizers. The Juan For Fun teams were given a free hand to choose their local destinations “anywhere in the Philippines” within the Cebu Pacific network.

Fianlly, they should then make their way to the Juan for Fun 2015‘s final destination, Davao on July 1, for the challenge’s culmination.
