The entries for Cebu Pacific’s Wandering Juan photo contest have been trimmed down to the final 15, and it’s up to you to help determine which three best depict the Filipino travel spirit.
Hundreds of photos were submitted to the competition, which provided travelers an online venue for showcasing their adventures through photos featuring a pair of tsinelas—the trusted companion of most Pinoy travelers.

For Arnold Jumpay, the experience provided an interesting travel epiphany. “Taking a photo of my own tsinelas is like taking my self-portrait,” he shared, revealing how the tsinelas mirrors his traveler’s spirit.
Said Miko Martelino: “Getting to shoot a perfect sunset along the white beach [of Boracay] was the most memorable thing about our visit. I am thankful that I was able to capture that breathtaking moment and now share it with everyone.”
