MANILA, Philippines, 11 February 2019 – Many of his followers on social media are aware that Wil Dasovich is very close to his family. For many of his trips and travels, Wil is joined by his dad, Steve, and mom, Charry, to experience extraordinary adventures and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Wil recently embarked on a family road trip to Tagaytay, made possible by a partnership between Ford and TripAdvisor®. Wil traveled in a Ford Everest from Manila to Tagaytay, identified as an extraordinary adventure destination, and explored the city’s most-visited spots and tourist attractions.
An extraordinary trip for an extraordinary family
The first stop on their itinerary was a visit to People’s Park in the Sky, where they took a trip down memory lane and enjoyed a tour of the former Marcos-era mansion and a breathtaking view of Tagaytay, from one of the highest points in town.
Following a brief lunch, the family descended from Tagaytay to Talisay, Batangas, where they took a boat to the base of Taal Volcano. They journeyed up to the volcano’s peak on horseback, where they enjoyed yet another picturesque view, this time overlooking the majestic Taal Lake.
After enjoying the view, fresh air and great company, Wil and his folks capped off their day trip and returned to Tagaytay for dinner in one of the city’s most renowned dining spots, Josephine’s Restaurant. This eatery is known for its beef bulalo soup and fried tawilis, the perfect meal to share while enjoying the refreshing breezes of Tagaytay.
The perfect road trip companion
This family adventure would not have been possible without the trusty road trip companion that took Wil and his family safely from Manila to Tagaytay, Batangas and back. Performance, safety and comfort are the most important qualities Wil looks for in a vehicle when going on adventures with his family, and he found them in the Ford Everest. During the trip, he and his family drove the Everest and experienced this mid-size SUV as robustly capable and ideal for family fun.
“Discovering the Everest’s impressive features and ability to conquer diverse conditions made us feel like there was nothing holding us back from our thirst for adventure. Adding to that was the new TripAdvisor, which made it easy to search for places to go, things to do, and find recommendations on where to stay or eat from travel experts,” shares Wil. “We look forward to exploring more destinations in the future, knowing we have truly extraordinary partners in Ford and TripAdvisor.”
Ford, together with TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, partnered to surface a list of extraordinary adventure destinations across Asia Pacific to encourage explorers to discover the amazing locations around them.
Recognizing the growing appeal in adventure getaways, Ford and TripAdvisor uncovered the best “off-road”, “extreme destinations” with “tough roads” using TripAdvisor’s machine learning to identify popular adventure destinations.
TripAdvisor is the one place online that allows consumers to effortlessly discover, save and share great recommendations when planning a trip. Beyond enjoying more than 702 million reviews and opinions, travelers can now get useful and relevant advice from friends, family and the people and experts they trust to plan and book the perfect trip.
Features in the Ford Everest, like the Terrain Management System, SYNC and 800mm water wading give drivers the capability to handle tough terrain, enjoy hands-free connectivity and traverse unexpected conditions while maintaining maximum safety.
