Now that you have secured your concert tickets, another thing that you should plan before D-day comes is your journey to the venue.
One concert venue that needs extra planning for some people is the Philippine Arena. It is located at Ciudad de Victoria in Santa Maria, Bulacan, and is the world’s biggest indoor arena that can accommodate up to over 50,000 guests.
Although it is an ideal venue to see your favorite artists with your friends, it’s not exactly commuter-friendly. If you are from far cities or provinces, it is wise to add Airbnb accommodation to your budget. Not only will it save you time from waiting to get to the parking exit, but it will also save you the energy (not to mention, the headache) from the traffic. Booking a stay at a nearby place for a day can let you easily rest up after a long (but fun) day.
After singing your hearts out and dancing the night away, charge up in these homestays near the Philippine Arena.
