Welcome to Guiltless Getaways, a home for people who want to explore the world. If you've ever felt like you want to live your life to the fullest, then this site is for you. I'm Melody Co, the author and publisher of the site. This is where my love for travel, adventure, culture, language, music, food, arts, history and having fun come together.

I am inviting you to see the world and its people in a different light. My goal is to share my experience and what I saw. I consider myself as a willing road tester (so that I may get lost first before you and gladly show you the way), an eager foodie (I love convincing you to try different cuisines - and I'm so glad I was introduced to organic food through this blog), a time traveler (I love telling you to revisit the places that my elders talk about and encouraging you to remember the lost places you used to enjoy as a child) and a repeat traveler (I love filling you with experiences of places that I love over and over because the world changes with time). I want to leave a legacy and a trail that you can continue in your own journey - to live this life without regrets.

Love,
Meloy =)

Exemption from Taiwan Visa Requirement for Philippine Passport Holders via Taiwan Online Entry Permit

Going to Taiwan soon? Have you already purchased two-way tickets from the insanely low fares of Cebu Pacific or Philippine Airlines? People from the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Indian and Vietnam will find it easy to go to Taiwan today because you only have to apply for an Online Entry Permit if you meet all of the following requirements:

1. You must have a valid official passport (6 months before expiration) when you enter Taiwan.
2. You must have a return ticket.
3. You should have never been employed as a blue-collar worker in Taiwan.
4. You should have either a Permanent Taiwan resident card or a valid entry visa to any one of these countries: US, Canada, UK, Japan, Australia, New Zealand or Schengen.

The online permit is valid for 30 days with unlimited entries and exits. It is advisable that you process your visa requirements or online entry permit one month before your departure. The date of your online application will determine your online authorization expiry date, e.g. I applied on October 22, 2010, the authorization to enter expires November 21, 2010. If you do not qualify or if your application for an online entry permit was denied, a Taiwan visa will cost you around P2500 today.

Here's the direct link for the Taiwan Online Entry Permit:

Update 6/2013: This privilege has been revoked at the moment because of the tensions between Taiwan and the Philippines.
