Welcome to Postcard Pretty.

Hey! I’m Rachel Arandilla, travel writer behind Postcard Pretty. I’ve lived in 5 different cities around the world and traveled to 40 countries. I travel at least once a month and my current home base is in Cebu City, Philippines.

Nowadays where everyone is looking for Instagram-worthy shots, I’m still stuck enamored at postcard-pretty places.

Here you can find a rich resource of travel guides and stories for every traveler in mind. This is a travel blog aimed for Filipino travelers who seek to explore within the Philippines and around the world.

I have a weekly travel column at Sunstar Weekend every Sunday.
