And we’re off to Hokkaido! Well, not just yet. There are no affordable direct flights yet from Manila straight to the land of cheese, milk and all those good food. We took a somewhat longer option. Upon research, Vanilla Air was our best bet in getting to this land. So how was our experience with Vanilla Air?
The flight from Tokyo (Narita Airport) to Hokkaido (New Chitose Airport) was close to 2 hours. It was a short flight. If you’re coming from the international airport side, you could simply take a bus going to domestic terminal (terminal 3). But if you’re feeling energetic, you could also walk too but I’m unsure how long that’ll take. At the domestic airport, you could grab a meal or snack instead of buying in the aircraft. Though we did eat at the food court there, I just had to grab the snack below.
Can you see that custard oozing out from that bun? Ughhhh…so good! It might be a tad expensive compared to other buns but I find the filling to be just good. The pastry itself was quite good too.
Overall, it was a good experience at this airline. The service on the craft was quite good. Not totally sure if it created a new sky experience for me or how it fares for their international flights. But during that short flight, it’s good one that I’ll definitely fly with them on my next trip to Japan. 🙂
