Living miles away from your home country might sound scary, but you can’t deny that it’s also thrilling. If you’ve always dreamed of living overseas but can’t make it come true just *yet*, it’s okay! In the meantime, you can live vicariously through young Filipina vloggers based abroad. Besides watching new sights, you can learn through their firsthand ~adulting~ experiences in an unfamiliar place.

Check out the list of Filipina YouTubers you might want to follow if you want to live abroad:

1. Kristel Fulgar

We’re sure Kristel’s subscribers would agree when we say she’s the ~main character~ in her Korean drama-like life. ICYDK, the 27-year-old actress moved to Seoul, South Korea, last August to pursue her career and studies. She films feel-good vlogs about her daily life in the city and sometimes her kilig-filled dates with Yohan Kim, aka Big Boss.

2. Aika Agustin

The 22-year-old vlogger mostly makes lifestyle videos in Tokyo, Japan, but she also covers other cities. It's not hard to get hooked on Aika's content, as she makes aesthetically pleasing videos about the country. Of course, she also knows well that life isn't a bed of roses, so she once opened up in a vlog about her scariest experience living alone in Japan.

4. Melizza Jimenez

You might've heard of Melizza for her role in season one of He's Into Her, but ICYDK, the actress is also a vlogger. It's no secret that she paused her acting career to pursue her studies in Brisbane, Australia. On her channel, you can catch a glimpse of her navigating adulthood and her uni life alone, including her travels in the U.S. and Europe.

5. Ella Gatchalian

Ella, more popularly known as Jeorella, has been living independently in the U.S. for quite some time, but there are always new things going on in her vlogs. For instance, she recently ventured into business and achieved the milestone of getting her own car. Her adulting journey will give you an idea of what *real* life is like in the States.
