Get shortlisted and be included in the Top 5 who will be sent off to compete in the challlenge proper. Point-and-shoot cams, video cams and essential peripherals will also be provided so you can document your adventure. Capture every fun activity you choose to take. Just like in the previous years, Special Fun Challenges are also set up in each destination for your team to accomplish in order to earn extra points. In the end, three teams will be awarded with round-trip tickets to any local (except Caticlan and Coron, Busuanga) or international destination (limited to short-haul destinations). The Juan for Fun Ultimate Backpackers will be entitled to 12 round trip tickets while the 2nd and 3rd placers will receive 9 and 6 tickets.
