The Queen City Of South – Cebu City.

I had may Cebu City trip few months ago. Doing a DIY (do-it-yourself) tour around Cebu feels like going around in any city in Manila. Cebuanos are friendly and we’re sure you’ll figure out how to jump from one spot to another with their help. Cebu has an incredibly rich history and culture which are…

Camp Netanya – Santorini of the South

Travelling can make our lives colorful. It can enrich our views and appreciation about a place, culture, tradition, and people. But we don’t always have to travel far to find new and exciting places. Sometimes the most wonderful adventures could just be found a few hours from home. I only learned of Camp Netanya from…

Cintai Corito’s – Bali in the Philippines.

A Bali inspired place where you can relax and have a wonderful time to spend together friends or just even by yourself. All of the buildings were beautifully crafted with colorful design. The color motifs were not your usual white and gray and black. But the colors were not jarring. In fact the overall feel of…

Mt. Binacayan – 424 meters above sea level.

  Climbing this mountain requires a short interval of time that most often for season climbers, it can be done for three summits in a day including the Mount Pamitinan and Mount Hapunang Banoi. Scaling Mount Binacayan is more technical due to its sharp rocky terrain. It is not forested and so climbers have to…

Mt. Hapunang Banoi – 517 Meters Above Sea Level.

  Mt.Hapunang Banoi, located in Rodriguez, Rizal. I’m just an ordinary hiker and I’ll just go if I have a spare time or if someone invites me in.

Amazing Romblon – The Marble Capital Of The Philippines.

Romblon is one of my favorite travel destination. There’s a laid-back vibe where you can enjoy your time alone. People here are friendly and the accommodations are affordable. Sadly, Romblon is the often-overlooked province only known to most Filipinos as the source of Philippine marble. Romblon, Philippines has three major islands: 1.) Romblon Island, Romblon…

Alibijaban Island – Summer in January.

Alibijaban Island is one of those few places in the Philippines that are unknown to many. Located in the southern most part of Quezon province, land travel would be 8-10 hours, and then a 30 min boat ride. Aside from the white sand, mangrove forests and crystal clear waters that made this place famous, one…

Calayan, Babuyan Group of Islands – paradise less traveled.

BILIRAN – The undiscovered paradise.

When I think of the Visayas region, my mind leads me to the famous tourist places like Cebu, Bohol, Iloilo, and Boracay. Once a month, I make sure that I travel to different places because I need some quiet time to “recharge my batteries.” My first plan was actually go to Antique and try the Kawa-Kawa….
