    Calaguas Travel Guide + Itinerary and Budget

    When we hear Calaguas, what instantly comes to our mind is a long stretch of pristine beach with only few cottages that serve as temporary home for the city dwellers seeking to be away from everything. That’s how we see it, at least for us, considering that we were one of the first people who beheld its untouched beauty even before it rose to fame big time. As a matter of fact, on our first visit we had the whole beach all to ourselves as if we rented it for a couple of days, that was 2014. Over the years, many things has changed. It’s not just about few cottages…

    Taiwan 5D4N Itinerary & Budget + Travel Guide

    Taiwan has been on our bucket-list ever since it opened it’s doors to Philippine passport holders. Meaning, Filipinos could enjoy visa-free entry to Taiwan for up to 14 days, but only for a trial period which was until July 2018 only. We missed the trial period but it seemed Taiwan really wanted to see us so visa-free privilege was extended until July 2019! Taiwan Trip Summary Our trip consisted of Taipei City, Taichung, Yangmingshan, and Northeast tour. We stayed for 5 days and 4 nights at King Plaza Hotel, a budget hotel famous for Filipino tourists. We spent around 18,000 PHP per person including airfare, travel tax, hotel accommodation, transportation, food, tours,…

    Explore Baguio on a Motorbike with 175 Php Budget

    Dubbed as the Summer Capital of the Philippines due to its cool mountain weather, Baguio surely has a lot of amazing things to offer. Pine trees were found in every corner of the city lending it the nickname “City of Pines”. There’s no shortage of parks and restaurants where people could spend quality time with their family and barkada. Bunch after bunch of fresh strawberries are found everywhere in the market. True enough, it’s too beautiful that staying here for a day wouldn’t be enough. We had a family vacation in Baguio way back 2004. And now after 15 years, I’m finally back! But this time not for a vacation.…

    Antique | Three-day Itinerary & Expenses

    “Where Mountains Meet the Sea” Just looking at the province’s tagline, you will already have a good preview of the place. It is the province where you will pass by the road and when you look at one side, it’s all mountains, and on the other side, it’s the vast sea! One skimpy road and some rice fields in between, that’s how close they are with each other. As a result, it was automatically listed in everyone’s summer bucket-list. But I dare say, it is worth visiting even during non-summer months! We went here during monsoon season (July), and that did not stop us from enjoying the place. You can…

    Hermana Menor Island DIY Itinerary and Travel Guide

    Hermana Menor Island has been in the social media spotlight recently, proof that the island’s charm really captured every island goer’s hearts. Having a wide expanse of sandbar made it unique among the islands of Zambales. I was wrong into thinking that the province is just about coves, wonderful sunsets, beaches, and surfing. Little did I know that such beauty that usually exists in farther places from Manila (e.g. Leyte, Cebu, Antique) also exists in Zambales! Another thing that made it stand out is that the sandbar is surrounded by coral reefs. Just few steps to the water and poof!—you’ll instantly witness a colorful marine life! You don’t need to…
