Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.

Hidden Gem in Sorsogon - Bulusan Lake


Bicol is one of the best place to travel by land. The perfectly-shaped cone Mayon Volcano is found here and also one active small volcano - Mount Bulusan. Don't be wary and back off to travel and see the beauty of Bicol. The place also has a beautiful beach and lakes. One of these is Bulusan Lake, found in Sorsogon - southern part of Bicol.

Going to Sorsogon Bicol by land is about 12 to 13 hours drive. You may opt to travel by plane via Manila to Legazpi or Naga. From Legazpi or Naga Airport, you have to ride a van or bus and travel to Sorsogon for about 4 to 5 hours drive.

The local government of Sorsogon rehabilitated this place and now this is one the tourist spot here in Sorsogon. For a minimal entrance fee of 20 or 30php (I totally forgot, pardon me!) you'll get to walk around the lake and see the beauty of Mount Bulusan Lake.
