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.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

Luxe in the City: Limketkai Luxe Hotel

A few weeks ago, I, together with 7 other travel bloggers went to the City of Golden Friendship - Cagayan de Oro which happens to be the gateway to Northern Mindanao. We had a short stay in CDO for only 4 days and every day we have a tiring and sometimes laid-back itinerary. My favorite was the White Water River Rafting that we get to experience 14 rapids that took us 3 hours of paddling and streaming along the river of Cagayan de Oro. It was a tiring yet fun-filled day with my fellow bloggers. And what better way to relax after that 3-hr of rafting is staying in a 4-star hotel in the city proper of Cagayan de Oro - Limketkai Luxe Hotel. 
Limketkai Luxe Hotel is operating for 3 years now and has 218 sophisticated rooms in a 21-story hotel. The hotel also offers banquets and conference room that can cater from 100 to 800 pax. Situated in the city proper of CDO where shopping malls, major establishments are just walking distance or few minutes drive away from the hotel. This gives the …

FREE WiFi While On Board with Philippine Airlines

I would say that I am a cheap traveler or some call it budgetarian. I love traveling as much as I love saving money at the same time. I already started my journey on traveling all 81 provinces in the Philippines and at the same time traveling around Asia and soon in Australia next year. 
Philippine airlines are the flag carrier of the Philippines and have been operating more than 25 years and what better way to improve their service is to offer WiFi while onboard, while enjoying your trip to Melbourne, Tokyo Narita, Tokyo Haneda, Osaka, Nagoya, Honolulu*, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Hong Kong, Jeddah, Riyadh, Kuwait, Dammam, and Bangkok via Airbus A330 and the B777-300ER.
This is BIG and good news for us tech freaks who wants to be online almost 24/7. You can be online for 30-minutes and able to upload your airplane selfie, videos, and groufie, lol. 

PAL also offers myPAL eSuite that will allow us passengers be entertained while on board with 300 hours of free movies. How cool is that? T…

Iloilo - Where to Stay, Where to Eat, What to do

I have been wanting to visit Iloilo so bad because I want to try the original Batchoy. And luckily I have an opportunity to have a quick visit in Iloilo. Aside from Batchoy, Iloilo is also famous for its wide range of churches in the city. It is also the first to be a rural city in Panay island, no wonder the city has many shopping malls, establishments - restaurant, bar, hotels etc. and a big airport. 
Going to Iloilo via Manila:
Domestic direct flight from Manila to Iloilo is about 1 hr plane ride via CebuPac and PAL.  If you want a quick stop to Guimaras you may do so as it is only less than an hour away from the airport going to the port of Guimaras. 
Because I only have 2 days to explore this beautiful city and I was really exhausted from my 5 days tour in Antique, a better way to relax and have a good night sleep is to stay at SEDA ATRIA ILOILO. SEDA is a Filipino word for "silk". This hotel is considered as a 4-star hotel and already …

Experience Antique: Mararison Island

I thought I will never be able to go to Antique after having Influenza after my Davao trip. I have to take full bed rest for almost 2 weeks just so I can fully recover. But thankfully, after 10 days of resting, I was able to follow my colleagues in Antique and already missed 2 days of our itinerary. 
I arrived Kalibo Airport last Monday, September 26 and waited for my shuttle service to drop me off to Culasi Antique. It was a 2-hr drive from Kalibo going to Antique and when I get to Culasi, I rode a small boat that will only fit 6 persons max ( that's what I think, lol). I was with these 2 boatmen and we traveled from port to the island about 20minutes because of the strong current and waves (Jesus Christ!) I survived that 20-minute long boat ride that I felt it was 20 years already, lol.
During Typhoon Yolanda, Mararison Island was hit and houses are washed out. It was devastating to all IP (Indigenous People) who lost their houses and boats. But thankfully after few years after…
