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…

Hotel Condo Review - Hotel 101

This Condo Hotel in Pasay City is one of the newest hotel near Mall of Asia and Manila Airport - Hotel 101 just opened February 2016 and has 400+ rooms. One of the best choice when you are on a lay over in Mania or perhaps having a short stay in Manila then this hotel is for you. Hotel rooms cost 3,500 PHP to 5,000 PHP depending on the season. All room are the same in size and design. 

Room has 1 queen size bed and 1 single bed with 48 inch LED TV, en-suite bathroom, kitchen sink, and microwave oven. I like the pop of color in this room which makes it more inviting to stay inside your hotel room. The hotel also has a pool area, an adult pool and a kiddie pool so for any family who wants to have a quick staycation with your kids, this hotel will provide what every kid wants - swimming! 

There are lots of restaurant located outside the hotel that you can choose from. Beside the hotel is Burger King, 711 24/7 Convenient Store and 5-minute walk to the Mall of Asia. 

At the lobby area, there is an affordable restaurant - Amico. 

What I like about the hotel:

- Close to the mall
- Near Manila Airport
- Close to restaurants and other establishments
- Clean room
- With a pool and jacuzzi
- Free Wifi
- Spacious lobby area

This hotel is best choice for business and leisure travelers and to know more about the hotel promos and rates visit

Hotel Condo Review - Hotel 101

  1. Looks very nice. I stayed in a Hostel in Makati when I was in Manila earlier this year, so a different sort of place to this one altogether, but on the basis of what you've written in this review I might have to consider going a bit more upmarket net time :-)

  2. This hotel looks lovely. And the pool and jacuzzi are very nice additions!

  3. I like the wallpaper in the room, it says "HAPPY"! That's the perfect spirit, when traveling we should be happy. Ok, maybe you should try to see the bright side of everything every day, but at least on a trip, let's smile more and leave our concerns away.

  4. Simple and elegant is what I would describe based on your review and pics. The rooms look comfy alright. Will look it up when I get to Manila. :)

  5. It looks like a great hotel where you can spend some time, in between flights. Being so close the the airport gives it a huge advantage for people who want to see the city but want to be based closed to the airport, for early flights.

  6. Looks so neat and so white! Am sure this must be a great stay for people stopping by!

  7. I often lookout for hotels near airport during travels, dread the traffic to airport from city. This looks like a neat place to stay. Great pics.

  8. Would be nice to include some TripAdvisor and ratings into your review, since people really trust those platforms.

  9. Thanks for the recommendation. Looks like a convenient place with all that is needed for a family to have a good stay in between flights. Im sure I could spend an entire afternoon sipping a cold one and going for a swim in that pool!

  10. What a very lovely hotel room. We would also enjoy the pool and jacuzzi, also WIFI is a must! This would be a great place to stay before your flight!

  11. Good looking hotel. I would recommend it to my friends visiting Manila. Great post. Thanks

  12. Hotel looks great. Great to have Jacuzzi and pool. Looks like a perfect place to stay

  13. I loved the Condo Hotel's interior . Its simple yet classy. The room looked quite spacious. The best part of the hotel is its location.

  14. I think a short stay here will be refreshing! Loved the interiors and seems to be so ideally located too.

  15. Looks like a great place to stay if your are doing a stopover in Manila. And you're right: the pop of color in the room makes it more pleasant. Nice accommodation tip!

  16. Looks like a very comfortable option if you are travelling to/from the airport or having a long layover. I would definitely love to have a place with a pool or Jacuzzi before or after a flight.

  17. It looks nice, clean and modern. Great that there is also a pool. But it looks a bit to clinical for me, not really what I look for while traveling.

  18. Really cozy and nice place:-) I would like to stay there. Thanks for sharing :-)

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas. Batangas is a 2-hour drive from Manila and Bauan Batangas has white beach sand. La Thalia is a half hectare property that has a great beach front andrelaxing rooms - couple room & barkada room/family room, Pavillion that can accommodate 100 pax, restaurant, basketball court, table tennis, and water sports such as Jetski, Paddle Boat, Kayak and they also offer island tour where you and your group can have fish feeding and snorkeling at the same time.
