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.

Newest hotel in Pasay/Makati: Aurum One Hotel

One of the newest hotels in Pasay/Makati is Aurum One Hotel, located at 1682 Evangelista street cor Heneral Del Pilar street, Bangkal Makati City Philippines. This is one of the good choice of hotel which is less than 30-mins away from Manila Airport Terminal 3. Hotel room price starts from 2,000 PHP to 3,500 PHP / 40.81 USD to 71.42 USD per night good for 2 pax with free breakfast and WIFI on every room. They have Deluxe, Business room, and Loft. 

Getting to the hotel from Manila Airport:

- From Manila Airport via public transportation, ride a jeepney that goes to MRT Taft, the drop-off to MRT Taft station and rides another jeepney going to LRT Buendia Station. 
- Take an UBER or Grab taxi if you have luggage with you and you want a hassle-free commute. 

Jeepney fare is 7 PHP / .14 USD

Deluxe Queen room is equipped with full hotel amenities - LED TV, clean ensuite bathroom with complete toiletries, comfy bed, coffee and tea maker, cabinet, free wifi and free breakfast. 

One of my fave room here is their Loft that costs 3,500 PHP / 71.42 USD per night good for 2 pax. Some of their loft rooms have 1 bunk bed and some don't have. Just recently they added this bunk bed for some rooms because loft room is actually good for a family of 4. 

On the first floor, you have 1 comfy couch, laptop table, LED tv, bathroom and kitchen area that has a personal fridge, coffee and tea maker and microwave oven (for a request). On the 2nd floor, you have 1 queen bed, LED tv, coffee table and cabinet. 

Outside the hotel, there is a Family Mart convenient store and some walking distance fast food chains, banks, and other establishments. If you wanna go to the nearest mall, I suggest going to Mall of Asia which is about less than 20-mins away from the hotel. 

Getting to Mall of Asia from the hotel:

- Ride any jeepney going to EDSA MRT, drop off at EDSA and ride another jeepney going to Mall of Asia. 

Jeepney fare is 7 PHP / .14 USD

What to do around Pasay/Makati area:

- Go to the mall (Mall of Asia)
- Go to Resorts World Manila (watch a movie, buy luxury brand products, watch a movie and play casino)
- Go to City of Dreams (play casino, let your kids play at City of Dreams by Dreamworks)
- Go to Solaire Manila (play casino and try their expensive restaurants)

Pasay / Makati is one of the busiest areas in Manila but it's all accessible to establishments and airport.

  1. This looks like a great looking hotel for the price and the free wifi in each room. I just do not know if I will ever go to that neck of the woods, but at least I now know there is such a good place to stay overnight there.

  2. This one is strategically located near the CBD and also has quick access to the airport. Their facilities are also good.

  3. Wow. That's one awesome room. Looks very chic and sophisticated. It also has a kitchen area? That's awesome. Btw, that's a perfect example of Room with a View in City!

    1. Exactly and easy access to the airport

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.
