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…

How To Score A Cheap Airfare


Do you have a DREAM DESTINATION for your SOLO travel or perhaps with your partner? Have you been planning on traveling around the Philippines and abroad? 

As a Travel Blogger, I always search for a Seat Sale promo almost every month and I even cross-checked it with other booking websites just to be sure that I am getting the BEST airfare. But this is not enough to get your dream travel!


Here are my tips on How To Score A Cheap Airfare:

1. Subscribe to all your favorite Airline - Local and Internation Companies. 

This is your Number 1 chance to get the BEST promo. All you need to do is sign up and you will immediately have a subscription and will receive the latest promo of the airline company. 

2. Get Miles Subscription

Aside from the monthly subscription, YOU MUST get a Miles Subscription because airline companies often give a special promo. A few months ago, I was able to book a flight Manila-Tacloban-Manila via Airasia and I only used my Miles/Points and paid the webfee and TAX. Usually, Manila-Tacloban roundtrip airfare ticket will cost 3,000 PHP / 60 USD but because I used my AirAsia points, I only paid 200 PHP for my roundtrip ticket! 

This week, I was able to book a roundtrip ticket from Manila to Legazpi and again, I used my points (Cebupacific Getgo - 40 points only!!!) and just paid webfee and TAX of 600 PHP. 

3. DO NOT rush on booking especially on Seat Sale!

A most important trick I learned is to never book a flight when everyone is booking at 12 midnight until 5 in the morning. Airline promo starts at 12 midnight and every Traveler is waiting for that clock to strikes 12 and boom! Airline website will crash and it will take you forever to book that roundtrip ticket. So better book a flight in the morning, after lunch time when everyone is busy and working. 

4. Choose your travel date during weekdays.

Cheap flights are always on weekdays from Tuesday to Thursday.

5. Download Booking Mobile App

Recently, I was able to book a domestic flight via Traveloka and only paid 1,100 PHP for a roundtrip airfare. I am starting to LOVE TRAVELOKA - for real!!!

6. BE PATIENT!

I do not have patience for many things but I have 200% PATIENCE when booking a flight especially on a Seat Sale promo. That's why I am able to travel CHEAP and able to go to places I've been wanting to see by not getting broke, lol! 😝🙂

Goodluck and Happy Traveling!!!

  2. Agree with your points and even while booking it online, do deselect all the irrelevant selections otherwise you will end up paying all those extra.

  6. I have never actually made full advantage of my miles enough for another trip. The Cebu Pacific miles are not too easy to monitor. Thanks for the tip about buying Piso Sale fares. We had been lucky with our trips to Incheon and Tokyo before by booking in the middle of the day as well.

  8. Definitely the best way to have a fun filled travel vacation is to first map out or plan the travel itself and with the availability of information today this is quite easy to do. Jeftine avio karte

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.
