After a quick visit to Jardin de Marimar, our next stop was to one of Antipolo’s top tourist destinations, the famous Hinulugang Taktak Waterfalls. Located in Brgy. Dela Paz Antipolo City lies the 12-meter-high waterfall of Hinulugang Taktak which gain its fame through the song “Tayo Na Sa Antipolo”. When we finally arrived, we are welcome by the friendly smiles of the staff. Friendly? Hmm, maybe just eager to take money from a foreigner for an overpriced entrance fee. And, to make it worse, they weren’t shy to announce it…
Urbanites, are you looking for a nice spot to kick back and relax that isn’t too far from Manila? Time to escape the hustle and bustle of your hectic schedule? Let’s explore Ternate Cavite Beach Resort and see if it is as good as it sounds
MOA Amusement Park, SM By The Bay – First of all, a day is never enough for this place. Add to this, the endless choices of dining, recreation, and entertainment outside the humongous mall. The best place to watch the sunset and cap the day of shopping. Ever since I can remember, SM has been the go-to mall for everyone. And this has not changed. SM Mall of Asia in Pasay being the 3rd biggest of all the SM Supermalls. But the humongous size of this mall isn’t the only thing that makes this mall unique.
The people of Antipolo and the many others that seem to migrate there certainly know the Tamagoya Noodle House. It needs no introduction, fan fares or grand trumpet entrances, it just does what it does and that seems to work. Now, it may be small and unassuming, the kind of place you could easily walk past without a second glance in Makati, but this little restaurant definitely opens the doors to Antipolo’s world of food.
The Tamagoya Noodle House may be small, hidden and seemingly forgotten about, but it holds a secret that keeps people coming back. That secret is it’s Japanese cuisine and Tamagoya Ramen. Is it as good as the locals say? Does it match up to Metro Food? Lets find out…
Only having opened in early 2017, the Ban Be Ca Phe Restaurant is one of the latest to join the vastly underrated Antipolo dining scene.
The Ban Be Ca Phe Restaurant is Vietnamese-Filipino dining so if you are looking for something a little different then this could be the answer. Located in a cozy but charming nook just a stones throw from Robinson’s, making it the perfect spot for both lunch or dinner.
The cafe can be divided into three key areas… The veranda, an inside dinning area and a traditional Vietnamese sitting area. The interior design is quaint and creative.. At first I wasn’t sure about the design but after a while I started to appreciate it.
Aliw Falls Laguna is another amazing waterfall we recently visited. Is it worth visiting? Read our review, see the video and get all the tips. Feel free to leave a comment and help us rate these Falls. For quite a while now, Laguna’s main claim to fame was Pagsanjan Falls (now called Cavinti Falls) and for the adrenaline-junkies, the shooting-the-rapids boat ride. But, in the last few years it seems more and more unknown waterfalls are being “discovered”.
Coron has been dropping jaws for years and it is no surprise why. A great place to start is not always by exploring the beautiful island of Coron, first, explore the small town of Coron.
Coron town tour, run by K-Tours, is a half day tour which gives you an option to explore and learn about Coron town, its major landmarks, people, dialect and its culture. This tour is the most convenient, easiest way and most affordable way of experiencing Coron Town. They have a complimentary free pick-up service from your hotel located in Coron Town Center to the drop-off area. We are not affiliated with K-Tours in any way…
Our first stopover took us to the Coron Souvenir and Gift Shop where you can find many cheap souvenir items. Lualhati Park is Coron’s very own bay walk with the inspiring beauty of the scenic Coron coastline was the next stop. Other stops were St Agustine Parish Church and Mount Tapyas.
Yes, there is a snake hidden in this picture.. It is real and so easy not to see when you are bushwalking… Can you see the snake?
Coron Town might seem like a small sleepy province village to you but you would be surprised how much there is to do… When you first arrive in Coron and settle into your hotel or backpackers, it’s a good idea to explore the town before you start any island-hopping tours or excursions. One thing you learn in the Philippines… No matter where you go, there is always traffic! And Coron Town was no exception… There is no SM, Robinson or mall as such to head for in the town proper but there are food shops around town and a market near Lualhati park and the harbor. This is where we picked up some aqua-shoes and a waterproof carry bag.
For most people, the thought of saving thousands of dollars to travel the world is an unreachable task. While there are many ways to save money, for some, there’s no amount of budgeting that will help them save enough. Reading articles on how people saved some crazy amount for travel can just be depressing. “I could never do that,” you say. “Sure, those people saved tens of thousands making minimum wage, but I can’t even afford food.” All those articles on travel blogs, Elite Daily and Buzzfeed are far too unrealistic. I admit I’m guilty of this too.
Manila Baywalk may be getting overlooked but it should never be forgotten… See why… Take a walk along Manila Baywalk. Once an area for pickpockets and thieves until it was transformed. What is it like today? Busy during the day but this area comes to life at night. There are plenty of open air cafes serving local cuisine while, all at the same time allowing people the chance to fully appreciate the beauty of the a Manila Bay Sunset.
