Taal Volcano Tour | Taal Volcano Horseback Riding With Cheche

Well, okay, officially the hike is rated as “easy” BUT… Because this is a semi-active volcano (you will see stream rising from rock formations during your hike) it can get a little warm of your trek during warm to hot days. On the day we went, it was HOT. At every rest-stop we passed there were hikers resting, covered in sweat. We did it the easy way (by horseback). Taking the Taal Volcano Tour by horseback is definitely worth it. Watch the video to see the difference.

Malcapuya Island Coron – A postcard perfect getaway

The white sandbar and the clear sea views of Malcapuya Island Coron are very relaxing. You will forget everything as you imagine yourself in paradise. Are you the type of person who loves the beach?

The sand up near the cottages and resting areas is a mixture of sand and stones. A few more steps then the sand becomes white and powdery soft. Then, once in the water, it becomes a mixture of pure soft sand with bits of stones. Compared to other white sand beaches we have visited, this one is quite large but the turquoise water against white sand is what really sets Malcapuya Island apart from the rest – It is literally like something from a postcard. Needless to say, there are many good snorkelling spots in the area.

The only downside of the island is some trash we saw on the beach. How can some local tourists do this? You come to a place to admire its beauty and yet you destroy it? I’m pretty sure they are local tourists because foreigners won’t eat that local junk food.

Hinulugang Taktak Falls, Pool & Park Reviewed

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…

Coron Town | All You Need To Know

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.

Manila Baywalk feature

Manila Baywalk Review

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.

Baclayon Church Bohol Review – Religious Cultural Treasure

Baclayon Church Bohol is a “must see” attraction for many when in the area. When we were there it was undergoing renovations but still, it retained its charm. The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception or commonly known as the Baclayon Church in Baclayon, Bohol is the second oldest stone church in the Philippines and it firmly stands as a proof to the boholano’s devotion to their faith.

Fort Santiago Manila All You Need To Know

One of the few ancient remains of the Philippines in Manila. To be honest, the fort is a genuinely interesting attraction for locals and tourists alike that will not only interest you with its architecture but also give you an insight into the country’s identity and culture. I find it relaxing just to walk around the area, getting a sense of what life must have been like during Spanish colonial rule. It’s a hot walk in summer though, so take an umbrella if possible.
