Picnic Grove Tagaytay Revisited Reviewed & Rated

Picnic Grove Tagaytay, one of the great picnic locations near Taal Lake that has always been very popular. Is it as good as it used to be? Read on to see… For a great view, ride the new Ferris wheel that is at the entrance of the Grove. After we paid the entrance fee, we stopped to buy some Strawberry Taho from one of the vendors. It was then we noticed there was no queue on the Ferris wheel so we gave it a try. Nice ride with great views…

Banana Island Coron

Banana Island Coron – All You Need To Know

During our last trip to Coron, we were able to visit Banana Island as part of an island hopping tour. Banana Island is part of a group of three islands south of Busuanga that made up our island-hopping tour from the town of Coron. It has more facilities for overnight stay. It also has huts and tables where we had our lunch for the day.

For those of you who have been to Bulog Dos Island, the water in front of the northern beach on Banana Island is just as clear but deeper than that of Bulog Dos. There’s a coral reef lying just off this beach for those who love to snorkel or dive.

There’s also a tree house, hammocks, and a store. You can go swimming and snorkel in the blue waters or just lie on the beach to have your perfect tan. You can also use the hammocks to relax or to have a quick nap.

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 Tour Review

Coron Town Tour Reviewed | Explore the Town

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.

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.
