Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
One of Baguio's newest and unknown attractions, near Benguet's capital town La Trinidad and just a short jeepney ride away from the City of Pines lies Bell Church, a Taoist temple.
Bell church looks so much like typical Chinese temples (like the Taoist Temple in Cebu) but it's location is hidden by lush garden surrounding it. Red color dominates the landscaping with dragons even at the gates.
A building inside the temple houses a queer fusion of Chinese images with familiar Catholic symbols. Incense sticks and saying your prayers as well as consulting Chinese people of your luck is available.
