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!

How to get to Badian, Cebu:
In Cebu City, you may take vans or bus at the South terminal then drop of in Badian. Board a tricycle to the jump-off point of Kawasan.
Directions for cars: from Cebu City, drive past Carcar (where Tutubi noticed the old houses of the town). On reaching Badian, drive to the village of Matutinao. A short 15-minute trek/light walk along the water of the clean and green river and several bridge crossing will be rewarded with the breathtaking sight of the three-layered waterfalls.
I've been there 2 times already. I love kawasan falls. From Naga, Cebu we traveled for 3 hours because we did some stop overs in Carcar for buying chicharon, ampao and other snack stuffs before arriving. ^_^
