About This Blog
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!

At Tagaytay rotonda (roundabout), look for 7-11 then drive straight ahead to Tagaytay-Nasugbu highway. At Palico intersection you may choose left turn to Balayan-Calatagan or right to Nasugbu, then turn towards Calatagan.

    Have you been to Ronco? We're a bit hesitant to try out the place. I think I need more reviews about the place. Thanks.

    Ive been to Ronco and it's a nice place but it's quite far and the roads are rough, so better bring a four-wheel drive. Don't expect luxury but it's a nice, romantic place to stay for people who want to take a break from the bustling city.

    Want to try Ronco this weekend. We should be going to Stilts but we are a bit short on our budget.
