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!

No recommended accommodations yet as all of them are cheap by Manila standards. There's no such thing as cheap Batanes accommodations for the rates are really affordable for budget travelers and backpackers. The only thing missing are low fares to Batanes that come from once-in-a-blue-moon promos by Seair. Ferries to Batanes are also rare and require long land travel to the northern tip of Luzon Island.
Daily Flights to Batanes will be available via Seair in September 2009 that will hopefully bring down flight ticket prices to the idyllic island destination.
Please call the published contact numbers or visit official websites for updated room rates, promos, reservations, and other inquiries.
