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!
Got this fron YouTube. Cute even if there are inaccuracies plus other trivias:
1. Ferdinand Magellan was a Portuguese in the service of Spain 2. The British took Manila from Spain in 1762 2. The French forcibly took Basilan in 1865 from the Sultanate of Sulu 3. Germany, France, Japan and Britain wanted to take Manila in 1898 4. The USofA ruled RP for much more than 10 years. They came here under pretense of liberators but instead their republic of the free turned into an empire they justified as their manifest destiny.
So many things you ought to know about history not taught in schools.
History recorded by Filipino eyes as well as others not American.
History taught us by Americans are distorted in their favor.
