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!
The HARIBON FORUM: How well do we know our world heritage sites?
When: 24 August, 2006 - 6:00pm
Where: Meralco Mini-Theater, Lopez Building, Meralco Center, Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City
World heritage according to the UNESCO means “our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations.” There are currently eight world heritage sites in the Philippines: the Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park; the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park; the Rice Terraces in the Philippine Cordilleras; the Historic Town of Vigan in Ilocos Sur; and the four Baroque churches of Santo Tomas de Villanueva in Iloilo, San Augustin in Ilocos Norte, Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion in Ilocos Sur, and San Augustin in Manila.
One of the reasons why protecting the sites is of great importance is because inclusion in the World Heritage list benefits not only eco-tourism but also the environment in that area. We preserve these sites not only for our country's benefit but also for the rest of the world so they may learn our heritage. Join us as we gain perspectives on this issue and let us take you on an audio-visual tour of the different sites we proudly call our world heritage.
