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!

    Seafood Market of Real, Quezon

    'Tis the last day of the year with my family when suddenly the idea of going to Real in Quezon, a former barrio of Infanta, and about an hour drive away.

    Meandering through the zigzag streets we passed by the neighboring towns of Pakil, Pangil, Siniloan and Famy including the jumpoff points of Famy's waterfalls.Numerous mini waterfalls can also seen on the way.

    reaching Real, some seafood vendors informed us fishermen didn't go out to sea due to the strong currents but luckily we found some.

    I bough nearly two kilos of stingray for only P130. I know catching stingrays should never be condoned but I only remember Steve Irwin so accept my apologies :)

    I was about to take pictures of shrimps (bought for P290/kg, samaral (P90/kg) and other stuff but my battery died on me and I forgot to take my spare battery :(

    How to get to Real and Infanta Quezon:

    Commute: Raymond bus on EDSA Cubao has daily trips to Infanta and Real towns.
    Driving Directions: Fastest way to get there is via Marcos Highway and Sumulong highway of Antipolo, passing by Manila East road until you see the road to Infanta near Famy and Mabitac towns of Laguna.

    I happened to read your article about the sea foods market in Real so my wife and I drove last Saturday to check out the place. It was indeed a good place to visit, very idyllic, pristine beaches along the road going to Infanta. The sea foods (fish and shrimps) are indeed cheap. I bought stingray, our favorite, and cooked it Singaporean style with chili sauce. It was great!
