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!

    Something About Paete

    Let me share some pictures of Paete I took during the Christmas break, mostly taken in Wawa Park which is presently submerged due to the rising water of Laguna de Bay:

    Wawa Park submerged

    Bird Watching mode (wish I could zoom in). Chinese egrets can be seen from a distance but my lens can't zoom in

    The boat by the lake. You can also see the long tube that connects Laguna de Bay to Caliraya lake

    I love Laguna the Bay and the cities along its shores. You also got fabulous churches there.

    The second photo is my favorite! Hmmm...a 300mm or 400mm? I wish I have one of those, too.

    i can see that you took the picture probably from the service road leading to wawa facing the southeast side. also i can see fish traps or rather shrimp traps beneath those bamboo poles and the two elongated looking green islets are bumbon, a kind of fish trap harvested periodically by means of small purse seine. not too long ago, that general location was almost always inaccessible to fishermen due to thick outgrowth of aquatic reeds and weeds. brb

    the park was submerged? interesting. is this a regular effect of the tides? the trend was that laguna de bay is getting more shallow. if this is an irregular occurence, perhaps it's due to the damming of the lake to prevent water from going to the pasig river, which the lake's fishermen have been protesting as interfering with the lake's natural cycles.

    yes, that oveflowing of water occurs regular every 2 or 4 years, i guess.
