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 More About Paete

    Pictures of Paete taken April 2006 using Canon Ixus 30:

    Wawa park before sunset

    sunset over Rizal Province and Laguna de Bay. This picture is also the one used by the heartwarming slideshow A Parent's Wish available here.

    View of Paete town, the tail-end is where Wawa Park is located.

    The Three Crosses standing on top of the hill of the Sierra Madre overlooking the town and acting as shield against typhoons coming from the Pacific Ocean and Quezon Province

    The 3 Crosses can be reached via a 45 minute trek through concrete steps from the town proper. Descent takes only about 15 minutes. "Over the hill" people can however reach the summit on a vehicle via a feeder road winding through the barrio of San Antonio, Kalayaan town.

    On your way to the summit, you will also pass by this lagoon carved out by a waterfall feeding the rivulet that runs through the center of the town

    nice picture. i hope though that that is not our old "talon" waterfalls whose volume of water flowing down was way much bigger than these present " trickles". thanks. siyanga pala there's one more place in humarap where you can take a fantastic view of the town, it is called tanawan, slightly above the middle of the boondok. most town folks knew about it. love your pictures.

    it's nice to know that we still have picture perfect falls that side of town! i just hope that people are more aware of our environment, so as not to allow the destruction of God's wonders. nice pictures!
