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!

    Cebu Pacific Flights to Caticlan Airport(Boracay)

    Cebu Pacific's new direct flights from Manila to Caticlan and Cebu to Caticlan is now live. From Caticlan, the world famous beaches of Boracay is just a short boat ride away.

    Last December, Tutubi availed of the famous Piso Fare of Cebu Pacific to get low cost, short travel time to Boracay Island. He came to explore Boracay Island's hidden wonders the usual visitors of the Philippines' most famous tourist destination don't get to see.

    The spanking new ATR 72-500 aircraft still smelled like it has just been taken out of the factory. Arranged with 19 rows and 4 columns, passengers were made to occupy front, middle and back rows to stabilize the aircraft. Stabilization also includes weighing of passengers with their carry-on baggage (this is similar to Tutubi's SeaAir flight to Busuanga in 2004). Passengers were requested to deplane by rows starting at the back rows, still, for plane stabilization purpose.

    The best part of the flight, Tutubi's favorite, were the in-flight games where the cabin crew asked trivia questions from passengers and gave away nice shoe bags courtesy of Sun Cellular. It's unprecedented that Tutubi was able to win two shoe bags; one for each flight of his round-trip ticket!

    This will be the first of a series of the wandering Tutubi's Budget Boracay with a Blast and also the first field assignment of his new Nikon D80 camera with Nikon 18-200 VR lens :P
