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!

I "used" to love this until last night... my bf and i were craving for great pizza last night so we went to volante. we ordered one 6 inches pizza and then crave for more this time we got 8 inches... Ok na sana until a COCKROACH crawled on our table... yung weird specie na ipis! We immediately called the waiter. He picked it up with a tissue... when we paid our bill, I reminded him that this might be brought to the sanitation department.. NO DISCOUNT nor SIMPLE APOLOGY...I'm so displease...
