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!

    Makati Caracol Festival Schedule: Mardi Gras on Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas

    It's time again for Makati's Mardi Gras-style fiesta called Caracol Festival with street dancing festivities similar to Cebu's Sinulog Festival, Iloilo's Dinagyang, Kalibo's Ati-atihan and Bacolod's Masskara Festival.

    Makati Caracol 2010 Schedule and parade route (image from Ayala Land)

    January 24, 2010 at 2pm
    Parade assembly area is at Gabriela Silang Carpark at the corner of Makati Avenue and Ayala Avenue (front of Peninsula Manila and beside Nielson Tower/Filipinas Heritage Library in the area called Ayala triangle)

    Activity area is at the corner of Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas (where the Ninoy Aquino Monument stands with corner buildings of BPI, Insular Life, The Enterprise Center and Ayala Tower One (near Makati Stock Exchange)

    Map of Makati's Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas where Caracol will be held:

    Traffic advisory: Note that Ayala Avenue will be closed to traffic from Makati Avenue up to Salcedo St and Dela Costa while Paseo de Roxas closed from Sedeno st to Dela Rosa St.

    Should you happen to go there, you might catch the flightless Tutubi taking pictures for his trip to Dinagyang didn't push through as usual.

    How to get to Ayala Avenue, Makati:

    How to commute to Ayala Avenue? It's easy via MRT Buendia Station where you can take a bus with signboard Ayala/LRT going to Baclaran or via LRT Sen. Gil Puyat Station (Buendia) where buses with signboard Ayala/Rustan's directly pass by the busy avenue (note the separate loading and unloading area designation is strictly enforced)

    Street parking on Ayala Avenue is non-existent. You can park, however, on side-streets as Makati Parking Authority (MAPA) does not tow parked vehicles on weekends and holidays.
