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!

How to commute to Splash Island Resort:
There are no direct buses to Splash Island. Commuting there involves a bus to Pacita Complex in San Pedro (e.g. Pacita Liner, Cher Bus Line) on Taft Avenue (Pasay Rotonda, they used to come from Lawton Park N Ride bus terminal) or on EDSA (Cher, Jam, Pacita Liner, Dela Rosa Bus Line). When you reach Jollibee Pacita Complex (or Sto Nino Church if via Pacita Southwoods), transfer to a tricycle with request the driver to drop you off at the resort (It's also recommended to pre-arrange your return trip to Pacita Complex to get back home). No updated fare and transportation costs to Splash Island though.
