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!
New Year Countdown Parties Fireworks: Manila Makati and Quezon City
Tutubi's looking for a list of New Years Eve party for the countdown to 2011. At the top of his head, here's the initial list of places to be on December 31, 2010 to party the night away with concerts and fireworks.
Musical Dancing Fountain at Manila's Rizal Park (Luneta) near the Central Lagoon
SM Mall of Asia (MOA), Pasay City
Eastwood Mall, Libis, Quezon City
Republiq Bar at Newport Mall (Newport City and Resorts World Manila that Tutubi visited recently where he watched Kaos the Musical). Concert Only, no fireworks display due to proximity to NAIA Terminal 3
There's a traditional new years countdown party at the corner of Ayala Avenue and Makati Avenue (front of The Peninsula Manila and Shangri-la Hotel where you can enjoy new years eve buffet promos) but was not held in 2009.
Too, bad, no information yet for SM City North EDSA and Trinoma, 5 minutes away from Tutubi and where he can see the pyrotechnics from home.
So where will you be on New Years eve, partying or just at home?
carlotta, i'm mulling writing a Kaos musical review one of these days...usual fairy tale story prince saves the girl of his dreams but the magic show, props, acrobatics, music, and dances were simply....awesome! :P
