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!

    Cheap Flights to Tawi-tawi (Cebu Pacific Promo)

    Cebu Pacific has done it again, even with SEAIR seemed to have stopped plying the Zamboanga - Tawi-tawi route, here comes Cebu Pacific serving the route to the southernmost province of the archipelago at a promo fare of PhP488.00.

    Official press release of Cebu Pacific says "Fly for as low as P488 from Zamboanga to Tawi-Tawi, this is 25% less than the lowest year-round fare for this route. Tawi-Tawi is Cebu Pacific's (CEB) 50th destination and 77th route. This will be a daily service starting October 14, utilizing an Airbus A319 aircraft.

    Tawi-Tawi is known for its abundant seafood, extensive coral reefs, white sand beaches and rich Malay history. The Turtle Islands are located here, which together with three islands in Malaysia, are the only living area of Green Sea Turtles in Asia and the world."

    Explore places to see in Tawi-tawi, from Bongao Airport and Simunul (where you can find the first mosque in the Philippines Sheik Karimul Makhdum, thus it's also called the birthplace of Islam in the country), with mosques and Christian churches and Chinese temples co-habit in cosmopolitan harmony, in contrast with the false notion that it's still a "no man's land" with nearby Basilan still having problems with security and safety for tourists.

    From Tawi-tawi, you can also hop on a Tawi-tawi ferry bound to Sandakan, Sabah Malaysia that can from your backpacking southeast Asia itinerary.

    Hopefully, Cebu Pacific will also commence flights to Batanes, if ZestAir won't do it, to provide competition and better fares to the Philippines' northernmost province.

    One of the most in demand airline I guess because of it's very cheap airline tickets. My friends and I have been thinking of flying to Cebu Pacific's budget fare to Taipei.

    Is that the entire cost? I remember when these airlines where offering P1 per seat. When I inquired, I found out that it's actually P1 for the fare + fuel fee of a few hundreds + tax + etc + etc. The end amount that you will pay is actually more expensive compared to other airlines.

    andolini, not really. the "hidden charges" are still low compared to regular fares...and sometimes, it's really piso fare of P1 fare with no hidden charges and taxes...just keep looking and try to compare
