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!
Loboc-Loay River Cruise and Floating Restaurant in Bohol
A lesser-known River Cruise on Loboc River in Loay town of Bohol with starting point near the Loay Bridge. It features the catamaran-style floating restaurant, using two single-hull bancas supporting the weight of the restaurant, using a diesel engine, where guests partake buffet lunch (or dinner) while being serenaded by musicians.

Loay River cruise takes about an hour with a stop-over at an "authetic" Ati Tribe of aborigines upstream (more on this in a future post).
Loboc-Loay River Cruise Rate: PhP350.00/person
Trip Schedules: around lunch time usually 11am with actual boat departures depending on tourist arrivals
HI. I'm planning to create club dedicated for young Filipino travelers. I'm an avid traveler myself and I think I need people whom I share the passion with for traveling to be able to form this group. If you're interested please send me your contact details. Thank you.
