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!
Blog Policy on Disclosure, Paid Reviews and Advertorials
This blog prides itself with being one of the very few blogs who've resisted offers of free hotel accommodations, resort tours, free meals at restaurants and other freebies in exchange for positive or neutral reviews.
This Tutubi was able to maintain for the last six years. On this occations, Tutubi's slightly changing this policy to be flexible enough to post advertorials from companies that can possibly provide travel funds (as you know, I need to travel to maintain this blog)
Advertisements on this blog e.g. Adsense, text link ads, affiliate marketing and other travel fund generating sources can't fully defray the high costs of unsponsored travel.
This blog will now occasionally post advertorials but full disclosure shall be pursued. However, no advertorials nor paid reviews shall still be posted here for hotels (and other accommodations), resorts, restaurants and other similar establishments thus still assuring readers of unbiased reviews and recommendations. Positive or neutral reviews shall always be devoid of strings attached.
