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!

    it's been a long time since i've been to PG. ang mahal na pala ng pamasahe. not that i am really aware, kasi most of the time i go to calapan and sometime PG, as i used to work for a regional office in mimaropa.

    the detailed cost of expenses would surely help us when budgeting our family trip there. siguro pag hanging amihan na ulit.

    Marinduque has been placed #2 in the list of the World's Top Islands. Marinduque has contributed immensely to the development of tourism, culture and history. MARINDUQUE does not appear in your list of Philippine Provinces, consequently, it appears left out in your website. Could you please consider its inclusion? my website is if you need info about this island-province. Thank you

    eli, marinduque's not really omitted, it's simply because i've never been there thus no post yet :(
