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!

    List of Holidays 2013 Long Weekends Schedule

    Even if you're a fan of unplanned travels, it's always helpful to know in advance when to go even if you don't where you're going.

    Here's a recently released list of national holidays in the Philippines by President Noynoy Aquino.

    there's also the second Monday of May which falls on May 13, 2013 as national election day, enshrined in the Constitution (it's not a holiday but it's a non-working day, overtime pay applies per DOLE rules)

    Dates for Muslim holidays of Eid’l Fitr (end of Ramadan) and Eidul Adha still to be determined

    Note: not much long weekends in 2013, be mindful of Department and Labor and Employment (DOLE) pay rules for national holidays include full pay, 200% of daily wage (double pay) or overtime pay)
