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!
Tutubi's recent daytrip to Tagaytay made him stop by on the national road near Taal Vista Hotel to take this picture of a giant ferris wheel in Tagaytay Ridge that will surely offer leisure park visitors a stunning view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano, and probably romantic sunset views of Tagaytay.
UPDATED: April 2014
What used to be a vacant lot beside Taal Vista Hotel that was used as a horseback riding with a view by children and kids alike is turned into a leisure park by SM Land.
map of Sky Ranch is available here (via OpenStreetMap much better than Google Map and Wikimapia)
Tagaytay Skyranch's SkyEye: the giant ferris wheel in Tagaytay as of August 2013
Just how will they call the giant ferris wheel: Tagaytay Eye? (much like the MOA Eye :P
It will probably be open during Holy Week when Manila is shutdown on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday only to re-open on Easter Sunday.
