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!

    Laguna: Visita Iglesia Route Map to 7 Churches, Itinerary

    Visita Iglesia traditions are observed by Catholics in Holy Week to visit 7 churches. Herewith is the route map of Visita Iglesia in Laguna featuring old churches though information on churches can be found. Seven though for old churches in Laguna is not enough but it's also a sin if you try to visit even fourteen of them.

    Tutubi's first memorable trip that also started his "travel career" was the unplanned tour of laguna with his travel buddies that took them to 13 churches in two days and visited lots of other sites Laguna has to offer.
