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!
Loboc River, a surprisingly clean and green river in the beautiful island of Bohol that can be enjoyed by a cruise on a catamaran-looking hut eating sumptuous Filipino food and serenaded by everpresent singers.
Video is from inquirer.net. Tutubi was able to do this enjoyable ride in April 2003
How to get to Loboc, Bohol for the river cruise:
Loboc, Bohol can be reached via the airport from almost any major airport in the Philippines or via a short ferry ride from Cebu City. Vans waiting at the pier can be hired to tour you around the island.
