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!
the last authentic Chinese junk still sailing in Victoria Harbour: the Duk Ling moored at the Central Pier
Central pier and International Finance Center, the tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong towering over the magnificent skyline
the spaceage-looking Hong Kong Cultural Center and the Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, both landmarks of the modern city.
The Clock Tower is what's only left of the Kowloon station of the Kowloon-Canton railway in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Nearby are Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Space Museum, and the Avenue of Stars
The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai. Behind is the World Plaza, Hong Kong's second tallest skyscraper
the magnificent skyline of Central, Hong Kong Island. The edifice, with unique climbing lines resembling growing bamboo shoots symbolizing livelihood and prosperity, is the Bank of China Tower: the 3rd highest building there.
Crossing the Victoria Harbour is one of the 50 places of a lifetime according to National Geographic and also one of the 1000 places to see before you die.
Tutubi has only been to seven of the 1000 places...993 places more to visit! :)
