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!
Probably the largest budget airline today, flying out of Clark Airport in Pampanga, AirAsia, is again offering their already cheap airfares to and from the Philippines, at still cheaper prices for your taking.

hi there. on our next trip 2 d philippines, i'll be arriving at DMIA smwhere at 5pm, on a flight from kota kinabalu n will b staying at d riviera mansion ;) fyi lastime,we took a cab.it cost us around 3000pesos,bought d ticket at d cab counter at DMIA.dnt know we were ripped off or not. question, how do i get from DMIA to malate on a bus?how much does it cost?n is it safe getting on a bus at dat particular time (after 5pm)...tq
anonymous, to get to malate you need to ride a taxi at DMIA up to the bus terminal in Angeles City e.g. victory liner. once in Manila (either Cubao, Quezon City) you need to transfer to another taxi at the terminal or walk to the LRT 2 (train) station up to Recto, transfer to LRT Doroteo Jose station then ride the train either to UN Avenue, Pedro Gil, or Quirino station (as i don't know where in malate you're going)
