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!
A last minute decision to leave Picnic Grove ended up as a poor choice to head to Tagaytay zoo decided by a van driver that Tutubi didn't know turned out to be Residence Inn
The planned tour "tagaytay zoo" was canceled though at the last minute due to the rain, limited time (less than 2 hours to explore) made worse by a steep entrance fee of P200 is not cheap with too many kids in tow.

Tutubi has visited Residence Inn Zoo many moons ago and would love to re-visit some other time.
I've been in that place and also I heard of the 65% discount Residence Inn Hotel in Buyanihan.com? This is only a limited offer of a coupon from August 9 to August 14, 2010 but you can use the coupon until November 30, 2010! I think together with their amazing mini zoo, I would definitely come back this winter!
