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!

    anonymous, take the van/bus from caticlan to Iloilo. In Iloilo, take the ferry to Bacolod with regular schedules (travel time here is around 1 hour). I don't know if there's a direct flight from Caticlan to Bacolod

    Palpak ang ceres. Were waiting for almost 6hrs pag baba namin ng roxas port. Nasira kasi yung bus namin. Sabi ng conductor at driver may padating ng resque but til now were still waiting for that resque whatsoever. Umabsent na ko dahil sa kapalpakan nila. Ano bang klaseng management meron ang ceres?? Badtrip!!!
