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!

    Photography at the National Museum

    On taking pictures inside the National Museum (photography), it has slightly improved that they now allow taking pictures inside the museum except you cannot use flash (it's understandable sine some objects on display ma be sensitive to light) and that only small cameras are allowed. Bringing in of "big" cameras i.e. SLR and DSLR require special permits from the National Museum curator. Those people are still armed with archaic ideas that DSLRs are used exclusively by professional photographers.
