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!

    Bohol Historical Sites:

    Bohol Blood Compact Site, the true one, is located in Loay town which accurately marks the location of the Sandugo blood compact treaty of friendship between Datu Sikatuna, a native Chieftain, Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, representing the King of Spain. We all know what happened later when the so called white friend turned his brown friends to slaves by subjugating them. This blood compact is not really the first "Treaty of Friendship" between Europe and Asia as erroneously claimed by many sources :(

    Dagohoy Marker in Magtangtang, Danao: Instead of celebrating


    Not the usual:

    Lamanoc Island Red Hematite Rock Paintings

    Not worth it:

    Bohol Man-made Forest, near Bilar and Loboc towns

    Bohol Blood Compact Site: this is not the true site of the blood compact, the true location, based on historical documents and affirmed by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP, formerly NHI) is in Loay town. This is good for a touristy photo-op though.

    Should you have suggestions and recommendations, tips, how to get to Bohol commute, cheap bohol packages and the likes, just contact Tutubi by leaving a comment here or on this blog's facebook page.

    The town of Anda in Bohol is not yet as popular as Panglao, but it is more captivating because of its serene white sand beaches. Not crowded yet.

    We stayed at Alona Beach when we went to Bohol. I forgot the actual name of the resort. The beach is nice on this part of the island.
