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!
The latest slogan of the Department of tourism was just released and it simply says: It's more fun the Philippines!
Tutubi doesn't care if the new slogan is an alleged copycat of an old 1961 slogan of Switzerland, it probably may be just a coincidence and not intentional similarity due to the use of simple phrase.
It's really more fun in the Philippines, reason why Tutubi chose to stay rather than join the millions of Filipinos working or immigrated abroad.
It's really more fun in the Philippines, that Tutubi intends to visit all 79 provinces of the country, rather than just Boracay or foreign destinations Filipinos drop just to impress others.
It's more fun in the Philippines, even if many Filipinos don't deserve to be raved about nor loved!
Tutubi still prefers the old slogan though: Wow Philippines
Perhaps when he becomes Tourism Secretary he'll be able to make necessary programs to attract tourists to the country, especially backpackers that most Tourism secretaries disregard if not abhor (like former tourism secretary Alberto Lim)
