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!
Many people ask Tutubi his recommended nearest white beach to Manila. While there are beach resorts in Cavite, Batangas, Bataan and probably Bulacan, all within three hours of travel time, this beach resort inside Manila is the cheapest of all where people from all walks of life can afford
...that is if you can stand it :P
The beachfront of Manila Bay, near Seafood Wharf and Manila Ocean Park serves as a beach resort for poor families willing to escape the searing summer heat ins spite of the danger of polluted water
the next time your looking for the best, closest, cheapest and nearest beach resorts in Manila, look farther at the western side of Bataan, the southernmost tip of Cavite, the shores of Quezon Province and almost all areas of Batangas that are far cleaner and not part of polluted Manila Bay.
Summer's here, enjoy the sun, sand, and sea once again!
