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!

    Bus Terminals on EDSA, Cubao, Quezon City

    An update to the old post on Cubao that has become sort of provincial bus station hub in northern Metro Manila (that will soon be replaced with an integrated North Bus Station somewhere in Balintawak, Quezon City Area). This is different from Araneta Center Bus Station

    Provinsial bus ban is not yet in effect. I don't agree with transferring them to Valenzuela. it's not the provincial buses that's causing traffic but private vehicles and city buses (too many of them even if not half full)

    The information herein is painstakingly gathered by Tutubi whenever he shuttles between Makati and Quezon City (to assure you that the directions and map are highly accurate and latest). This post will also be updated regularly to reflect the latest information.

    UPDATED: August 2016
