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!
Holy Child Pensionne: Accommodations in Bato, Leyte
Bato is a small town in Leyte, on the western side of Leyte island facing Bohol and Cebu. There are no big hotels
there but there several lodges and pension houses.
Here's Tutubi's simple accommodation in Bato, Leyte at Holy Child Pensionne where he spent a night and served as his base for exploring in Canigao Island Matalom and the so called Cuatro Islas of Hindang
Review: Holy Child Pensionne
Holy Child Pensionne has three types of rooms, all with private bath, hot and cold shower, cable TV (though the
TV are small 14 inch CRT, not the modern LCD but what do you expect at that price point. The rooms are spartan, clean; meals not included in the bill. You can just walk to the nearby market and eat at small restaurants and eateries.
