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!

    Zoo in Pililla, Rizal: Lyger Animal Sanctuary/Tiger Holding Facility

    A few months old public aquarium and zoo in Pililla, Rizal was visited unplanned by Tutubi recently when he noticed a sign leading to the zoo/aquarium along the highway of Pililla, Rizal just after passing by the twisties from Laguna and the 54 MW Pililla Wind Farm.

    Animals to see include lions, tigers, ligers/lygers, camels, sheep, birds, peacocks, civet cat (alamid), deer, boars, monkeys, ducks, sorry no elephants and giraffes and hippopotamuses and dinosaurs and velociraptors :)

    a sleeping civet cat (alamid), the one who can make your exotic kopi luwak/kape alamid/civet cat coffee

    a dromedary (single hump camel)

    you can ride a boat for PhP100 for 15 minutes, then feed the mighty ducks in the small shallow lagoon

    a cute kid enjoying mini-horses (i call them hobbit horses or puny ponies)

    the resident star of the zoo are these sleeping ligers/lyger that are really huge. Ligers are hybrid cross between a male lion (Panthera leo) and a female tiger, a tigress (Panthera tigris)

    Other facilities include a small aquarium, canteen above the lagoon but snacks only, ample parking space, simple toilets.
