PALAWAN | Linapacan Island Escapades with Northern Hope Tours

Striking powdery beaches, long and unique sandbars, magnificent island views, and turquoise water - it does make sense when they say that Linapacan has the CLEAREST WATER IN THE WORLD!*  

When our boat docked in Pikal Island, our first destination, our guide Elfer apologized to us: 

“Ma’am, Sir pasyensya na po kayo medyo malabo yung tubig”

Julyan’s Coffee Spot, Fusion of Good Food and Love in San Narciso, Zambales

Disclaimer: At the time of our visit to Julyan’s Coffee Spot, it wasn’t the best time to drink coffee, but stories of food and love are best all day. 

Whenever you go beach outing you would need a place to kick off your great weekend and cap all the fun-filled activities and memories. In San Narciso, Zambales there is a quaint spot that will make your weekend not only unforgettable but also inspiring. With Julyan’s Coffee Spot wide selection of food and drink and Instagramable spot, you’ll surely have a summer blast! 

From 11AM to 10PM, you can grab a book or board games while sipping your milk tea using a metal straw and eating your finger food or pasta. While doing that, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the breeze of Zambales weather under tall fruit-bearing trees inside Julyan’s Coffee Spot. Then at night, be serenaded by soft music under the stars in well-lit surroundings. Brown bags are used to lamp the whole restaurant at night.

One Fine Afternoon in Doi Suthep Temple Chiang Mai

Do you like places where solemnity attracts like the wind giving you a chill? A place where you can see an ancient city on the hill that until now is still vibrant and is full of activity.  If yes, you might want to visit Doi Suthep Temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Bambike Ecotours | A New Way to See Manila

Biking is becoming my favorite to do whenever I travel. Some of the places I did a biking tour were in Bagan, Burma and just recently, in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It gives me joy that here in in the Philippines, we already have a biking tour inside the walled city of Intramuros. Bambike Ecotours is a different way to experience Intramuros because the tour will not only tell you trivia and history of the Philippines but also, you are participating in a social enterprise that promotes the People, the Planet and Progress.

CEBU | Lapu-Lapu Shrine

Cebu is home of the first Filipino hero, Raja Lapu-Lapu. He and his men fought for their land against Spanish invaders in what we call Battle of Mactan. Today, we memorialize that historic event through erecting a 20-foot bronze statue of the Raja.

The Birds of Alabang

Never thought that waiting for a bus could be a bird watching too. We were walking on the Northbound side of the South Super Highway when we saw a flock of birds playing in the sky. Some lining up on the cables singing as if serenading the sky as it comes to pass.
