Any seasoned traveler would want to go off the beaten track and away from overly crowded tourist spots. You would want to explore the country you’re visiting as a local and see the non-commercialized areas for a truly authentic travel experience. The world is an unusual but gorgeous place, and if you’re looking for an adventure, it’s wise to not sign up for the basic and usual tours everyone does, but sign up for an unusual adventure instead. Below are some travel activity ideas you can do that are unusual, enjoyable and far from mundane.

Take the Galapagos Islands cruise in Ecuador

The Galapagos Islands are a place of wonder that should be on top of your bucket list. This World Heritage Site is known for its breathtaking landscape that includes barren volcanos, white sandy beaches and the bluest of waters. The 19 islands were actually what inspired Charles Darwin’s Evolution theory. They are considered to be nature’s museum displaying the most beautiful marine and wildlife. On the Galapagos Islands, you can see penguins, sea lions, giant land tortoises, exotic birds and many others living in their natural habitat. These facts are just some of the many gorgeous aspects of what the Galapagos Islands have to offer.

Go swimming in Antarctica

Antarctica has always been the go to spot for the perfect adventure with an array of activities. Even though swimming would be the last thing on your mind when visiting Antarctica, it’s surprisingly a very popular activity. There’s no better place to do it than on Deception Island; a volcanic caldera located near the tip of the peninsula of Antarctica. Even though its volcano is active, it’s actually a safe and sheltered harbor. Many travelers go to explore Deception Island for its beauty as well as take a dip in its thermal waters. It’s not as freezing as you would expect, but warm enough for a super quick dip!

Experience Irish Folklore at the Giant’s Causeway

This dramatic coastline with around 40 thousand basalt columns interlocking, caused by a volcano eruption, is one thing you shouldn’t miss. Legend has it though that it was created by angry giants who threw rocks out onto the sea. The 60 million year old landmark in Ireland boasts an array of activities to view this mythical and gorgeous landscape.  You can hike up along its narrow coastal trek for 4.5 miles to view the ruined castles, emerald fields and dry stone walls. It’s also the perfect place for bird watching and stunning photo ops.

Go camping near Thor’s Well in Oregon, USA

On the edge of the Oregon coast, sits a gaping and bottomless sinkhole with streams of sea water around it. Called Thor’s Well, it’s known to be a dangerous but a breathtaking site to visit. Camp at Cape Perpetua to enjoy its gorgeous scenic area and forests. The best time to visit Thor’s Well is an hour before the tide is high to see the formations without water, and then observe how it fills up with high waves. You can stick to the tourist trail, or go closer when the tide is low for a great picture.

Zip line to the Dark Cave in Vietnam

Asia is famous for its adventurous zip line routes through gorgeous scenery. The Phong Nha National Park in Vietnam is incomparable as it houses over 300 different grottoes and 400 million year old caves. Take the 400 meter zip line through the gorgeous greenery, over the river and all the way to the opening of the Dark Cave. Finish off your adventure with a swim and an obstacle course.

Spice up your travel experience by going where no average tourist has gone. The world has so many strange and gorgeous wonders yet to be discovered. Toss out the old guide book, and look up far more interesting and intriguing sites. Take in the culture, the scenery and the adventure any country has to offer. Life is short, so make your travel memories worthwhile!

Located on the southeastern tip of Florida, Miami is a bustling city known for its stunning beaches, trendy nightlife, and beautiful arks. You’ll also find plenty of great attractions if you explore the cities located just outside of Miami. If you’re planning a trip to the area, consider checking out a few of the following top cities in the Miami metro area.

Key Biscayne

The lovely Key Biscayne is a barrier island town located about 14 minutes southeast of Miami. Nestled between Crandon Park and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, Key Biscayne has a more relaxed and secluded feel. Both parks offer long stretches of sheltered beaches, self-guided nature trails through tropical forests, and the ability to explore mangroves on a kayak. Additionally, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is home to Cape Florida Light, the oldest standing structure in the area.

Coral Gables

Travel about 15 minutes southwest of Miami to find Coral Cables, nicknamed “The City Beautiful” for good reason. Here you can find the Venetian Pool. This historic public swimming pool was created in 1924 from an abandoned coral rock quarry. It holds 820,000 gallons of freshwater from artesian wells, making it the largest freshwater pool in the country. The city is also home to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and its extensive collection of rare tropical palms, flowering trees, and exotic butterflies.

Opa-locka

Take a trip to Opa-locka, located about 23 minutes northwest of Miami, and you may feel like you’ve traveled to an entirely different continent. The city was developed on an “Arabian Nights” theme, and it has the largest grouping of Moorish Revival architecture in the Western Hemisphere. As you drive down streets with names that include Ali Baba Avenue and Sultan Avenue, you’ll see buildings sporting domes, minarets, parapets, watchtowers, arches, and more.

Miami Springs

Founded by aviation legend Glenn Curtiss, Miami Springs is 18 minutes northwest of Miami and another one of the first planned communities in the state. Like its counterparts, such as Opa-locka, Miami Springs has a theme reflected in the architecture. In this case, the style was called Pueblo Revival. If you want to drive around the city and check out the Southwestern architecture, you can plan a stay at one of the hotels in Miami Springs. Don’t forget to save some time to play a game of golf at the charming Miami Springs Golf & Country Club as well.

Palmetto Bay

If you travel about 30 minutes southwest of Miami, you’ll find Palmetto Bay. The city is home to the 444-acre Deering Estate at Cutler, a historic, archaeological, and environmental preserve located on the edge of Biscayne Bay. The estate offers plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy, including guided nature hikes, tours of the historic home, butterfly walks, canoe tours, and more.

When you’re looking to explore some of the best cities and towns just outside of Miami, make sure you include a few of the above top locations on your list.

Manila, 7 May 2019 – Thanks to a booming economy, the real estate sector of several progressive cities outside of the metro are on a roll, growing remarkably well over the last few years and expected to continue soaring to new heights in the next decade or so.

More and more property developers are answering the growing demand for residential and commercial properties in Cebu, Cavite, Davao, Iloilo, Bacolod, and Pampanga as their property landscapes evolve and are expected to be at the forefront of a property development boom in the country.

Mr. Charles Ong, Chief Operating Officer of Innoland Development Corporation

A pronounced surge in demand and supply

The growing interest from local and foreign investors, as bolstered by the national government’s robust infrastructure projects in these provincial cities, attracted a surge in interest among property buyers from here and abroad.

From 2017 to 2018, Pampanga registered a whopping 873-percent increase in leads on the Lamudi platform. During the same time frame, Cavite witnessed a 298-percent increase in leads, Davao raked in 69 percent, while Cebu and Iloilo also increased by 274 and 214 percent, respectively. Page views among properties in Bacolod likewise spiked by 38 percent.

These numbers go to show that these cities are currently enjoying a shining moment in their real estate sector. In conjunction with this impressive upward trend in demand, the property supply in these cities followed suit.

Based on Lamudi listings from 2017 to 2018, Davao enjoyed a 102-percent increase in listings while Pampanga saw a 202-percent spike. Likewise, Cavite’s listings spiked by 188 percent. Cebu-based listings increased by 27 percent while Iloilo grew by 29 percent. Bacolod, however, had more property searches than the available supply during the time period, where apartment and land searches were seven (7) percent and 12 percent higher than the supply, respectively. This could mean that there is a well of opportunity for property developers in the city to answer to the growing demand that is yet to be addressed.

Average prices and a notable increase in page visits

Page visits, which likewise signify interest among property buyers, in these provincial cities also increased. From 2017 to 2018, Pampanga, Cebu, and Bacolod grew by 65 percent, 23 percent, and 38 percent respectively.

Iloilo, on the other hand, rose by 22 percent from the first quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2019.

Davao, despite being one of the country’s most competitive cities and investment hubs, remains affordable for prospective investors and home seekers. The average price of a condo property in the city is Php4,622,195, where the average price per square meter is tagged at Php 100,377.

Meanwhile, Cavite’s residential sector also maintains its relative affordability, with an average price of Php 6,372,632 for houses. The average price per square meter is Php 50,576.

Bhavna Suresh, CEO of Lamudi, moderated the media roundtable discussion. The panelists of the media roundtable were Joey Bondoc, Senior Research Manager of Colliers International Philippines; Charles Ong, Chief Operating Officer of Innoland Development Corporation; Fernando Camus, Senior Consultant of Berthaphil, Inc.; Emmanuel Rapadas, Chief Financial Officer of Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation; and Richard Tay, Business Unit Head of the Commercial Business Group of Property Company of Friends, Inc.

Most Searched Areas

The most searched for areas in Davao that property seekers searched for are Buhangin and Sasa. These were followed by Barangay 19-B, Ma-A, Talomo, Barangay 20-B, Bucana, Barangay 34-D, Matina Crossing, and Matina Aplaya.  

In Cebu, the most searched for properties were those in Cebu City, followed by those in Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue, Talisay, Consolacion, Minglanilla, and Liloan.

Bacoor, Dasmariñas, Tagaytay, General Trias, and Imus were the most searched cities in Cavite.

On the other hand, the towns of Pavia, Jaro, Oton, Guimbal, and Mandurriao generated the most interest in Iloilo.

In Pampanga, Angeles, San Fernando, Mabalacat, Arayat, Mexico, Bacolor, and Magalang.

For Bacolod, the towns of Alijis, Estefania, Mansilingan, and Tangub drew in the most interest.

House and lots dominate property types

Majority of these property seekers are interested in house and lots, although there’s also a growing interest for residential condo units. The majority also prefer to buy these types of properties compared to those who want to rent them. In Iloilo, for instance, the page views for houses were close to 62 percent among property seekers, about 52 percent when it comes to sessions, and 59 percent for leads generated, based on Lamudi’s data. The same is true for Cavite, where about 64 percent of the leads came from house searches.

The preference for house and lots, as well as lands, in these provincial cities, show that the prices of these property types in Cavite, Pampanga, Cebu, Bohol, Davao, and Iloilo are still relatively more affordable compared to those in Metro Manila. Many of those who were also searching for properties in most of these progressive provincial cities are from Metro Manila, according to Lamudi data. In Pampanga, for instance, although the number one city that searched for a property there came from Angeles City, the next three came from Quezon City, Makati, and Manila, data from the property portal shows. Pampanga’s proximity to Metro Manila has attracted quite a number of property seekers from Quezon City, Makati, and Manila who are planning to relocate in the province, live a more relaxed lifestyle and escape from the urban chaos of the metropolis while also pursuing great careers with the growing number of companies opening their offices there.

With the property sector of these thriving provincial cities on the upswing, expect their economic landscape to evolve and benefit nearby towns and municipalities as well.

If you start to need money to buy necessary goods for you and your family but cannot seem to find a way to secure the money without incurring very high debts to shady lenders, then you should look into applying for an unsecured credit card. You can use an unsecured credit card to obtain a various amount of advantages that you would not normally have including having the money you need be at your hands. There are also some aspects about having an unsecured credit card that make your life that much easier to go through.

Obtain better credit score

Having an unsecured credit card is a sure way to start your journey towards having a better credit score than before. This is because using an unsecured credit card, unlike taking out personal loans, does not leave even one mark against your credit score.

This, in turn, will make future credit checks done by any future lender, company or other entity go much smoother which is what your goal should be. Even if your credit score situation leaves a lot to be desired, you still have the chance to change it around by simply using unsecured credit cards for bad credit. This is one great way to utilize these kinds of credit cards. More importantly, it will make it easier later on to get even better credit card plans with limits that are set even higher than before and lower interest rates than ever.

Protect your assets

You might not realize this right away but using an unsecured credit card can actually protect your assets. These assets that you have, whether through investing your money into a business or buying real estate to rent out, might be in danger of being possessed by personal loan lenders whether these lenders are banks or other entities. You can use an unsecured credit card to borrow the money you need from the bank without having to risk seizure of your property at any point in the future.

Low interest rates

Unsecured credit cards have one of the lowest possible interest rates compared to borrowing money or applying to get a loan. This is great because not only can you use your credit card to buy various goods for you without having to pay as much interest, but you can actually use the credit card to get any cash you need from an ATM to be used for whatever you need, without any questions asked. Just remember that the better you get your credit score to become the lower the interest you will have on your credit card be. Maintaining good credit score will enable you to buy all of what you want and pay significantly low interest for it.

You can use unsecured credit cards to prolong the installment plans of the objects you are considering to buy. For example, if you are planning on buying a mobile phone using installments, you can use a credit card to pay all of the money at once and then pay it off at your own pace, instead of having the constant stress of weekly or monthly installments needing to be paid to the shop itself, which may not be keen on you being late on a payment. This brings us to the point that you can use an unsecured credit card to get better credit, decrease the stress of regular payment installments as well as worry less about all of your assets and the interest rate attached to the money you need to borrow.

Wanderlust On The Road by Juanderfulpinoy.com - 1M ago

Not everyone has heard of Batangas, but it’s about time that it got on the map in regards to the top places to visit. A quaint province situated on the coast in the Philippines, it is definitely one to put on your bucket list. The issue with visiting a place for the first time is that you may get a couple of opinions on what you need to do and see there. This is why we have compiled a list of the top things that must be done when you visit Batangas so that you’ve done the experience justice. We’ve broken them down into the kinds of activities that you may be interested in so that it can cater to your needs more specifically.

Dive into the Sandy Beaches

It’s probably no surprise that the first thing that will attract you to Batangas are the amazing beaches; this is the essence, as it is a coastal province. There are around 10 different beaches that you can choose to visit in Batangas, and all are simply wonderful. If you’re interested in scuba diving that there are certain beaches that provide diving classes. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned diver, Batangas water has rich waters that are exciting to explore. Most resorts in Batangas Philippines are by the beach so you won’t have any issues when setting up a place to stay. You have to be sure to visit the Calatagan Resort though, as it is situated on a beautiful white sandy beach and their cottages that are placed on stilts give you a once in a lifetime experience with the incredible view.

Climb the Majestic Mountains

Batangas doesn’t only provide sandy beaches, but gorgeous, majestic mountains as well. If you really want to experience something beautiful, then you must sign up for a hike on Mount Manabo. There are a couple more mountains as well that are great for hiking, especially if you’re a beginner. But what you cannot miss out on is a visit to the Taal volcano. This is actually one of the world’s smallest active volcanoes and is very exciting to behold. How many people do you know that can actually say they’ve been on an active volcano!

Explore a Wealth of History

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that this small province is actually quite rich when it comes to heritage and historical venues. You can visit the town of Taal, Batangas where the Spanish once colonized and there is still to this day, a lot that has been preserved from the time. There are a number of lighthouses, museums and libraries that date back quite a bit and will give you a deep insight into the history and culture of Batangas and the Philippines as whole. You also have to make it a point to take on the pilgrimage tour, which will take you on a tour of the historical churches in Batang- they are rich in architecture and history, and is really a once in a lifetime experience.

As small of a province as it may seem, and as underrated as it is, Batangas is really a place that will pull on your heartstrings and truly leave a mark. The wealth of nature and history is really quite impressive to say the least! While there’s plenty to do in Batangas, make sure that you get the options listed above because they are experiences that you would not want to miss out on.

Wanderlust On The Road by Juanderfulpinoy.com - 1M ago

HISTORY

Bacolod, nicknamed The City of Smiles is a friendly city filled with smiling faces in Western Visayas. It is the capital of the province of Negros Occidental and is the second most populous city in the Visayas after Cebu City.

Geographically, Bacolod is in the northwestern coast of the island of Negros, bounded on the north by the city of Talisay, on the east by the town of Murcia, and on the south by the city of Bago. To its west is the Guimaras Strait, which serves as a natural border to neighboring Western Visayas.

Bacolod started as a small settlement by the riverbank known as Magsungay early in the Spanish colonial period. It was not established as a town until about 1775 after the settlement was attacked by a datu, with the villagers transferring to a hilly area named Bacolod. Over the years, Bacolod was opened to agriculture and industry, inviting migration and expansion back towards the sea.

Bacolod was then declared capital of Negros Occidental in 1889 when the province of Negros was separated into two, with the other being Negros Oriental. It was then upgraded from a municipality to a city in 1938 by the 1st National Assembly of the Philippines, during the American colonial period.

POPULATION

The Bacolod of today is a highly urbanized city, with a population of about 562,000 people as of the 2015 census by the Philippine Statistics Authority, representing a 1.79 percent increase from the 2010 population of about 512,000 people. The population density was 3,500 per square kilometer.

LOCAL CULTURE

Bacolod is most known for its people’s warm nature. Bacolod is popular for its MassKara Festival, which runs through October and culminating at the fourth Sunday of the month. The festival started as a way to create a better atmosphere in Bacolod in 1980, as the city suffered from the Don Juan tragedy where a vessel collided with a tanker, leading to 750 lost lives. The masks worn during the festival helps Bacolod live up to its moniker ‘The City of Smiles,’ signifying that its people will triumph over any hardship.

The MassKara festival is now one of the major tourist attractions of the Philippines, filling the streets of Bacolod with street performances, beauty pageants, carnivals, food festivals, music concerts, and so much more.

ECONOMIC BACKGROUND

The city of Bacolod is considered as the third-fastest growing economy in the Philippines in the information technology and business process outsourcing industries. It has received recommendations from the Department of Science and Technology’s Information and Communication Technology Office and the Business Processing Association of the Philippines as the best location in the Visayas for BPO activities. Bacolod was also declared in 2013 by the DOST as a Center of Excellence for IT-business process management operations, joining a prestigious group composed of Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, and the Clark Freeport Zone.

Major names in the BPO industry have set up shop in Bacolod, including Convergys, Teleperformance, iQor, and Transcom. Showing the importance of BPO companies in Bacolod’s economy, a 2-hectare portion of the 4-hectare Paglaum Sports Complex was partitioned in 2012 for the construction of the Negros First CyberCentre, which is a provincial government-owned IT-BPO Outsourcing Hub with a Php 674 million budget.

EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK

Colliers International Philippines, in its Q1 2018 Provincial Property Market reports, also noted that Bacolod remains a preferred location for outsourcing operations, with voice BPO companies in continuous expansion while knowledge process outsourcing companies are considering the city as a potential location outside of Metro Manila. However, Colliers said that Bacolod’s talent pool would need to scale up if it wants to attract the interest of more KPO companies.

OFFICE AND COMMERCIAL SPACE

Colliers expects most office demand in Bacolod until 2020 to come from call centers, as well as KPO firms that provide financial technology, software engineering, and health information management services. The research firm expects office supply in the city to reach 128,500 sq.m. by 2020, which is a 20 percent increase compared to supply in 2017, and also forecasts vacancy maintaining at 4 percent to 5 percent per year to 2020.

Average office rental rates in Bacolod meanwhile is expected to increase by about 2% to 4% annually over the next few years, due to the sustained demand from both BPO and traditional companies.

REAL ESTATE OVERVIEW

The City of Smiles seems to be on a roll. Thanks to a booming economy, Bacolod’s real estate sector has been progressing remarkably well over the last few years and is expected to continue soaring to new heights in the next few years. With more and more property developers answering the growing demand for residential and commercial properties in and around Bacolod, the real estate landscape of Negros Occidental’s crown jewel is expected to evolve and be at the forefront of a property development boom in the Visayas.

Growth in property interest

According to data culled by Lamudi, the Philippines’ premier real estate platform, since the first semester of 2016, there has been an increasing trend among property seekers looking for potential homes in Bacolod all the way to the second semester of 2018. The average growth rate between 2016 and 2017 was somewhere between 14 percent and 15 percent, However, this average figure grew to 21.9 percent in 2018, a reflection of the increasing interest among property seekers looking for properties in the City of Smiles.

Key areas for real estate activity

Data from Lamudi show that the last quarter of 2018 had the highest volume of searches on residential properties in Bacolod. Comparing this period to 2017’s fourth quarter, there was a 50 percent increase in page views. 

Similarly, in both 2017 and 2018, the most searched for areas in Bacolod among property seekers were those in Alijis, Estefania, Mansilingan, Tangub, Bata, Mandalagan, and Villamonte, where Megaworld’s The Upper East is located.
