Step-off the grid in Nagsasa Cove Zambales, a rough-hewn cove where crystal-clear waters, mist-filled mountains and jungles beckon the wild at heart.  I’ve often wondered what it looks like.  I’ve visited its more famous neighbor – Anawangin Cove, but I’ve never set foot yet in Nagsasa beach, until recently.  And it’s worth the wait…the swirling mix of aquamarine water, the …

BATANES is a scene of changing moods, sometimes balmy, sometimes placid and other times ominous.  But its postcard-worthy topography and the genuine hospitality of its people – the Ivatans, make it such a tourist-friendly place. From mighty stone houses blanketed by the richness of Ivatan culture, to towering sentinels standing on strikingly gorgeous hills pounded by incessant waves, Batanes tick …

Anawangin Cove in Zambales has crescent-shaped beach where grayish, volcanic sand and cerulean water blend majestically.  Here, cliffs rise hundreds of feet from the ocean floor to Agoho-fringed peaks that were sprinkled by nature from the last eruption of the nearby Mt.Pinatubo. I first visited Anawangin Island back in 2009, it’s one of the first beaches in the Philippines that …

Mui Ne is one of my favorite destinations in Vietnam, its stunning topography is a testament to the magical prowess of nature. I visited it twice because I felt like I was on a rush the first time I visited in 2012, so when I went back to Vietnam, since it was winter in the northern part, I detoured to …

The Pinay Solo Backpacker by Thepinay Solobackpacker - 2M ago

Osmeña Peak, the highest mountain in Cebu is a cluster of green jagged hills like a deformed twin of Chocolate Hills of Bohol  hugging the shorelines of Badian. This part of Dalaguete is reminiscent of Benguet. A serene town with low temperatures dotted with pine trees. A remote village inhabited mostly by vegetable farmers sporting their jackets, boots and jeans. And you …

We were in a silent, uncharted outskirt of Anda in Bohol.   Before us is a somewhat endless, muddy, palm-fringed road that faded away to a flickering horizon.  We hear nothing but the sound of cold breezes brushing against the leaves of the trees. Suddenly, a middle-aged man, wearing a wide grin on his face, emerged out of nowhere. He already …

With the recent approval of the  Taiwan visa-free entry for Filipinos  , the country will surely attract more Pinoy tourists. For many of us, Taiwan is Taipei, known for its rich economy and but a large part of the country remains uncharted. Taiwan will surprise you with bountiful pastoral land, verdurous and cloud-capped mountains, volcanically-formed islands and limestone cliffs plunge hundreds …

Tokyo exudes with timeless appeal, that’s why it is no surprise that the 2017 edition of Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards, Tokyo topped the list of the World’s Best Cities for 2017. This lively capital of Japan is more than just the towering skyscrapers, blinding neon-lights, giant video screens and surreal sci-fi streets. It’s a massive city packed with character and …
