Tottori is an under-the-radar destination in Japan, about 6 hours from Tokyo and 3.5 hours from Osaka, known for Detective Conan, Tottori Sand Dunes and Sand Castle Museum, and Uradome Coast. If are flying from the Philippines or Southeast Asia, I suggest flying to Osaka instead since it is nearer and cheaper. But, if you are already in Tokyo, you …

I’m not a fan of big cities, but when I set foot in Tokyo – one of the world’s largest cities – I knew he’s a cut above the rest. This booming capital of Japan is peppered with towering skyscrapers as if grasping into the future, blinding neon lights and jaw-dropping sci-fi streets. I find Tokyo bold, bright, innovative and …

It never occurred to me that I would fall for Vietnam.  Back then, I remember traveling here because it is pretty close to Cambodia and I only wanted to get my passport stamped. Looking back, I am not proud of it. Now Vietnam is one of my favorite countries when backpacking in Southeast Asia.  This blog though will focus more …

Applying for a visa can be nerve-racking. I remember a few years ago, an airline offered me a roundtrip ticket to Japan, but I never got to use it. The next year, another airline invited me to an all-expense paid trip to Nagoya in Japan, but I wasn’t available. I delayed my dream to travel to Japan because I was …

Name the Philippine’s stunning beaches, and Negros Occidental province will most likely go unnoticed. Unknown to many tourists, this bountiful province is oozing with some of the most Instagram-worthy islands. Take for example Lakawon Island, an emerging destination in Cadiz that boasts of powdery cream sand and denim blue water. If you’re looking for a beach near Bacolod, this 16 …

Remnants of it glorious past loom over Florence, Italy. Everywhere I turn, there is something worth seeing. I bet even a week-long stay here is not enough to fully cover its Renaissance architectures and arts, and glorious  food and wine. That is why, honestly, I find it hard to round up the top things to do in Florence, Italy. Interestingly, …

Undeniably, nothing can encompass nature’s magical prowess, and Manjuyod Sandbar is one perfect testament to that.  Devoid of luxury trappings, even coconut trees are nowhere in sight, Manjuyod Sandbar is like a white gem that emerges from the seafloor when the tide recedes.   Although geographically located in Manjuyod, Negros Oriental, the usual jump-off point is the municipality of Bais. …

Nagoya is booming. Much of the buzz in Japan’s 4th largest city is due to the fact that it is home to some of the world’s biggest automobile companies such as Toyota, Mitsubishi and Honda. These companies helped shaped Nagoya’s landscape. Perhaps because of its industrial core, most tourists traveling to Japan hightail Nagoya for its more famous neighbors like …

I started traveling wearing slippers, and for the past few years, I’ve been sporting my flipflops on the road. I like wearing women’s slippers during my trips because I find it comfortable and it doesn’t take a lot of space in my bag. My travel slippers is a huge part of my journeys, so whenever it’s time to say goodbye …

Winding down the long slope in Cameron Highlands, we passed by a sea of tea plantations. Located in Pahang, this place is Malaysia’s most expansive hill station named after William Cameron, a British colonial government surveyor who went on a mapping expedition here back in 1885.  Today, Cameron Highlands is a popular tourist destination in Malaysia for locals and foreign tourists alike …
