We love travel and adventure. We also like to keep our expenses down (who doesn’t anyway) so we often travel on a shoestring. But while budget travel, especially in the Philippines, has been and will always be popular, adventure travel involving exploration of remote, exotic and even possibly dangerous destinations is rapidly becoming popular as well. The Philippines and the rest of Asia are not wanting in terms of adventure travel destinations – as we have discovered in our trips to these places.
Not all of the tourist attractions featured here are recommendable for budget travel. However, there are some places worth the visit even if one has to shell out a little more cash. We got to visit the non-Philippine destinations here if only for the nature of our previous work but we thought we’d share our adventures in these places as well. So join us as we feature different tourist attractions in the Philippines and beyond, travel culinary adventures, some travel tips and various reflections on our encounters with nature and different cultures.
Biliran, Calbayog and Catbalogan cities in Samar. Such is this city’s strategic location in the region.
Coron Island is most famous for its inland lakes and lagoons including Kayangan Lake, Barracuda Lake and the Twin Lagoons. It has more to offer, however, namely white sand beaches and several excellent spots for snorkeling and diving. In a previous visit here in 2002, we were simply overwhelmed by the beauty of its underwater marine life. More than ten years later we would be delighted that much of this beauty has remained intact.
