The Philippines is blessed with many beautiful places to explore and it is difficult to pick a favourite as each location has its own unique appeal. However, there are certain places that we do hear about from other travellers but they are not mentioned in travel itineraries as frequently as other places.
There are places around the country that only a few have gone to and they end up with wonderful memories from their trip. Here are 5 locations that are not in the popular list of travel destinations in the country but are worth a spot in your travel bucket list.
Climbing Mt. Pulag was my first joiner experience. A joiner is when an individual or group organises a tour that a fixed number of people can join for a fee. The fee usually includes meals as well as the transportation expenses and the services of a travel guide. I don’t consider myself the sociable type but when a workmate, who is also a friend, invited me to join the trip with her friends, I decided to give it a try and I enjoyed the whole experience.
As a first timer, I did my best to prepare for the climb. The climb was scheduled for February, the time of Hanging Amihan, so I was trying to figure out how to survive in such cold weather. Here are some of the things I did to get ready for my first mountain climb.
You are going on a road trip. You are excited. You made the plan to have best road trip ever. But before you leave for your adventure, do remember that there are certain things that you need to bring to ensure that your road trip will be a success.
Before September 11, 2001, going through airport security was just a breeze. All you needed to do was to pass through a metal detector. All that changed after that gruesome act of terror that brought down the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York on 9-11.
Today, seeing long lines at the airport security is common. To facilitate your passing through airport security, you need to know what are the things that you can and cannot pack in your carry on baggage.
It is normal to be scared when it is your first time flying. For some, it is because of their fear of heights. However, for most people it is simply because of the fear of the unknown. Many of us do get nervous each time we see ourselves in a new environment or an unfamiliar situation. We feel helpless not knowing what to expect next. The best approach to minimize your fear is to know what to expect.
You have finally decided that you want to travel solo. You can’t wait to have a taste of that much needed sense of freedom and all the benefits of traveling solo has to offer. No need to worry about your travelling companion’s preferences and to adjust to someone else’s timetable. But before you pack your bags for your travel destination, there are things that you should take into consideration before you get all excited.
Traveling out of the country? What you wear when you travel is an important factor in traveling. Although often overlooked, there is such a thing as an appropriate attire when traveling especially if you are going international. It is best that you do your research first on what is considered appropriate or not in your country of destination. Although comfort should always be a priority, it should never be an excuse to look sloppy. Your best bet is to come up with an outfit that is comfortable yet smart and stylish at the same time.
Whenever we travel, we inevitably leave trash behind. Trash that often ends up in our oceans, polluting our waterways, and killing marine life. We can do our part in lessening the environmental impact we have each time we set foot in a different destination.
Hong Kong is not just an ordinary city. It is a fusion of two worlds with the territory’s Chinese roots mixed with the influences of more than one hundred fifty years of British colonization. This East meets West culture is quite evident in the city’s food, architecture, tradition and fashion.
