Snippets of Tourist Spots (Bicol and Leyte)

If you want to see history at it's finest look no further, the Visayas Region south of Manila offers a wide range of tourist destination to fit everyone's taste.

What's in here:

Two active volcanoes

1) Mayon Volcano, popularly known as the Perfect Cone. Mayon Volcano is an active volcano in the Philippines on the island of Luzon, in the province of Albay in the Bicol Region. Its almost perfectly-shaped cone is considered by some to be the Philippine equivalent of Mount Fuji in Japan. 15 kilometres to the southeast of the volcano is Legazpi City. Mayon is classified by volcanologists as a stratovolcano.

Fun in the Sun at Subic

If you want a quick get-away from the busy Manila for a week-end go no further, Olonggapo, Subic in Zambales is just a two hour (ooops make it 40 minutes, with the new Subic, Pampanga Expressway!) drive and there are a wide-range of beaches and resorts you can choose from to relax.

We were suppose to go to White Rock, but we arrived at a peak time it seems because a three bus full loads of people just checked-in when we went there. But for other resort options you can go at this site:

So we had not choice but go somewhere else where we will be accomodated and the beachfront is nice. Welcome to Ocean View Park, its closer than White Rock and just a couple minutes after you leaving the Subic, Clark Freezone property.

Solo Trip in Hong Kong

My first out-of-the-country trip ALONE and Hong Kong is the perfect place to be!

No smoking is imposed strictly in this country!
A diverse but dynamic environment, mountainside on the left and highrise building on the right. Amazing!
Very safe and clean city streets to walk alone.
Great place for sight-seeing, shopping and relax!

A Virgin Resort in Easter Samar, Philippines

Get a plane from Manila to Tacloban and hire a van that will take you to Eastern Samar from the airport. There is no airport in Samar. Vans are reasonably priced just tell them if you want to hire them for drop-off and pick-up only or for a couple of days. A reasonable price is P2,000 a day, the tip is up to you.

You need your own automobile to go in this resort and any other resort here in Samar you want to go to, there are no cabs and you don't want to squeeze yourself in the public transport.

There are lots of things you can do and enjoy in this beautiful resort (I wish I didn't have memory gap so I could remember the name, but you can ask for the Samar tourist authority, they know it so well!) you can go kayaking, jetski (yes they have jetski!), boating, swim, etc. anything you can think of to do in a beach resort. They have nice rooms and villas too!

Trip To Taal Volcano, Philippines

Why go to Taal Volcano?
1) If you want to be in an island on a lake on an island in a lake on an island on an ocean (Pacific Ocean)?
2) If you want to see the smallest active volcano in the world?
3) If you want to get up close to one of the 16 Decade Volcanoes in the world?

Taal is located at Talisay, Batangas just 2 hours away from the busy Manila so you can go there for a weekend get-away and stay in one of the cozy hotels and lodges in Tagaytay overlooking the beautiful volcano.
