Hotel Review: Respite in Roxas President's Inn, Capiz

I was on the last few days of my trip around Panay, that took me to Boracay, Antique, and Capiz (my last stop). I was looking for a homey and relaxing place to stay as I explored Roxas City, I then stumbled upon Roxas President's Inn as I searched online for a place to stay.

Hotel Review: Relaxing in Bale Mi Hotel

I have been to some of the lesser known provinces in the Philippines, but have yet to set foot on the white sand beach of Boracay. For some reason I kept on putting my trip to Boracay on hold, but this time around I've decided to visit the most popular tourist destination in the country. For my first two nights in Boracay, Bale Mi Hotel next to Bolabog Beach hosted me for 2 nights.

Mixing the Old & New in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is an interesting city north of the capital Bangkok. It has all of the makings of a cosmopolitan city, but manages to retain its old soul. I've heard good things about Chiang Mai, so I was aching to experience this city during my month long trip from Southern to Northern Thailand.

The Underground River Experience

During my first few trips to Palawan, I immediately went to either Coron or El Nido up north. Exploring the attractions near Puerto Prinsesa were only an afterthought. I finally had the chance to visit one of Palawan's premier tourist attractions, the Underground River.

Meeting the Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand

During my day trip to Chiang Rai, I had the opportunity to meet some of the hill tribes of Thailand. The journey was long, but worth the trip.


I've read a couple of things about the tourist villages in northern Thailand, but I had to see the place myself to get a clearer picture of things. I didn't want to pass judgement, I wanted to maintain an open mind as to why these tribes remain in these fabricated villages, specifically for tourists.
