My Favorite Destinations in Southeast Asia

By On July 11, 2021

Southeast Asia is the region I was able to travel around in for a month or so. It kick started my wanderlust. I remember my first trip to Bangkok several years ago. My experiences there led me to the conclusion that I wanted to travel as much as possible. Being from the Philippines also made traveling around the region possible and easy (Filipino passport holders don't need a visa to visit countries in Southeast Asia).

Here's a list of my favorite places in Southeast Asia (excluding my home country the Philippines) in no particular order.

My Favorite Destinations in the Philippines

By On June 27, 2021

I've been to more than half of the provinces in the Philippines. I've enjoyed my own country's beautiful beaches, lagoons, mountains and other natural attractions. I have a few favorite places I wouldn't mind returning to (and I have returned to a few times).

Future Travel Plans (International)

By On April 03, 2021

The global pandemic has put leisure travel on hold for many people (including myself). I haven't gone anywhere for more than a year now. I got a new full-time job because freelance work dried up and income became unstable. However, despite all this I still plan to travel in the future.

Here's a short list of places I want to visit in the future when at least a semblance of normal returns.

Coron Tourism Requirements for the New Normal

Many of us are still wary of traveling because of the potential health consequences created by the pandemic. However, after several months, some provinces are ready to open their doors for tourists as long as they submit certain requirements. Coron is one of those places that are ready to accept visitors.

Siargao Tourism Requirements for the New Normal

By On January 18, 2021

The pandemic has led to lockdowns all over the world. However, as the months went by, countries can't stay closed forever for a number of reasons. Some of the provinces have re-opened to domestic tourists looking for a short trip. Siargao is one of the places that have re-opened.

Dining Out at UNWND Cafe and WYP

By On December 27, 2020

The pandemic has made it difficult to enjoy some of the things we have grown accustomed to doing such as dining and hanging out. Rules have relaxed and people are allowed to go out, eat out and hang out as long as establishments (and guests/diners) follow health protocols. Just to break my routine the last several months, I made my way to a newly opened hostel and restaurant in Poblacion, Makati.
