Five Reasons why Traveloka App is my Newest Travel Buddy


We are currently on a remote island in the southern part of Cambodia when we checked the last leg of our two-month backpacking trip. We then realized that Philippine passport holders could stay visa-free to Vietnam only for 21 days, our flights in and out of the country revealed that we will be staying for 23 days, big problem.

7 Unspoiled Beaches in the Philippines You Probably Haven’t Heard Of


Filipinos and tourists alike are always on the hunt for the hottest (pun intended!) beach destinations in the Philippines. Back in the 1950s, a pair of German tourists re-popularized Matabungkay and put the place back on the Philippine map. In late 1970s, everyone went to Puerto Galera after being declared by UNESCO as a protected sanctuary. And after the millennium, all conversations include Anawangin and how everyone was dying to visit the place after Mount Pinatubo Eruption.
