I've been living in Metro Manila for the past 7 years and it's a shame to admit that I haven't been to Quezon City Memorial Circle -- until today. I've been too busy thinking about my next out-of-town destinations and arranging trips ahead. Too anxious to get my butt off the office and on a plane. Too ambitious to plan monthly travels. Too preoccupied reading travel blogs and websites. But this day, I thought of going to the Circle. Strange. I am not the let's-go-out-now-because-i-just-feel-like-it type. So when I asked Toto to come with me, he gave me a puzzled look. Probably he was thinking, "No freaking way is this happening."
We visited Puerto Princesa at a time when Mayor Hagedorn's team was rigorously campaigning for the Underground River to be included in the New 7 Wonders of the World list. Posters were all around the city, showing instructions on how to vote for PPUR through SMS and through the Internet. Everything was all good - except for the fact that Hagedorn's face was 10x bigger than everything else that was written on the posters XD But yeah, it's how Philippine politics works.
Anyway, we were very excited to see this natural wonder and to know if Puerto Princesa would topple Coron in the top spot of our places-to-see list. More after the jump.
Would you buy a 3D/2N Puerto Princesa trip for 2pax with airfare, hotel accommodation and island hopping tour for P9,900.00? I did. I joined the bandwagon and clicked the "buy this deal" button in the MetroDeal website. Hey! That's just P4,950/pax for an all-in package! But did we really save P6,100.00 as advertised on their site? More after the jump.
It has been almost 3 years since I visited this paradise but I can still clearly remember how much we enjoyed this beautiful, ravishing, extraordinary, perfect, stunning, lovely, magnificent, exquisite place named Coron. Too many good words to describe it, seriously. After college graduation, my friends and I initially wanted to go to Hong Kong to celebrate before we all become "professional" citizens of the world. But due to the bird flu scare, we were forced to find another place to visit. My friend, Maan, insisted that we go visit Coron. We wanted to go out of the country but the heavens probably wanted us to explore more of the Philippines before we head somewhere else. This 5D/4N Coron trip turned out to be my best trip yet.

This is a sample travel plan for a 2D/1N trip to San Juan, La Union for 4pax. Of course you can choose to not do some of the activities here like surfing on the second day. You may also want to stay in a different hotel. Check out my previous post for other hotels' contact information and room rates.
Whether you're planning to spend the next long weekend or the entire week or even the whole month in San Juan, La Union, there will always be good accommodations that will surely fit your needs. This post is my compilation of resorts and inns that offer rooms for all kinds of travelers - from the budget-conscious to the indulgent type. Read more after the jump.
