Chill out at The Circle Hostel, La Union | Travel Up

Chill out at The Circle Hostel, La Union | Travel Up | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

It’s always refreshing to stay in a place that makes you feel like a kid again. A place where you can find wooden treehouses and swings instead of the usual cold steel, leather couches and glass windows in most hotels. A place where anyone can take a nap in a hammock any time you want and the only walls dividing your bunk bed from your neighbors’ are see-through mosquito nets

Dave ( Silverbackpacker )'s insight:

It seems that the Circle Hostel is one of " the in " places to chill out and meet other backpackers.

I was already aware that the Vigan tour could really be cheaper by taking tricycle rides which is most of the time could even be cheaper that the Kalesa Tours - but ofcourse Kalesa or carriage tour has its different glam that cost the additional). Kalesa tours usually cost around Php800.00 that time

5 Weird Pinoy Fiestas | Travel Up

5 Weird Pinoy Fiestas | Travel Up | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Most festivals in the Philippines take inspiration from a distinct product or industry of the town. This product usually dictates the theme for the activities, decor and street-dancing costumes, which seem to be a staple of every Pinoy fiesta. In the official Tourism AVP, it’s pointed out that, “we have rice fiestas, flower fiestas, giant fiestas, mask fiestas. We have one every day of the year.

Calaguas: Reality Bites | Echoserang Lakwatsera | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

I have this post card-ish image of Calaguas in my head - a long stretch of fine, powdery white sands accentuated with luscious greeneries and clear cerulean waters that seemingly entice and cajole you to take a plunge. In my mind it was perfect - it was the perfect setting to submerge my enemies’ heads into the ocean until they flail and drown into their miserable deaths.
