Romblon | Cresta de Gallo: A Beautiful and Remote Island | Pinoy Wandering Boy | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

The island is also attractive to various fishermen, both local and pirates because of its rich marine life. There had been various incidents of illegal fishing done on the waters around Cresta de Gallo. Fortunately, such an activity is no longer as rampant as it had been a few year back.

Chasing Philippines: Finding Magalawa: Your Do-It-Yourself Travel Guide

Chasing Philippines: Finding Magalawa: Your Do-It-Yourself Travel Guide | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

I have learned about Magalawa Island 2 years ago (again because of playing with Google Earth). Two years ago, I searched about getting there and total expense will just be around nearly Php1000.00. I got too excited about the island since it's like what most average working individuals would say a "pasok-sa-banga" budget trip

Backpacking Pilipinas: Children on the Road

Backpacking Pilipinas: Children on the Road | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

In my years of going around the Philippines, I had met quite a bunch of interesting people – people I had become friends with, people I had learned lessons from, people who had left an impact in my life. But my favorite will always be my encounters with children while on the road. The fleeting moment when I see them in their most natural demeanor, the time I start engaging then in a small talk, the time they start romancing my camera, and the quick goodbyes. From these short meet- ups, they would usually leave behind profound and very heart-warming photos – the kind of travel photos that never fail to make me smile whenever I do a trip down memory lane

Fiesta Fervor: Albay’s Magayon Festival 2012 | Travel Up

Fiesta Fervor: Albay’s Magayon Festival 2012 | Travel Up | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Fiestas in the Philippines are a chaos of colors, costumes, confetti and circus tricks. For the jaded, they all start to look the same. But there’s still something about the rhythmic drum beats that fill the air, the complicated choreography, the lighting-quick costume changes, the traditional music segueing into popular dance tunes, and the smiles on the faces of dancers during provincial fiestas that I still find fascinating.

Motorcycling from Naga to Mayon | Travel Up | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

The most direct route from Naga to Legazpi is the Pan-Philippine Highway, which is about a 1.5-2 hr drive. We decided to take the longer, more scenic route through the Tiwi-Sangay road, which faces the Lagonoy Gulf, and then take the highway going back home.

El Nido, the Philippines for Less than $25 per Day | eTramping.comeTramping.com | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

The Philippines is a stunning archipelago consisting of over 7000 islands! With so much to see and do here, it makes sense to fly between islands, rather than taking a boat everywhere. It sounds expensive but with so many discount airlines and flights in this country, you can find flights for the same price as ferries!

One of our favourite destinations in the Philippines is tiny El Nido on the island of Palawan

Manila Chinese Cemetery - Luxurious Compound for the Dead | Pinoy Wandering Boy

Manila Chinese Cemetery - Luxurious Compound for the Dead | Pinoy Wandering Boy | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Contrary to what I have initially thought, the cemetery isn't off-limits to people who are not Chinese. Christians and Chinese Buddhists are in fact welcome here, assuming they want to be buried here, when they're dead of course. This explains the tombs that are pre-dominantly Catholic in architectural designs. Mormon and Protestant tombs can also be spotted in the area.
