Travel Philippines - Your Choices for Tour Destination Spots and Attractions

If you want to travel Philippines by foot, by plane, by boat or by our popular old school yet enjoyable jeepney, you must be up for an exciting destination. Known for its beautiful resorts and travel places in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, the country is truly a diversity in terms of natural beauty.

This is what it is about Philippines. While some would definitely enjoy a horseback ride or a carabao cart drive to the forest, a sure first stop over is the official website of the Department of Tourism - for people looking to visit our country.

It is the home of countless tourist spots and destinations, calendar of events of festivals, information on planning a trip, selecting a destination, top things to do, immigration issues, people, history, culture, climate, flight information and more.

You do this is of course, after you already came up with a plan back from where you came from in your country. It is good to let you know though that there is a vast array of choices to find out and see what Pilipinas had to offer to travelers from a foreign land looking to have fun and enjoy nature at its best twined with relaxing quiet travel places that are jam packed with the serenity. It has always been that which one is surely looking for in a tourist destination and we know you deserve to get it. If you are up for one, allow us 3 (Sam, Ana and TJ) to take you to our journey as we showcase your choices and options for a complete package travel Philippines tour.

Itinerary Samples Tour Packages Promo and Where to Stay

An important part of your travel Philippines intention is preparing a list of itinerary doable tasks for time management as well as tour packages and promo offers so you can get your paradise travel at its cheapest available.

If you are lucky, we might be able to provide just a specific itinerary list sample for the place you wanted to visit in the Philippines or a travel agency to book your flight and stay especially if you are coming from another country.

Be sure you know your purpose. You can either just enjoy our resorts and beaches, come and retire to the Philippines, meet single Filipina (or perhaps one of the sweet and loving Cebu girls)


If you are Pinoy, we believe that for as long as it is your first time to see a beautiful tourist spot that you are still going to need an itinerary guide. Allow us to help you with our own list which will include places to visit, top 10 things to do and top 10 food you shouldn't miss in the place.

Tours and Promo

Nah! Our family believes that the best things in life are FREE but if you are to travel Philippines, you have to think of spending just the right peso for anything that's worth your pocket. Put in mind that there is probably nothing cheaper than knowing where to go, preparing for it, packing the right stuff and getting accommodated with the right places from dining and food to eat, hotel to stay, tours to buy, cheap flights to book and best of all talking to the right people. The 3 of us would love and be glad to provide you just what you need with those using this website.

Your advantage? We talk, speak and know our way in the Philippines! (Well of course that is apart from us being honest, courteous, happy and loving people) Nothing more, nothing less. We're not Filipino tour guides but if you need one, we'd be happy to escort you around and accompany you. We don't charge anything for it so be courteous to ask 1 month in advance so we can prepare. We have our jobs too like any ordinary people looking to live and fend for their needs as humans. One more thing. We do not charge any fee but in return, YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR OUR ACCOMMODATION, FOOD, TRANSPORTATION and EVERYTHING ELSE and MOST IMPORTANTLY, PROMISE TO TREAT US LIKE PEOPLE by signing a simple humanitarian contract. We promise you'll enjoy your trip and need to travel Philippines. You'll be back for sure.

Booking for Stay

Staying at the right place is always part of a hassle-free, carefree, happy trip to a nice paradise like the Philippines. Traveling to an absolutely foreign land will sometimes make you hesitant because of simple problems like not knowing where to stay best or look for a hotel or any other accommodation available in a tourist spot or place you want to visit. We have so many options from coastline beaches, nature parks and marine sanctuary viewing by diving so be prepared.

Whether you are Pinoy or foreigner alien to our land looking to travel Philippines, we surely have a place for your booking stay. Although we cannot always promise you the greatest stay accommodation in your life, you can always rely on our judgement and experience as told. We may not give 100% guarantee because we are not the people running the hotel and booking-for-stay industry but we will always do our best to give honest hotel reviews based on actual experience and how we felt while staying, dining and celebrating in them.

Our family have been and seen some of the best hotels in Manila as well as some popular tourist destinations like Boracay, Cebu, Palawan, Puerto Princesa and Bohol and if you'd allow us, we will tell a story beyond what online reviews reveal to aspiring tourists looking to travel Philippines so hop on.
