SIARGAO TRAVEL GUIDE 2018 | 33 Things to Do on Siargao Island

EDIT (April 2017): Here is your most updated Siargao travel guide! I came back to Siargao last February 2017 (my fourth visit), this time around with Tobias (in case you’re new here, Tobias is my beloved giant 😀 ). We did a lot of new things on the island. And Siargao, as a tourist destination, has rebranded itself. Six years ago, Siargao Island had this laidback and backpacker feel. Most of its shores were covered with towering coconut trees. Now, fancy hotels eat up a good amount of space. Restaurants, from gourmet French to Mexican, are everywhere too! I got […]

This is entry started with a little narrative, which I encouraged you to read. If you are impatient to read the travel guide, jump to the bottom of this entry. Oh yeah, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram. Some said the first first can make you either want to come back or forget the place altogether. But the first, the gloomy first visit was the reason I […]

THAILAND BUDGET TRAVEL GUIDE | Itinerary, Budget, and Accommodation

In my  five-week trip across five ASEAN countries, the Thailand leg was the most comfortable. Perhaps because I was traveling with Tobi. The discomforts a solo traveler had to endure were replaced with the comforts of a pampered traveling couple. Another reason is the food: Thai food is the closest to the rich taste of home, is cheap, and is photographable. Plus, our bus trips were well-planned, and going around was much easier because we rented a scooter. This 9-day itinerary covers Bangkok (3 nights), Chiang Mai (2 nights), and Chiang Rai (3 nights). On our last day in Thailand, we […]
