Why Go Backpacking in the Philippines?

During my movements abroad on pit stops at various hostels, I see other travelers lingering at the common area looking at the map of the country we’re in – and scanning collectively, the map of South East Asia. These are the times when everyone’s conversation touches no other topic but travel. Once the discussion turns into “where are you from?” and I tell them I am from the Philippines, most would give me a look as if ours isn’t part of the Far East. A very few brightens up their faces and would swear at the splendor of Boracay, Bohol and mention a couple of places in Palawan that stood out in their mind.

Autumn Breaks at the UNESCO World Heritage Village of Shirakawa-go

With a couple of mornings already under my belt, my Japan experience continues to defy my expectations. Imagining to be greeted by towering skyscrapers that dots the skylines of Tokyo and other cities in this country of the rising sun, our jaunt so far, impresses me with endless postcard-like countryside scenery. Directing my gaze outside our bus window, I see the gleaming landscape in the process of changing hues and colors as the lush forests from the distance starts to adapt to the incoming autumn season. As a newbie traveler in Japan, I am also experiencing for the first time the forthcoming fall season.

Brilliant Ways to Travel Cheap

Take it from these masters of the road, 2016 is your year to travel  

Another year has come to pass and for most of us it was 365 days of backbreaking work and then some. While we look at it as a badge of honor in helping the country move forward, we also deserve that time off to indulge in a bit of travel. Doing so doesn’t necessarily mean burning all our hard earned money in one trip to the beach or some exotic location somewhere. If planned properly and guided accordingly, we could stretch our meager budget and still enjoy a memorable experience on the road. As the old adage says “There’s nothing travel cannot fix.” It is high time to recharge yourself in preparation for the challenges of the coming year. So start plotting your vacation leaves and be open to the idea of exploring new cultures, tasting new delicacies, meeting new people, and walking unfamiliar streets. But before that, read up on what these travel bloggers have to dish as they share some amazing ways to travel on a string budget.
