This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.




Taal Batangas has so much to offer — from beaches, Batangueño culinary, heritage towns, artisan shops, bed and breakfast to full accommodation. An estimate of 3-4hour drive from Manila, it is a convenient, vacation-friendly tourist spot to anyone who wants culture immersion or just unwind in one of Batangas known beaches. While at it, Abby’s Garden Resort accommodation is where you can spend a day or two while doing all of that discoveries within the area.

Best Things to do in Hong Kong

Travel Guide: Travel essentials, tips, itinerary and budgets when planning a trip to Hong Kong

They say you cannot visit all the hot spots in Hong Kong in one visit, the key here is to prioritize the destination that motivates you from food hunting, shopping and strolling. It involves a lot of WALKING! So brace yourself and wear comfortable clothing and shoes.  What’s nice about there – people are fast-paced, the escalators are fast and the transportation from city bus to MTR are super fast and efficient. The food hubs at night are excitingly busy,  the shopping districts are open until midnight. Arm yourself with the moolah and you’re ready to hit the HK culture! Best things to do in Hong Kong.

Sandbar is a diving site and frequently host seasonal water sport activities. The place was absolute haven, an island between sea shores. From our island hopping, Sandbar was the last stop. I wanted to go back around and spend more time on this place, tourist and locals who wanted to check out the sandbar, may have to pay entrance fee if you are not checked-in, we did not pay the entrance because we dined-in for a while.

April 2012. Mindoro Island is always been a sure-fire destination having a strategic location, bound from island to island – it’s an easy access for travelers and adventurers. Standing next to Batangas Pier, there’s a lot of areas to explore and re-visit. I disagreed to some hear says that Puerto Galera has lost its luster. We’ve been in Puerto Galera and some areas in Mindoro since way back 2000. There are actually new resorts that was developed why local and foreign tourists keep  coming back.
