Although Vietnam has been known for its bustling islands and beaches, Vietnam also has a colorful history which shouldn’t be so easily forgotten. Before you book your trip to Vietnam, make sure you have the most updated information for what requirements you may need in order to get your Vietnam visa.

The warm summers and mild winters in Vietnam draw many travelers each year. Vietnam has many tourist attractions perfect for those who love leisure, agriculture, shopping, sightseeing and a rich history to keep them entertained.

50 years have passed since the start of the Vietnam War and Vietnam has made a complete transformation since that time. Once regarded as the poorest country in Asia, Vietnam has become one of the fastest growing nations with its economy and innovations. With some 90 million inhabitants populating Vietnam, the country is quite bustling with high-rise buildings, high-tech IT inventions and tourism that grows by the millions each year. Vietnam also welcomed its very first stock exchange in the year 2000, which reflects its status as an up and coming industrialized country.

Kawayan Kitchen Subic Jest Camp

We emerged from the forest of Subic Bay, trying to apply (and failing hard) the survival tips given by the Aeta guides as a prelude to JEST Camp’s Hunger Games. Our stomachs on the other hand have a different Hunger Games in mind, what it wanted was lunch, a pretty heavy one. Good thing JEST Camp has prepared just the right one for us, a boodle fight at their Kawayan Kitchen.

Kawayan Kitchen Subic Jest Camp

During our two-day stay at Subic’s JEST Camp, most of our meals were cooked using buho or bamboos. The camp practices what it preaches, almost all of dishes, including our rice, were prepared using the method the Aetas demonstrated to us the first day we arrived.

JEST Camp and Magaul Bird Park Subic

Logs and kindling were piled and hotdogs with soft marshmallows were skewered on thin bamboo sticks. Twilight has set in a few hundred feet above Subic Bay. From a frame of tree branches, we can clearly see the city below, alive and twinkling; its electric hues illuminating the darkening sky, reflecting on the dark bay. With a flash of flint, our bonfire whooped into existence. We forgot about the electric lights as we basked at the glow of the fire, mesmerized with its crackling intensity, ready with our hotdogs, stories and bottles of beer.

Someone said it true to travel is to live. Travel brings not just peace in our own life but also gives immense happiness. Moreover, who doesn’t wants to travel after working hard all day long; everyone deserves a small break in their life. But when it comes to travel to other countries some people gets dicey over the monetary issue. Everyone has hard earned money and spending it without thinking is obviously a stupid task.

In my last travel, when I was supposedly giving all my money just to book a travel deal, a friend of mine showed me something to which my eye couldn’t believe it for few seconds. A discounted site for travels, can you believe that? Oh my god!! Discounted coupons on Travels deals at Groupon, not believing see it yourself.


When I came to know about, I was flying high. It is a blessing for all the persons who love to travel. This is a dream come true for a traveler, you know what I mean?


I was planning for a trip to Manila and then only I found a deal of 67% off on Golden Phoenix hotel Manila and moreover, 3 days and 2 nights offer for 2 people in a deluxe room. Dude! You got to be kidding me. Would you by any chance want to leave this deal? Moreover, there is no rocket science to use this deals, you just need to click on the desire deal and it will automatically takes you to the where you can book the hotels and can avail discounts. Isn’t that amazing?


See, it is not just about Groupon deals, if you scroll through you will find discounted deals on many company such as Expedia and Ctrip.

All I need to say is that Shop online and Save, it’s your money don’t just waste it.

Happy Shopping!!

Callao Cave in Penablanca Cagayan

Before the discovery of pancit batil patong, the first thing that comes to my mind when one mentions Tuguegarao City is a cave; a huge one where light filters in from a natural crevice above illuminating a row of pews facing a natural stone altar. A cave, whose chambers are large enough to hold weddings in. One unlike any other in the Philippines; Callao Cave.

Callao Cave in Penablanca Cagayan

But I was dead wrong on my assumptions.

During my first visit to Tuguegarao City, I was finally able to step inside this northern gem. It’s not located in Tuguegarao City as I previously thought, but in the sleepy town of PeƱablanca, 24 kilometers away from where I thought it was.

Tuguegarao Souvenirs at Lighthouse Cooperative

We braved the scorching afternoon heat to find souvenirs to bring back home from Tuguegarao City. We walked, scouring the local market and the main avenue of the city, finding nothing. Tuguegarao isn’t really that prominent on the tourism map and its lack of souvenir shops is quite understandable.

Tired, defeated and dehydrated, we finally went back to our hotel, Holiday Plaza Tuguegarao, and asked where we can find some pasalubong.

Tuguegarao Souvenirs at Lighthouse Cooperative

Apparently, there’s only one place to buy souvenirs in Tuguegarao City. One of the friendly staff told us to head over to the lighthouse along the city center. We were taken aback, there’s a lighthouse in the city?!

Well, not a real lighthouse, but rather, a cooperative named Lighthouse along Luna Street.

Jasmine-Jomar’s Panciteria Buntun Bridge Tuguegarao

There is absolutely no argument, Jomar’s has the best pancit batil patong in Tuguegarao, but we were tipped off that it has another branch near the city’s Buntun Bridge; a branch of sort anyways, Jasmine-Jomar’s Panciteria. With our obsession with this noodle dish at fever pitch, we hailed a tricycle one afternoon and decided to check it out for ourselves.

Jasmine-Jomar’s Panciteria Buntun Bridge Tuguegarao

We timed our visit right before sunset, might as well take some photos of Buntun Bridge, the longest bridge this side of the Philippines, along the way. We looked for a way down the banks of Cagayan River, hoping to find a nice spot to pass the time and ready our tummies for another bout of pancit batil patong binge.

Dim's Resto in Tuguegarao City

Every morning, our measly complimentary breakfast meal at the Holiday Plaza Hotel in Tuguegarao City always left us wanting for more. So after finishing everything off in a single minute, we’d head over to the nearby Dim’s Resto, a tapsihan near the hotel, to continue our meal.

Dim's Resto Tapsilog in Tuguegarao City

One would think that finding a tapsilog place in a bustling city like Tuguegarao would be a piece of cake, well, we thought wrong. Here, panciterias rule. It took us quite a bit of hunting to find a place selling a good old tapsilog. During our three-day stay, we only found a single eatery selling our favorite morning fare.

Dim’s Resto is a simple carinderia along Blumentritt Street. It has no air-conditioning, has a bare concrete floor complemented by colorful wood furniture. It seemed popular enough with the locals, so we instantly sat down to check their menu.
