Laos, Thailand, Things To Know

Thailand-Laos Border Crossing Guide


Travelling overland from Thailand to Laos is quite easy, especially if your country is a member of the ASEAN. Filipinos for example get to enter Laos visa-free, granted that the trip won’t exceed the 30 days. One of the major factors that make the mentioned overland border crossing relatively easy is the First Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge. It connects Thailand’s northernmost province, Nong Khai, to Laos’ Vientiane Prefecture, which are separated by the Mekong River.

Dubai, UAE

Dubai Travel Guide for Families


Rich. Innovative. Ever-Changing. These three words always come to mind whenever people ask me how Dubai was like during our family trip last February. And when invited to share about it, I can’t seem to choose which superlative to highlight — their towering skyscrapers, each boasting of a unique identity? Their grandiose hotels and malls with lavatories bigger than some actual retail shops in the Philippines? The Emiratis’ crazy rich citizenship benefits?


Bohol Budget Travel Guide


Bohol on a tight budget? Why not! Last summer, I went back to Bohol (Panglao Island specifically) with some of my closest friends at what might probably be the most budget trip I’ve ever had so far. For four days and 3 nights, with both countryside and island hopping tours, lodging, and airfare (thanks, pisofare!), the whole trip just cost us around P5,000 per person.

Bantayan Island, Cebu

Bantayan Island Travel Guide for Families


Before you continue reading, I would like to emphasize that this is not a budget trip. This travel guide is intended for families vacationing with toddlers and/or senior citizens in tow. Unlike your usual barkada or couple trips, traveling with them will make you choose comfort over savings and rest over adventure. 🙂

Budget Breakdown: 5 Days and 4 Nights in Bantayan Island, Cebu


Traveling with friends is a lot different from traveling with your family, especially when there are toddlers and senior citizens. You can’t always choose what’s practical, you also have to consider the level of comfort. Despite this, my family and I (composed of 4 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 senior citizens) managed to spend less than P55,000 ALL-IN during our trip to Bantayan Island, Cebu last May. See our budget breakdown below.

Family Weekender: Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Warning: Photo heavy post ahead! Remember my sister who we visited in Dubai a few months ago? Well, it was her turn to visit us here in the Philippines last October and to make her vacation worthwhile, we decided to go on a quick family weekender near the metro....
