Lived in the Philippines for most of my life, have traveled to more than half of the 82 provinces.


I can help on general info on what to do and where to go around the Philippines. Or I may be able to provide suggestions on the best place to go.


As a traveller, I detest rip-offs, having been a victim too many in the past, locally and internationally - specially China and Hong Kong. To avoid pitfalls, ask the experienced victim of rip-offs! ...or, the one who is very much familiar with rip-offs so you, the foreign traveller, could be a lot happier with an enjoyable visit to my country! If only being ripped-off could lead to a college degree, I could have earned a PhD! :-)


I went on holiday here seven years ago and have lived here ever since.


I've been three times, in total about 16 weeks, to this amazing archpelago, named the Philippines!
I will be happy to help anybody with questions regarding the numerous islands, transportation, culture, etc...


Manila can be a crazy city for starters and the Philippines, an obscure place where not many things are known. The archipelago has only started to embrace the tourism challenge and therefore only slowly building the infrastructure to be as tourist-friendly as the other cities in the Southeast Asian region.

Somehow, the lack of information is daunting and even experienced travelers get to have 2nd thoughts about embarking on an exciting journey in the Philippines. But I, along with several backpacking friends, can offer our knowledge and time so that your trip to the Philippines would be an enjoyable, meaningful and fruitful one.


I can help you with information that is very different from the press releases or some postings claimed by travel sites.

I have been to most of our major islands in the south and have travelled by land, air and sea and can help you plan by helping you with what to expect and how much.


Mabuhay! Welcome to the Philippines! I'm Noel Soriano of Noel On The Road Travel Blog (, a local website here in the Philippines where I share my travel guides, hotel and restaurant reviews, travel hacks and other travel-related contents. Most of my travels for the past few years were all domestic, visiting the far-flung areas, climbing the mountains, enjoying the islands composing the Philippines. We have more than 7,000 islands here. Amazing, right?

Ready to visit the Philippines? Cool. Just in case you have questions, feel free to message me. Enjoy! Happy travels! :)


Mabuhay!!!! Be glad to be of help to anyone who wish to explore the Philippines. Cheers!!! - Amy

I live in Quezon City, Philippines (Luzon) and I pretty much travelled around the country. I can help travelers by giving them tips on where to go, what food to eat, where to stay, what to do and what places and things to avoid.


I dont just visit country , i actually move there and live there . Normally 3-6 months in the country .Sometimes even longer


places to visit/affordable place to stay


I am a tourist driver and i am frequent in most of the tourist attraction in Luzon province.


I traveled there many times and to many places, now i live there.


I'm a local backpacker. I've been to almost all the islands of the Phlippines. I've climbed the highest mountains and swum our best beaches. And although, the Lonely Planet has a lot to say about the Philippines, there are a lot more things the foreigner has to learn about my country (from a local's perspective). I think everyone would agree with me if I said that all backpackers want to steer clear of swindlers and costly hospitality. I think the Philippines is not alone. Most World Heritage sites are infested with swindlers and people who would appear to be kind but would charge you an arm and a leg. In the Philippines, I am probably the best at avoiding or dealing with them when it is impossible to avoid them. Check out my mini homepage I posted pictures of my travels around the three major island groups of the Philippine archipelago. I hope that travellerspoint could be the start of my dream of being a part of a network of volunteer travel assistants willing to give valuable information WITHOUT PAY around the globe. I, myself, am planning to explore the world starting next year. I've always been cautious and hesitant in delving into this world of international travel because I have been exposed to how nasty commercial tourism is in my country. I hope that other backpackers out there would also be willing to extend help to the budget traveler in their country. I feel sorry for those foreigners who come to my country and spend more than they should have because of lack of friendly information. I don't see the point why seeing the beauty of paradise Earth should be of monetary value.


I would like to be of help to those who are interested and thinking about travelling to our country. Where to go, what to do..etc feel free to send me a message.
