Calatagan may not be that famous when we speak of beaches in Batangas, nor a favorite choice for weekend fun. But that was a few years ago. Surprisingly, it slowly rose to fame. Some of the now famous beaches here are the Stilts Calatagan, Aquaria Water Park, Lago de Oro Cable Ski Park & Resort, and Little Boracay to name a few.
Once known as a small fishing village, Pattaya is now a sparkling coastal city dotted with wonderful tourist attractions and a myriad of activities to deal with. This is our third day in Thailand and we had great fun to take home another precious memory as we visit another spectacular sight, immerse in the culture of the city, meet new friends and enjoy the sound and smell of this present moment.
Whenever I will visit one country, there is always the most thrilling and anticipated part of it. Here in Thailand, it is in the ancient city, Ayutthaya. There are many wonderful places to explore in “The Land of Smiles” but being a history buff, glimpsing Ayutthaya’s former glory and splendor completed my Thai journey. This is my second day in Thailand and I can’t contain my excitement with new travel buddies, Jhen and Julie.
Saying good-bye to our loved ones in California and Nevada made me feel sad and emotional. I guess, we all have these emotions for a reason. Our two-week vacation in these two beautiful states went by quickly. Surely, I will gonna miss a lot of things if we get back home. And to cap off our last but memorable night in California where we stayed longer, my brother-in-law Noel, invited us for fresh boiling seafood treat in a Chinese restaurant called Asian n’ Cajun 2 Boiling Seafood Restaurant.
Our three-day vacation in Las Vegas is not enough to explore its fabulous charm especially the famous Las Vegas Strip. However, this year-round destination and the people I share the experience with will make our last day extra special. Our generous sponsors for this vacation, Miko and Derick are certified foodies. They will bring us to the award-winning buffet in Garden Court in Main Street Station located in Downtown Las Vegas.
Las Vegas isn’t all about the glitz and glamour, the vibrant city lights, swanky casinos and hotels, and the like. It also offers an incredible dining experience. Our generous hosts for our vacation in the city, my niece Miko and husband Derick had toured us to exciting places, and at the same time, they brought us to some of its unique restaurant which includes a boiling seafood restaurant, The Boiling Crab.
It was hard to wake up early in a cold and freezing morning, snuggling against the warmth of our bed. However, today is the start of our exciting tour in Las Vegas, so we have to eat breakfast, take a shower, and get dressed for the long day ahead. My niece Miko and husband Derick who sponsored our trip will bring us to famous hotels and casinos and we will revel in a unique dining experience. We are thrilled to explore and see the charm and elegance of the famous Las Vegas.
Exciting. Shimmering. Fabulous. This is what Las Vegas to me. Apart from our two-week vacation in California, we will visit my niece and her family in Nevada, particularly in Las Vegas. We can’t contain our excitement as we traveled from one state to the other to see the charm and elegance of what is known as “The Entertainment Capital of the World”.
Visiting the United States is one of my biggest dreams since my high school days. Back then, I had a notebook with a list of attractions in each State. I collected picture clippings as well which include the Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, the Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. I also had the Golden Gate Bridge for the man-made category. Never in my life had I imagined that one day, me and my loved ones would set foot in one of these famous landmarks. A pipe dream that turns into reality!
I am an art enthusiast (from sketching, painting, drawing, photography, anything that my hands can do), the reason why I admired and appreciated Apo Whang-Od, the woman of ingenuity. She caught my heart that is why when I was invited by Cy (my favorite travel buddy) to visit her place, in a flash, I said Yes! After all, I waited for years to meet her and set foot to tattoo village in Buscalan as well.
