Visiting China for the first time this summer, we really wanted to experience Tibet. It's been a dream of mine for a long time. But as you know, going to Tibet involves a lot of arranging on forehand. Get your permit in time, go with a group or at least with 'two and a guide' and it can be...
Itbayat is the adventurous sister of Batan and Sabtang. Overlooked by many, because it's too far away if you're only in Batanes for a short trip. The boatride will take over 2 hours, on rough sea if you're unlucky. During this ride I saw many people tasting their breakfast for the second time.... yup, that's disgusting! You can't go back and...
When it comes to tourism, Batan is the main island of Batanes. Flying here you'll arrive in Basco, capitol city of the entire province. It's just a laid back little town with a small harbor. At night the city really comes to live. People play basketball, men drink in the streets and children are playing around. As the rest of Batanes...
As announced on my Youtube Channel I went back to the Philippines halfway 2016. I asked for tips on where to go, and so many reactions came in! It's unbelievable really :) Some of the suggestions were about Batanes. I had considered going here during our first Philippine trip in 2015, but we did not travel in the right season...
We start our journey through Yunnan and the Kham region in the old town of Lijiang (pronounce: Li-djang). It reminded me of venice actually: a lot of little canals and bridges all around. You get lost very easily in the small streets ;) Good to know about Lijiang This town is Unesco World Heritage, but that being said, I heard multiple people...

Visiting Port Barton for the first time in 2015, she felt like a little paradise. Just a long stretched beach with a small village, only accessible by a very bumpy dirt road. A laid back vibe with some hotels and restaurants, far from busy and touristy El Nido. Returning in 2017 I saw some changes. More boats on the shore,...

Far from the mainland of Palawan, lies Coron. Or Busuanga, as the whole island is called. I liked Coron a lot. The town is bigger than El Nido, and quite nice and lively. The surroundings have some very beautiful spots, like the two lakes: Kayangan lake and Barracuda lake. What Coron is mostly famous for is it's WW II shipwrecks. Some...

Ten tourists per week, they said. And it was high season! When we kind of accidentally ended up in Bulalacao 2 years ago, we were surprised by the small village. The beautiful islands in the surroundings, the open and friendly people and the funky tours. A destination perfect for people who love to see the off the beaten track side...
Just like Lijiang, the main attraction of Shangri-la is it's old town. Or I should say: it was the main attraction, because there is a sad story here. In 2014 a big part of the wooden houses was burned down because of an inattentive tourist. A hair straightener made the curtains catch fire, and eventually over 250 houses burned...

Oef, what to say about El Nido... There are some pro's and con's for this destination, so let's just put them together for you to make up your mind for yourself ;) But first check the videos, to get a proper impression! The one on top of this article and the latest one (2017) just down here: Why you should visit...
