So I had a full day before Lizzy, my daughter arrives. Instead of locking myself inside my hotel room, I decided to take a tour of the Lesedi Village, which was one of the top day tours for visitors to Johannesburg. The others were the Apartheid Museum and Soweto tours.

I have never been this excited for a trip so far. At the midst of the rush hour of Christmas last year, I managed to sneak out and head off to South Africa and take on one of my most unplanned trips of my life. I boarded a Cathay Pacific plane from Manila that was en route to Hong Kong. I decided to stay for a day in HK, before boarding an evening flight to Johannesburg.

Bacolod may not trigger as a choice destination for travelers, except say for its famous Maskara Festival and cuisine. I always pass up chances to go to Bacolod, since I always end up pounds heavier. There are several new hotels in Bacolod, but one of my original favorites is the Sugarland Hotel.

After several failed attempts, I finally found a slot to stay in one of the last of Metro Cebu's resorts. And what a fitting finale it is indeed. One of the Philippines' pioneer boutique properties, Abaca Resort and Spa is also one the country's best luxury escapes.

Ever since I went to Zoobic early this year, and noticed the signs of a resort I have not heard of in Subic, I have been running after Kamana Sanctuary in my mind. Finally, because of iTravelerAsia.com, I was able to experience it and satisfy my curiosity.
I have been regularly visiting Cebu for the past 8 years both for work and leisure purposes. I have always struggled with value hotels in the past. Now, this doesn't seem to be a problem anymore for the Queen City of the South, with the opening of new hotels such as the Alpa Suites, Elizabeth Hotel, Harolds and now, Quest Hotel.
After months of planning, it's finally here. But not officially launched and up yet. This is the realization of my dream of a travel business. iTravelerAsia is the first branded Asian travel club featuring properties hand picked by travel curators. It's a new kind of travel website that enables you to customize your own itineraries (iTs) at the best rates possible. In the end, it's all about traveling independently, as I have promoted on this site.
I am so excited with my newest endeavor, and I do hope you guys spread the word. Sign up now at www.itravelerasia.com. Change the way you travel soon.

Located beside the bustling SM City Baguio, Casa Vallejo is one of the oldest hotels in Baguio City. This antique quality is its charm and selling point as well. Opened in 1909, Casa Vallejo is indeed a heritage hotel, that is reminiscent of the American era. In fact, it is already one of the 10 oldest institutions in the Baguio City.
