SP | Where would you find the finest casinos Asia has to offer?

Asia offers travellers a lot of value for their money. The region offers some unique landscapes as well as cultures to enjoy. There are many points of interest to fill up one’s travel itinerary. Additionally, some of the best casinos can be found in this part of the world. Visitors to Singapore will want to take in the Resorts World Sentosa, which is found in the city of Sentosa. The casino here is part of the larger resort which provides numerous forms of entertainment. Universal Studios has built a park here which was their first venture within Asia. This theme park is quite popular among tourists. Additionally, the Resorts World Sentosa offers guests the world’s largest oceanarium in their Marine Life Park. As is the case with many casino resorts in Asia, the Resorts World Sentosa does offer a large selection of casino games.

Macau has become well-known in the gaming industry to providing some of the best casino gambling in the world. In fact, it has even surpassed Las Vegas as the top gambling destination. One casino that should be visited here is the Casino Lisboa. One of the oldest casinos in Macau, the Casino Lisboa was built over four decades ago. The casino is distinctively designed in the shape of a lotus flower which adds to its appeal. Despite its age, the casino is up to date; having undergone frequent renovations in recent years, which is important given the competition posed by online establishments such as online casino Australia. Expect to find a modern casino when you visit the Casino Lisboa.

Another casino that should be visited in Macau is the Venetian Macau. Built by the same developers who are responsible for the Venetian in Vegas, the Macau version is much larger. Also, using the city of Venice for inspiration, the casino has over a half million square feet of gambling space. Within this space, gamblers can choose from slot machines, which number around 3500. Those that prefer table games have 800 from which to make their choice.

Mt. Bulusan | The Southernmost Volcano of Luzon

Only 2 years have passed since the uneventful eruption of Mt. Bulusan yet there we were, bravely walking its trail. I guess it’s somewhat due to the ordeal the place had to go through that there was a certain calm that surrounded the place.

SP | Cintai by Corito's Garden

A perfect place to unwind and relax. An environment that encourages you to disconnect from the web world and be in touch with oneself. We really wanted to stay somewhere comfortable after a magical day at Enchanted Kingdom and fortunately, we were in the best of luck. For the good guys that organized this Microtel weekend trip took us directly to the beautiful Balinese resort, Cintai by Corito’s Garden.

SP | Microtel by Wyndham · Batangas

We, both authors of this website, usually go on spontaneous rugged outdoor trips to satisfy our travel hunger. We have always loved the idea of breaking a sweat that’s why a hotel staycation trip is somewhat new to us. And what can we say? It was still enjoyable and actually fun to just rest and enjoy the rural air. Thanks to Microtel by Windham, we were lucky enough to have a relaxing and fun-filled weekend.

Mt. Balingkilat | The Inferno Traverse To Nagsasa

This is a story of a weekend so hot, we carried bundles of water intended just for cooling our heads, literally. It was a journey so scorching we crammed all 7 of us under a very young and small tree just to attain mere seconds of shade. A climb with a heat so intense, a minute unprotected by shade made my drinking water close to boiling (Exaggeration). It’s the story of our traverse atop the blazing hot trails of Mt. Balingkilat.

Cebu | Sumilon · Bluewater Beach Resort

After experiencing royal treatment care of the Maribago Bluewater staff, we hastily went on to a different kind of luxury trip. We as mountaineers are accustomed to sleeping in temporary abodes yet this particular adventure definitely became one of our most memorable. At first touch of our feet inside the resort premises, we eagerly embarked on a luxurious island trip of Sumilon, hoping for a different kind of twist. Well, it wouldn’t really count as an “Island trip” if one wouldn’t be sleeping inside a tent.

Cebu | Maribago · Bluewater Beach Resort

As we walked through the long corridors of Cebu-Mactan International airport, I wondered how great it would be to be treated like a king. We as mountaineers are accustomed to receive all kinds of amenities as bonus but it would be so nice to have a weekend where you just have to sit down, relax and have some unending fun.

Gear Review | Keen Newport H2 & Waimea H2

A bright sunny day touched our skins as our habal habal zigzagged through the mountains of Mantalongon, Cebu. I was actually a bit guilty because the metro was being ravaged by Maring yet, there we were, enjoying the sun-shiny day. As we awkwardly disembarked the motorcycle, we went through our bags, got our KEEN sandals, slipped it down our feet and continued walking towards the highest point of Cebu; Osmena Peak….

Mt. Kanlaon | Guintubdan - Wasay Traverse

*We also have an article about our aborted Mt. Kanlaon climb here:

The sunny sky above gave me a good contrast from the last time I was in Bacolod. The small hovering clouds gifted me energy as it swiftly passed below the sun. I was sitting by myself on a rock that, 6 months ago, was deeply submerged down a flash flood. I was smiling incessantly as the heavens finally gave us a good chance to step atop the highest point in Visayas, the most beautiful and majestic place I’ve been to, Mt. Kanlaon.
