Must-Go Mayoyao Expedition!

One of my travel goals this year is to go to Mayoyao in Ifugao, which is famed to be one of the most beautiful communities with rice terraces in the Cordilleras. My friend JP Alipio, who was our master tour guide during our Batad trip (see:  Ultimate Guide to Batad, Banaue), is arranging the awesome Mayoyao trip this coming June 12-14 and August 28-30. I'm joining one of the tours and I would like to invite you to join Cordillera Expeditions.

I asked JP to personally share details via video of what to expect in the trip and why you should go to Mayoyao!

BGC Food Tour with Ivan Man Dy :)

BGC Food Tour-23

The Food Tour of Ivan Man Dy (of Old Manila Walks fame) in Bonifacio Global City last April 24 was great! It's actually a restaurant tour organized by Bonifacio Global City management to promote selected restaurants in Serendra, Bonifacio High Street (BHS) and Fort Strip.

The best thing about it is it's for FREE and open to BHS, Serendra and Fort Strip visitors. You can register as walk-in guests at the Concierge Desk in Bonifacio High Street for the upcoming May 1, 2pm tour.

Here are some of my interesting discoveries during the food tour...

Last Culinary Tours for Summer :)

Join us for the last culinary tours for this summer in four of the hottest places to go to this May!

May 1 – 3 – Ultimate Pagudpud and Vigan Culinary and Heritage Tour

Cafe Leona Vigan Lunch -007 

Tour Description:
 It's about time you experience the ABCs of the Ilocandia: antiques, bagnet and churches! In Ilocos, nature and history is intertwined. But at Ultimate Philippines, we think this is combo best savored with bagnet and beer so we're exploring this provincial belle… our style!

Let's journey up to the north and take a time-warp through the colonial city of Vigan. We'll walk through cobbles, munching our way through the town's traditional street fare and home-cooked feasts, from yummy empanadas to tasty longganisas.

More historical bites and pinakbet pizza as we take a peek at the life of ex-strongman Ferdinand Marcos in the town of Batac and admire two masterpieces of Ilocos' unique Earthquake Baroque architecture: Paoay and Santa Maria Church.

Capping off, we'll surf through the waves of Mairaira Beach in Pagudpud ending our journey in time to join the revelries of the annual Tres de Mayo fiesta in Vigan.
