Shangri-La at the Fort: Why it is the Best Family Staycation in BGC?!

We’ve tried a lot of hotel staycations in Manila with the family and Shangri-La at the Fort is one of our favorites.

They opened the Shangri-La Residences which is 97 serviced apartments (Levels 9-17) for long staying guests and for their Stay & Play Family Staycation Package.

Here’s why Shangri-La at the Fort continues to provide the best staycation experience in BGC ever since they opened …

LUB D Family Hostelcation (and How to Plan your Own) @Lub_d

Lub d, which means “sleep well” in Thai, is Southeast Asia’s leading Hotel & Hostel brand based in Bangkok. The new Brgy. Poblacion, Makati branch is their first expansion in Manila.

Though the design and pricing is that of a hostel, having more Private Rooms (119) vs. Duplex Rooms (34) and Mixed Dorm rooms (10) makes Lub d Makati more like a budget hotel. It’s the largest one in the Philippines targeting millennial travelers who want to see the world. It’s also great for families and training your little travelers to get used to the hostel vibe.

Our family stayed for a short “hostelcation” over the weekend. Here’s why we think it’s the best place for one in Makati…

GRAND XING IMPERIAL HOTEL: Affordable Premium Hotel in Iloilo City!

Grand Xing Imperial Hotel
Iloilo City is known for its rich cultural history, art, historic churches, old mansions, picture-perfect countryside, mouthwatering seafood, and the famed Dinagyang Festival. All of these makes it a remarkable destination in Western Visayas.

With the gradual rise in business and economy in the Manduriao district, the owners of Grand Xing Imperial Hotel had a vision of bringing back the old glory of Iloilo to life.

Grand Xing Imperial Hotel, located in Iloilo’s downtown area is a modern 184-room hotel that promises its guests a premium experience at reasonable rates. We like the modern rooms, all-floor KTV bar, majestic ballrooms, and its star attraction–an infinity pool that overlooks Iloilo river.

A Funny Lion Coron Adventure! (Is your Coron experience like this?)

Funny Lion

Coron, Palawan is no stranger to every Filipino’s bucket list. Many Pinoys have never even been to Palawan, but they’ll definitely agree that Coron is one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines.

Having been blessed with precious beaches, limestone cliffs, freshwater lakes, and spectacular diving spots filled with WWII sunken warships, Coron offers unparalleled experiences and picturesque scenery! It’s no wonder Travel+Leisure declared Coron part of the world’s best islands.

(Click the play icon ▶️ and watch The Funny Lion experience video ⬆️)

There are only a few luxury resorts in Coron. One I highly recommend is The Funny Lion, a safari-themed eco-boutique resort, conveniently located in the heart of Coron Town, 30 minutes away from Busuanga Airport.

Here’s a complete guide to our roaring adventure in Coron, Palawan…
