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…

MANILA LIFE: Co-working Cafe before your NAIA3 Flight! @ManilaMarriott

DSC06405.jpg

Flying via NAIA3 just got better with the opening of Manila Life by Marriott Hotels, and the Runway Manila overpass from Resorts World. 

Given the crazy traffic in Manila going to the airport, we usually head there 5 hours before our flight. Obviously, the long wait can get boring. But thanks to the lounge-like cafe of Manila Life, we now have a good place to hang out to work and eat while we wait to board. 

Here’s how to have a pleasant departure experience on your next flight from NAIA Terminal 3…

KILKEA CASTLE: A Castle Birthday for My Queen (and our First Impressions of Ireland)! @KilkeaCastle

TBEX Summit-17.jpg

In Castledermot, County Kildare, Ireland (one hour away from Dublin), you’ll find KILKEA CASTLE. It’s a majestic 12th century castle that’s been transformed into a luxury hotel.

We celebrated Rache’s birthday in this beautiful place–befitting of my queen and love of my life–on our first-ever trip to Ireland. It was really magical and definitely one of the best travel experiences we’ll cherish forever. 

Here is a photo essay of our stay at Kilkea Castle…

 

The-Kilkea-Castle-Experience

Once the medieval stronghold of the Fitzgeralds, earls of Kildare, the Castle was built by Hugh de Lacy for one of Strongbow’s Norman Noblemen, Walter de Riddlesford. Today it stands proudly ready to extend a five-star welcome to travelers from around the globe.
 
Set on 180 acres of its own wonderful woodland, gardens and golf course, Kilkea Castle enchants from the moment you drive down the beech-lined avenue overlooking the Killeshin Hills, only minutes from the ancient Mullaghreelan Woods.” (Kilkea Castle Website)

OKTOBERFEST MANILA: German Club Oktoberfest @SofitelManila vs October Beer Festival @CityofDreamsPH

OF`0

If there’s one thing you should get pumped up for in October, it’s Oktoberfest! 

Oktoberfest is a traditional German festival that celebrates everyone’s favorite things–food, beer, singing, and dancing! It isn’t just a traditional beer fair, it’s actually one of the best celebrations of them all. 

The official celebration takes place in Munich, Bavaria, but so many other places try to copy this awesome festival, including Manila, Philippines! However, no matter where you celebrate, there are always a few things you can expect: mouthwatering food, lively people and music, and huge amounts of beer. 

This year, Oktoberfest came to two of the best hotels in the city. Sofitel held its 79th German Club Oktoberfest on Oct 7 and City of Dreams, Manila hosted their own version of the festival on Oct 12. Both were grand, fun, and with lots of merrymaking! 

Here’s a photo essay of Oktoberfest in Manila…
