To be honest, working in a BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) company is totally challenging – you have to consider coping & living with stress, shifting schedules, OTY (our so-called O-Thank You, which means you have to do overtime work with no pay), never-ending EOP (English Only Policy) and other crazy chaoses. That is why, let me just first breathe heavily and shout:
WE 👏 FREAKING 👏DESERVE 👏THIS 👏
Yesssss! Don’t just work your asses there. You deserve a break, sweetie. We all have guilty pleasures. And I definitely understand the importance of saving up, so I highly advise you check out Facebook posts or other travel promos published in social media, pack your bags and experience that good good! 🙂
For March Getaway, we explored 3 islands in the province of Quezon for less than Php 1500 – ALL IN. Yep, cool and cheap! We usually travel DIY-style. So, really sorry if I wouldn’t be able to recommend an itinerary for you. However, that’s the fun part! You’ll be able to explore with all the time in the world. Also, I got you, peep. 🙂 I’ll show you some photos later on to inspire you and keep you on your toes.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Here’s the basic deets:
- Bonfire is allowed.
- Cheap cottage rentals (lots of types of cottages to choose from). You can rent one from Php 1000 – 2000. It’s quite big already. The expensive ones have electricity.
- Sand bar!
- There are sari sari stores in the island.
- You can also pitch tents.
- Friendly tour guides
- They have bathrooms. However, you have to pay Php 50.00 so locals could fetch you clean water for bathing.
Sorry, not so-detailed. Just sharing with you guys so you’d have an idea on what to expect when you get there. If you want, you may search for travel itineraries and complete travel guide in the web. Oh also, I recommend that you stay here for the night if you’d go island hopping the next day. The other islands charge more when it comes to rentals, etc.
Check the deets:
- Bonfire is not allowed.
- Expensive meals, food, everything! Imagine, we wanted to buy 1.5 L Coke but it costs Php 100! Can’t deal.
- You can visit Kwebang Lampas.
- Too crowded.
- Nice water & sand, but since it’s too crowded, there’s garbage everywhere.
- But hey, still fun! 🙂
LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST! 🙂
I think I really regret not staying here for too long. The ambiance was perfect. It wasn’t crowded and messy. It was actually relaxing and comforting. This was the last island that we’ve visited since they have the cleanest comfort rooms and we were also about to go home.
- They have sari-sari stores.
- Clean bathrooms and shower areas.
- Cozy areas to pitch tents
- Bonfire is not allowed.
- Friendly guides/locals
Stay tuned for more adventures.
Thanks for walking with me!
