Things to see and do in Baler Aurora, Philippines

It was another great weekend that I decided to join the Top View Philippines 2 days 1-night tour to Baler trip.

LOCATION

Baler is a small town in Aurora province on the east coast of Luzon in the Philippines. Baler is situated in the northeast of Manila and distance is about 231km from Metro Manila and took about 6 hours driving distance to reach here.

We departed on Saturday midnight at 12 am and in total 11 of us in a van. The journey would be accessed via a mountain pass hence the roads were curved.

HISTORY

According to Baler history, there was a Tsunami “Tromba Marina” demolished the town on the 27th of December 1735. Many people have been killed by the disaster and there were only 7 families survived. The seven families who were survivors climbed to the top of a hill which today is called Ermita Hill.

These are the statues of the families who survived in the tragedy which you could find at the foot of the hill

1) Giant Balete Tree 

This was the first stop of our trip to visit the biggest Balete tree in Asia. According to Wikipedia, “Balete tree is the several species of the trees in the Philippines from the genus Ficus that are broadly referred to as balete in the local language.”

Apparently, this is a 600-year-old Balete Tree and it is also known as The Millenium Tree.

2) Ditumabo Falls/Mother Falls 

After taking numerous photos at the first stop, finally, the group decided to head to Ditumabo Falls a.k.a. Mother Falls.

It required 30 minutes trekking / casual walk to enjoy the waterfall. It is advisable to wear the waterproof sandal since you will across many small streams.

Entrance Fee30 PHP ( 0.50 USD) & 200 PHP (3.70 USD) for group tour guide

3) SABANG BEACH 

It was a tired afternoon after a long journey to Baler and had fun at the mother waterfalls. We checked in our accommodation at Sabang Beach.  There are many accommodation options you could choose on the beach side, you could search more on Agoda website etc.

Surfing 

People said:” A Baler trip would not be completed without giving a try on surfing.”

If you are a first timer for surfing, this is the best place for you to pick up the surfing skill. Furthermore, the price is rather cheap which costs 300PHP (5 USD) only for 1-hour class with the local surf coach + Surfboard 

Had a great time with this group of people

Sunrise

When you were on the beach, all you need is to be laid back and also don’t forget to enjoy the sunrise view. Woke up at 5 am ++ if you do not want to miss this beautiful sunrise view.

 

4) Historical Walking Tour in Baler Town

Baler is a town full of historical story. When you are in the town, take a look and walk around :

  • Quezon memorial park
  • Museo de Baler *The opening hours only during weekdays. Saturday and Sunday are closed

  •  Baler Marker
  •  Baler Church
  • Dona Aurora Quezon house

5) Hanging bridge

A hanging bridge that allows you take some nice photo shoots. The bridge was made of wood and if you are not afraid of height, have a try walking across it.

6) Ermita Hill

As mentioned earlier, it was only 7 families survived during the tsunami in 1735. They went up to the hill and managed to escape. Ermita Hill is one of the highest places in Baler.

Going up to the hill is not that difficult, you just need to walk up around 250-300 concrete stairs to reach the big cross.

You get to see a great view of the ocean and the mountains in Baler.

7) PAGASA Baler Radar Station

This is one of the weather stations which allowed PAGASA (The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration) to collect the data used for weather forecasts and predictive purposes against natural disasters.

8) Diguisit Beach

Next stop was at the Diguisit beach which is only 15 minutes driving distance from Baler town. People come here not to surf or swim, but to explore around the rock formations in Aniao Islets, which was amazing!

No doubt, this is another good photography spot for Instagram posts.

We chose to stay at AMCO Digisit resort to relax for a few hours.

 

Here came to the end of my Baler trip and if you like to join some outdoors activities, I would recommend Top View Philippines travel group which guide by a young team. Especially thanks to Maryse who organised this trip and thanks for the group who brought a lot of laughter and sweet memories during the trip. Hope to join other events in the near future. 😊

17 Things that every Solo Traveller can totally relate to

This is the post that I like it so much, it is absolutely related to all solo backpacker like us.

If you have ever done solo backpacking before, these are the things that you may be related to yourself:

All images credit to TripZilla:

I just carried the bag with valuable things into the toilet.

It is fun to ask the stranger to take photos for you. Some of the strangers took me nice pictures though.

That is why do not shy to talk with other travellers (who might be going to the same destination).

I enjoyed this part. Got to enjoy and observe the surroundings.

It is the best time to talk to yourself.

I will write it down and perhaps share with others later on.

I’m kinda enjoying it!

I don’t choose in the hotel alone unless it’s a business trip.

Hmmm…not necessary.

Sort of.

Indeed.

I control and do what I like.

Aha aha.

Indeed. Too many foreign friends now 😛

And forgive yourself.

Deeply.

Get to understand yourself  better. Forgive others. Improved EQ. Better life direction. More brave and confident. Be a better you and many many more!

Kanchanaburi Thailand Itinerary, close to Bangkok

Kanchanaburi

All of us like to travel to Thailand especially for food and shopping purposes.

Of course, Bangkok (BKK) is in our top priority list, because it is such an affordable, cheap and a food paradise for everyone.

Lately, I just back from Bangkok Thailand. Since I have been to Bangkok many times and I will be there for workaway about a month. I have decided to explore a new place which is near to Bangkok: Kanchanaburi.

Kanchaburi just takes about 3 hours train/van journey from BKK. In the total of 129 kilometres away from BKK to Kanchanaburi.

What is this place about?

It is a historical place where it is known for the Death Railway, built during World War II.
Numbers of Southeast Asian civilian labourers (Burmese, Chinese, Thai etc.) workers were recruited to build on the Burma railway and has been estimated more than 180,000 labourers, sacrificed and died in its construction.

Sadly to say that as a Malaysian, I only got to know about the history after I have visited this place. I know I am a bit outdated but on another note, is it a time to concern and think about our Malaysian education system?

How to go to Kanchanaburi?

From Bangkok

Taking the train from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi, it only costs 100THB one way.

I will recommend you to take the old train from Thonburi station in Bangkok to arrive here. Alternatively, you may choose to go by bus or minivan.

There is only two trains to go Kanchanaburi from BKK (per day) :

07:45 am  and  13:35 pm

Check out more here:  Kanchanaburi info

I would recommend you to go by the morning train where you would be able to enjoy the morning fresh air.

Furthermore, the old train is only provided fans.

In addition, the morning train arrives at Kanchanaburi around 11 am morning time.Hence you will have extra time to walk around.

Where to stay?

I chose my accommodation which is close to the train station. It only takes 5 minutes walking distance from the train station. The hostel name is Asleep Hostel.

If you are on budget and a solo backpacker like me, it is a good place for you. You may book from here

home cook kanchanaburi

The host, Mimi from the hostel is very friendly and generous. During my stay, she was invited all the travellers to have dinner at home. It was a home cooked and it tasted good! Home away from home.

Night Market

The night market is just next to the hostel which is way too convenient.

Have you tried foot massage at night market before? 🙂

I always like to try out something new 😛

What to see here?

The Bridge over the River Kwai – I liked this place and recommend you to walk over the bridge

http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187700889851.jpgPhoto credit: here

DEATH RAILWAY MUSEUM : Very informative, but the entrance fee a bit costly which includes one free coffee/tea during the visit.

You may check out Hellfire pass museum which is free of charge if you happen to go there.

War Cemetery – it is just next to the  death railway museum, a place to give some respects to the heroes and victims

http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187708762451.jpg

ERAWAN WATERFALL – I skipped this because I have seen many waterfalls throughout my SEA trip. I heard it was similar to Kuang Si Waterfall in Laos

http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187724273181.jpgPhoto credit: here

HELL FIRE PASS – this is a bit far from the town, you have to take the public transport to go. During my visited, I was lucky enough to meet a good Irish uncle and he offered me a ride to go together with his friends from Scotland.

http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187727983511.jpg

The museum is free entrance.Afterwards, you may start to track the hellfire pass (in the jungle) :
http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187728607561.jpg

http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187729312231.jpg

Along the hell pass fire trek, you will start to relate  and understand how suffered the labourers were (without food and water) when building the bridge.

 

I have visited hell pass fire with the three of them. They gave me a free ride and treated me for free lunch and sent me back to the bus station to BKK.

I was blessed enough to meet them and they did not want anything in return.Nice people are everywhere indeed.

NAM LOK STATION: Taking the train to the last stop, Nam Lok. I did not manage to go this time.Hence there will be some reasons to come back this place?

http://www.goodian.space/images/catalog/5633/20180216_15187729984811.jpg

Kanchanaburi is one of the places  that I recommended my friends to visit. It is a lovely and peaceful place. If you’ve ever been here before or planning to go soon, share with me your experience and stories.

How to start a blog

“As this is really beneficial to everyone, hence I’m sharing this in my blog… Or course for my future posts, I will still sharing more about travel relevant posts. However, please take times to read at least this post:”

You may curious about blogging platform…

How to make money via blogging?

How to transform blogging becomes a business platform?

However, it all takes time to see the results and outcome.

First thing first, you must have your own blog website. Trust me, I was using many free blogs when I first started (just to test the water). Ended up, I “migrated” 3 times to create and have my own blog website.

For the newbie, do not repeat the same mistake as me.

Because when you are using a free blog website, there are many restrictions on the free blog.

You might not able to put the advertisement on your free blog – which means indirectly you’ll reduce many potential ways to work with some top brands and potential companies.

Find niche theme for your blog

When you have decided to start a blog, please ensure that what type of topic that you want to focus on writing or sharing.

I understand everyone likes to share many things. Sometimes, I like to share about travelling, sometimes I like to share other topics like sports, movies etc.

However, based on my research online. Most of the bloggers encourage to only FOCUS on one theme. I totally agreed with that. Just imagine when one reader searching for a topic about travelling. When he/ she comes to your page and read one of the relevant articles, and the readers might interested to know more about other travelling ideas or stories. But since you have so many different themes on your blog, it might lose the attention or interest from him/her.

It is the same thing as you want to buy a genuine watch, you will search and walk to a few shops who selling only watches. Imagine the shop is selling many other different things including toys, clothes and jewellery. How would you feel?

You need to have your own domain & web hosting

In order to own a blog, you will need to register a domain for your blog website.

First, brainstorm a good name for your blog. For example, if you like to have a blog for food, I will suggest a name which will be relevant to “food”.for example,  the well-known brand “foodpanda” in Malaysia, this is quite straightforward and readers will be directly related to food. Isn’t it?

Next, choose a reliable hosting company.

Depends on your target audience, if your main focus is the local audience in Malaysia or somewhere Asia. Here are a few companies that I want to suggest:

1. BLUEHOST: 

This is one of the most hostings company recommended by most bloggers. Yes, I have looked around online and read most of the other bloggers’ review about each hosting company.

It is one of the oldest web hosts started in 1996, Bluehost has become the largest brand name when it comes to WordPress hosting. They are an official ‘WordPress‘ recommended hosting provider.

Again, as mentioned, if your target audience is international readers. I would suggest this.

To sign up:  click here or click on below banner:

Alternatively, you may consider companies from Malaysia:

2. SHINJIRU: click here  or below banner:

3. EXABYTES : click here or below banner:

I know there are a lot of us do not have the technical background to set up the blog.

Don’t worry, I have been through and learnt many things from other experts. If you ever need help to sign up with either one of above companies (by clicking above links), do not hesitate to let me know via email or leaving a comment below.I would be assisting you and to ensure your blog goes live.

Per FTC guidelines, this website may be compensated by companies mentioned through advertising, affiliate programs, or otherwise. Any references to third party products, rates, or websites are subject to change without notice. Please do the appropriate research before participating in any third party offers.

WORDPRESS

This is the blogging platform that most of the bloggers are using. I have tried many other blog platforms as a start,  it is not saying wordpress is the best user-friendly kindly of a platform. However, there are many functions, plugin, widgets that you can install in wordpress.

I am still learning to improve better in terms of blogging and using WordPress.Each day I have been learning something new either in writing or resolving technical issues.

Whenever I have problems with WordPress, I try to google search online and it is not hard to find solution online as WordPress is commonly used by most bloggers!

Remember, everything should start from somewhere.If you think blogging is not risky to start with, why don’t you give it a try?

Despite I have just started my own blogging lately, I truly have faith in this industry.

It is not all those sorts of traditional business or multi-level marketing where you need to approach people to join you. But it is only sharing your knowledge, skills and experiences to beneficial for others.

Why should you own a blog?

Blogging is no longer considered a new thing for most people. Since many years ago, even when I was still a young kid, I already had my own blogspot. I liked writing down everything about my feelings, my life and goals etc.

Now to tell you why everyone should have your own blog website. Below are the Reasons:

Diary and Keep the memories

This is the place for you to present yourself and keeping some great memories for yourself. You can write anything you like on your own blog, because it belongs to you.

Able to help others

Alternatively, you may able to share some great and useful information with other people and readers.

For example, whenever I wanted to plan a trip, I always searching online and referring other travel bloggers’ itinerary and travel tips.

Because it is always good to get the pieces of advice from those who have been and experienced to the particular country and places.

Good place to start online business/ Entrepreneurship

Blogging is a hobby for someone but eventually may become the career for some people. This is a good platform for you to show your talent and interest.

If you want to be an entrepreneur, it is good to start with online blogging. Why? Because blogging is cheap and low cost as compared to open a new shop.

You do not need to own any products in order to earn the profit.

All you need is about doing branding for your own website. Engage with some companies brands, working on the affiliate marketing plan/sponsorship contents/ Google Adsense etc. to monetize your blog.

It might get the potential to earn up to 5 figures eventually. And who knows it turns out to be your long term life career. Quit 9 to 5 job. I have seen many successful cases online.

However, it won’t happen 1 to 2 days. It takes time to build up.

If you are interested to know how to start a blog:    click here for next post

Educate others

You will never know whatever you have posted online might become the education materials for other people.

For example, if you are interested and know about Information technology, who knows you could share new knowledge with the others. Even though you might only sharing your feelings on your blog,  it might help someone in the same situation to understand their feelings too.

In a nutshell, do not underestimate whatever you have written online. You might be giving a great impact on other people.

How I planned my 4 months South East Asia trip?

  • Preparation is the key.
  • Impromptu Plan is good too.
  • Willing and be ready to accept any unpredictable/unexpected situation.

How I planned my 4 months trip? The most important thing is by doing research.
Google is my best friend, here are my ways :

1) Google Map

Take a look at the map.
I want to explore four countries for my last trip, hence I took a look how each country looks like.
And which country is next to each other.

Photo source: here

2) Google Flight

I do use a lot of Google Flight engine to search for the cheapest flight.
There are many good deals from different airlines.
For example, Vietnam airline is one of my favourite airlines. I have flown with them for three times, and so far the flying experiences with them were great. They always depart on time. Yes, they are very punctual.
Guess what, I got a great deal to Tokyo, Japan which only costs me about RM700++ (for a return ticket) on last two years ago.
And of course, since it is the airline from Vietnam, so you need to stopover at Vietnam.
For me, which is great because I managed to go out Ho Chi Minch City (HCMC) that time for a half day trip.

Photo Source: here

I also booked with Vietnam Airline which costs me around RM120+ for a one-way ticket, but it is inclusive of
meals on the plane, insurance, luggage etc.
If you are a smart traveller, I am sure you know how to compare to pick the best deal.

3) Contact friends in the country that you are going to visit

If you have any friends in the country that you want to visit, try to ping them and ask some information.
Local knows the best! And if they are willing to hang out and meet up with you, that would be even better.
Don’t worry even if you do not have any friends over there, you are always able to use these websites to ask more questions: Couchsurfing, Travelfish and Lonely Planet .
Or you could also search for any relevant facebook group to join and ask questions from there.
There are many nice people out there which they are willing to share their own travel tips and ways.

Photo Source: here

When I was planning for my solo Japan and Mount Fuji hiking trip that time, I posted on the forum in Courchsurfing.
Ended up I met a nice couchsurfer and we had a great time in Japan..will share my Japan stories on upcoming new posts.

4) Ask yourself what type of travelling you like

This is your own trip hence you could decide what type of travelling style that you like.

For me, I just do not want to have a simply pure travelling kind of trip.
It’s would be boring for me and I like getting involved in voluntary service.
There’s where I started my research for Volunteering in South East Asia.
I did put a lot of research into this because majority volunteering in overseas it seems required to pay for a lump sum
(up to USD1000) which for me, it does not make sense at all. I want to be a volunteer because I want to help people, but ended up
it seems it’s just a tour/ package me to get “participate” in the voluntary service.

5) Volunteering

Luckily enough, I managed to find a website  WORKWAY which I managed to find some hosts and stayed with them.
Despite you still need to pay for USD34 (around RM135) for a yearly membership, for me, it is definitely worth it because
with the amount of RM135, most probably I might just spend it at one day hotel.
The experience to stay with the locals is totally priceless.By doing workaway, they will be able to provide you with a referral letter( if you managed to
receive good feedback from at least 2 hosts)

Photo Source: here

6) Buying insurance

This is essential and must-buy item for your long travel trip.
You cant predict what would happen during your travel time.
It is an adventurous trip and of course, safety is important too.
I have chose Alliance insurance after compared many other insurance companies. And again, it all depends which country you are planning to go.
You can use this website: https://www.gobear.com/my

Photo Source: here

Overall it was a safe trip for the whole solo trip (besides a few roller coaster journeys on the bus ).

7) Transportation in local

use www.Rome2rio to check if it’s possible to travel from one place to another by bus/train.

Photo Source: here

8) Budget and Money that you need to bring

Money is the most crucial one. How much do you need to bring for such long trip?
In the beginning, I was thinking to open an account in overseas lol..
After chatting with my friend, she just advised me to bring Vietnam Dong and change some USD first.
It is not necessary for you to carry so much cash for your whole journey.
For my case, I started from Vietnam and wanted to stay there longer (ended up I stayed for 2 months) hence I brought the rough costs for 2 months.
And I have also have some USD currency with me (to travel to Cambodia) and when you are going to both Laos and Thailand, you could use the USD currency to change to local currency.

Tip: Laos kip is a pretty small currency, many countries did not accept it and in Laos, and most of them do accept Thai Baht.

9) Be spontaneous 
Despite I have prepared and planned my itinerary initially, there were some places which I’ve decided to go and not to go at last minute.
When I was in Dalat, Vietnam and I have met an old friend. So he suggested me to check out Quy Nyon city (which was not in my list initially)
I went and I liked it a lot.

My Hainoi trip was decided at last minute too.

Do it. Trust me, it’s fun!

10) Enjoy and have fun
And last but not least, just enjoy the whole journey and safe travel!
If you know you are a female traveller, do not go out at night by yourself. This is a common sense, even if you are in your own country, you know what to do
to avoid or to minimize the crime case.
Be a Smart traveller and enjoy the whole journey!

Why should you travel alone at least once?

  • Because solo traveling is fun (if you know how to plan and enjoy it)
  • No pressure from others
  • You can do whatever and go wherever you like
  • Literally, you could control everything
  • Freedom is the key
  • Get to know more friends easily
  • Dare to venture out something new
  • You could heal yourself
  • Overcome Loneliness feeling
  • To know more about yourself

Sharing my own story here:

It is always my goal to staying long term in overseas.
It is not because I do not like my homeland, somehow I just tend to see, explore and experience new and different stuff in overseas.

Ever since young, I used to have this passion (even till today) and I always shared with my close friends that I want to find a job in overseas, even just going to the neighbouring country Singapore is also Ok for me… you could see how  desperate I am to stay abroad for a long term.

I thought a lot of ways to do make it happen.I tried to apply working holidays to New Zealand on 2017 and it failed. I was upset a while and decided instead of continuing to wait for another opportunity, why not I try to find out other ways to achieve my dream.

Hence it started my research where should I go…where can I travel cheap? I did a lot of online research and consult my friends who have done that before. After everything getting ready, I just tendered my resignation letter to my previous employer without any hesitation.
There how it started my almost 4 months solo trip to Indo-China aka Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand in 2017.

Travelling alone indeed brought me a lot of interesting stories.I still remember Doha, Qatar was the first solo trip that I have ever done. I will share it more in my next new post for “Qatar“ about what happened over there and what had I done with Arabs. Another story about my solo “Japan” trip where I have met a crazy couchsurfer and what crazy stuff I have done over there. Stay tuned for my new posts!

To be frank,traveling alone is not as scary as what you thought.If you are not confident enough to go abroad alone at the moment, try to test yourself in your own country first. Then slowly to those countries which are safe to travel alone.  I could say that I could go anywhere and wherever I like now.(by proper preparation) If I could make it, why not you?

Asian’s life…are you willing to travel long term?

Many Asians like travelling, however, it is mainly for short-term travelling. Because for us we cannot (aka not willing) to put down all our commitments. We used to follow the social norms, follow whatever it supposed to do in our entire life. When you are reaching the age of mid-20, many people including your family members (parents, uncle, aunties) rushing you to get married and to settle down. Even though the pressure might not come from your family, however, you will start noticing that your bff, your friends are going into another stage. At one point, you wonder am I the awkward one?
Well, sad to be true that there are a lot of people did not know what exactly they want in their life…
Despite they knew, there are many reasons (excuses) to pull them back .. “I do not think I could do that..I wish I could do this but let’s see.”
I would not tell you how enjoyed I was for last long trip in Indo China. By the way, I was there for almost four months (only). However, I would say this is pretty normal kind of culture for westerners. They choose to have a gap year either from university or working life. I have met some travellers where they have even been travelling for a couple of years.
Asians and Westerners are totally different kind of mentality.
These are some questions and doubts from most of the Asian friends:
a) How dare you just quit your job and started to travel?
b) You must be very rich..you must come from the rich family…you must have a SUGAR DADDY
c) Don’t you scare that you could not find any job later on?
d) Is it very dangerous to travel alone?
e) Is it safe to go these countries?
f) Do you get money by doing volunteering?
Sometimes it is hard for me to explain in details to people. Some people just would not understand why you chose this way. A lot of jealousy, doubts, negativity from different people. Of course, I am glad that there are still many people and friends that supported and encouraged me throughout the whole journey.
Especially my family members, my parents. When my relative was asking my mum, didn’t she worry me since I travelled alone plus I am a girl…well, my mum replied her steadily: “She used to do that way.” which means she trusted me and of course one thing she knew that she couldn’t stop me. Thanks to mum and dad!
If you are reading my post now and you are an Asian, I would encourage you to try solo travel once in your lifetime (no matter you are a guy or a girl). Of course, before going you must do some homework and preparation.
Feel free to message me if you need some clarification and details. I am willing to answer all above-listed questions 🙂
Cheers,
The Traveller Su
