The It’s More Fun in the Philippines slogan of the Department of Tourism that was launched last year created buzz to encourage every tourist, whether local or foreign, to visit the Philippines and experience the different attractions available. With the campaign, the agency aims to promote the attractions by ensuring everyone that the sights and activities are more enjoyable.

Do you know that there is another way for you to enjoy more? Recently, I discovered that sights and activities are “more fun” with just a single card, the Enjoy VIP card. Enjoy Philippines is a premiere loyalty and privilege marketing program, providing members over Php 300,000 in savings, exclusive gifts, and VIP privileges to the hottest spots in Manila, Cebu and Boracay.
Even before the Puerto Princesa Underground River was announced as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature by New7Wonders Foundation in 2011, many foreign and local tourists have already been to Puerto Princesa because of its natural beauty, the warm accommodation of the people, peacefulness and cleanliness of the surroundings and of course, the food. During our stay in the city, we were able to try some of the food places in the locale. Join me as I recall our food tripping experience.
Right after we settled in our hotel, we went out to find the nearest place to eat since we were already starving from long trip. We found out that A&A Plaza Hotel has its own restaurant on the ground floor, Chow Na. We had a platter meal with rice, grilled chicken, pork spareribs, tuna belly, grilled porkchop, chopsuey, and mais con yelo for dessert. The grilled meats served were juicy and tender but just right to start our food experience.
From the start of planning, our schedule set for Batad was only over the weekend. We left GV Florida terminal in Manila around 10:45PM on a Friday night for the 8-hour bus travel to Banaue. The bus has wide leg rooms perfect for the long ride. Since it has only one stopover in Nueva Vizcaya, we arrived in Banaue, Ifugao at 6:30 in the morning.
The bus conductor advised us to book a reservation going back to Manila to ensure our seats since they only utilize one trip. After that, we went directly to the Municipal Tourist Center where we registered and paid a tourist fee of Php20 per person.
