Chocolate Hills are straight from your childhood’s drawing book
Everyone has imagined a place that truly existed while drawing the landscapes in our drawings in our childhood. Now imagine visiting a place that looks exactly like you have been drawing back then. Some people say the chocolate hills are man-made artifacts but they aren’t.Continue reading

This will come as a surprise to many that the Philippines offers visa on arrival to over 150 countries, but India is NOT one of them.

Our happiest moments in the Philippines
The Philippines surprised me in many ways. Be it the lack of good local fare in Makati (Manila) or the uncomfortable but exciting habal-habal ride in Bislig, the country left me craving for more. By the end of the trip I was just not prepared to say goodbye; it had become my home.

We departed from Chennai in the midnight, had a brief halt in Kuala Lumpur and reached Manila by 8 in the morning.

People either come here for business or use it as a transit to go to other places in the Philippines. But unlike other metros, Manila has a beautiful harbor overlooking the skylines.Continue reading
