Visit Boracay October 2018

Visited Borcay Day 2 after re-opening, all I can say it is hassle but if you well prepare like what requirement said. You will be OK!

We landed at Caticlan Airport at New Arrival, we took shuttle to pier its cost us 700 peso.(which is you can get something local and cheaper, just wait) – Something we noticed when we pass the check point ( Verified and get stamp certified approved to enter island)

The island shuttle reuse the ticket which is they should not.  One thing, we didn’t pay is when you Leave Boracay, No Environment to Pay again.

So when we leave, we took tricycle front of Mcodnal 5 of us cost 120peso. Nothing fancy, not VIP but stay local and save our budget. Why would we spend more and get less than expect right ?

Boracay sand it perfectly fine. Always love it here.

The advisory was signed by Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo Puyat, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu and Interior Secretary Eduardo Año.

With the soft opening less than a week away, the DOT reiterated that only compliant businesses will be allowed to accept bookings or reservations and operate from October 26 onwards.

Those who have yet to secure a permit were instructed to delete or put on hold all online promotions and other related collateral until their compliance with government regulations are complete.

“The actions of these non-compliant establishments in soliciting and/or accepting booking reservations (despite the lack of clearance to open) may be considered deceptive, and may subject them to civil liability/suits,” the DOT warned. —Margaret Claire Layug/NB, GMA News

Where to Celebrate New year in Bangkok

Thailand might not so common when it’s come to Christmas Celebration but  NYE is one of the best moment in Bangkok you can’t miss.

Here’s some inspiration for your 2017/18 new year celebrations in Bangkok.

1. Countdown to midnight at Central World

ความสุขที่แท้จริงอยู่ที่นี่แล้ว...ได้เวลาชวนคนพิเศษออกมาเฉลิมฉลองเทศกาลส่งท้ายปีกันที่เซ็นทรัลเวิลด์! > http://bit.ly/2AVG7lh #CentralWorldLightUp2017 #JavierGonzalez #MagicalWinterXmas #BangkokHeartbeat #CentralWorld #TheDazzlingCelebration #CentralBangkok #ParadeofAngels">
ความสุขที่แท้จริงอยู่ที่นี่แล้ว...ได้เวล ...

Just like many countries around the world, 31 December sees a large-scale and popular countdown to the new year, most visibly on the streets of Siam in the centre of Bangkok.

Take the BTSSkytrain to Chitlom Station, Exit and walk directly connected to Central World by a skywalk. Things usually get going at around 6pm, but you might want to arrive early to beat the inevitable crowds to a decent spot.

This is previous year. Looking forward for excited more!

Hotel Near by

  1. Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok
  2. Centara Grand at Central World Hotel

The Sky Bar Rooftop at Lebua offers the most stunning views of the Chao Phraya River. Banyan Tree, Octave Rooftop Lounge & Bar, Above Eleven and Three Sixty are all rooftop bars that offer matchless views, plus great DJ music, much dancing, drinks, fireworks and all the NYE trappings we love, plus the feeling that you’re on top of the world. Partying at one of Thailand’s rooftop bars is one the best things to do in Thailand.

The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Hotel

  • Locate 25th Floor at Altitude Bar
  • Them Dress “Frozen Beat”

Everything is Big in Shanghai!In my view.

It’s been awhile since our last journey story.  Our Journey started from Manila. We flew in last June 2017 and the purpose is for transited.

การเดินทางไปประเทศจีนครั้งนี้ เป้าหมายของเราคือ แวะเปลี่ยนเครื่องเพื่อไปแถบอเมริกาเหนือ โดยเราทั้งสองได้วีซ่าท่องเที่ยวประเทศจีนแบบครั้งเดียว ดังนั้น ขากลับ ณ ตอนที่เราแวะเปลี่ยนเครื่องที่จีน เราผ่าน ตม โดยเข้าแถวพิเศษเรียกว่า Transit Visa ง่าย ๆ แค่โชว์ตั๋วขาออก (ภายใน 5 วัน) ก็ไม่ต้องเสียเงินค่าวีซ่าอีกรอบ กรณีนี้ คือ กรณีที่เราบินสายการบินที่ไม่ได้เป็นพันธมิตร หรือไม่ได้เป็นเครือเดียวกันค่ะ

And if you remember previous post #China we received tourist visa single entry to China but because of we transmitted so the way back from destination, we just need visa on arrival as Transit Visa at the airport and its FREE!!!

Let’s start.

Flight : China Eastern Airline  flight to Shanghai.

Time fly : 3 hours

Visa : Tourist Visa for Thailand and Filipino

Hotel :  We stay at service apartment hotel, where we can cook and do our laundry before heading to next destination. It was Serviced Apartment Pudong Lujiazui Shanghai! Might be not so perfect for english speaker but good price and not to far from Subway.

1st Big, in my view is – Shanghai pudong airport

Pudong Airport occupies a 40-square-kilometre (10,000-acre) site adjacent to the coastline in eastern Pudong.

Pudong Airport is a fast-growing hub for both passenger and cargo traffic. As per statistic 2016
Screen Shot 2560-08-13 at 18.00.45

Arrival to Pudong Airport

2nd Big, in my view is – China Bullet Train and Terminal

We had chance to made one day trip to Chang Zhou and we wanted to see the biggest wood pagoda and to experience nearest area out of shanghai.

We started from hotel at 8am, took subway from hotel to shanghai railway station,exit 6 [Subway map]

Let’s check Bullet Train Terminal below.

  • Below get inside terminal, must buy ticket at counter before enter, any counter will do.
  • There are lot of food inside terminal, go early because its big!
  • All seat in bullet train are reserved! You can request vip or non vip but both are non smoking with of course air condition.

3rd Big in my view – Mercedes-Benz Arena (Shanghai)

The Mercedes-Benz Arena (Chinese梅赛德斯-奔驰文化中心pinyinMéisàidésī-bēnchí Wénhuà Zhōngxīn; Shanghainese:Meisedesy-bentzy Venhu Tsonshin), formerly known as the Shanghai World Expo Cultural Center, is an indoor arena located on the former grounds of Expo 2010 in PudongShanghaiChina. It is owned and operated by the AEG-OPG joint venture.

The facility seats 18,000 people and includes a smaller venue, The Mixing Room & Muse, which is a more intimate live-music venue.[1]

The arena hosted the opening ceremony for the Expo 2010, during which it was known as the Expo Cultural Centre. Continue wiki here

To bad, there was rain when we came down there so we just only walked around at mall aside and enjoy view with foggy surrounded there.

 4th Big in my view – The Bund
You won’t miss this if you in Shanghai. Some said its main business district, probably true, some said ..its a place where you can chill out the sunset, chill drink and a good pal. Well, i don’t know but for me. Its huge than I thought and it is everything!

5th Big in my view – Big Pagoda at Tianning Temple

We took bullet train to out of Shanghai, just few hours away and take taxi 10 RMB. You will enjoy the big, tall pagoda and surrounded with yellow wall of old temple.
