Not so nice but a little history around this place. Was originally built by a Swiss Migrant to look and feel like a Swiss Chalet. The name has since been changed. Lots of heavy dark wood and stain glass. The Swiss flag still flies in the bar area. Free breakfast but no free Wi-Fi. Kind of dark and dungy. This hotel has seen better days. Right next to Paco Park and Cemetery where J.P. Rizal is said to be buried. With a little bit or research a much better hotel can be found for the same price.

... our plane hadn’t arrived yet. Finally, at around 4:30pm, we taxied out onto the runway, and seemed just about to take off, when the pilot came on and said the flight was canceled, and that we were going back to the gate. We later learned that Busuanga is a "visual airport" and that planes can’t land after dark because they don’t use radar and the pilots need to be able to see. At least the airline did take responsibility and put us up in a hotel, shuttle ...

On Monday we were given notice that Typhoon Glenda is headed to the Philippines and expected to hit Manila midafternoon. The Typhoon slowed down and took another full day to "hit". On Tuesday night into Wednesday, the winds started to pick up and the rain was more consistent. Around 4:30am the lights in the office started to flicker and it even went dark a few times. When the sun came up we were better able to see the ...
... early lunch before heading for our hotel.
Other than a few kids begging in the streets (and in McDonalds until the security guard kicked them out), and a few roadside traders and tricycle riders, we were left to our own devices as we walked towards our hotel. People stopped to let us pass with our big bags, and smiled or said "hello" if they caught our eyes, which all felt quite unlike our experience of Asia to date. We realised we'd walked past the ...
... a South African girl we met, trekked through the island with a guide for about an hour and a half. We got to see 7 or 8 komodos and even witnessed 3 of them fighting! The komodos were between 2 and 3 meters in length and we were able to get unbelievably close to them. In addition, we saw deer, water buffalo, monkeys and a boar all in their natural habitat! After Rinca island, we snorkeled two different spots on the way back but didn't see anything special besides a moray eel and a ...
