Complete Break Through of Expenses to Potipot Trip

Hey guys! I am back! 

Okay on this post I will be giving you the break down that we had in our group for the trip. 

We actually got a package trip to Potipot Island courtesy of Hurray zone Travels and tours so here we go!

  Transportation  = 1700 php
Food and drinks = 300 php
                 Miscellaneous   =  200 php              
Total     = 2200 php

YES! only 2200 php! for some it might be a bit expensive but think of it this way. If you are a first timer and you are traveling with about 10 people. Its actually best to get a tour package or carpool because transportation alone is quite expensive. 

The comfort in traveling is noted on this since you will decide on your stopover unlike being on a bus that has maybe one stopover on a terminal for only about 30 minutes. While if you go with a tour group, you can have two or three stops if needed. 

There are actually myriads of things I could tell you about the good and the bad things when traveling with a group or on your own. But that will be on another post ok? 

You can check out my previous post about potipot island and also know more about hurray zone there! 

Make sure to comment below if you have any suggestions. 

Much Love!

My First Trip for 2014 in Potipot Island!

 Hey guys! I am back! I know I haven't been posting lately due to my impending resignation to my current place of employment. It seems hard to swallow that after three years of working - might I say happily working with Koreans I have mustered the courage to resign as an online English teacher. 

Its not that I don't want to anymore but I just want to explore my boundaries as an individual and I would like to also experience life without getting stuck to a desk job. 

But nuff said about that I am here to show you my recent trip to... POTIPOT ISLAND! *confetti splash*

2014 Plans and Ideas

Even though this blog is named Photoescape Travels I haven't really posted any traveling posts. I know really lame but this 2014 I promised myself that I will travel more rather than what I did last year. 

I have already made plans on my first travel for the year 2-0-1-4 and I am really excited for it!

Traveling is like a luxury for some but I plan to make mine more of a hobby. I will be planning really cheap and great travels that you and your friends could enjoy also I will try to post more hotel and accommodation reviews for sure since I remembered one of my most prominent post is when I reviewed the hotel I stayed at Bolinao a year ago. 

I tell you that my reviews will be brutally honest as much as I wouldn't like it but its for the betterment for it any way right? 

Here are some of the places I am hoping to visit real soon. 


I know its quite lame but I will do a complete low down on the walled city since 1. Its about an hour away from my place and 2. Its a tourist destination that even the Manilenos need to discover.

I know this is not in Baguio but the trees remind me of it! :D

Baguio is one of those places that I miss out on my list since I never really have anyone to go there with. But I told myself with or without a companion I will go there this 2014. I remembered having pictures of my brothers going there and whenever I would ask my mom why I am not included she would tell me nasa tyan palang kita nyan paano ka mapupunta dyan?

Oh the agony of having a mom like her. But as saying expect a post of the beautiful city of Pines real soon!


 One of the cheapest ways to travel and explore nature according to my buddies is to go here. I will be traveling here by the end of the month so expect a post soon!

Here are just of the places I will be mentioning here since I have ran out of options. If you do have any suggestions do leave them on the comments section below. I will be glad to list them down and let you know if this will be on my bucket list.

Till next time!

Much Love!

Mӧvenpick Resort Cebu Tops Hot New Destinations List in 2013,

Filipino-owned Mӧvenpick Resort Cebu is the second most Googled destination in the Philippines, according to Google’s 2013 year-in-review search list. As first reported on CNN, the Zeitgeist is Google’s year-ender report and lists the hottest travel destinations by country.
The annual Google report captures the trends and interests of people all over the world, including new favorites among Filipinos.

Sky Ranch in Tagaytay and Tubbataha Reef in Puerto Princesa were ranked the first and the third respectively. Pico de Loro, Tugawe Cove Resort, Potipot Island, Amana Waterpark, Misibis Bay, Nuvali and Laiya resorts rounded up the ten spots that Filipinos were most interested in learning more about.

Manny H. Osmena, owner of the two-year old Mӧvenpick was thrilled to hear about the results.

Interesting amenities and offers at the resort include the Ibiza Beach Club reminiscence of the club atmosphere in the Spanish island. Guests could watch gorgeous views of the sunset as they enjoy the Balearic-stye churrasco capped by the world-famous Mӧvenpick Swiss Ice cream. Guests could also order the same premium coffee served in Mӧvenpick Hotels in Paris, Zurich and Berlin. The outdoor performance venue shoes exciting Latin dance numbers, fire exhibition dancers and Las Vegas style performances four to five nights a week produced by our in-house artists under the direction of the entertainment director hailing from Majorca, Spain Paco Beltran.

 Meanwhile special occasions culminate in a special fireworks display over the beach from the rooms, views of the aqua colored waters and the seamlessly constructed boardwalk made from ironwood look pristine and serene. Guests pamper themselves with the finest bath sets imported from the luxury brand Chopard. To begin and end the journey is a luxury hotel car service: a Porsche Cayenne, which provides visitors a full-circle experience of excellence and elegance they won’t forget.

The above qualities of Mӧvenpick Resort Cebu make it a place for a great and luxurious stay. The traits of this place have fueled the Filipino traveler’s interest in making Mӧvenpick Resort Cebu his destination of choice in 2013 and beyond.

Much Love!
