The Philippines is an archipelago nation with more than 7,000 island getaways to choose from, believe me, it is hard to pick one! Lemme help you with your selection, zoom in the map and click on the icon for more info of my favorites.
Aside from the map app, traveling today has never been easy with innovative travel apps and sites. From accommodation to tours to transportation there’s an app for it. Here’s my growing list of useful apps whilst having fun in our country:
Yes, we got air bed and breakfast listings here. To date, we got homes. And these home listings are not just homes, but homes with hospitable hosts. It’s in the genes. Hopefully, to come full circle with experiences and eats really soon.

A homegrown online-travel-agency or OTA that caters to your accommodation, activity and tour needs around the country. This booking platform offers a convenient payment option for your booking, as a credit card is not necessarily needed and can pay cash instead at check-in.
Available for both IOS and Android. Also just in case, the web browser. Don’t forget your handy Friend Code 1680.
Another homegrown travel app which coined the term, ”trip-pooling.” Here, you can “join trips planned by travelers like you.” You can choose from hiking to a beach trip to day tours. Trip sharing made easy and budget-friendly. The app’s name is an interplay of the words trip and “barkada” means peers or gang, make sense right? Perhaps, to be peers even on social media since you can only sign up using one.
Recently, available for both IOS and Android. Then the web browser, just in case.
