Explore MyPhilippines: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

Image
 Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City Bag of Beans is one of the must visit places in Tagaytay City. I am witness to how Bag of Beans has grown from a small coffee shop to an established dining place that it is now today.  Bag of Beans has also opened several branches along the Tagaytay City tourist stretch with six branches as of this writing. Bag of Beans caters as events venue and is one of the preferred wedding venues in Tagaytay City. Bag of Beans is also now into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. For this particular visit, me and my Family came for lunch. The food is really nice! Of course coffee and dessert after lunch is a must!  It was definitely worth the travel!

Pangasinan Hundred Islands


A visit to the Pangasinan Hundred Island means... more fun... island hopping... swimming... and sight seeing.

Once you reached Aliminos, Pangasinan, proceed to the pier where there's 
a parking area to park your car.

You need to register with the local Tourism Agency unit, which handles the
assigning of your Tour Guide, Boat, Safety Gears (Life Vest), Snorkeling Gears, etc. This is also where you pay the corresponding dues/charges.

Tip 1: Depending on what time you arrive, you can take your lunch before riding your boat. Else, just bring your food and go island hopping already.

Tip 2: Bring everything you need, your clothes, food, water, towel, camera, sun block lotion, etc. You can keep it dry inside the boat.

Tip 3: Depending on your budget, you can take the package for the whole day rental of the boat. This way, you can actually leave your things (dry) inside the boat. Just leave valuable items in you car.

Tip 4: You can also opt to be brought back to your selected swimming place (island) and just arrange pick-up time with your Tourist Guide. With this option, I would suggest you go island hopping first, then once you have been to each of the islands, you will have an idea of which island to stay.

This is where we stayed for the rest of the day.
It fits the place we want to stay more... nice white sand beach... not so crowded...
Juts perfect for us!
