After our siblings went back to the Philippines, my husband and I continued our journey throughout Thailand. We checked out of Orchid Hostel and transferred to another hostel nearer to the Hua Lumphong Station or the central train station that would take us to our next destination. We arrived at Chic Hostel in Bangkok’s Chinatown after lunch and we were immediately given our room. Read on for my review of this strategically located hostel.

Where to Stay in Bangkok: Orchid Hostel

During our first five days in Bangkok, I booked through Agoda a family room with Orchid Hostel near the Patpong Night Market (and the red light district) because it was the only hostel I saw that could fit four individuals in one room and that would fit our budget of less than P500 per person per night. We paid P248.16 per person per day or a total of P1,240.80 for five days. You can’t have everything for this price, of course. Read on for more.

Where to Stay: Pan Pan Saga Villa Hotel, Siem Reap

Pan Pan Saga Villa Hotel is a budget hotel that I booked through Agoda I had to cancel my previous booking with another hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The other hotel I booked was resort-type, complete with cottages and a swimming pool. Pan Pan paled in comparison, with no swimming pool, and not even a proper restaurant. But we only had one day in Siem Reap and only needed a good place to sleep and take bath. Pan Pan was able to give all of that to us, and an efficient tour of Siem Reap and the Angkor Archaeological complex. Continue reading “Where to Stay: Pan Pan Saga Villa Hotel, Siem Reap”

Where to Stay in Cebu: The Padgetts Place

On the occasion of my sister’s annual vacation from work, I was looking for a place our family of 7 adults and 1 child would stay where we would all sleep comfortably and be able to cook. My husband and I chanced upon The Padgett’s Place’s booth at the travel fair in Ayala Center mid-July, and thought the P3,850 per night is reasonable enough. Read on for my review on the condominium.

Where to Stay in Bohol: 717 Cesar Place Hotel

Last July, our cousin booked for us a family room at 717 Cesars Place in Tagbilaran, Bohol. I was looking for a hotel that could accommodate four adults, 1 12-year old teenager, and 1 10-year old teenager, and my search in Agoda led me to Cesars Place. I think the hotel can be classified as mid-range, but it is relatively new and is still clean. Read on for my reviews, whether I recommend it, it’s pros and cons.

Where to Stay in Cebu: Wellcome Hotel

I now understand why “staycations” are a thing. It is having the best of vacation plus just staying inside. I used to not get the concept but I love it now especially maybe because stress at work can sometimes take the better of me, and all I want is to do nothing — just lay in bed all day, watching Stylist Inc. (I enjoyed the show so much!). Last November, my husband and I booked a double room at Wellcome Hotel, a small hotel located near Ayala Center, for a “staycation.”
