About VisitPinas.com

We could very well post travel logs in our own sites. Still, with a sense of community, promoting travel to and in our country is much easier and more meaningful. This is where we join our fellow Filipinos in exploring the Philippines – its beauty should be enjoyed by Filipinos. This is also a site where we invite non-Filipinos to visit the Philippines. If you love to travel (or would want to write something about why everyone should visit a place, see or do something, somewhere in the Philippines), then you’re most welcome in this collaborative site. Please feel free to share your Philippine travel logs and invite others to join the group, and, of course, visit the Philippines.

Who we are. This is an independent travel log of Teenee Pamaos and the Giyahero. We both love to travel. We work hard, then take time to relax. Traveling provides the much needed relaxation. This blog is partly a repository of the photos and stories of travel, partly a starting point to flesh out the Dream. We are not connected with — and not paid by — the featured sites or products (and we’d like to keep it that way). We do welcome contributions (articles and photos) of friends and members of the community in pursuing our advocacy.

The Dream. One’s lifetime is too short to see all the splendor of the Philippines. It’s a dream to encourage Filipinos, the most number of Filipinos humanly possible, to see the beauty of the Philippines, either on a reduced cost or for free, then write about the travel for others to read about. It’s an ideal cycle that should perpetuate itself. There are a number of ideas being toyed around and, hopefully, these ideas will become realities through this blog or somewhere else.

To Help. It’s very simple, really. Tell everyone about the beauty of the 7,107 islands collectively called the Philippines. Talk about the Philippine vacation spot you’ve recently visited, or any tourist spots, attractions or resorts that you’ve been to. Be proud about the natural beauty of Pilipinas. It is not a perfect country and we are far from being a perfect people. Our imperfections, however, should not hinder us from being thankful of — and enjoying — the perfect beauty loaned to us by a Higher Being. Feel free to link or point to this site.

Get featured. We’ve received “thank you” notes from those featured here (you’re welcome). For others who want to be featured, feel free to contact us to extend an invitation (so we know where to look the next time we’re in the area). Please remember that we’re not too good with fixed schedules. We travel on our own pace because any other way of doing it would mean it’s no longer a vacation. No fun in that. We’re not paid for all posts here and the reason is simple — this is the only way we present a fairly accurate and unbiased article. A biased review wouldn’t be fair to the readers.

And, by the way, it wouldn’t hurt if you guys like us on FB and twitter (see the “like” and “follow” buttons at top-middle part? Please take time to read the terms and conditions.

  1. In relation to our subject course, my teacher, classmates, and I have planned to have an educational tour to Ilocos Norte in order to visit the wind mills. What will we do in able to coordinate to the said place?

  2. Irene, I understand Ilocos is one of the provinces with very active local tourism boards. You could check the website of Ilocos. On the other hand, if you simply plan to go to the wind mills, it’s an open area and you could simply drop by. There’s a viewing deck along the road, but I suggest you go to the beach for a close-up view. You could find more about that in this post:

  4. You have a great blog! THanks for the advocacy of “huwag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan’. We really should help promote domestic toursim and help sell the Philippines to other countries because we have so much to offer.

  7. Hi,

    I’m rapi castillo, I’m currently creating an aggregator website that in part, features reviews of restaurants by other websites. Would it be possible if I could have the names of the authors of this site? Or, if I may be blunt, why aren’t there any bylines? Hehe. It is a tragedy given that they write pretty well. :) Thanks!

  8. Sharing a Noble Cause

    Hi,

    I am a book author who wanted to reach the hearts of many people to help ease their problems. I have written a book which will eventually be available on October 10, 2010.

    It is my intention to use it to help individuals develop better minds so that they can best be used in the service of their nation or to the remotest parts of the world. And in some sense, to awaken people to a new way of thinking about what it is to be human and what it takes to make life and work more rewarding and fulfilling.

    You can check my book through a static website below which I personally built for your perusal:

    http://amazingarchipelago.webs.com/

    Good intentions are not enough, they must be taken into action and least be implemented.

    Thank you for your time and hoping that I can fulfill my mission in my lifetime.

  11. Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.
