Saud Beach is the main attraction for those visiting the town of Pagudpud in the Ilocos Norte region of the Philippines. This pristine crescent of pure white sand is bordered by mangrove and coconut palm trees on one side and the crystalline waters of Saud Bay on the other. This seemingly paradisaical beach draws thousands of visitors each year.

I spent ten days backpacking around five different destinations in Luzon, Philippines on a tight budget. It's cheap. Really, really, cheap! And each trip gave me a new, exciting feel. Fueled by a few wonderful secret stories kept in my jar of travel memories, my wanderlust definitely doesn't stop here.
Normally, I spend around 15,000 to 30,000 Philippines pesos (US$300-$600) good for three to five days only on domestic trips. You may think that's fairly reasonable. Maybe if in other countries, but here in the Philippines you can spend less and save more money. Why do you think some famous I ...
On the second day of our 2-week cheap backpacking adventure, we found ourselves hooked to this beautiful beach in North Luzon called the Saud beach. I didn't wanna leave. I couldn't resist myself not to share photos on my social media accounts the very moment we arrived. If you'd seen it, even just through digital photos, you'd understand why. These photos are certainly gonna make you cringe. Not also going to apologise for it. Such a beautiful danger ahead! You've been warned!

Ilocos Norte, the northwestern-most province in the island of Luzon, has become synonymous with windmills and white beaches. Rightly so, we think, with these popular sights truly a breathtaking experience. But while tourists crowd all the usual spots, there are lots more to see in this rich and laid-back province. Check out these underrated spots in Ilocos Norte for a one-of-a-kind trip (and unique selfies!).

Crystal clear waters, powder white sand, and the lushest set of islands imaginable. A trip to the Philippines to see its many beaches is nothing short of spectacular. With over 7,107 islands to choose from, and which only 2000 of those are inhabited, finding a stunning beach to visit while in the Philippines is not hard to do. Boasting of turquoise blue waters, palm fringed islands, and sandy beaches, hopping from one tropical beach destination is one of the best things to do while in the Philippines. With my previous profession being a so-called professional beach bum, here are my top picks o ...
I tore up my usual schedule in favor of spontaneity. This is one of the most unplanned travel I did so far. Needless to say, I've been in a wonderland.
Tikling Island is located in Matnog, Sorsogon, a private island owned by a local. Only a caretaker, together with his family live there. It is very serene and pristine. You would want to steal that island once you set your foot on the powdery white sands of Tikling.
Our side-trips were Subic Beach in Calintaan Island where few resorts await tourists and the Juag Lagoon Fish Sanctuary, a man-made nest for various and beautiful fish.
