Top 15 Philippine Travel Blogs

There are gazillions of travel blogs out there, maybe in the Philippines alone there are thousands, no, maybe hundreds of thousands of travel blogs. And realistically we can only follow a few.

Here’s my Top 15 Philippine Travel Blogs (and I recommend that you should follow them too)


Top 15 Philippine Travel Blogs

Justwandering is full of useful information about places, accommodations and almost everything about the travelling world. The pictures of the places with her dolls will surely captivate your attention. Nina wanders around the Philippines

and around Asia as well. She also shares her travel expense after a trip which will definitely be useful for those who are planning their next big adventure. Check out Flip’s short interview with Nina.



Langyaw is one of the most awarded travel blogs in the Philippines. Estan writes about his adventures in the Philippines and some other places in Asia. What fascinate me about his blog are the pictures. I was just blown away with how beautiful his pictures are. You should check it out to see what I mean. Check out Flip’s short interview with Estan.



Another multi-awarded travel blogger/photographer in town is Ferdz. His blog chronicles his journey around the country and in Asia too. His pictures are awesome and the details of his journey in his blog will definitely be helpful for those who want to go to the places that he’s been to. Check out Flip’s short interview with Ferdz.



Byahilo seems to be one of the longest running blog in the Philippines and this guy would probably have written everything about the 7107 islands. I like his blog because he features festivals in the Philippines which are an important part of our culture.

Backpacking Philippines


Tutubi is another anonymous blogger who writes about his journey around the country and Asia. I’ve been following his blog for the longest time I think. And up to now I still find his articles useful and fun to read.

Out of Town Blog

out of town blog

Out of town blog provides a lot of useful information about places, food, transportation and about travel blogging itself. Melo also intiates some online contests. Lately, Melo writes about tips about blogging that I think newbies would find very very useful. He also provides an online review about the hotels/hostels that he stayed in.

Escape Islands

escape islands

Escape Islands would also have covered almost all the islands in the Philippines. Some of which are places that i haven’t heard before. If you’re looking for a blog that will help you go to the off the beaten path then this one is for you. Check out Flip’s short interview with Dong Ho.

Journeying James

Why??? He travels with a ridiculously low budget and I love it. He proves to anyone that if there’s a will, there’s a way. I also like how he chronicles his expenses down to the last Coke he drunk. Way to go man!!! Check out Flip’s short interview with James.

Pinay Travel Junkie

pinay travel junkie

This girl proves that yes a Filipina can! She ventured to Europe on her own and travelled across Southeast Asia. Fear seems to be not included in her vocabulary. She’s such an inspiration for all the independent female travellers out there.Check out Flip’s short interview with Gay.



Monette and Ron’s blog would surely entertain you not to mention that their posts are very useful for those who are planning to explore Southeast Asia. Fliptravels is one of the youngest travel blogs that is bound to be big and very popular in the future. Did I mention that Ron takes f*cking awesome pictures too!Check out Flip’s short interview with Ron and Monette.

The Pinay Solo Backpacker

Pinay solo backpacker

This girl is destined to see the world. The first time I read her blog I felt that she really wants to explore as much as she can. The author, Gael, writes really well and you could actually feel her emotions in her posts. I don’t know why, but I’m very much drawn to her blog even if I haven’t seen the writer yet.

No Spam No Virus No Kiddin

chyng reyes

Chyng’s blog is one of the lightest and fun to read blogs out there. She writes about her travels in and out of the Philippines and she includes a lot of recommendation about the food she had tasted and the places that she stayed in. Check out Flip’s short interview with Chyng.

Nomadic Experiences

nomadic experiences

Marky juggles his time between his full time work and travelling. For those who are looking for the long-weekend escapes, this blog would definitely be very very useful. Check out Flip’s short interview with Marky.

Pinoy Boy Journals

pinoy boy journals

Jerik documents his trip around the Philippines and around Asia too. I like it when he talks about his realizations while on the road. This blog is for those who enjoy solitary travels and occasional partying with strangers. Check out Flip’s short interview with Jerik.

Our Awesome Planet

our awesome planet

Travelling will never be complete without food! And this is why Our Awesome Planet is on my list. Anton shares with us the experience of dining in different restaurants in the Philippines. This is for all the foodies out there.

Update: Matt Long of Landlopers included this list to his Top Ten List of Top Ten Travel Blog List

  39. Mythjen J. Trias says:

    Humor me, but I was expecting a travel blog entitled “Lost” (chuckle). Even the most seasoned travelers experienced gotten off the beaten track literally but not in a dangerous sense I hope. All the blogs here are great.

  40. Nice listing! In the processing of researching a November trip to your beautiful country. The more I read the more I want to see…and stay longer!

    I’m so surprised The Philippines isn’t more traveled or talked about – that’s ok, I’ll be the first of my friends to go.


  41. nice blog.. it really give us thoughts about the beauty of philippines..

  42. Thanks for giving this information. Hope you can sort out more travel blogs and can include mine 🙂

  43. Hello! I’m trying to setup a travel blog and I would like to ask where you bought your domain name? How much did it cost? TIA! =)

  44. great listing flip! i really learn a lot from these blogs including yours of course.

  45. ambitious as I may sound but hope to be in the list one day.


  46. Thanks to your site! I now have an idea on how to revised my blog. Our old blog used to be more on mountaineering/backpacking, but since we aren’t that active in our hobby, we decided to change it to a travel blog. Thank you and more power to us! I am now inspired to modify, and improve our blog..

  47. Roaming Couple says:
