Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar is a cozy bar by the pool and the beach at South Palms Resort. We mostly had lunch here but we also had dinner once when we thought the main restaurant was a bit noisy. Prices are expensive. We love the colorful tables and chairs strewn around the bar. The decor is really fun and chic. I think they share the same menu with the Oceania restaurant which is the main restaurant of the resort. They are open almost all day except for breakfast serving lunch, dinner and in between drinks or snacks.

Bohol Countryside Tour

Bohol Countryside Tour

The Bohol Countryside Tour is a must do when you go to Bohol. You can do this in many ways by arranging it with a travel agency or your hotel. If you would like to go the DIY route, I’ve seen some people rent motorbikes to see the island. We rented a car with a driver for the two of us. It can actually fit 4 people. If there are more people in your group, vans are also available.

South Palms Resort

South Palms Resort

South Palms Resort is located in Panglao, Bohol. It is lined with coconut trees and white sand beach. The resort has 90 rooms so it is on a smaller scale which we like. It has one main restaurant, a bar and two swimming pools. It is a bit pricey but I got a very good deal with my credit card at the time of booking, that was really nice. Otherwise, it would have been out of our budget.

Park Inn by Radisson Clark

Park Inn by Radisson Clark

 

 

Park Inn by Radisson Clark is located at the rear of SM Clark so it’s ideally located. We had a short overnight stay at this hotel. The Clark International Airport also known as Diosdado Macapagal Airport is only 10-15 minutes away by car without traffic. It’s exactly why I chose this hotel. My boyfriend was arriving at Clark airport and we were flying to Manila the next day. I decided to just stay the night in Clark rather than Manila because he had such a long travel time. It would be better just to relax. We decided to just go the next day.

Philippines 3 Weeks Itinerary

Philippines 3 Weeks Itinerary

 

If you have a foreigner friend asking you what to see in the Philippines for a few weeks? What do you tell them? The Philippines is an archipelago located in Southeast Asia. Unlike its popular neighboring countries that are easier to reach, you have to actually plan a trip to go here. It is a destination. It can’t be reached by land from the Asian mainland like most of Southeast Asia. In my opinion, it is special that way¬† because it makes it less touristy or super crowded. It was my boyfriend’s first visit in the country and I wanted to make it memorable. We had a time frame of 3 weeks. It would be impossible to see everything in that short time.

Ellis Gourmet Burger Antwerp

Ellis Gourmet Burger Antwerp

 

The restaurant Ellis Gourmet Burger is located at De Keyserlei 21 in Antwerp. It’s the street directly across the Antwerp Central Station where there are a lot of restaurants and shops lined up. They serve burgers. It seems like designer burger places have been popping up around the country. I went here for lunch because I was craving some fluffy American pancakes which I saw that they were advertising. In Belgium, their pancakes are thinner, almost like crepe. They are very good as well. I just suddenly missed the fluffy ones.

Antwerp Christmas Market

Antwerp Christmas Market

 

The Antwerp Christmas Market will be up in a month’s time so if you are visiting the city around 9 December 2017 to 7 January 2018, you will be able to enjoy the festivities. The Visit Antwerp website says that it will be a magical winter wonderland and there will be “dusting of diamonds” this year. The festivities of the Antwerp Christmas Market includes the ice rink at Groenplaats, the Christmas Market stalls, the big Ferris Wheel, the slip and slide tube for kids. They would also have some items around the city. Two years ago they had the display where they had snow on the glass so you can take your picture behind it. Last year, they had a small structure with mistletoe hang above so you can kiss under it.
