CASA ALULA

We were introduced by our tour guide to the relaxing Casa Alula.

 The owners live there but at the same time,

 we were told that they can entertain guests for special dinner or to book their 2 rooms. 

The place have a Balinese vibe to it. 

The owners Robert & Mercy were very accommodating. 

Their specialty recipe is the Hawaiian Overload pizza but its made to order. 

If you wish to enjoy their rooms for an overnight stay, 

you need to make special reservations as they only open it for special bookings 

and don’t wish to open doors for commercial operations yet.

     

 

 Talugtug is fast booming due to the Highways and Waterways

crisscrossing the landscape.

It is fast becoming an INVESTMENT DESTINATION

for both overseas interest and regional commercial interest

 

Guimba, Munoz, and San Jose City are the nearby towns & cities

but perhaps you may want to explore the PROVINCE OF NUEVA ECIJA a bit more.

You can stay in  CABANATUAN CITY for more established accommodations.

Talugtug is close to Baguio City. 

We’re thinking of 2-3 hours drive 

with all the new roads interlinking the Provinces and Cities. 

You might want to visit BAGUIO CITY 

and soak in the PHILIPPINES’ own 

WINTER WONDERLAND Over Christmas.

If you however, are looking for a bit more ADVENTURE and more nature,

we highly recommend visiting and/or even taking a break

in the PROVINCE OF AURORA.

You won’t be disappointed.

    

BALER is the foremost town of AURORA,

but you can JOY RIDE through the whole province

as it is so rich in NATURAL BEAUTY.

    

From MOUNTAINS to the PACIFIC OCEAN,

you would want to come back to AURORA over and over again.

   

If from AURORA you do not want to use the same roads you used,

you can drive up further north and go through SANTIAGO CITY

and have a good Stopover.

Whilst here, don’t forget to visit MAGAT DAM

which is also an active HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT.

From SANTIAGO CITY,

you can now make up your mind whether to drive further up north

towards the ILOCOS REGION

or drive up SOUTH to head back towards METRO MANILA.

KEEP EXPLORING but please do keep in mind that PHILIPPINES

is a TROPICAL COUNTRY so it is subject to the whims

of STORMS and TORRENTIAL RAINS.

   

If the BRITISH have an unhealthy obsession with the weather by the hour,

in the PHILIPPINES you’re good once you’ve figured out the weather

on a daily as opposed to an hourly basis. 

     

 

As always, STAY ZEN! BE ZEN!
