Looking for a place to stay in Kuala Lumpur?
We had the privileged to stay in Hotel Istana during our trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Hotel Istana is a luxurious and elegant 5-star hotel located in Kuala Lumpur’s business and financial district triangle. This 23-storey hotel has 505 well appointed guestrooms and suites designed to suit every individual’s personal and corporate needs. A walking distance to the main attraction of the city; the Petronas Twin Tower, the Bukit Bintang shopping and entertainment hub, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, and the China town district.
In 2013, Malaysia ranked as 10th most visited country in the World, according to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). Some of the reasons why people flock to this part of the world is because of its diverse culture, mouth-watering food, great shopping adventure, and impressive theme parks; like the i-City.
During our trip to Kuala Lumpur together with other Cebu Travel Bloggers, we got the opportunity to explore some part of i-City Shah Alam, a 72-acre freehold site located along a Federal Highway. This awesome theme park has something to fascinate every visitor, may it be a sun seeker, an art enthusiast or an adventure junkie. With their various rides and key attractions, i-City will surely entertain you from day to night.
Last year, I was invited by a friend on their weekend adventure—Rock Climbing. Who in their right mind, would turn down an invitation like this? Definitely not me.
Getting around can sometimes be a daunting task, especially when you’re doing a DIY trip. Since I had my fair share of experience in this area, might as well share what I know
to spare you the headache that can help you plan your own DIY trip.
If you’re here and reading this article, it just means you’re looking for a cheap and budget friendly accommodation. Finding a place to stay is one of the most important parts of planning a trip. It can be a bit of a challenge for some, especially to those who are on a tight budget. But if you’re a keen researcher, I’m pretty sure you’ll get through.
When planning a DIY tour for Palawan, don’t forget the most important thing, secure a Permit for the Underground River. Unlike before which you could secure/reserve one over the phone, today you need to get it personally. Unless you take advantage of the packaged tour offered by Travel Agencies, your travel agency will secure the permit for you. They also closed down the booking office in Sabang. So the only booking office left that authorize giving out permit for Underground River, is their new main office in City Coliseum, Puerto Princesa.

Most of my travels are DIY. So, I do some research before the trip. Top of my search would include the ‘How to get there’. Although it’s fun to get lost from time to time, still, nothing beats a prepared traveler. 😀
I made a short guide here, on how to get to El Nido from Puerto Princesa. I hope this help you plan your next trip to El Nido.
Your Home Away from Home
Mami’s Surf Haus is one of the few houses included in the Homestay program in Lanuza. Since there are no hotels in the area, the LGU and the locals adopt the homestay system instead. In that way, the local can benefit first hand on the tourism of their place.
