Wishful thinking

What if? Somewhere.that would be interesting and amazing. Yesterday, i saw foreign tourists walking around the city. And it made me think. What if my.fellow.lotters--foreign and local come here and visit the city, where should i bring them? First stop would be the calle crisologo, where they can walk into the cobbled stone street and see the old Spanish houses lined up in each sides. And they could check the souvenir shops too. From there, we could hire and take the Kalesa or the horse driven carriage, become our "service" to check the museums. If they wanted to check some crafts, "pagburnayan" is one place to see. Where they can see how locals make those earthen pots. We have a place for those weaving too, the traditional woven product we called, "abel". We could have a taste.of the local delicacies too. We have empanada, okoy, tinubong and bibingka--for a snack. This is just one wishful thinking though. Lol *P.S. For those who love the beaches, white sands and nature, we could see the nearby province.

In our dialect, we call it banga. Once you come here in our country, you will have a lot of dialects to learn and they are easy to master them.

In case there's no one available, travel agency has a very good tour guide. They are knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and helpful.

@dodoazo That's good to know. The Philippines isn't all that far from Australia as travelling goes.

@dodoazo I noticed that about the people the first time I got a close enough look at the culture when I was on the other site. I would love to meet the people and enjoy the culture.

Our country has a lot of tourist spots. There are a lot of beautiful beaches with white sands. Our country has three geographical sections: the Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. I belong to the Visayan region.

Somewhere in Mindanao, there is a good place for that swimming area. There are many available gadgets to rent for snorkeling.

I think each city has everything interesting and you just have to look. We tend to overlook what is right infront of us.

In our place in particular, there is a century-old ruin which has been visited by tourists all over the world. You could appreciate how history has influenced the culture of our people on the way they live, their customs, among others.

Here in the Bay Area, I have to take them to sample our fine Asian cuisine. In addition, there'd be hiking and a visit to the redwoods and one of our rocky beaches.
