5 Reasons Why I Love Kamiseta Hotel

Kamiseta Hotel is one of the unique hotels in the City of Pines. This beautiful structure has a scenic view of the city and surrounded with towering pine trees. If you're familiar with Kamiseta, a clothing brand that features cool casual classic woman apparel, their store has the same look inside the hotel.

Here are the following reasons why I want to stay again in Kamiseta Hotel:

1. The Gorgeous Lobby

The overwhelming look of their lobby gives a wonderful experience for thier guests. The set up is a French inspired theme that features lovely pieces of furniture, chandeliers and mirrors. I loved the floral detail on wall that makes the area more stunning. The overall interior is totally different from other hotels  in Baguio.

The Sandugo Eiger On A Muddy Dayhike

Some of the travelers are now switching from bulky boots to lightweight shoes for their outdoor activities. Lightweight shoes will keep you energized all the time while walking up and down hills, and on rough terrain mountain. I personally love to use lightweight shoes because it's more comfy and lighter compare to traditional bulky boots. One of the most trusted local shoe brands that I regularly use is Sandugo

I started to use my new Sandugo Eiger on a extremely muddy day hike in Mount Binacayan. The hike was vertical, rocky, muddy and slippery, but my Sandugo shoes was still performed well. It's one of  the best lightweight shoes I used so far. And for the price at P1995, it's the most affordable quality hiking footwear in the market at the moment.

Villa Escudero Plantations & Resort is one of the awesome destinations near Manila. It will take three hours drive via public or private land transportation to reach this beautiful place. It is a coconut plantation and resort in Tiaong, Quezon which opened to the public in the 1980s.

Where to stay in Masasa Beach

Masasa Beach is one of the undeveloped white beaches in Batangas. There is no resort in the island.  If you want to stay overnight, for a week or for a month, you can find here a lot of affordable accommodations near the beach. 

Located at the beachfront of Masasa Beach, D' Mariners is one of the best transient home in the island. It has 8 Nipa huts that comes with electric fan, mattress foam, pillow and blanket. Each room can occupy from 3-5 pax.

Discover Masasa Beach in Batangas

Masasa Beach did not disappoint me on my second visit. I was surprised on the improvement of this unspoiled beach. There's no garbage near the shoreline, no more big stones in the sands, the water was very pristine and transient homes were more organized.  This time, I saw the the real beauty of Masasa Beach.

Aside from swimming, you can indulge into several activities like snorkeling, diving, caving, island hopping and many more. I really recommend walking along the beach because this is the best way to see the wonders of Masasa Beach.
