The Tour Summary
“Well, not quite Manila but still close…. Journey to the Northern heartland as we immerse ourselves in things Kapampangan! From Baroque to Betute, its fun-filled day as we poke around and get intimate with the very best of Pampanga’s cultural offerings. We’ll gawk at the jewel-box of church in Betis while wading through the half-buried town of Bacolor. We’ll stuff ourselves silly with the best Kapampangan fare by one of the country’s best known Pampango chefs! To it cap-off, we’ll have front-row view of the most dazzling display of Kapmpangan artistry- the Parul Festival of San Fernando! A tour screming with Pampango pride!”

Finally, we have taken the first bold step to launch our first awesome tour. We plan to redefine the way tours are done in Manila and elevate them to world class standards. It is a bold statement I know, but the Filipinos can do it and we can show the world the beauty of the Philippines. Our vision is to provide hassle-free worry-free all-in-cost tours to all the awesome places in the Philippines starting with Pampanga. We are hoping that we create unique experiences that each participant of our tours will never forget.

We also intend to post all free information if you want to do the tour on your own. We will be launching (soon!) to be the one stop shop for all travel information for Filipinos who would like to travel. We are looking for sponsors, investors, or contributors for this project if you are interested.

Intentionally, we did not put all the details of the tour because we want to provide a lot of surprise element into it. I personally have been to Pampanga more than 10 times and I’ve learned how to organize an awesome tour. Spanky, Ivan M, Ivan H and me have been brainstorming about how we can create an experience people will never forget. We are going back to Pampanga this Sunday to do more research, to do a travel time study, and to brainstorm further on how we can make this worth more than P 4,500 J

I am personally excited and we target to have 20 people and we have confirmed bookings of more than 10 already. Thanks for having faith in us and let’s have fun on Dec. 15!

  1. OnePhilippines sounds like a great idea. I love your advocacy and I’d love to help if I can.
    I’m also delighted to hear that you’re trying to figure out how to create the most beautiful experience and value for your tour participants. And free info for those who want to travel alone?!? That’s just so generous and St. Ignatius-like!=) Good luck you all! If my wife and I cannot go this tour or the next due to a personal commitment (aarrrrghhhhhh!!!!!!!), I will definitely be there with you some other time.
    If anything, I certainly believe that nothing beats a tour conducted by extremely knowledgeable people who LOVE what they are doing.

  3. I love the Kapampangan dishes. They are expert in making buro (fermented fish with rice), tocino, longaniza, and sisig. My grandfather and his mother are from Magalang, Pampanga and I used to visit my relatives in Angeles City and Magalang. We, the Balajadia families are Kapampangan also that’s why I love to cook and eat also.
    Also, they are expert in making beautiful Christmas lantern in San Fernando City. Many people from different provinces and Manila are visiting in San Fernando City to buy the Christmas lantern starting from the month of September up to December.
    Right now, the province of Pampanga is the Culinary Capital of the Philippines because of their expertise in cooking especially during the town fiestas.
