Where to go (and what to do) in La Union

All I knew about La Union, based on things I’ve heard, is that it’s a good place for surfing. I didn’t know there’s so much more places you can actually go to and experience! Tourist attractions are enumerated below, together with their respective location and fees. 🙂 Day 1 Trekking to Tangadan Falls (San Gabriel)…

Japan Day 5: Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, Tsukiji Market

First on today’s list is the two of the famous structures here in Tokyo. Which of course, we can not miss! Say hello to Tokyo Skytree! The world’s tallest tower in 2011. And then, Tokyo Tower! The orange and white colors reminded me of ABS-CBN millenium transmitter, hihi. We just snapped a few pictures and went…

Japan Day 3 and 4: Akihabara, Meiji Jingu, and Mt. Fuji
