Philippine travel and tourism stalwart Susan Calo Medina brings the beauty of the Philippine archipelago closer to readers with the fourth issue of Susan Calo Medina's Travel Time, The Magazine.
Carrying the theme "Every Which Way," the October-December 2011 issue of the magazine is packed with articles on major and emerging destinations, travel tips, people, and culture. The cover features the Loboc Children’s Choir inside the Loboc Church in Bohol. The photo was taken by Tonette Jacinto.
Travel Time, The Magazine is packed with articles full of fun and useful information and eye-catching images, such as "Island in the Sun" (Cover Story), written by Gibbs Cadiz, who finds so much to do in so little time because it’s all in Bohol; and "In Love With Ifugao" (Detour) by Floy Quintos, who returns to one of his favorite destinations and is reminded why he has so much passion for Ifugao.
The magazine also features "Baguio for Insiders" (Special Feature) by Celina Cruz, as she revisits the old and discovers the new in the City of Pines; "Pampanga, I Like" (Quick and Easy), written by Lala Dimaano, who enjoys a three-day historical and culinary Pampanga tour for under P4,000.
