Malasimbo Music & Arts Festival happens annually in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro. The festival will be celebrating its 7th year this year with an amazing line up of artists including Jordan Rakei, Alfredo Rodriguez, Tennyson, and other locals acts you should definitely see – Aparatel, Curtismith, Skarm, and Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas just to name a few.

Now y’all need to expect more of these festivals outside of the Metro and they are definitely worth the effort. First of all, you do not need a better reason to get away from Manila traffic. Not to mention you can get away from your work for a weekend and experience more of the beauty our country has to offer.

1. This one is a no-brainer, pack all travel essentials enough for the whole duration of the trip!

[edgtf_separ[edgtf_separator class_name=”” type=”normal” position=”center” color=”” border_style=”” width=”” thickness=”” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”10"]n style="font-weight: 400;">I’m sure you would want to explore more of the place – maybe take perfect tourist-photos, or experience the locals’ culture, or just embark on a food trip.

[edgtf_separat[edgtf_separator class_name=”” type=”normal” position=”center” color=”” border_style=”” width=”” thickness=”” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”10"]style="font-weight: 400;">So go on and google some, what-to-do or where-to-eat ideas prior to your trip. But also make sure to not miss out on your favourite artists’ sets and plan your itinerary around the festival schedule.

Or bring your problems to this trip? I suggest you leave work and issues at home and just enjoy the music, enjoy the nature.

So contain your thrifty Asian ass and bring home the best local products and delicacies you will find.

Buying their beautiful beadworks, woven bags, and other local artworks will definitely help in sustaining the livelihood of the tribe. You see, buying pasalubong, not only shows how you care for your love ones, but also you care about our people.

[edgtf_separator class_name=[edgtf_separator class_name=”” type=”normal” position=”center” color=”” border_style=”” width=”” thickness=”” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”10"]ht: 400;">Doesn’t matter if you’ve been in a certain place a couple of times or even if it’s your first time, remember that you are just a guest. You may remember this saying from your fieldtrips but Imma use it still – “Kill nothing but time, take nothing but photos, and leave nothing but footprints”.
