CREATETRIPS is a mobile travel planning guide app where you can get well-curated TravelBooks and insiders tips from local food and travel experts around the world.
It was very helpful during our recent family trip to Tokyo because it provided awesome advice on the best places to go to Tokyo vs. online sites or review sites like TripAdvisor.

Here are what I like and don't like about the app:

CAFE BY THE RUINS DUA is the first branch of the popular Cafe by the Ruins in Baguio after 25 years as a standalone establishment. Its new location beside Mario's Baguio on Upper Session Road will serve as the main bakery and commissary for baked goods and pre-cooked frozen pasalubong.
It's a relief that you can now enjoy Cafe by the Ruins without braving the traffic of Session Road and Burnham Park. The "ruins" charm is lost in the new branch, but the modern-hip interiors are in tune with its double purpose as a gallery for Cordillera arts and culture.
