Travel Spot: Experiencing Greece at Thunderbird Resort Poro Point
Experience Greece in the Philippines! As compared Â to my Greece-related vacation in Bellaroca (read my Bellarocca post here) which just took an hour of travel time, this time, my family got to experience Greece in a Santorini-inspired resort after a 6-hour-drive from Manila.
Each luxury suite comes complete with basic 5-star amenities. I got two rooms for my family. One for my brother and I (and little boy Sean too), and another for my mom and dad. The room comes complete with the basic necessities such as:
- HD LCD TV with Home Theatre surround sound system
- Ipod docking station with speakers
- Pantry with coffee & tea-making facilities
