Time to take the road less traveled


It only feels like yesterday that the season started, but the truth is we only have a few weeks left under the summer sun. And whether or not you’ve had that epic annual trip and are just looking for one more or you’re looking to catch up with the rest of the crowd, we’ve got thego-to places for you. Don’t waste the few weekends we have left. Get in the car and move.


Bukal Falls, Laguna

If you’ve ever set your eyes on seeing the Enchanted River in Surigao but never had the chance, Laguna’s Bukal Falls is a pleasant alternative. With a few hours on the road from Manila, you can visit the pristine waters and stunning natural architecture. 



Anguib Beach, Sta. Ana, Cagayan

White sands, uncrowded shores and blue waters—what more could you ask for? Sta. Ana, Cagayan is a legitimate road trip away from Manila, but it is well worth the travel. Anguib Beach one of those stretches of sand that aren’t frequently visited yet, so you’ll definitely have your time to relax. You can even light a fire at the end of the day and just watch the stars pass you by. 



Masungi Georeserve, Rizal

To burn off any extra energy you have, take a trip to the Masungi Georeserve in Rizal. You’ll be able to see the rock formations, flora and fauna that the entire project is working to protect. The trail makes use of rope courses and you’ll have to cross bridges at notable heights, so make sure to pack your sense of adventure!



Kamiseta Hotel, Baguio

For a more relaxed time, book a staycation at the Kamiseta Hotel in Baguio. Each room is uniquely decorated and sports a colorful but tasteful aesthetic. The food is amazing, the service is top-notch and every angle is worth posting on Instagram. Plus, you can get a bit of sun without the same level of heat you’ll get here in the city. 



The Inn at Cliffhouse Tagaytay

Then again, if you have a taste for more subdued designs but still want that cool air, then over to The Inn at Cliffhouse Tagaytay. The space offers a great view of Taal Lake, which you can enjoy from the lake view rooms or the inn’s Jacuzzi. Stay for a quick stopover or make an entire weekend of it and finally explore everything that Tagaytay has to offer.



If you’re worried about accommodations being expensive or difficult to book, then just head over to Agoda and start your vacation early.
