Are you still dreaming about that long road trip you’ve been wanting to happen? Are you tired of planning to travel with your friends that never happens anyway? You have another chance to make these happen!
August is upon us and according to the calendar, there are long weekends coming up: Monday, August 19, is Quezon City Day, a non-working holiday in the city, while Monday, August 26, is National Heroes Day, a regular holiday.
This is your time to be spontaneous and surrender to full relaxation. Here are three places where you can go.
Travel to Baler
Before La Union, there was Baler, the go-to place for surfing. Did you know that aside from the wondrous beach, the town is also known for its affordable and unique restaurants? Genesis Transport Service can get you there straight from its Cubao terminal; travel time is about 5-6 hours.
Escape to Bataan
In Bataan, one must-visit destination is Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a collection of restored Spanish-Filipino houses in Bagac. Sure, it’s IG worthy, but it’s also a place that makes you feel nostalgic for the past, as well as proud of the beauty of our architecture (the place, in fact, was recognized as Asia’s most excellent destination in 2017). Again, Genesis bus company is your friend; take your ride from Cubao to Balanga, Bataan, then another bus or shuttle to Bagac. Road trip!
Relax in Boracay
We’re adding Boracay to the list! A must-visit after the most talked-about rehabilitation. Curious to see if the waters and sand have changed? If cleanliness is fully implemented? Book a plane ticket and take a look for yourself. Bring some friends and family to fully experience the new Boracay. We’ve heard that it’s better now. Don’t forget to clean as you go!
