Vacation is finally here, Candy Girls, and we know you've been waiting for this time for months. We really can't blame you because you've spent most of your months staying up until the early hours of the morning just to finish your school requirements. So now that your break is finally here, we want to encourage you to go out and explore the world.

If you don't know where and how to start, then let teen king Daniel Padilla and teen queen Kathryn Bernardo show you around the Philippines because, in case you haven't noticed, their movies are mostly shot in picturesque locations in our country. If you want to relive their sweet moments together, why don't you visit these places this vacation.

  1. Plantation Bay Resort & Spa in Marigondon, Mactan Island, Cebu

Remember Kath and DJ's very first movie Must Be...Love? Reminisce that very first time you fell in love and got your heart broken when you go to one of the locations for this couple's first starring movie as a love team.


Located in Marigondon, Mactan Island in the wonderful province of Cebu, Plantation Bay Resort & Spa offers a ton of activities you can enjoy with your family, friends, and even babe. You can go scuba diving, on a picnic, and even explore the waters and the marine life that live in it through the tours and excursions they offer.

  1. Mayon Volcano in Legazpi City, Albay

Who would ever forget this location featured in KathNiel's blockbuster movie She's Dating the Gangster, right? Kenji and Athena swore their love for each other with the majestic Mayon Volcano in the background.

And this summer, it's your turn to do that! Go on a trip to one of the world's most photogenic volcanoes by bringing your loved ones with you to Legazpi City, Albay in the Bicol region.


  1. Mt. Pinatubo in Zambales 

Stand in awe once you get to this "beautiful disaster," in the words of Kath's character in Crazy Beautiful You. Not only will you be able to view the crystal clear waters of the Crater Lake, you will also get to ride the 4x4 (how badass!) and interact with one of the oldest indigenous tribes in the Philippines, the Aetas.

  1. Bukilat Cave, Camotes group of Islands in Tudela, Cebu

One of the things we really loved about Can't Help Falling in Love, aside from KathNiel of course, was how it featured Cebu's most beautiful spots. We loved it so much that we can't wait to get there ASAP, especially to Bukilat Cave.


The Bukilat Cave was used as shelter during the World War II for people residing in the area, and was even rumored for having hidden treasures in its surrounding area. Nowadays, tourists go to this hidden gem to see the beautiful rock formations inside.

  1. Osmeña Peak in Oslob, Cebu

Another scenic location featured in KathNiel's Can't Help Falling in Love is Osmeña Peak, a famous hiking destination in Cebu. Just like this couple, go and hike with your loved ones until you reach the highest point in the island of Cebu.
