There are lots of different ways how people cope with heartbreak: Some comfort themselves with food by having pig-out sessions with their best buds, while some just stay in their rooms to isolate themselves from the rest of the world. And then there are the ones who embark on trips just to get away from it all.

If you're more of the third type and are wondering where to go after a painful breakup, you'd be happy to know that there are a lot of destinations in the country where you can have a fresh start. Here are some of the best places that brokenhearted travelers can visit.

  1. Batanes


If everything's too much for you to handle, it's okay to seek a spot where there is peace and tranquility, and what better place to get away from all of the drama than the country's northernmost province? Plane fares to Batanes may be a bit steep, but the bliss that awaits you will be worth every peso. Replace all the hurtful memories of your ex with scenic views of rolling hills and verdant grasslands. Rediscover the meaning of trust at the Honesty Coffee Shop. And finally, gain a new perspective when you see Basco's breathtaking lighthouse.

  1. Caramoan, Camarines Sur

One of the first steps you will take towards moving on is detaching yourself from the person who hurt you. But how can you do that when you're constantly online and stalking his Facebook page for updates on his new (ouch) bae? It's high time you unplug the WiFi and start the healing process by giving yourself the vacation you deserve at the beautiful Caramoan. This remote paradise in Camarines Sur may be exactly what you need to forget. Mobile and internet signals here aren't that strong, but who needs the internet when you have white sand beaches and beautiful lagoons right in front of you?

  1. San Antonio, Zambales


You're hurting right now so it's natural that you fail to see the silver lining in your breakup. But one visit to the coastal town of San Antonio in Zambales could make you realize that there are positive things that can come out of negative situations. The beaches of Anawangin and Nagsasa Cove were formed from previous volcanic eruptions, and as a result, their shores are characterized by beautiful and unique ashen sand. Invite your buddies to a weekend camping trip to San Antonio for a fresh change of scenery. This vacation will not only strengthen your friendship, but will also remind you that there are far more important people in your life than your ex.
