If you've grown tired of beach getaways but aren't too keen on having staycations (and have a limited budget, to boot), then a trip to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bagac, Bataan is the perfect middleground.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is the country's first and only heritage resort by the sea. It sits on 400 hectares of land and has around 27 houses from 18th-century Philippines that were originally from different parts of the country, and were all reconstructed in Bataan.

With the room rates charged at 10,000 per night (that's the cheapest, mind you), going on a day tour is your best bet. It only costs P1,500 and starts as early as 8:30 am. After all, the place is only a three- to four-hour drive from Manila.
