5 Summer Getaways For The Manileña

Here are a few of the favorite destinations in the Philippines.

The sun is up, the weather is good, and classes are finally over. Everyone pull out your sunglasses and sunscreen, because summer is here! And there is no better way to spend your vacation than traveling. So pack your bags, and jump into the nearest car, boat, or plane and head on down to these amazing getaways in the Philippines.

  1. La Union
    One of the best surfing getaways in Luzon, La Union is perfect for a family trip to the beach. Enjoy playing in the sand, getting a tan, and swimming your heart out. You can even book a surf trip with your own personal surf instructor at launionsurfschool.com.
  2. Baguio City
     It isn't called the Summer Capital of the Philippines for nothing. Only a six-hour ride away from Manila, Baguio City is the dream destination of those city folk who want to get away from the summer heat, but still want to be near the city. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, and general site seeing around this mountain metropolis.
  3. Vigan
    A favored tourist spot, Vigan is known for its Spanish era buildings and cobblestone streets. It is also known for its beautifully old churches, pottery makers, and historical homes. Want a blast from the past? Vigan is the place to be.
  4. Marinduque
    This island province is known for its beautiful beaches, and breathtaking mountain views. Its most popular attraction though, is its century old Moriones festival. Held on the holy week, men and women dress up in masks, portraying biblical Roman soldiers. This festival reenacts the story of the one-eyed Roman centurion, Saint Longinus, and the story of Christ’s suffering as he is led to crucifixion.
  5. Bohol
    The chocolate hills of Bohol are the main attraction in this unique island. Tourists from all over the globe flock to see this spectacular view that is known only to the Philippines. If you’re the type of person who enjoys the beauty of nature, Bohol is definitely the place to visit.
