In the Philippines, every season is summer season. The heat and humidity, which we sometimes experience even during the rainy months, always provide a good excuse for us to take out-of-town escapes to the beach or the mountains.
Families with school-age kids, however, will find the summer about to end as school starts again next month. If you want to make the most of the last few weeks of vacation to take a refreshing getaway, check out our list of 10 resorts where you can take your brood for a last minute summer trip.
