Two long weekends are coming to us this August (21 and 27) and we've got the holidays to thank for that. If you're gearing up for a vacation but still don't know where you should go, why not have a road trip to a destination that is just a few hours' drive away from Manila? Places like Baguio City and Pampanga in the north and Tagaytay and Batangas in the south offer plenty of amazing attractions that you won't find elsewhere.

If you're settled to go on a trip to any of these locations, we've got hotel recommendations for your stay. These hotels offer great deals (up to 50% off!), not to mention that some of them are also Pay at Hotel partners so you can just pay for your booking when you check in.
