5 AMAZING PLACES FOR YOUR BARKADA TRIP
Because weekends are meant for traveling.
One of the great things we have in life are weekends--they give us a breather, we look forward to them, and they're always there no matter what. Whether you're planning to hit the road or have a dose of vitamin sea with your friends and loved ones, do consider the following destinations that will make your weekends even more special and worth waiting for.
Zambales is known for its beautiful beaches, but did you know that it also has incredible mountains? If you're the type of traveler who loves adventures like trekking and spending the day at the beach, this province fits best for you. The well-known Anawangin Cove and Nagsasa Cove will make you fall in love with nature as you hike towards the open sea.
Whenever you feel like going back in history, Bataan is an awesome place to visit. Corregidor and Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar are highly sought-after places for history buffs as well as photography enthusiasts. This province has also become a popular beach destination over the years with pristine shores at Bagac, Mariveles, and Morong.
Baguio will be rehabilitated this 2020, but unlike Boracay in 2018, the city will remain open to tourists--and why not? With the scorching heat of the sun in the country, Baguio is the most important refuge for weekenders who want to sooth their senses with its relaxing climate. Coupled with pine-clad terrains, mountainous views, rustic establishments, and its irresistible strawberries and ube jam, the Summer Capital of the Philippines will always be a great choice for a weekend getaway.
Batangas may have been ravaged by the recent Taal Volcano explosion, but with the determination, hard work, and faith of its people--the Batangueños--it's only a matter of time before it becomes vibrant again. There are plenty of things to do in the province, from diving in Anilao and sightseeing at Fortune Island to sipping a cup of kapeng barako in its many cafes. Find out when is the best time to go so you can help the province literally rise from the ashes.
La Union is the best place to start riding the waves like a champ. You can easily hire an instructor in the surrounding resorts and make this a hobby while you're away from Metro Manila. Aside from the beaches, there are plenty of attractions to enjoy such as Tangadan Falls, Grape Farm, and Ma-cho Temple.
