10 Local Places You Can Visit During a Long Weekend

5. Batanes for those who want to find themselves.

Going somewhere to ‘find yourself‘ may sound like a cliche, but those who are going through a rough patch will understand exactly what this means and how important it is. Well, we have come to find that Batanes is the perfect way to find fulfillment in this regard. You’ll understand when you get there.

4. CASA San Miguel, San Antonio, Zambales for artists and yoginis.

Just four hours away by land, CASA San Miguel proves to be the perfect sanctuary for both artists and yoginis. Everything about CASA San Miguel is photogenic and you can find calm and serenity by partaking in their yoga sessions or checking out their personal art gallery while you are there.

3. Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens, Antipolo, Rizal for extreme pampering.

Love getting pampered? In desperate need of pampering, perhaps? Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa in Antipolo is the perfect place to go! Why? Let’s just throw some words your way: jacuzzis, hydro massage pools, cozy native huts, an infinity pool, a Buddha lounge, unparalleled beauty… Are you packing your bags yet?

2. Mt Pulag, Kabayan, Benguet for the mountain-climbing newbies.

Mount Pulag, Benguet Province, Hiking, Camping, Trekking, Mountaineering, Sea of Clouds, Mount Pulag Summit, Arcobaleno Trail Tours,

The heavenly view from above Mt. Pulag is something mountain climbers really need to experience. If you are a newbie, then we’d highly recommend this climb. Add to it the fact that you have to camp out and you’ve got an unforgettable trip up your sleeves!

1. Cabanatuan for the foodies.

If you love food, then why not get out of the metro and enjoy eating in a different location for a change? Since you have an entire long weekend to do so, you won’t have to gorge on anything, either. Take things slow and pace out your pigout sessions as you stay in Cabanatuan. We suggest trying out some Filipino food at Hapag Vicenticos, drinking some flavored milk from Milka Krem, satisfying some Chinese cravings at Deluxe Chinese Restaurant, and trying the cheese cashew macapuno ice cream at Puno’s. Drop by Edna’s Cakeland, too!

There’s no need to stay home during long weekends anymore – not with so many beautiful places to explore in the Philippines. Stop being a lazy couch potato and stop worrying about leaving your comfort zone. Go grab your loved one/s or go on a much-needed solo trip on the next long weekend. We’re sure you won’t regret it! In fact, we’re sure you’ll feel very fulfilled by the end of it. 🙂
