Spend time with nature. Hiking has been one of the popular activities today because of the breath-taking views to enjoy with good company. It’s also an opportunity to learn more about the local culture.
You can become a joiner through various hiking groups on Facebook and make friends with new people. This is also a good exercise but be sure to be well-prepared before hiking. Check the itinerary that will be given by hiking organizers and re-check your stuff before leaving.
If you’re uncomfortable talking to strangers you can just reconnect with nature without the need to become social, no one would mind.
If climbing mountains seems too tedious for you, just get the classic vitamin sea instead. Nothing beats a good old beach vacation. Imagine yourself dipping in fresh saltwater or making sandcastles. Also, budol fiigghhtt!
You can also enroll in free-diving lessons and enjoy an underwater experience. Be a mermaid for a day! Just make sure you have the proper training before diving in—safety first!
You can also try immersing yourself in art. The Philippines has interesting museums you can explore. Some of them are even offering free entrance—yay! Free stuff.
Spend your vacation touring Manila, track the roots of Filipino culture and appreciate the art that embodies it. Looking at art can also have a calming effect. Some museums even offer fun activities like painting, origami, or seminars.
Eat to your heart’s content!
If museum hopping isn’t triggering your excitement then try food exploring! Every city in the country has its own best food destination — it’s not just Maginhawa anymore.
Spend your vacation trying some of the best foods that the Philippines can offer. Imagine yourself as a well-known chef in search of the most delicious bites. Create a memorable culinary experience by going to the unfamiliar. Is there a food that you haven’t tried before?
