Summer is Here

Summer is here… And get ready with your luggage and we are off to a great summer.

If you are not sure where to go this summer, I’ll share to you my 5 favorite Summer Holiday Locations in the Philippines.

1. Baguio
Rising 1,500 meters above the sea, Baguio City enjoys a relatively cool weather throughout the year. On the average, Baguio is at least eight degrees cooler than any place in the lowlands. Not surprisingly, Baguio has become the “summer capital” of the country.

It is awarded with a variety of cultural, historical and scenic attractions which make it an important and interesting destination. As early as March, tourists and locals take the six-hour trek up the zigzagging Kennon Road. Within a mile of the city, the sweet scent of pine trees and flowers already permeate the air.

2. Boracay
oracay is probably the most well known place in the Philippines right now having earned the reputation as being the place to be for beach fun and parties year round. A lot of events happen on any given day and this gets punched up several notches during the summer. You can go skimming, snorkeling, hiking, yachting and yes, swimming as well. Save some energy for the incredible nightlife however as the parties kick off early and end early… in the morning.

3. Tagaytay
With an altitude of 2,250 feet above sea level, Tagaytay City enjoys a cool climate all year round.

This city perched on a ridge is located in the province of Cavite, some 56 kilometers south of Manila. It overlooks Manila Bay on the north, Taal Lake and Taal Volcano on the south, Laguna Bay on the east and the China Sea on the west. The city is linked to the Metropolitan Manila and the province of Batangas by the Aguinaldo Highway.

Among its attractions is the Tagaytay Picnic Grove where one can get an unobstructed view of Taal Volcano, which lies within a lake. Taal Volcano, which rises 406 meters from the lake, is reputedly the world’s smallest volcano.

4. Palawan
The exotic beauty of Palawan remains undefiled. Branded as the country’s last frontier, Palawan is a sanctuary to an amazing variety of exotic flora and fauna that are found nowhere else. Palawan is also home to Tubbataha Reef, the only national marine park that made it to the World Heritage List and whose grandeur is comparable to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.

With more than a thousand islands and islets, Palawan boasts of white-sand beaches, scenic rock formations, underwater rivers and magnificent caves. Other well-known attractions include Saint Paul’s National Park which boasts of caves that nestle an underground river; El Nido, a world-class resort famous for its awe-inspiring seascape and limestone cliffs; and Calauit island, home of Philippine and African wildlife.

Also in Palawan is the primordial island of Busuanga, a perfect starting point for sorties to other nearby islands.In Palawan, each day is promising. The sun rises over the South China Sea and soon everything else sparkles, including the smiles of its people.

5. Pagudpud

Pagudpud beach is reputed to have the longest contiguous white sand with mighty waves and strong winds that can compare to Hawaii. That is why foriegners love Saud white beach. Its breathtaking views, white-sand beaches and crystal-blue water makes Pagudpud a haven for tourists. I like Saud more because they are not so crowded like Boracay.

So, where will you spend your summer?
