The year 2017 has officially started. Soon, the weather will grow warmer as the summer season enters the Philippines. It is only a matter of time until then; have you already planned out your summer vacation?
It is good idea to start out early. After all, you would not want to wait until the last minute once all flights have already been sold out. You certainly would not enjoy it if you end up stuck in a condo for sale in The Fort you are currently residing in.
There are a lot of beautiful places you can visit this summer. If you are still unsure where to go, maybe this list will help you decide:
The province of Bohol in the Visayan region offers a lot more sights aside from the popular tourist attractions, tarsiers and Chocolate Hills. Panglao Island provides a different scene from the ones mentioned above. The island has several beaches, like the Alona Beach, that have clear waters and white sand.
Sagada is the place to be if you rather spend your summer vacation in a relatively cool place. It is located high up in the Mountain Province, where you can go sightseeing and learn the different rock formations as well as a bit of the Philippine history. The hanging coffins are one of the top tourist attractions in this place.
Bantayan Island in Cebu is considered as a virgin island due to the lack of resorts in the area. This is a good thing though for its seclusion can offer its visitors a place of serenity and tranquil that is very hard to find in other summer spots in the Philippines.
Those, who are seeking some thrill and challenge for their summer vacation, might want to consider going to Batanes. It has been deemed as one of the most challenging summer destination in the country. This is because the island is constantly being endowed with rain and is situated at the top most part of the archipelago. Getting to this place is also quite expensive. However, the people who have already been there say it was worth it.
Surigao del Sur
Surigao del Sur may not be as popular as Surigao del Norte, but it certainly has some summer attractions that will captivate you. Mystical places like the Enchanted River, which is sapphire blue and 80 feet deep, are surely gaining the interest of many. Locals even believe that fairies and mermaids like to frequent its waters at night.
Leyte used to be a really popular tourist spot before it was hit by the Super Typhoon Yolanda or Haiyan. You do not have to worry though because some of its beautiful attractions have retained their appeal. For example, the Kalanggaman Island in Palompon remains to be a breathtaking sight for you to explore.
Davao Oriental is another place that has been often overlooked by tourists and locals alike. This place though has a few summer spots you can definitely visit. Those, who enjoy skimboarding, can go to Dahican Beach – which is also famous for its white sand beaches.
The Philippines has many places you can visit this summer. Plan your trip early so you can thoroughly enjoy your vacation.
