Fun Activities You Can Enjoy During Ghost Month

Posted in Uncategorized
Thursday August 15th, 2019 •

According to Chinese folk legends, every year on the first day of the seventh lunar month the gates of hell open for ghosts to feast and wander until the gates close again on 30th day.  This event coined as the “Hungry Ghost Month” has been a long-running tradition that focuses on appeasing these wandering spirits.  This 2019, the ghost month will commence on August 1 and last until August 29.

Through the years, many believers have come up with their own set of superstitious taboos which created a cultural custom of avoiding anything during the month. Thus instead of giving you more lists that would prevent you from doing things, we have come up with a list of fun activities that you can still do during the Ghost Month. Here’s a rundown:

  1.  Have a Staycation with the Entire Family.

Travelling to far destinations is frowned upon during the ghost month but that does not mean you can’t have a mini vacation.  You can still have that much needed R&R with a staycation at Discovery Suites.  The hotel is located right in the middle of the city so no more roadtrips or plane rides needed.  The best part? We are now offering special weekday and weekend rates.

2.  Happy Hour Drinks with your Barkada

Going out late at night is supposed to be prevented during the Ghost month since humans are perceived to be weaker and more prone to demonic possessions when the sun is down.  Not to worry though, late night outs are not necessary when you have happy hour deals starting in the afternoon.  You can definitely start early and end early.  Happy Hour is available daily from 5pm – 10pm at the 22 Prime Lounge.


3.  Feast Over Unlimited Steak and Wine

Don’t let the Ghost month stop you from having a feast of your own.  Gather your friends and family and book a slot to 2K Prime.  For only PHP 2000 nett, you can get unlimited servings USDA Prime Rib and Wine.  Offer also comes with all-you-can-eat soup, sides and dessert.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • FABULOUS LOCATION AND SUPERB STAFF. The suites themselves are excellent with modern self catering facilities, fabulous bathrooms, comfy beds and exceptionally clean. The location is great for the CBD and restaurants and malls are all close by.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
