It may be summer all year round in the Philippines, but it’s not all year that school is on break. Summer break is finally here—another chance to de-stress and spend quality family time. After all, your vacation leaves are there for this very reason. While you can go out of the country or off to a remote island, staycations in the city can also be a good idea and here’s why.
It’s 100% visa-free
Who needs a visa when you’re already here? A staycation in the city is just a few clicks away, so even if you randomly decide to, you can just go right away.
It doesn’t break the bank
A staycation wouldn’t cost you a fortune. In fact, for as low as PHP 5,000 nett, you can enjoy a relaxing stay at Discovery Suites, plus a hearty buffet breakfast the morning after. If you’re looking to stay a little bit longer, especially for the Holy Week, you can also book the 3-night deal for as low as PHP 14,200 nett.
It’s less stressful
Skip the bulky luggage, crowded airports, and long drives. Imagine all the stress you can spare if you just stay in crisp, comfortable sheets, with some snacks and Netflix by your side. Since you’re in a familiar turf, there’s no need for extensive research on activities to do or places to go.
There’s a lot you can do
The best thing about staying in the heart of the city is that everything is at arm’s reach. You can take a cool dip in the pool, go out for a meal or movie, shop ‘til you drop at a nearby mall, or even get an invigorating massage or body scrub. If you’re looking for something different to do, you can also go ice-skating, paint a masterpiece, or take your kids to fun-filled workshops.
It’s close to home
By the time you check-out of your staycation, you’ll have been well-rested and fully restored. Most importantly, heading home will be a piece of cake as you technically never left.
Summer break can only last for too long. It’s up to you to make it count, so plan your cost-and-time-efficient staycations this summer, and enjoy this season of all bliss and play.
