There’s so much to love about June in Manila. Summer’s technically over and we’re just glad to bid the scorching summer heat goodbye. Even better, we’re looking at two holidays coming up this month! You better start planning—book a hotel, pick a restaurant. After all, nobody wants to waste a holiday, much less two!
Independence Day – June 12
One word. Freedom! It’s a day to celebrate our freedom, all thanks to our brave Filipino heroes; and a day of freedom from work and school as well. Watch out for a big Independence Day Sale on airfares and hotels from trips and staycations you’re planning for the rest of the year. You might also want to check out nearby malls and online stores for great finds and buys on this holiday.
Eid al-Fitr – June 15
We’re going to have to wait until the evening of June 14 to verify the date of this holiday, as it falls on the day of the first sighting of the new moon. Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of Ramadan. In the Philippines, Eid al-Fitr is considered a special non-working holiday. And since that falls on a Friday, we’re in for another long weekend! Have a relaxing staycation in the heart of the city. Catch the best hotel deal in Manila with special weekend rates at Discovery Suites in Ortigas.
What a way to welcome the rainy season! We may be staying indoors more often, but that only means a whole lot of unwinding and relaxation. Soon enough, June will fly by and we’re halfway through 2018. Make the most of it.
