Summer is definitely here and photos of beaches and vacations are taking over our social media feed! While you are still thinking on where to go, whether it’s a solo travel or the much-awaited getaway with your friends, you might want to consider a place that suits your personality. Condé Nast listed down the types of traveler and LoopMe PH handpicked a few destinations for each!
"A sophisticated hunter-gatherer, a hoarder of the exceptional and exotic"
Travel to Baguio
Baguio has always been a go-to place for a quick rest and relaxation. If you simply want to cool down from the scorching heat in Manila, Baguio won’t disappoint. This region is also the home of wood arts and crafts. Choose from a good selection of Igorot textiles, beads, and carved wooden items. Take home a Bul-ul, a carved wooden figure that guards the rice crops of the people in Ifugao.
At the heart of Baguio's historical Camp John Hay is The Manor, a great hideaway surrounded with lush pine trees. Be in awe with its wooden interior and hallways adorned with paintings.
"Always has the energy to try out extreme things"
Travel to Anilao, Batangas
Batangas is not only a paradise of pristine beaches, but its underwater is also a gem. Anilao is one of the best diving spots in the Philippines and it’s just 2 hours away from Manila! Get ready to fill your adventurous hearts with a number of water sports activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, stand-up paddling, and diving.
Get the best of both worlds - the luxe staycation and underwater adventure, at Vivere Azure in Batangas! Take a dip at their infinity pool or interact with the sea creatures in Anilao's world-class diving spots.
"An intriguing type, laboring under that most delightful of delusions, namely, that anything at all - boredom, worry, heartbreak, fear, failure, and conflict"
Travel to Pangasinan
If you want to travel solo or you just want to mend a broken heart, Pangasinan could be your sweet escape. It’s just a 3-hour drive from Manila and the commute is easy! You’ll be surprised that Pangasinan has a lot to offer, from beaches to caves, to waterfalls. Locals are very helpful and accommodating.
If you want to veer away from the crowd of the public beaches in Pangasinan, then Masamirey Cove is the place to be. Unplug from the city noise and traffic. Spend a day or two without thinking about work and just be one with nature.
"Up early, out late, cheerfully making the most of everything a new place has to offer"
Travel to Malapascua
Malaspascua is just a 30-minute boat ride off the mainland Cebu. Totally detach yourself from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. Live the island life, savor the food, and get along with the locals.
Make the most out of your vacation and try the scuba diving courses at Blue Water Malapascua Beach & Dive Resort. You don't have to spend much for lodging in Malapascua as this laidback resort offers backpacker rooms and a chance to interact with other travelers and locals.
"There for a reason - an event, a honeymoon, or any celebration"
Travel to Samal Island, Davao del Norte
Samal Island, officially named as the Island Garden City of Samal, is just a 10-minute boat ride away from Davao City. If you want to experience what Mindanao has to offer, it is the place to be. Enjoy the uncrowded beaches with your special someone, trek to the waterfalls, and plunge in its pristine waters to see the giant clams.
Celebrating your anniversary or planning to pop the question? Experience a life of grandeur and luxury with your special someone at the only 5-star resort in Mindanao, Pearl Farm Beach Resort! Spoil yourselves in a posh suite while facing the clear waters of Davao. It's the ultimate lovers' nest.
"The saddest type of traveler. The one not paying attention, not remotely interested in where he or she is."
Travel to El Nido, Palawan
Your mind will be totally blown away in El Nido. Dubbed as one of the best islands in the world, Palawan will truly bring out the wanderlust in anyone. Your attention will be solely for the towering karts, the calming beaches, and the enchanting underwater.
Opt for a rustic, but elegant beach front resort and savor the breathtaking landscape in this part of the world. Palawan Buko Beach Resort is situated in Bacuit Bay which brings the whole El Nido experience close to nature. The resort is inspired by the traditional nipa hut and its chic interior brings the relaxation to a higher level.
