Everyone looks forward to enjoying a long weekend to recharge and de-stress. You may want to spend it lounging on the couch and watching your favorite series, but if you're looking for something exciting, here are five activities to keep the fun rolling in:

1. Go on a fun-filled road trip

Check out the panoramic view of city lights at dusk in Rizal or the awe-striking Taal Lake in Tagaytay — and both are just a short drive away from Manila. Bonus tip: these places have awesome foodie spots that you can try.

2. Go Camping

If you're ready for something more outdoorsy, take your adventure to the next level through camping -- by the beach or in the middle of the woods. Check out the Tinipak River in Rizal which has a scenic view of Mt. Daraitan, or try the raw beauty of Nagsasa Cove in Zambales.

3. Hiking or mountain biking

And why not sweat the stress out by hiking or mountain biking? Apart from the Cordillera region, you can also check out the marvelous hills and mountains of Rizal, Laguna, and Zambales—these are only few hours away from Metro Manila.

4. Swimming

Beach lovers will enjoy the sunset of San Juan, La Union, or the tall waves of Baler, Aurora. You can also explore the untouched beaches in Quezon, such as the picturesque Cagbalete Island and Borawan Beach. Or check out the private resorts in Calamba and Los Banos, Laguna.

5. Exploring the metro

If you're not up for a long drive, maybe it's best to roam around the metro instead. Visit Instagram-worthy museums like the Art In Island in Quezon City or the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. Or bond with your barkada in mystery escape rooms and paintball spots in the city.

While doing these activities, you will surely go hungry on the way. That's why you need something to fill your tummy and satisfy your cravings while being on-the-go. Good thing, KFC Philippines has launched their newest portable but satisfying snack, the KFC Sisig Burrito.

You ask us, where will this roll take you? For only P95, you can enjoy KFC’s signature shots, flavorful sisig rice, crispy chicken skin, creamy mayonnaise, and sisig sauce – all wrapped in a tortilla bread. This snack is the answer to all your food cravings for your long weekend adventure. You can easily put it in your knapsack, car compartment, or hold it in your hands while on the road.

Here's how far the KFC Sisig Burrito took the Philippine's own Colonel, Pen Medina.
