Every summer is an opportunity to experience something new. And there’s always something for every kind of traveler since you can try all sorts of adventures in the Philippines. You can go on extreme adventures, food trips, or feast your eyes on beautiful sceneries. So before the season ends, make the most out of your summer by straying from the norm and experiencing activities that you haven’t tried before.
There’s no shortage of activities in the Philippines that are perfect for summer. Go whitewater rafting in CDO, wakeboarding in Camarines Sur, surfing in Baler or La Union, or scuba diving in Batangas.
For non-water activities, you can hike to Osmeña Peak in Cebu, bungee jump in Danao, Bohol, traverse the longest zipline in Dahilayan, Bukidnon, try the kawa hot bath in Antique, ride a 4x4 to reach the Pinatubo summit, try sandboarding in the Paoay Sand Dunes, or trek up the Mayon on an ATV. Any of these will surely get your adrenaline pumping.
Filipino Food trip
Regardless of the season, a food trip is never not a good idea. Why not go on a road trip to the birthplaces of some of the Philippines’ best dishes? Let your taste buds experience the best dishes every destination has to offer.
You’ll want to try Iloilo’s cansi, Pampanga’s sisig, Tagaytay’s bulalo, Ilocos Norte’s empanada, Vigan’s bagnet, and the lomi of Batangas. Lechon Cebu never disappoints, as well as the sweet treats of Bacolod. Try the Philippines’ contributions to the world’s cheese and chocolate fare in Davao.
This is just scratching the surface, though. There are countless delicacies in the country that are just waiting to be discovered or savored.
History and Culture Appreciation
The history and culture of the Philippines are both rich and colorful, and you won’t run out of sights and attractions to see and appreciate. Have you marveled at the unique beauty of the Banaue Rice Terraces, or got intrigued by the custom behind the Hanging Coffins of Sagada?
Try to sweat a little to witness the grandeur of Asik-asik Falls which is tucked in the remote town of Alameda, North Cotabato. The water does not cascade from a stream above, but sprinkles out of fern-covered boulders.
Of course, every Filipino’s summer will not be complete without beach bumming and island hopping. This summer, step on the different sand colors that the country has to offer – pink in Zamboanga City, brown in the diving resorts of Anilao, white in Calaguas, Camarines Norte and orange in Guimaras.
Travel back in time and experience being transported to the Philippines of yore when you walk along Calle Crisologo in Vigan. Book an overnight stay in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan, or take romantic photos at The Ruins in Bacolod, which is said to showcase the great love of a rich sugar baron for his wife.
Wherever you may go or whichever adventure you decide to try out, keep in mind that there’s always a SEAOIL station on the road to serve as your temporary sanctuary. Here, you can go on bathroom breaks, grab something to eat, and of course, gas up during your trip.
