More than a time to rest and celebrate, the holiday season—which includes Christmas and the New Year—is when families come together to strengthen ties and forge new connections.

Aside from holding parties to allow everyone to catch up on new happenings in each other’s lives, here are a few things that families can do together in the next months—a cameraphone is a must to build fond memories during the holidays!

1. Tour the country's theme parks

The holidays are when theme parks shine, and it can be worth braving the throngs of people to enjoy themed presentations or creative fireworks displays put on especially for the season. 

2. Stroll through the National Museum of Natural History

In October, the Natural History Museum in Manila opened more galleries for the public's enjoyment, making it a great place to go for the whole family. Aside from being educational, the museum aims for people to have fun during their visit, with its interactive exhibits and unique architecture that can draw oohs and aahs from first-time visitors.

3. Appreciate authentic dishes in Binondo

Chinese New Year is not the only time to visit Binondo—festive dishes there are also in high demand during Christmas, such as ham, roasts, and traditional oriental fare. Visitors can trek there to see the colorful displays of mouthwatering delicacies, and take home sumptuous dishes to enjoy during Noche Buena or family reunions.

4. Experience history at the Corregidor ruins

There is no fixed time to revisit history, and witnessing the ruins of the past can let one appreciate what the future has in store. Aside from the Pacific War Memorial, Malinta Tunnel, and preserved relics of the country’s wartime past, the island’s flourishing greenery lets visitors also enjoy nature as well as remember the past.

5. Appreciate the newly-reopened Boracay

The popular beach destination has been reopened after being closed for rehabilitation. Stricter rules have been implemented to preserve the paradise, but visitors will be able to better appreciate its powdery white sand and spectacular sunset due to less environmental damage, which the government promised will be "grander" in the future.

On these happy trips to bond with the family, a high-performance and resolution cameraphone with sufficient battery capacity such as the Honor 8X will be a plus. 


Designed for sustained use during gaming, entertainment, and work, it can also be a fitting companion while on a holiday trip with the family.

In addition to a 20MP artificial intelligence-powered camera, and 128GB storage, the Honor 8X also has a 3750mAh battery which can last for more than one day on a single charge. It also uses Intelligent Power Saving technology, increasing the battery life by 33%. It is available for P12,990 in stores around the country.
