Long weekend or not, going on a road trip is always a good idea. If you live in Manila, you must know that there are a lot of awesome spots near the city where you can relax and have fun with friends. Here are five road trip ideas for the weekend that you can troop to for a quick R&R.

1. Tagaytay

Everyone’s favorite go-to place on long weekends, Tagaytay is a great choice for a quick getaway. There are many bulalo houses and coffee shops that will keep you warm and your tummy happy. If you’re going with kids, don’t miss Sky Ranch for their lovely ferris wheel and Bag of Beans for their unforgettable blueberry cheesecake.

2. Padre Burgos, Quezon

If you badly need a dose of vitamin sea, camping in Quezon is a good idea. You can camp in many of its white-sand beaches or go for a short day tour.

3. La Union

4. Baguio

Burnham Park

Who doesn’t love Baguio? It may be a bit too crowded for some, but it will always have a special place in our hearts as the Summer Capital of the Philippines. A four- to five-hour drive from Manila, Baguio can be easily accessed via the NLEX. Don’t forget to try the famous strawberry taho!

5. Baler, Aurora

If you want an action-filled weekend, go to Baler, Aurora. You can learn how to surf in any of the resorts along Sabang Bay, or enjoy its breaking waves if you’re an advanced surfer. If that’s not your cup of tea, you can just sample their delicious seafood and local delicacies.

Stay Safe, Drive Safely

Whether you’re renting a van or taking out a friend’s new car, you have to make sure that the car you’re going to use is in top condition. Before you hit the road, check if everything is working as it should. If you don’t own a car like me, you probably don’t have an idea where to start. I don’t even know which end is up!

I’m a person of simple tastes and wants. All I’ve ever wanted since I was 12 was to have my own room where I can display my notebook collection. When I was 16, I was content to stay in bed and write in my journal. At 22, I thought I needed nothing more than classical music and a bowl of spaghetti.
