Right now, it is important to stay at home and continue practicing social distancing. We’ll get better chances of flattening the curve if we follow safety procedures. And of course, for people who miss going out, we need to #stayhomesowecantraveltomorrow.
Maybe you are looking out your window, wishing for a different view? For now, you can rely on the internet to give you a window where you can see what awaits you in the future.
If you are longing for the beach, why not consider going to Subic once we are in the clear? Here are 3 reasons why you should go:
1. It’s just a short ride away
With the smooth expressways up north, it’s just a 2 to 3-hour drive to Subic. Subic is definitely one of the most accessible “summer getaways,” especially to people coming from Manila. There’s no need to hop on a plane or a boat, just a short car or bus ride is all it takes.
2. Duty-free shopping!
You may have missed the physical act of shopping (grocery-shopping not included!). Thanks to its special economic zone and freeport, Subic has several stores that offer tax-free goods. You can treat yourself to branded or “imported” items for less.
3. There are plenty of things to do
If you are traveling with the family, the kids might be especially excited to visit Zoobic Safari or Ocean Adventure. Maybe you and your barkada want to experience an adrenaline rush? Why not check out Inflatable Island? You can definitely find loads of places to visit and things to do at Subic.
In fact, you can even find a resort where you might end up staying there during your entire Subic trip! Checkout ACEA Subic Bay set on the former Dungaree Beach (www.aceasubicbay.com).
This resort boasts a beachfront location and has an amazing view. Even better, you can actually enjoy said view from a balcony. (Tip: Book a Deluxe Sea View room)
Guests of ACEA Subic Bay will be happy to find a dozen water sports and activities offered at the beach. This resort also has swimming pools for kids and adults, karaoke rooms, game rooms, and more!
Although most hotels and resorts are not allowed to accommodate guests during the ECQ, you can actually make reservations in advance at ACEA Subic Bay. Just visit www.aceasubicbay.com to make your online bookings.
