3 Things to do With the Group for the Holy Week

With a minimum of 4 non-working holidays, the Holy Week is the perfect time to get away from the city. Tagaytay hotels or Batangas resorts are ideal places to go to during this time.


You can easily find places for quiet contemplation in the area, such as the quaint Don Bosco Chapel On the Hill.

During the Holy Week, it is easier to plan group or family trips, thanks mainly to aligned schedules. It is very important to be with the people that you love so you can celebrate these holy days together. Here are some things you can do with your group during the Holy Week:


Go on a Road Trip

Just driving outside of the city can do you a lot of good. Replacing your regular views of buildings and billboards with something greener or bluer can refresh your soul.

One of the religious vows Catholics usually observe during the Holy Week is the Visita Iglesia. If you plan on taking on the Tagaytay-Nasugbu, Batangas route, you can definitely hit two birds with one stone.

Churches such as the popular Caleruega Church and St. Anthony de Padua can be found along the way.

No matter what religion you have, observing traditions with your loved ones can strengthen your bond.

Find a Peaceful Place to Stay

Sometimes, our own homes can be chaotic that we can’t find a moment of peace there. It is always helpful to stay at a different place, especially with our friends and families, for a change of pace.

Staying at an accommodation in Tagaytay or Batangas is a smart thing to do. It’s fairly close to the metro yet still provides plenty of options for quiet escapes. Here are 2 properties you may want to consider for your Holy Week or even just a weekend escape:
