3 Handpicked Places for the Ultimate Vacation with Your Family

Now that the long weekends and -ber months are near, planning out-of-town vacations are in order. This can include booking family vacations in Palawan, a widely popular tourist destination in the Philippines.

Other places can be the white-sand haven of Boracay or the nearby mountain city of Tagaytay. After all, the best time to unwind is when official non-working holidays happen right after the weekend.

If you’re still planning your trip, here are the top three places to spend a vacation with your family. These spots not only have relaxing surroundings but also hotels with affordable direct-booking rates for your out-of-town family break.

3. Boracay

Astoria Boracay

Hitting the beach is always a great idea on a long vacation. You get to escape the usual urban confines and enjoy a relaxing scenery of sunny shores and blue waters.

Depending on your tastes, you can go for calm beaches or lively places with lots of parties.

One place that provides both is the award-winning island of Boracay. Here, your family can book hotels like Astoria Boracay, which are located between the island’s Station 1 and 2.

This strategic area allows you to enjoy a quiet retreat or indulge in the variety of water sports that the island offers.

2. Tagaytay

Anya Resort Tagaytay

If a mountain getaway is your preferred option, then look no further than Tagaytay. While Baguio is Metro Manila’s top option to escape the summer heat, the former is closer to the city.

Much like its northern counterpart, Tagaytay offers a scenic mountain retreat. The cool weather is also a plus for any vacationer.

These make it an ideal destination for family vacations, especially for large groups. You can even take advantage of seasonal packages that hotels in Tagaytay offer, especially if you’re looking to get an affordable deal.

1. Palawan

Princesa Garden Island Resort and Spa in Palawan

In addition to tranquil beaches, Palawan also offers a wealth of natural scenery. If beaches and parties aren’t enough, you can also explore rivers, forests, and caves within this island. This is why Palawan is known as the last frontier of the Philippines.

One ideal place to book your vacation is a hotel in Puerto Princesa. It’s a place where beachgoers can enjoy sandbars, water sports, and nature tours.

Some hotels like Princesa Garden Island Resort and Spa even offer free round-trip airport transfers and seasonal packages to make your trip even more convenient.

One of these packages even lets you reserve a minimum of 2 nights to get a 25% discount on regular room rates.
