Feast like a king in Davao
Dig into some of the Philippines’ best produce, and indulge in some locally-made cheeses at the Malagos Garden Resort or get your durian fix at Bankerohan Market where you could also pick up unique treats such as durian-flavoured coffee or cheesecake. Travellers in August will also have the chance to witness Kadayawan Festival, celebrating the vast natural resources of the area and the abundant yearly harvest, a must attend for foodies of all ages.
Make merry in Manila
From high-end shopping centres like Greenbelt in Makati to thrift stores known as ukay-ukays, the shopping in Manila never disappoints. After a full-day of shopping, grab an ice-cold San Miguel at Roxas Boulevard and toast to one of the best sunsets the city has to offer. Travellers looking for something different can visit in December for the ‘The Metro Manila Film Festival’, an annual celebration of the Filipino talents in the movie industry and get close to the stars during the famous float parade.
Party the night away in Cebu
Let your hair down in Cebu and dance the night away at Mango Square or Cebu IT Park, some of the most happening spots in the city. Or head to the Ibiza Beach Club at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu where both tourists and locals party into the early hours of the morning. Alternatively, park yourself at one of the lively bars around town and unwind to some live music as you mingle with friendly locals.
Bring on the fun in Clark
Hold an outdoor barbeque party for your family and friends at one of Clark’s many open spaces and spend some quality time together. Looking for something a little different?

From hot air balloons and kites to paragliding and aircraft fly-bys, there is sure to be something for even the most passionate aviator.
Revel in colourful culture in Iloilo
Walk amidst historic architecture and learn more about the vibrant past of the old Queen City of the South. Be part of the annual Dinagyang Festival in January 2017, one of the Philippines’ most lively festivals marked with flamboyant costumes and traditional dances. Visit the Church of San Jose, said to be the birthplace of the Dinagyang festival. Before heading home, swing by JM Basa Street, a shopping hub frequented by locals.
