5 places to enjoy your weekend getaway


I have been planning to take a short trip over the weekend but my grad studies and work has taken the best of those time for me at the moment and it did not stop me from pushing my luck to plan a short trip that I once had experience. Planning a trip can be daunting and scary at the same time but weekend trips are most likely to prevail when the situation calls for it. I usually choose around 5 places for a weekend getaway before I book.


5 places to enjoy your weekend getaway


I'm a bit of a planner for the past few years. That's why it is important for me to have a handy selection on where to go and what to do even in short notice. Leaving the city at dawn to catch and experience your first activity.

1. Oslob Whale Watching

This will be around a 2-4 hour trip from the city to Oslob. The first couple of times I had visited there was very exciting and it didn't bother me to be sitting on the car for such a long time despite the traffic flow is suave. Be there before 6:00am and surely you will be one of those people to enjoy the breeze, sea, and whale watching before the sunrises or you'll have a sunburn which this whale watching activity lasts only for 15minutes. Sorry, but you need to fall in line once again to get the next boat ride if you can't get enough watching the beautiful sea creature.


2. Dakong Bato, Dalaguete

Going home would be your last option for the day after you traveled for a couple of hours in Oslob and having a place to stay is one of the foremost important and just somewhere you can just sleep but a place where you (and whoever is with you) can enjoy your "me" and "we" time. This hotel is surely a place of art and "Little Cuba" because of its beautiful mural. Good private rooms and villas are available, 3 swimming pools, cafe's and restaurant to choose from and even swimming at the beach is possible plus if you enjoy taking selfies and lifestyle photos this place is for you.


3.  Simala Church

On your way home, If you had the plan to drop by a church, One of the attractions that southern part of Cebu overs is their religious attractions in going to Simala Church. This gothic inspired castle in the medieval times is worthy of a visit for those who are curious and most importantly to have some spiritual time which is open for everyone. If you are a type of person who has to go to church a 3:00pm mass and 6:00pm mass should fit in your schedule.


4. Naga Boardwalk

Before you can reach this place, I'm sure you'll pass in Carcar and they are famous for their fresh chicharron which I could not resist its taste even if I'm not a fan of oily food and that you can bring to Naga Boardwalk while strolling this beautiful place while too many things you can do from eating siomai to playing ball games or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery in the afternoon or at night as cargo ship or ships docked. We used to walk around this area before it has slowly developed and it's something I enjoy visiting since it is near my place.


5. Have a good massage

The cozy spa is located in Plaza Margarita in Lipata, Minglanilla. A friend of mine brought me here as this was her tita's spa and they have a good service and indeed I became one of their patrons as they always had the best service around the area. After a fun-filled activity over the weekend, I look forward to having a well-rested sleep and having a good massage is fulfilling. I suggest you go for a massage place that is nearby your place so it becomes more relaxing. 


Now that the 5 places and activities were in place, do you have anything you'd like to share on your next weekend getaway?
