Whether you’re single or in a relationship, celebrating Valentine’s Day has always been something that we look forward to. While most of us might be thinking of dining and staying in a nice hotel to make this day romantic and memorable, looking for the best staycation venue can be challenging.
It’s all right! MNLtoday.ph listed some other activities that you might want to consider in celebrating this love month.
- Visit food parks
Food parks have cropped out in the Metro in the past few years. They swarm at accessible places like Quezon City, Taguig and Marikina.
What’s good about food parks is that you get to choose from a wide variety of cuisines in one place. Since there are more foods to choose from, you and your loved ones don’t have to fight over what to eat on that special day anymore. You may savor whatever piques your interest until your gastronomic cravings are all satisfied.
- Explore Pampanga
There’s a great number of impressive sights among the provinces in North Luzon. But if you’re looking for a quick drive from Manila, then you may want to explore Pampanga. The Culinary Capital of the Philippines is not only rich in delicious dishes, but also history and culture.
Two of the best places you may check are the Philippine Hot Air Balloon Festival and Sky Ranch Pampanga, located behind SM City Pampanga.
- Take your beau to an Enchanting Dinner in the Sky
