7 Must-Try Weekend Travel Escapes

7 Must-Try Weekend Travel Escapes

Weekend Travelistas unite! I have compiled all the activities I have done in the past for you to try as well.

Let’s start, shall we?

1. CITY KART

I have suggested this activity to my better half as a  birthday gift, to which he didn’t refuse (of course).

So on a hot Saturday, we brought our competitive selves in City Kart and drove the karts as fast as we can. Well, as far as what my feet can push, really. Read our experience here.

You can drop by City Kart’s website as well as their FB page. Or you can text them at 0915-447-1060 just be mindful of their opening hours.

Location: Circuit, Makati

2. ART IN ISLAND

We have checked out this 3D museum where selfies are discouraged as the background is very much necessary.

A recommended treat for the family and couples who are game to pose with the cool art.

Location: Cubao, Quezon City

3. ULTRALIGHT PLANE

Ultralight plane flying? Who knew that hidden in the fields of Pampanga, a 50,000 ft adventure is awaiting for us to be explored? Well, this time, my research skills was on point. Buti nalang.

This pakana of mine was a pre-bday gift to myself. And since I don’t want to do it alone (ang corny naman kasi nun), I had my brother, sister and my beau to tag along.

Did I get nervous? Honestly, I was excited as hell! While in the air, my instructor pointed to me some of the famous spots as Mt Pinatubo and Hacienda Luisita. Read more of our experience here.

You can drop by Angeles City Flying Club’s website as well as their Facebook page here. Or you can text them at 0918-920-3039 / 0916-456-8588.

Location: Sta. Maria Magalang, Pampanga


4. MT. PINATUBO TREKKING

Go hiking with friends? Check! Congratulations to us as we ‘fashionably’ conquered the 14 km hike to Mt. Pinatubo!

One activity to check off my bucket list. With our ‘young’ age, we proved that trekking can still be done.


5. LAS CASAS FILIPINAS

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is an alfresco and a heritage park at the same time. Situated in Bagac, Bataan such is an ultimate escape for all the history enthusiasts out there.

We availed of their Express Deal which includes a round trip shuttle service from New World Hotel in Makati to Bagac. Read more here.

Location: Bagac, Bataan

6. PINTO ART MUSEUM

Situated just an hour away from the bustling city of Makati, we decided to check out the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo one lazy Sunday afternoon.

Boasting its 1.3 hectares of modern art space, you may want to be prepared to be exhausted from walking, looking and of course, taking a lot of pictures.

Location: Antipolo, Rizal

7. BINONDO FOODTRIP

Binondo is said to be the oldest Chinatown in the world. It is walking distance from Divisoria and for someone who doesn’t know how to commute in Manila like me, it is only 1 GrabCar or Uber away.

We availed Old Manila Walks’ Binondo Food Wok tour. Email them at fun@oldmanilawalks.com to reserve your slots. Read our foodtrip escapade here.

Location: Binondo, Manila

N.B. Be patient though. This is a growing list and I will be adding future adventures so as not to be contained to just 7 activities.
