December 8, 2018 UDOU Team
It’s the second week of December! Have you planned out your family Christmas vacation yet? If not, that’s okay! Cause we’ve listed down 5 awesome places on where to take your family this Christmas Season!
Yes! It’s that time of the year we’ve all been waiting for. Christmas season is here! Now we have time to spend with our loved ones! Hooray! But have you figured out where to take them? Maybe we can help you. Here are 5 places where you can take your family this yuletide season.
Seda NUVALI, Laguna
Seda NUVALI is located at Lakeside Evozone, Nuvali Boulevard, Don Jose, Santa Rosa, 4026 Laguna. It is part of the Nuvali eco-city development. The hotel is the perfect place for a family vacation because there are amenities for everyone to enjoy. There’s a game room and children’s playroom for the kids, club lounge and spa services for the moms and dads, and a big pool with a scenic view of the lake for everyone! Rooms are beautifully decorated and well-equipped and rates start at P4,117 per night for 2 adults and 2 children (0-12 y/o) with breakfast buffet included. If you wish to spend your Christmas and/or New Year’s Eve in the hotel, you can enjoy a scrumptious Special Holiday buffet at the hotel’s restaurant for only P1,200++ (December 24th and 31st 6 PM to 10 PM).
Boracay reopened last October after being closed for rehabilitation for 6 months. It is an island in Aklan that is well-known for its white sand beaches and a long list of activities you can enjoy with the entire family. You can do parasailing, ATV, Flyfish, listen to live music, pig out, and more! There is something for everybody! But if you’re the chill type of family and just want to relax, then you can just lay by the 4km picturesque beach, breathe in the fresh air, and get a bit of tan… and you’re all set!
Mag-aso Falls, Bohol
Hidden in Antequera, Bohol is a magical place where you and your family can unwind and refresh. Mag-aso falls are twin waterfalls located at the bottom of a deep gorge. To get there, you just have to pay 2 barangay fees and go down a 197-step staircase and voila! A scenic view of stunning waterfalls surrounded by turquoise water is right in front of you! This little piece of paradise is not usually a part of tour packages so there’s a good chance that you can have the place to yourself! Just make sure to go there when it’s not raining because the rocks and the stairs going down gets really slippery when wet.
Crown Regency Hotel, Cebu
Crown Regency Hotel is another great place to go to with the family this holiday season. It is located at Osmeña Blvd, Cebu City, Cebu. Aside from the 4-star hotel’s world-class service and exceptional rooms and amenities, it is also the home of one of Cebu’s awesome tourist spots, the Sky Experience Adventure! Get your blood pumping as you and your family try the world’s first Edge Coaster, the Sky Walk Extreme, and the world’s first urban zip line, the Tower Zip. The room rates start at P4,417.50 per night with breakfast buffet included.
Giant Lanter Festival, Pampanga
Giant Lantern Festival in Pampanga starts every second week of December. It a great place to bring your children to so that they may learn a piece of Philippine history and a taste of Filipino culture. Originally, the festival was held at Bacolor. But when Pampanga’s provincial capital was transferred to San Fernando back in 1904, the festival followed. Before, the festival was a religious tradition that Pampangueños would do during the holiday season. They would make small parols and bring it to the church when doing simbang gabi until the 24th. Now, 15 feet of colorful and spectacular parols are put up on display for people to appreciate. It’s never out of style to have a fun and educational vacation!
