The Philippine’s Family- friendly Destinations that Surpass the Hype

The Philippines is becoming a hugely popular tropical destination for both locals and foreigners.  Whether you are traveling solo or with a family, you won’t see a shortage of tourist spots that wow the young and old.

Here’s a list of the top family-friendly destinations in the country:

Cebu
Regarded as the oldest city in Philippines, Cebu City is one of the most popular tourist destinations today. It has a rich historical background, but despite its years of existence, the city has managed to catch on with the times. Your children can now appreciate the old charming beauty of the city as they visit museums like Museo Pambata, which is a kids’ museum. Crown Regency Hotel, one of the tallest complexes in the Philippines, has an exciting roller coaster ride at its top. There’s also the Sky Experience Adventure where you can view the city at night together with your loved ones. Mactan Island, which is a few minutes away from the city center, also boasts its premium beach resorts and adventure sites.

Bohol
This breathtakingly beautiful island is home to the stunning Chocolate hills. This chocolate mound-like cluster of over 1000 hills is the top tourist destination of Bohol, and you have the option of sightseeing on an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) or a group van. There are also hot balloon rides, from which you can see the chocolate hills from the sky.  The Chocolate Hills Adventure Park is nearby, offering adventurous activities for the whole family. There is a horde of outdoor activities in the park specifically made for children. 

Away from the hills, there are waterfalls, like Mag-Aso Falls, for the whole family to take a dip. There are also clean, beautiful beaches for children to play in while the rest of the family unwinds. You can also eat out at one of the floating restaurants, like the Loboc Floating Restaurant and the Busai Monark Floating Reston after taking a cruise down the Loboc River. Or, have a buffet-style meal while floating down the river. The Loboc Ecotourism Adventure Park boasts cable cars that you can ride in to have an aerial view of the park. 


Palawan 
Tranquil, quiet, sparsely populated and with a beautiful seascape, Palawan Island is simply the place to be. The family can engage in water sports in any of the beaches that line the whole stretch, go island-hopping to discover more tropical secrets or enjoy the inland treats of the island. Palawan is also becoming a hotspot for retirees and the high-class society looking for summer homes and beach retreat properties. With Zipmatch, a Philippine real estate marketplace, finding a piece of paradise in and out of the city is more convenient. There, you can also find properties in other cities across the country.

Zambales
With a thick forest cover, the green landscape throughout Zambales province provides a tranquil backdrop for you and your family. You can go hiking on Mt Tapulao, or snorkeling in its top-class beaches. There are a number of coves which make the beach side perfect for camping. San Antonio is particularly perfect for a camping trip. 

Subic Bay is a family- friendly destination, especially the Ocean Adventure Theme Park. With its array of shows, aquariums and a host of animals like sea lions and dolphins, this spot has something that would thrill both the kids and adults. 

While family bonding can take place anywhere else, discovering more of the country’s local favorites together is another level of love and adventure waiting to happen.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
