8. Paano Kita Iibigin (2007)

Destination: A run-down resort in Zambales

How they got there: Fresh from getting fired from her job, single mom Martee (Regine Velasquez) and her asthmatic son head to Zambales for some quiet time.

The tale of the trip: During their stay at the resort owned by the rebellious and handsome Lance (Piolo Pascual), Martee discovers they just got evicted from their apartment. She is then hired as the resort manager. Determined to establish a new home for her son and increase the place’s clientele, she does everything she can even if it causes her to clash with Lance. But the more time Martee spends working with Lance, the more she discovers what’s underneath his complicated façade.

What to watch for: Eye candy Piolo Pascual and singer-actress Regine Velasquez’s chemistry in this Joyce Bernal film is undeniable. Also watch for funny woman Eugene Domingo’s spotless comedic acting.

7. Siquijor: Mystic Island (2007)

Destination: Siquijor

How they got there: A crew, working on a primetime show featuring horror stories based on real life, visits the mystic island of Siquijor to shoot some footage.

The tale of the trip: When the team couldn't get the footage they want and runs out of time, they agree to stage a possession and exorcism. Back in Manila, strange things start to happen to each of them, and the answers can only be found in the Siquijor footage.

What to watch for: Though a scarefest isn't the ideal vacation, this one's for all you thrill-seekers. The chilling scenes in the flick will remind you never to mess with the supernatural, whether or not you’re a believer.
