10 Things You Should Take With You on Your Summer Road Trip

Bring these must-haves on your grand summer expedition.

(SPOT.ph) With so many awesome spots just a few hours away from Manila, there’s practically no excuse to not go on a road trip this summer. Even Dominic Roque, one of the brightest young stars of today, manages to carve out a little time from his jam-packed schedule to explore nearby locales every now and then.

Take your cue from Dominic and take these must-haves on your grand summer expedition:

1. A pair of shades.
A great pair of shades protects your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays while upping your style ante. Dark wayfarers like Dominic’s are a classic, but you can also go for trendier lenses.



2. A baseball cap.
A classic cap is the easiest way to accessorize your outfit--just slap it on your head and you’re good to go. Great headgear also keeps your head cool in this summer heat.



3. A great camera.
Make it a point to capture Mother Nature’s beauty while on the road. The ASUS ZenPad S 8.0’s 8 MP rear PixelMaster camera is more than capable of documenting all the fun adventures you’ll have on your trip.



4. A canine companion.
More and more travelers are bringing their furry friends along to hikes and road trips, and for a good reason: Dogs make for a good companion in any situation.



5. A pasyal playlist.
No road trip would be complete without a great playlist. Hook up the ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 to your car’s sound system to play your favorite songs on the road, and let its DTS-HD Premium surround sound speakers wow you as you approach your destination.



6. A Swiss knife.
This handy tool takes so little space, performs so many functions, and barely weighs anything. You never know when a blade (or a corkscrew) can come in handy during your trip.



7. A movie you haven’t seen yet.
Immerse yourself in a great movie and you’ll be at your destination before you know it. The ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 has an ultra-sharp 2K IPS Display and ASUS Visual Master Technology, giving a true to life feel to your movie experience.



8. Lots of food.
What’s a road trip without something to munch on? Stash some chips or candy, or indulge in Pinoy snack favorites like Dominic’s favorite camote cue.



9. A neck pillow.
It’s not easy to find a comfortable resting place for your head when on the road. Solve this problem by bringing along a comfy pillow that can provide ample support for your neck.



10. An all-around entertainment gadget.
Dominic uses the ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 to keep his Facebook, Instagram, and SnapChat updated on the road. Its Intel Atom Z3580 processor and 4GB RAM allows you to take all the photos and videos you want, Face Swap with your road trip buddies, and play your favorite games on the go.



It’s obvious why the ASUS ZenPad S8.0 is Dominic’s perfect road trip companion--it’s powerful and functional without sacrificing aesthetics. This 8-inch beauty is only 6.6 mm thin and weighs just 289g, making it portable enough to stash in your bag at a moment’s notice.

Its design carries modern influences and a simple, clean look that gives it a universal and stylish appeal. These elements are inspired by ASUS's Zen design philosophy of balancing beauty and strength.




It’s an 8-inch tablet with a diamond hairline design and leather like finish that is only 6.6 mm thin, weighs just 289g and has a 74% screen-to-body ratio. It also offers a rich HDTV tablet experience with its 2K IPS Display, high-resoultion photos (8MP PixelMaster Camera), and comes bundled with a free ZenClutch, among other things.

The best part? The ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 is powered by the Intel® Atom™ Z3580 processor* (quad-core, 64-bit) and is the world's first 4GB RAM tablet, which means faster web surfing, smoother video playback, greater gaming experiences, and multi-tasking capabilities that don’t leave you hanging.
