10 Vacation Spots Near Manila for Your Next Reunion

Heading out with a big group? No problem!


(SPOT.ph) Long holidays are the perfect time for reunions with family and friends. People come home from abroad, vacations are extended, and you can finally sit back, relax, and drink the day away with people you love. But it can get a little bit stressful when you’re a big group looking for a place that can accommodate everyone.


We round up private bed-and-breakfasts and resorts that not only fit 10 people and more, but also provide a number of activities for the whole gang.
