10 Airbnbs for Your Last-Minute Staycation in Manila
It's not too late to book a sanity break.
(SPOT.ph) Back in the day, the break meant connecting your spiritual self with the Lord and let's face it, finding ways to keep occupied lest you die of boredom. Though perhaps by now, everyone agrees that the Holy Week break is that time of the year when everyone shuts down for a much-needed break. While most make plans as early as possible, there are those that tend to leave things at the last minute, case in point: you who might be reading this article.
Long weekend trips tend to take place outside of the Metro and while we do love ourselves a bit of sun and surf, most if not all the good spots are already fully booked in advance. Luckily, your Holy Week plans don’t have to take a pause as you can have your staycation and much-needed rest in Metro Manila.
