Summer on a Budget

What I like most about the Philippines is you have tons of things to do and places to go without having to spend much money. Summer is approaching and I know everyone has set their sights on Boracay or Palawan but both can be on the expensive side even if you do some cost-cutting by using cheap lodging facilities. These destinations can also get very crowded during peak seasons.

If you're exploring some alternatives here are a couple tips for you:

1) Go to Ibilik and browse for condo accomodation rentals. You can rent it with your barkada and use their amenities (pools, gym). No need to buy expensive meals since you can use the kitchen to make your own meals. Rates are usually around Php 800 to 1,500 / night. Cut down transportation cost and look for condo rentals near your place.

2) Go for day trips to Country clubs. Usually these places are for exclusive to members only but due to the low-membership subscription, most of the country clubs offer guest entrance fees. Some examples of these country clubs are the Palms Country Club in Alabang and Mills Country Club in Canlubang, Laguna.

Well that's just some ideas you might want to ponder about when spending your hard earned money and precious vacation leave for this year.
