If you’re up for a challenge and are looking for a more adventurous getaway, then Nalayag Peak or Lalayag Monolith in Lobo, Batangas is a great way to sneak in some exercise while still enjoying a city escape.

San Vicente, Palawan

When people say "Palawan", it's always El Nido, Coron, or Puerto Princesa that come to mind. The town of San Vicente is located on the northwestern part of the island which is the home of the longest white sand beach in the Philippines appropriately named "Long Beach". Other than that, San Vicente has plenty to offer for the wayward travellers. Go Island hopping, camp at Inaladelan Isand, take a long stoll down the long beach, or trek to the waterfalls.
