After months (or even years!) of meticulous preparation for your big day, wouldn't be a nice reward to spend a week in a deluxe villa with a view of the turquoise sea, all to yourselves? It's probably one of the things that a couple really looks forward to, not just to take a rest from all of the happenings, but to get to spend some time with his/her lifetime partner.
Here's a list of the best honeymoon destinations in the Philippines to help you decide:
Tucked in the heart of the Visayas region is Bohol, a tropical getaway where the Chocolate Hills could be found and where the tarsiers hail from. Bohol has that laid back feel, perfect for couples seeking both nature and privacy. Many accommodations in Panglao Island offer luxurious amenities with stunning views of the sea, or even infinity pools right outside the rooms. In Bohol is also Alona Beach, an unspoiled stretch of white sand in Panglao Island which is comparable to that of Boracay.
When in Siargao, you'll literally and figuratively feel like on Cloud 9 as aside from experiencing its well-known surfing spot, it also boasts a really serene atmosphere because it isn't that too crowded yet, unlike the other tourist spots in the country. Get to experience riding with the waves as your first water activity together, or maybe have your "You jump, I jump" moment at the Sugba Lagoon, a site in between mangroves and rock formations in Del Carmen.
In a place where every corner is breathtakingly beautiful, you sure wouldn't run out of love in Batanes. Have that escape before you face your married life duties as you walk through its quiet spots and serene landscapes such as that of the Vayang Rolling Hills, Sabtang Island, and the Nakabuang Arch.
From underground rivers, hidden lagoons, and scuba diving sites to sophisticated villas and beachfront bars, Palawan is the paradise that you deserve to experience before you face the real world as a married couple. Whether you choose to stay in Coron, Puerto Princesa, or El Nido, all three makes Palawan one of the best destinations for honeymooners in the Philippines because of the endless adventures you could experience here.
If you are that chill couple who's into staycations and R&Rs, Tagaytay's the place for you. With the vibes same as Baguio CIty, experience foggy mornings that'll make you feel like teenagers in love as you cuddle and do small talk over hot chocolate. Accommodations here are affordable which may come convenient if you think you've spent so much on your wedding, but still deserve a memorable honeymoon.
Now it's up to you to decide on where that most-awaited honeymoon should take place. No matter where you go, be sure to have fun and enjoy your moments together!

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
