Trying Out New Things this Summer

May 23, 2019

There's just no denying that summer is the best time of the year to have some fun. With perfect, sunny weather and little to no chance of rain, there are a ton of different summer activities you can do that aren't possible during the rest of the year. Combine that with a longer vacation season, and you have a recipe for some of the best adventuring this year! If you aren't sure where to go or what to do, then check out this short list below of things you can try out this summer.

Hiking
Due to the lack of rain and ample vacation days, you'll find that a lot of people will try out their first hike during the summer. Hiking is a great way to appreciate nature and satisfy your sense of adventure all at the same time, and there are tons of great trails in the Philippines in the Philippines for beginners. However, make sure you prepare adequately for the hot weather! Follow tips like these from the Modern Hiker, and you'll be ready for some of the highest, most breathtaking, Insta-worthy sights yet.

The Arts
The summer is a great season for appreciating the arts, and if you want to try something new then checking out the local art scene is a great idea! You can try joining one of the many arts workshops held by institutions all over the country, which include dance, painting, and acting. Or, you could try spending your money on a new artistic experience rather than a simple movie. Daydreaming in paradise has a primer on immersive theater in the Philippines that's sure to bring a brand new experience to the table. They list a number of local productions that are breaking ground in theater and shouldn’t be missed this year.

Festival Season
You know what they say: sun's out, guns out! The warmer months mean a proliferation of summer music and arts festivals, and there's no better chance for fun under the sun than the festival circuit. Whether you're checking out your favorite artists or doing a few yoga or art workshops, this is the season to do it. If you've never tried an arts and music
festival before, you've still got a chance. There's one coming up on May 31 to June 2 at Crystal Beach in Zambales. Dust off your sandals and give it a go!

Travel Somewhere New
Long summer days and even longer vacation leaves are the perfect excuse to get out and go someplace new. Many people schedule their long trips during the warmer months, and there's no reason you shouldn't, either! If you feel like you don't exactly have the budget for a trip abroad, then take the chance to enjoy the sights in the Philippines. Manila Bulletin reports that over 42 million Filipinos are domestic touristswhich means you'll be in good company as you go exploring what the country has to offer.
