  • 5 Things to Do in the City for Holy Week
  • We know not everyone living in the Philippines is a Catholic and/or observes the Lenten season. No one is required to but because it is a largely Catholic country with the Holy Week as a regular holiday, what is there for you to do this long weekend?

    Stay at home and do a movie binge watch

    Resting can still be considered as doing something. You relax your mind and body at the comfort of your home so it’s a good opportunity catch up on your shows. TV or online streaming or just checking out what’s on air could be very relaxing to many.

    It’s never too late to eat new things

    For the foodie, there are some options for you to do your food crawl or challenges. While many establishments will be closed it’s not impossible to try cooking for yourself, a new recipe or even a new restaurant. There are several restaurants open for the Holy Week!

    Do the Visita Iglesia at the comfort of the Walled City

    Manila is full of historical landmarks, churches and most special of all is Intramuros, The Walled City. Recently launching a project for the Holy Week, the local government is opening its doors to those who will do the Visita Iglesia for the first time in many years.

    Staycation. Definitely.

    Imagine getting rewarded for staying within the city while everyone is out on the beach or to pilgrimages. There are events and promotions that will run through the Lenten season by simply booking a room and letting the hotel pamper you. Bring your family to somewhere new today!
