The Philippines, Perfect Winter Destination?

Picking fruits in La Union

So winter is fast approaching (or here already!) and you want to go to the warmest climate you can find. What about adding the warmest smile and hospitality too to your experience?

We’ve listed down things you may want to do for us to help you get the most out of your WINTER VACATION so let’s get on with it. (Editor’s Note: None of the images and videos are claimed to be the property of Crossroads Hostel Manila)

First, where do you want to go? It’s the hardest question. There’s so many beach destinations all over the world and there’s only so much time to use so let’s make it simple: ASIA or LATIN AMERICA? You may not know it but Asia, where The Philippines is located is where you can experience some of the most beautiful beaches in the world but The Philippines boasts of the longest coastlines you can find anywhere in the tropical paradise! 32,289 kilometers of coast that includes beaches, bays, gulfs, and islets where one can just choose a place to stay where to spoil yourself of sun, sand, and seafood. Ahhh! 

Second, how long is your vacation? Spend it with us in The Philippines. Aside from beaches, we have mountain ranges, terraces, cliffs, ravines, waterfalls, lakes, beaches, cold springs, hot springs, mangroves, lush greens, exotic birds, colorful corals and fishes, animals, and even the sweetest fruits (and smelliest too! Hahaha!) you can find.

Third, where to start? START with us at Crossroads Hostel Manila! Where else? We will provide you with the utmost assistance we can to make your trip here in The Philippines, the most enjoyable one. How? We will not just help you get contact information of many of the tour operators, agencies, and resort owners – we will give you honest advice where to go and what to see with the budget you have made for yourself. Just give us a day or two to help you get the ground running. This way, you will make the most out of your Philippines tour destination the more memorable one!

Start your winter vacation with us! We’ll take care of you.

Do you want a sample of The Philippines to get a taste of what’s to come of your stay here? Check these beautiful video posts made by travel bloggers of some of the most beautiful beach and underwater destinations here in The Philippines:

  • Boracay


Boracay is a national treasure, it was shut down for 6 months to rehabilitate.We are one of the lucky few who got to experience Boracay in its almost pristine state. It is a beautiful place yet people still throwing their trash anywhere.To those who will visit its grand opening this coming October 26 please please please stop being a bad tourist, pick up your trash and be responsible.
