Have you had the chance to travel last summer?
If not, take a leave from work and enjoy a couple of days off to get over the stress brought by the first half of the year.
We have compiled some of the best places to go to in the month of July!

What’s Up: Every July, Bohol celebrates the Sandugo Festival, that commemorates the Treaty of Friendship between Datu Sikatuna and Spanish conquistador, Miguel Lopez de Legazpi (History class, remember?).

What to visit: The famous Chocolate Hills. Visit the Tarsier Conservatory. Have lunch at Loboc Floating Restaturant.
