5 Must-See Rest Houses in the Philippines
Welcome the summer season with these out-of-town homes
When we were younger, we would often dream about the month of March—the start of our three month-long summer vacation. We would look forward to watching cartoons all morning, riding our bikes to the neighborhood halo-halo stand, and basically doing nothing for the rest of the day.
Now that many of us have started working, we no longer have the luxury of a long escape from our respective jobs. While we long for more carefree days when we can be happily idle and unproductive, we now have less time for ourselves and more responsibilities to take on.
If you would like to take a little break from worries at work or at home, here are rest houses that will help put you in a summer-ready mood.
