‘Tis the season for summer sunshine! Time for sand, sea, the beach, and adventure. Get into a sunny mood with these 10 Reasons Why Summer Rocks!
1. School’s Out
Lucky for you if you’re still in school, but if not—there’s always less traffic and going on a vacation to look forward too.
2. Pool Parties!
It isn’t summer without taking a dip! Gather your friends and cool off at the beach or a pool resort!
3. Getting a Tan
Forget your whitening products for a second. You’re simply not hip without a bikini tan line this season. Whether you make it (to the beach) or the just fake it (with a spray tan), a sun-kissed glow is a must. Don’t forget to still use sunscreen though!
4. Wearing Shorts and Dresses
Show off your tan lines in relaxed clothing like cute shorts and breezy dresses. Go bright or pastel colored and ooze the same radiance as the season.
5. Visit a Park
Summer is also the best season to visit your public parks! Take a day trip to Paco Park or La Mesa Ecopark and you’ll be surprised at how much fun (and IG-worthy photos) you’ll have!
6. Exploring the Outdoors
Summer is also the best season to explore the Philippines! Go spelunking in Sagada, Canyoneering in Cebu, or climbing the highest peak in the country in Mindanao—there’s simply so much to see.

8. Comfy Clothing
Summer is the best time to let your inner kid out. Wear comfy clothes and have some fun under the sun! Don’t forget to stay hydrated though!
9. Summer Reading
Nothing like staying in and reading this summer! Go through your “To Read” list and live vicariously through books!
Book a ticket and go somewhere you’ve never been before, should be your summer mantra. There’s so much to see in the world and there’s no better time to do it but during summer. Best thing about it, you get to pack light because of the weather—just a pair of shorts, a couple of dresses, and bikinis and you’re set!
