Five tips on how to enjoy the long weekend without going outside Metro Manila


Long weekends are a luxury that most people long for, especially those who spend most of their days stuck in front of screens on their office desks. And since a year can only give us limited days to enjoy a vacation without feeling guilty about work responsibilities, it’s a must to make the most of it. Here are ways on how to make your staycation worthwhile even without going outside the borders of Metro Manila.

Binge-watch and chill.

A full-length film usually lasts up to two hours while a single episode of a TV series has a standard length of 30 minutes, meaning watching them on workdays is almost impossible. Long weekends are the perfect time to catch up on movies and episodes you missed and who knows, you might finish an entire series just in one sitting?


Thanks to modern times, we now have more options on how we can stream our favorite movies and TV series anywhere we go. An apt choice is the Realme 3 which carries an HD+ 6.2-inch screen in 1520 x 720 pixels, enough to let you have a seamless viewing experience.

Ease your stress away with a soothing spa.

There is no effective way to refresh your tired body other than rewarding yourself with a soothing spa. Aside from helping you have a sound sleep throughout the night, a spa also has health benefits like lessening the tenseness of your muscles and improving blood circulation.


Dip into the pool.

Long weekends are also the best time to escape the scorching heat of the sun by enjoying the cool waters. You can also try out different pool games and activities to maximize the fun.


Dig in to delightful meals.

What’s a staycation without treating yourself to a sumptuous meal? Stop worrying about calorie count for the meantime and just enjoy the taste of your favorite meals and snacks.


Now that everyone is into taking photos of their food to share it on social media, why not join the fun by capturing pictures of your food, too, and make them even look delectable using Realme 3’s Food mode which runs using AI technology.

Take long walks.

Lastly, cap off your day by exploring the city at night. Remember, while most people spend the long weekend out in different tourist spots, it can also be the perfect opportunity to appreciate a quiet me-time.


Whether its a day on the beach or inside a cozy room, make every moment of your vacation memorable by taking photographs. Speaking of which, an apt device is the Realme 3 which despite its very affordable tag starting at PhP 6,990, packs specs and features that can keep up with you anywhere you go, like its dual camera setup and a 4230mAh battery which can last up to 12 hours of continuous use.
