City locations for vacation homes

Having your own vacation home certainly has its perks. If you’ve decided to invest in a holiday home for all its tempting benefits, the next step is to choose a location. For the city dweller, it is sometimes difficult to tear yourself away from the glamour of the city life. Consider these city locations for your vacation home. 

If you’re one for the hustle and bustle of the city life and would not want to be away from it for long, Cebu City could be the ideal vacation home location.

Tagaytay City

Tagaytay City is just a quick drive from Metro Manila, making it a great vacation home location. Chances are, the nearer your vacation home is to your residential house, the more time you have for the holiday home. 

Tagaytay has a slightly cooler climate than Metro Manila and offers a scenic view of one of the most iconic spots in the Philippines, the Taal Volcano Island. 

Baguio City

The tropical climate in the Philippines calls for a cool vacation experience. Dubbed as the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio City is situated on a high altitude, making it eight degrees cooler on average than lowlands in the Philippines. 

Over the years, Baguio City has become a bustling metropolis in its own right. Approximately 250 km away from Manila, it is a long six to eight hour drive from the city, but the cool climate, picturesque views and local culture may well be worth it. 

Cebu City

If you’re one for the hustle and bustle of the city life and would not want to be away from it for long, Cebu City could be the ideal vacation home location. Cebu is a thriving trade and commerce center in the Visayas region and is often thought of as the second city of the Philippines. 

Filipino-Spanish heritage lies deep in the culture of Cebu, evident in the Filipino-Spanish heritage buildings and sites such as Magellan’s Cross.
