Where did the time go? One moment it was all about New Year’s resolution, on a whim, it was all about Valentine’s dates, now, a second later, we’re bordering the start of the brightest season of the year - Summer!

Brave the upcoming summer heat as we soon hit the month of March with these 4 invigorating places around the Philippines.

Lake Mirror

The most idyllic place for a picturesque capture of Mt. Apo’s towering heights; when clouds don't cloak this area in Davao Del Sur, Lake Mirror shows an upside down image of the highest mountain in the Philippines onto its lily pond. The best time to catch this breathtaking view? Early at 7 a.m. The lake is also perfect if you’re up for a day fishing, swimming, or a mellowed down afternoon, and kayaking.
