A lot of the 2023 Philippine holidays actually fall on Mondays this year, which mean more long weekends (that we suggest you turn into longer weekends). If we learned anything from 2022, it’s that we deserve those vacations. It was a treat working from wherever we wanted over the pandemic and strict WFH mandates, but there’s nothing quite like not having to lug around your work laptop everywhere you go.


So let this be the year of revenge travel. Apply for those visas and keep an eye out for piso sales. Gas up the car and pack a backpack for a road trip. Start those group messages with friends or family or colleagues. Be a tourist on vacation, not an employee working from Boracay.
