After much hype and anticipation for the long vacation just around the corner, you suddenly realize that... YOU. HAVEN'T. PLANNED. ANYTHING. So what's a QT to do? Well, don't worry, we've listed some popular destinations to help you fill out those free days. So pump up your playlist, bring out your camera and gas up your car. We're hitting the road!

Manila Ocean Park
Perfect for both local and foreign tourists, Manila Ocean Park is the perfect place to see rich and amazing marine life. Adults and children alike will enjoy the Shark Encounter, Jellies Exhibit and so much more! There's also the hawker-inspired Makan Makan Asian Food Village for some Southeast Asian fare. And when you're exhausted from the day's adventures, sleep easy in the aqua-themed hotel, Hotel H20.

Solaire Casino & Resorts
The newest and certainly, the flashiest destination in our short list, Solaire Resort & Casino recently opened its doors and this might be the perfect time to visit it! With all the malls closed this holiday and the usual metro traffic down to a minimum, there's nothing stopping you from checking out what all the hype is about.

Pampanga for the San Pedro Cutud Lenten Rites
And last but not least, for those looking to incorporate a little religious reflection into their Holy Week, visit the San Pedro Cutud Lenten Rites and watch a re-enactment of Christ's Passion and Death. Not for the faint of heart, what makes the one in Pampanga especially brutal is that its passion play culminates with 3 penitents' actually being nailed to a wooden cross.
