Our supposed-to-be trip to Baguio over the weekend was cancelled due to typhoon Ineng; Kenon Road has been closed to traffic since Friday due to reported landslides. Yes, it was quite disappointing at first but cancellation of out-of-town trips seems to be a normal thing during rainy season.This usually happens to ensure the safety of everyone.

In the Philippines, rainy season (June – November) is the off-peak season also for traveling. A lot of airlines offer cheap flights to different domestic destinations. Same thing goes with luxury hotels and resorts, they offer special rates during these months.

Actually, we really do not have to call off all our travel plans during rainy season. There are a lot of things that we can do during these months.

Ready to say Goodbye to cancelled plans? Promise! They are all safe and fun!
