Cheat Sheet: Planning Your Summer Road Trip? Here’s What You Need!

Summer’s just about here and piso fares and seat sales abound. But there’s nothing like a good ol’ roadtrip with your barkada or even the entire family. There are so many beautiful places that are only two to three hours away from Metro Manila. Escape the traffic on the way to the airport and opt for a quick road trip on your next getaway with your best friends. Aside from the fact that it’s a cheaper alternative, you also get to enjoy the beautiful sights your country has to offer.

Are you ready? Prepare your favorite playlist, pack your bags, and don’t forget to bring these!


1. Functional OOTD Pieces. Yes, we know it’s important to get those perfect Instagrammable shots but don’t sacrifice health over style. Make sure you’re well-protected by bringing sunblock to keep you covered from the harsh sun. Also, keep those harmful UV rays away from your eyes with a stylish pair of sunglasses.


If you have babies and kids with you, keep their sensitive skin extra protected by bringing swimwear that protects them from UV rays. These swimwear essentials are clinically tested to a rating of UPF 50+, which means it significantly reduces sun exposure on your little ones.


2. Ice Packs & Insulated Containers. You live in a country where it feels like summer all year round so make sure you keep your food fresh and drinks cool by bringing ice packs, and lots of it! Put them all together in an insulated bag so you don’t have to worry about food spoiling even if the drive takes you three hours. These ice packs also help in keeping YOU cool when the sun gets unbearably hot!


Don’t forget to put your drinks in insulated containers, too, so that your drinks stay cool all throughout!


3. Your Favorite Snacks! There’s nothing like munching on your favorite snacks as you cruise along beautiful sceneries! Make sure you have enough snacks with you for unexpected delays. Besides, eating together is always a good way to bond with your loved ones. At the same time, happy tummies make for happy people!
