Discovery Primea: The Best Staycation Experience in Manila

(Sponsored Post)

Let's face it. Sometimes, going on an actual vacation (no matter how amazing the place is) can be stressful. Traveling can take its toll, especially when you are doing it for a long period. This is the reason why people prefer doing Staycations. The idea of a Staycation is not new but it is not a common thing in this country. Strictly speaking, a staycation means staying home or somewhere close to home to help you relax and rejuvenate. I prefer to do it in the latter. It has done wonders for my mind and body. It's nice to slow down a bit and tap out while staying in your zip code.

Among all the new properties in the city, Discovery Primea was the one that had always piqued my interest. Having stayed in some of their properties before, I knew Primea had something unique to offer in the city. As a member of the prestigious Preferred Hotel and Resorts LVX Collection, a mark of sophistication and luxury, Primea has brought Filipino hospitality to a different level.

Located in the center of my favorite city, you cannot miss this structure that dominates the Makati skyline. Kenzo Tange, who received the Pritzer Prize (The Highest honor in architect) was the man behind Primea's architecture.

Post-Residency Vacation

Hello, everyone! I have been traveling around Europe now for almost a month. This has been one of my most memorable trips so far since the end of my dermatology residency program. I started in Rome where I actually got to kiss the Pope Francesco's hand. It was an out of the body experience! I could not believe that it happened until today. More cities came after that, of course. Venice. Florence. Naples. Bielefeld. Cologne. Prague. Barcelona. Marrakech.

Currently, I am in Paris - a beautiful city that has been a victim of terrorism twice this year. Due to the recent attacks, I was discouraged to come here but terrorism should not derail us from exploring the word. We can't let them win! Paris is still as beautiful as the last time (with more soldiers roaming the city now!). I cannot wait to share with you all my experience. More details to follow.

See you.
