1. Bohol


If you want to experience the lush, serene and untouched grace of Visayas, you need to visit Bohol and enjoy your “me” time in its sweet surrender. Famous for its Chocolate Hills and Beautiful beaches, Bohol is a place in the Philippines where traffic is not really a daily term, and relaxation is synonymous to its name.

2. Batanes


Known to be the local version of New Zealand in the Philippines. Batanes-as they say- is a place where it heals all the wounded souls and rejuvenates weary spirits with its jaw-dropping awe-whopping scenic  lands. This place is situated in the Northern part of the Philippines and is a great place to enjoy your alone time. Batanes is considered to be one of the safest places in the Philippines with less than 5% of criminal rates, so it is totally safe for you to travel here alone.


3. Siquijor


It is a given that whenever you hear the name Siquijor, you easily relate it to the spooky tales of witchcraft rumors and otherworldly sightings. But, time to cut that belief. Siquijor is considered to be much safer than most modernized cities and towns in the Philippines.

5. Davao City


The list won’t be complete without, of course, including Davao City, this province in Mindanao is considered to be the safest and most livable city in the country. It is actually safe to walk around Davao alone even at night. Davao also boasts off a wondrous mix of natural and urban living.
