Summer has been in full swing in many countries in past few months, but still on its way in others. How about you? Have you been wondering where to spend the rest of your vacation days in August? You might want to check out the following destinations and find your next go-to vacation.
- Boracay in the Philippines
It may sound ironic, but most travel-savvy tourists would opt to visit Boracay, one of the top-rated islands in the world, during the rainy season of August. Their primary reason is the fact that airfare and hotel/resort accommodations are cheap and less tourists are visiting the island since summer has just culminated. But the winning surprise awaiting you at the island is its brooding view as the rain clouds hover above the sea. Isn’t it awesome? Tranquility at its best, should I say.

Riding a roller coaster for an annual tradition during summer is a good idea despite the aggravating crowds and long queues at Walt Disney World. Just be brave with the hot weather and humidity to mingle with your favorite Disney character.
