If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of Manila, normally, you would want to travel out of town to go to the beaches of Batangas, or San Juan, La Union. However, in this day and age, we barely have time to travel (outside of summer vacation) due to the notorious traffic of Manila, which can add more stress. Another option would be to go on a spiritual retreat, but not all have enough time to spare, or, some of those who have time are not that spiritual, or are averse to strict silence. As a result, some would rather go on a staycation (vacationing in a hotel in your own town). Here are the best staycation spots in Pasig, which is still in Metro Manila, so you can have your amazing staycation without leaving the metropolis.
