The day for the holiday celebration is most likely reserved for our family and for our relatives, which can be a good explanation as to why it has become a college tradition for barkadas to throw an advance Christmas celebration.
While restaurants, cafes, bars and our very homes can be the usual places for every barkada to have their gift giving, here are other suggested spots that’s just worthy enough to spend for.
From dinner under the stars to having picnic by the lake down to cruising by the bay over sunset, these hip and young places are sure to make that barkada Christmas celebration a unique experience to remember. Check them out below:
Dinner under the stars at Mon’s Restaurant
Dinner under the stars sounds like that scene strip off from a romantic movie or that in a setting from a John Green book, but really, the inspiration for the Dinner Under The Stars concept does exist at Camp Benjamin, Alfonso Cavite.
This 4.7 hectare multi-purpose facility houses Mon’s Restaurant where the “dinner under the stars” experience takes place. For only P399/head, imagine hanging out in an open night sky in a picnic-style setting giving off the right hip and free vibe! A really nice place for the gang to have their early Christmas celebration as it is open every Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The menu includes unlimited pasta, chicken, pork, seafood, and vegetable BBQs.

Magical Field of Lights at Nuvali, Laguna.
Nuvali, Laguna has become that trendy spot to have a good hang out. Well, this holiday season, the place is the perfect Christmas retreat for you and your friends!
If you want to hang out whole day, then come in early to the picnic area in front of the Monochrome and enjoy a picnic with the view of the lake from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. As night falls, get to enjoy the new Magical Field of Lights from Nuvali’s field where the Night Sky Cinema used to stand. Open from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, the 3,600-square-meter field filled with 5,000 tulip bud lights that dances rhythmically to the Christmas music every 30 minutes is sure to capture you and your gang in awe! A light tunnel welcomes you when you get there and there are benches where you can sit to take in the beautiful view.
Aside from the show, there are also Christmas markets and bazaars nearby, particularly at Nuvali’s Activity Park, so there’s more for you and your friends to hang as long as you guys can.
The sunset experience of the Manila Bay Cruise
Ever had that cruise dining experience like that of Hong Kong’s Victoria Habor night cruise? Well, Manila Bay has that experience worth the try! Hear this, for just 950/head, the Manila Bay cruise through MV Spirit of Manila is running a holiday promo until January 1, 2017!
You and your barkada get a different kind of buffet treat as you and your friends get a dinner cruise along Manila bay with the gorgeous sunset by the background and Manila’s city lights illuminating as evening falls. So, schedule your advance gift-giving celebration and make a reservation.

Glamping at Baler, Aurora
Glamping or glamorous camping is just one of the ultimate barkada experience that should be on the barkada’s bucketlist! There are a number of glamping places that can fulfill that barkada dream, but we recommend the glamping experience at Baler, Aurora!
My Easy Adventure sells you and your friends with “Why stay at a five-star hotel if you can stay at a five million stars campsite?” With Php 2,300 as a budget per person, you get an overnight stay experience in quadruple sharing on weather-proof tents, all with comfortable beds, private outdoor picnic table, rechargeable lamps and a fan, plus it’s already inclusive of breakfast, lunch, merienda and dinner on a weekday, and Php 3,200 per head for the same package on a weekend! It’s really “sulit” for the barkada’s taste!
