Good news, the National Museum in Ermita, Manila, now has free admission! It’s not only a great destination for couples, but it’s also fun for your whole family as well.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, going to the museum doesn’t sound too romantic, but it’s actually a great way to spend time with your spouse, and also a good way to see great art, and learn about Philippine history.
Afterwards, there are a lot of nearby restaurants where you can have a romantic dinner, and you can have a nice walk in nearby Luneta.

Now, it’s a bit far, but the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Clark (PIHABF), Pampanga, is well worth the trip (and a bit of expense).
It will be happening on February 9-12 in Clark, Pampanga, and it’s a great way to spend your weekend. For those who are more budget oriented, you can just have a nice date outside the venue and watch all of the amazing hot air balloons float by.
You can also bring your kids, since we’re sure that they’ll definitely love it! Learn more about the PIHABF by going to their website.
3. Watch a free concert!

If you can’t find any free events, there are also a lot of concerts that are available for cheap around the Metro. Afterwards, you can have a nice romantic dinner with your spouse or your family.
4. Have a nice breakfast date

Can you remember the last time that you and your partner had a nice breakfast in bed? Chances are, it’s been a while, so having a nice breakfast in bed for Valentine’s Day is the perfect way to start the day!
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just a couple of eggs, some coffee, and pandesal would be great. What’s important is that you and your spouse spend some time together, and just be happy that you have each other in your lives.
