There is nothing more colorful than the Philippine Festivals, and there is no easier way to witness the festivity than condo living. With various ready for occupancy condo units offered by Vista Residences nationwide, there is no doubt that tourists that wish to invest on properties will not be burdened by exhausting booking processes. Our country is known for having a diverse culture making it richer with various traditions and norms; thus, the best way to discover its beauty is through immersing yourself in the community by living in it.

Experience the Philippines Through Condo Living

Condo living is one of the easiest ways to immerse yourself in these festivals. Imagine living close to where it is celebrated. Having a condo in Cebu and celebrating Sinulog there every January, for example, is a perfect way to get rid of the trouble in finding places to stay – one of the perfect examples to invest in a ready for occupancy condo as well.

August is known to be called Ghost Month, but for us Filipinos, August is still a month worth celebrating for. As a matter of fact, we celebrate over 42,000 festivals per year – a testimony that Philippines is indeed one of the happiest countries in the world.

People who invest in condo living are the ones who will likely experience the Philippines, literally. If you have a condo in Baguio, Panagbenga Festival is just a minute away. If you wish to explore Mindanao, you can choose a condo in CDO – and many other options!

If you choose to stay away from your boring old place, fly to a different province, may it be from Luzon, Visayas, or Mindanao. From there you can discover more, explore, and who knows there are other festivals that are still in need to be exposed – an instant VIP pass, indeed!

There are numerous options to choose from up north down to the south. Philippines, being a country composed of numerous islands, is hard to discover – even for us locals! Best thing is that a ready for occupancy condo is there to aid our need for accommodations, so better invest to discover the Philippines by yourself.

Perks of Condo living: Access to festivity

The closer you are to the places where these festivals were staged, the more you will be able to appreciate it. Condo living enables you to visualize festivals even more – the perks of being in the exact place, finding a new home within their comfort. Ready for occupancy condo can be your way to get instant access to the festivities; you can just go, drop your belongings, and then enjoy the colorful streets filled with joyful parades!

Experience Visayas

Visayas region is at the top of the most visited place for the month of August since festivals there are just around the corner. We have Manaragat Festival in Samar. Manaragat (a local term for fishermen) is a way of paying tribute to St. Bartholomew who is believed to be the protector of major fishing ground in their province. Aside from Sinulog Festival, Cebu also celebrates Cardova Dinagat Festival. Staged every second Sunday of August in Cardova, Cebu, locals grace their streets as a celebration of their primary source of living – fishing. Other festivals include Ajonay Festival in Leyte, Pagpasidunog Festival in Capiz, to name a few. Condo living is one of the best ways to expose yourself to such celebrations. If you wish to experience all these festivals, consider investing a property within the region, perhaps a condo in Cebu.

Next stop: The land of Promise

Mindanao comes after with the most celebrated festivals in August. One of the most anticipated festivals, Kadayawan sa Dabaw, happens every third week of the month. “Madayaw”, which means the beauty of a thing, celebrates the bounty resources of the province. Sal-lupongan Festival, also in Davao, is a celebration of gratitude for the abundant blessings given to the locals. Jolo, Sulu also has the Rajah Baguinda Festival. The celebration, started from 1390, is a way of commemorating the arrival of Rajah Baguinda from Indonesia – exposing their rich Islamic culture and textiles. Having a condo in CDO, for example, will help you access such festivals in the region.

Celebration doesn’t stop after August!

Philippines is the home of the most colorful Festivals in Southeast Asia. Our complex yet distinct archipelago makes every region different from each other – having their own set of festivals, celebrating their different values and beliefs. We can trace this tradition way back to our Spanish colonial era. It has been patterned with the so-called “fiesta”.

It is not only in the month of August that every region celebrates their festivals. For a whole year the Philippines is filled with numerous festivities based on something as simple as a flower to as vast as an ocean, all the way from the busiest districts to the farthest island from the capital – that is how rich and vibrant our country is.

Northern Luzon has Panangbenga Festival of Baguio City, Pampanga celebrates Giant Lantern Festival every December, Moriones Festival happens every holy week in Marinduque, while Antipolo has their Higantes Festival. Ati-atihan, Dinagyang, and Masskara Festival all staged in the Visayas region. Meanwhile in Mindanao, top festivals include T’Nalak Festival of South Cotabato, Tuna Festival of General Santos, and Kaamulan Festival of Bukidnon.

Travelling around the country is quite exhausting but being able to see the distinct and rich culture of every province that is reflected with their festivity pays it off – thanks to condo living, hotel booking is no longer a major problem.
