2 free days.......what do i do?

I'm working on manila for 2 weeks and have 1 Sat & Sunday fee to do something cool. Can fly anywhere but not that keen to go back to boracay.

Want something different but not ridiculously expensive.

Let me know your ideas. Much appreciated!

We stayed at the Lake Hotel, I had not booked before, so as a walked in guest & that was on weekday, we got a very good rate of PHP 4.100. The hotel had a very nice view of the Taal Lake. The room of Lake hotel also ok, clean & comfortable. After checked in, we were brought to a place, it's a residence where we had to take a motor boat to the foothill. The boat riding 2 way cost PHP 1.500. The whole boat regardless of whether you are 1 or 2 or 4 paxs. We are 3 paxs. From the foothill, we had to ride a horse to go up the mountain. The horse riding cost PHP 450/ pax & the entrance of the volcano area cost PHP 50/ pax. I wish I can add some photos of the view here. There are lots of organizer to crossing the lake & horse riding, so have to be careful, most of them standing on the street and offering their package. Since I am going with my trusty tourist driver, so he brought us to place where we feel safe, secure & reasonable price. Thanks.

Corregidor, maybe? (That's if you are a history buff)

2 days is simply not enough to check out Sagada, Palawan or Bohol. Puerto Galera Beach might be a good choice as it is just a ferry away after a 2-hour ride from Manila to Batangas Port although I am having my second thoughts since the last time I went there, it wasn't worth it. Maybe a roadtrip to Tagaytay would suffice... no beach but tons of things to see... Actually, you don't even have to do anything, I can spend the whole day just sitting on a chair with a cup of Starbucks hot coffee looking out to the majestic Taal Volcano.
