Avid motorcyclist Zach Lucero recommends planning long motorcycle rides for these destinations in the Philippines
Tagaytay and Nasugbu
The Kaybiang Tunnel makes a great destination for a spontaneous long ride. Enjoy sea views as you pass through Cavite and Batangas and make a loop back to Manila.
See the wonders of Northern Luzon on this trip. Make sure you arrive there right before sunset — the old architecture looks beautiful against the fading light.
Ride to Sta. Ana in April to take part in the Partakan Festival, where you can meet other bike enthusiasts and rock out on the beach.
Visayas and Mindanao
Go down south with your bike — or take a boat, even — to experience nature along the highways in places like Cebu and Davao.
