You can still enjoy Valentine’s Day at these places (even if you’re single)

Although Valentine’s Day might be considered as one of the greatest days of the year for many –  especially for lovers – some may not give the same time and effort to celebrate the day.

Oftentimes on this occasion, couples are busy preparing for their dates and planning how they will spend the special day with their loved ones. On the other hand, this has been always different for single people.

But there’s no reason to feel sad and sulk about it when there are plenty of things you can do and places you can go even if you’re alone!

Here are some of the best places to hang out in this Valentine’s Day:

Since Valentine’s Day is a traditional day for people who express love with their loved ones, churchgoing is one of the best things to do during Valentine’s Day. Though many couples are celebrating the “Day of Love” in cinemas, park, etc., ‘singles’ may go to Sta. Cruz church with their families and friends to celebrate the special day with Jesus.

Designed with Baroque accents, the Sta. Cruz Church is located in Plaza Sta. Cruz. It was built when the district of Sta. Cruz was established by the Jesuits in the early 1600s, according to Just Gola.

Museums are romantic for lovebirds, but it is also a place for singles seeking relaxation. You can either go alone or tag along with your friends and families to the National Museum on Valentine’s Day. And since it is always open to the public, you can visit this place and other museums in the metro to admire art or learn more on history.

If you’re single and looking for someone who’s willing to celebrate Valentine’s Day with you, you can go bar hopping with yourself or with your group of ‘single’ friends along the different establishments in Makati Avenue.

Going to the mall and doing some shopping alone is also one of the best activities to do during Valentine’s Day. Aside from treating yourself to your favorite clothes, shoes, bags, etc., you are consuming your time in choosing items that make you happy.

Having a spa day with yourself on Valentine’s Day could be a great way of relaxing. Whether it’s having a massage or a soak in a hot tub, this could be the perfect way to live the day up alone. /FM
