If there's a tip that this writer can give you young professionals, it's that you should take a break from work once in a while. Work will always be there and it can pile up but one needs a breather from it. I like to take a trip to the beach with my friends once in a while, and our choice beach destination is always La Union.

La Union is a province in the Ilocos Region and its capital is San Fernando. Within La Union is the municipality of San Juan, dubbed the surfing capital of Northern Philippines. The waves from the nearby beaches of San Juan are suitable for both beginners and pros. It's a great place to get away, especially if you're with your friends and loved ones. The last time that my friends and I were in La Union, we stayed at the Sea Park Beach Resort. It's about a six hour drive from Manila, not counting stops.
