James Reid reveals his favorite summer place in the Philippines


With Holy Week break over and done with, James Reid said he still wants to go on more adventures this summer if only he can squeeze it into his schedule. The outdoorsy actor admitted he loves going on spontaneous road trips with friends right outside the city. "Number one, I would recommend hiking. There’s so many places you can go. A personal favorite of mine which is not too hard to get to is in Baguio, Benguet. The mountain province is one of my favorite places to go to. Two, Siargao for the surfing and there’s so much to explore there. Number three, if budget is not a problem, go to Japan. Tokyo is a crazy adventure," he shared.

The new Merrell ambassador said that out of all his favorite destinations, a local one is still the best. "Siargao is my favorite place right now. Surfing on the reef break is a really great experience. I encourage everyone to go out and experience everything in nature, whether it be in the mountains or the ocean. There’s always an adventure to be had," he said.

Even though he has explored a lot of places here and abroad already, James said there are still a lot of places to explore around the world including a very challenging nine-day hike. "There’s still so many places for me to see. Including in the Philippines. What’s really on my mind that I want to do next is… I want to climb a hiking trail in Nepal. It’s near the base of Mt. Everest and I’ve been planning it with some friends for a while now,” he added.
