Filipino tradition often dictates that Noche Buena and Media Noche be spent at home. But just in case you're tired of the same ol' food and the same ol' background for your family photos, there's always the option of joining the festivities elsewhere. A number of Metro Manila hotels are having staycation promos for the whole month of December, while others are having well-curated perks if you book on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve.
