With an entire year ahead and still full of possibilities, many of you are probably planning your next big vacation. Before you book that flight to a faraway country or uncharted island, why not take the time to explore the beauty in your own backyard first? The Philippines is filled with beautiful destinations, historical monuments, and bucket list-worthy sites. Don't believe us? Starbucks' Relief Mug Series, which pays homage to famous local icons and landmarks, is all the proof you need.
The Starbucks Relief Mug Series is a staple in cities all around the world that house the Seattle-based coffee shop and it's a line that constantly gets revamped with new designs. This year, they've released four mugs, each highlighting different places in the country—Manila, Cebu, Boracay, and the Philippines as a whole. Each mug features a unique ceramic mold tailored to the place its named after and painted in soft, gradient hues that highlight notable icons from around the country like the kalesa, jeepney, Malacañang Palace, and more.
