The first thing you notice on Valentine’s Day in the Philippines is that many restaurants have special Valentine’s Day menu items. They are often buffets and the charge is on a per-couple basis. The restaurants become so packed that you usually have to make reservations to get in. Resorts and hotels also are very busy.

You will also find “kissing contests” going on in many parts of the country. In past years, contestants have tried to kiss the longest or in the biggest kissing groups or break some other world kissing record. It is really quite a spectacle!

Of course, there are more routine aspects of Valentine’s Day in the Philippines too, like exchanging cards, eating too much chocolate, and shopping the sales at the local malls.
