The whole country was on vacation mode this past week, and even the stars did not miss the opportunity to relax, unwind, and go to places far away from the metro.

Through the photo sharing application Instagram, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to spot some celebrities during their time off.

OVERSEAS TRAVELERS. Pauleen Luna posted pictures on her Instagram account all the way from bustling Macau.

Although she did not mention whether she was with her boyfriend Vic Sotto during her trip, a photo posted earlier showed that they did ride a plane together.

Also spending time abroad are lovers Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff, who, along with the latter's sister Solenn Heussaff, were in Galle, Sri Lanka for the wedding of their other sister Vanessa.

Anne's ex, Sam Milby, was also wandering outside the country in cold Japan, touring around the picturesque Shibuya district.

Pretty couple Isabelle Daza and her non-showbiz beau Adrien Semblat also jetted off to Asian destination Bali, Indonesia for the long weekend.

Maja Salvador, on the other hand, flew out to nearby Singapore and took her family out on a trip around the progressive Asian country.

In her account, Maja posted several photos of their group in tourist spots such as the Marina Bay Sands and Universal Studios Singapore, where she spotted former members of the ‘90s dance group Streetboys.

Observing the Holy Week without Dolphy for the first time, Zsa Zsa Padilla and daughters Zia and Coco Quizon had some mother-daughter bonding in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.

Meanwhile, Kapuso couple Geoff Eigenmann and Carla Abellana were enjoying some couple time in the Western hemisphere, touring around California, USA.

OUT-OF-TOWNERS.  Although Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo never mentioned in their Instagram posts where they were, many had guessed that they are in the exclusive Amanpulo resort in Palawan.

Apparently, it was "quality couple time" for the Kapamilya stars as Bea made note in one of her posts that they sat in "the only table without kids" at dinner time.
