San Pablo Laguna

Sampaloc & Pandin Lake

Pandin Lake is a perfect backdrop for lazy afternoons. You can enjoy a refreshing coconut juice while you tour around the lake on a "balsa", a raft made of bamboo sewn together with rattan and local vines. You can row with the local folk across this beautiful lake. A perfect way to enjoy the serenity of the place.

Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery

The country’s one and only underground cemetery and a National Historical Landmark. This landmark’s charm is not only its uniqueness, or the visible traces of wall plaster paintings and woodcarvings from a bygone era:


Liliw Laguna


About five minutes from Nagcarlan is the municipality of Liliw, the prime spot for footwear shopping. A town built entirely on a culture of shoe- and sandal-making. Liliw features main streets lined with myriad local shops showcasing a multitude of designs. The quaint feel of its streets and shops remind one of an open-air mall.

Lucban Quezon

Nestling at the foothills of picturesque Mt. Banahaw, LUCBAN is a quaint town with cool breezes tempered by the warm smiles of its friendly residents. Blessed with its rich, fertile soil, the scenic countryside of Lucban is dotted with Flower and Vegetable Farms.



Its mouthwatering delicacies, or "kakanin", such as Broas, Otap, Tikoy, and of course, Longganisang Lukban are preferred by every visitor as "pasalubong". Intricate designs and superb quality are hallmarks of Lucban's many cottage industries, and the reason why handcrafted "Buntal" hats, bags, and trinkets are favored accessories in Haute Couture.
