What are good places to visit within 3 days in Laguna, Philippines? (I plan to visit in December)

Pansol Laguna hot spring

You can try Enchanted Kingdom in Sta.

Rosa then proceed to Nuvali also in Sta Rosa then try the hot springs of Pansol in Calamba,I think 3days are not enough to really experience Laguna

Hi! ,Well, Im already probably going to be echoing a lot of whats been said in the previous answers, but if I were going to plan to entertain guests, heres how I would go about it:,Day 1 - Bargain hunting in Greenhills,Sort of like Divisoria, as Andy Huang described it above, but set in a commercial complex of mini-malls.

Always a good place to bargain for cheap stuff, both knock-offs and some original stuff.

Prices wont be like in Divisoria, but its going to be a bit easier to get to.

,Day 2-3 - More shopping and good eats in Greenbelt,For the stuff that you cant find in Greenhills, there are lots of malls to go to in Manila.

Id suggest Greenbelt because of its proximity to hotels and to lots of good dining places.

,Day 4 - Intramuros Tour or Imelda Tour c/o Carlos Celdran,Read the above for the description.

I would also recommend his Imelda Tour for some more recent history and if youre more interested in the arts.

Also, watch out for his barter tours where you pay with anything you want.


,Day 5 - Spa Day,If youre staying in hotel, you probably have a good spa within the hotel itself, many of which are rated very highly in the local scene.

There are also some local spa chains which offer very good services at more reasonable prices.

,Day 6-7 for CWC in CamSur + Day 8 in Tagaytay or Day 6-8 for Palawan,For adventuring, you cant go wrong with CamSur or Palawan.

Both a couple of hours plane ride away from Manila, it wont be too hard to book trips to either or both destinations.

For watersports, CamSur is a great weekend getaway.

When you get back, take a trip up to Tagaytay to see Taal Lake and Volcano and enjoy some good food.

You can also rest up for some detox time in The Farm or enjoy the best restaurant in the Philippines, Antonios (#11 in last years Miele Guide of Top Asian Restaurants).

,Palawan will have more, so youll want to stay longer.

Beaches, natural sites like the Underground River, and other eco-tourist spots will be the main attractions.

,Day 8-11 for Boracay,I find the typical 3D/2N package too short to enjoy what Boracay has to offer in terms of a beach getaway.

I say stay for at least 4 days to enjoy the beach, the water sports, the other activities, and the night life.

Get some shopping done, enjoy the all the great food places, and spend a day just lounging around the beach.

,Day 11-14 FREE DAYS,If you still feel you want to go see some places, the last 3-4 days of your vacation should be enough time to squeeze them in.

You might want to get some more shopping done, get another spa day in, just lounge about poolside in one of the nice hotels, go play some games in Resorts World Manila, or even take another overnight trip from more history Corregidor Island or Vigan, or get some hot spring time in Laguna.

,Enjoy! Its more fun in the Philippines! :)

But, maybe weu2019re lucky that day?,Here is their official websiteDonu2019t forget to hike towards the falls at the back of their property.
