Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort
Tiaong, Quezon, Philippines
relaxing, cultural experienceSpend a weekend at Villa Escudero South of Manila, near San Pablo. The former coconut estate welcomes guests in rustic bungalows and idyllic surroundings near an artificial lake. In addition to peace and quiet (and romantic evening serenades by local singers), the Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m. cultural show is great. Also recommended is partaking in a lunch served in the middle of the river and next to the waterfall. Yes, you do get your feet wet, but if you don't like the fun of it, you could still enjoy your meal at the river bank. Museum is a mix of religius, ethnographic, and war items. Estate is full of Filipino guests who enjoy swiming pools with slides and funy statues all around, jeepney and carabao rides, fishing, rowing on bamboo rafts etc.
