Looking for another charming place to visit south of Manila aside from Pansol and Tagaytay? Visit the Lakes of San Pablo, Laguna! A colleague brought us here some two years ago for some fresh hipon and pako salad lunch aboard a balsa while cruising Lake Pandin, one of the seven (yes, there are seven) lakes in San Pablo.


We were only able to cruise Lake Pandin and see its twin lake, Yambo by going up a little hill from the banks of Pandin. We were not able to swim since we didn’t trust the water Β which got murky from the rain.



We then went to the Underground Cemetery in Nagcarlan the next day.


Since the Philippines is a country rich in folklore and horror stories, this cemetery is haunted according to locals like all the other cemeteries in the country.


Until the next balsa ride,
