One of my favorite places to go to when in the Philippines, is Villa Escudero. It is a great place to go to for the day with the family and if you want to learn a little about Philippine culture & history, this is the place to go.
Here is a link to a brief overview and history of the estate:
Some unique features of the resort: Carabao cart rides, Jeepney rides, eating at the base of a waterfall, an eclectic collection of historical items, a cultural dance show and river raft rides.
