It's my first time to visit Villa Escudero, even though we often pass by this place whenever we visit our lola, tita and tito's, and cousins at Lucena in Quezon province. We almost had a three hour drive before we arrived at Villa Escudero, so let me share you a new experience we had back then ...
We arrived at around 11am, the sky was clear and the sun was out. While we were on our way to the lobby to pay our entrance fee, there was this staff handing us gulaman to somehow replenish the summer heat. You can check their rates, amenities, etc. at their website www.villaescudero.com
The first thing that we did was a museum tour. Taking of photos weren't allowed inside (to be honest, the museum was kinda creepy for me, see it for yourselves haha) After the tour inside the museum, we rode this "cart" like thing (idk what it is) that was being pulled by a carabao. The one that we rode was named maganda haha.
The carabao stopped by a waiting shed and dropped us at a place on the photo above.
We were all so stoked for the buffet because all of us was already hungry. I got to eat at 1pm.
I failed at blogging the food we ate, it was a really satisfying set of pinoy dishes like lechong manok, pancit, and caldereta.
After we ate, we're off again to explore the other parts of this villa.
The vibe here was so chill and peaceful. Here are more photos!
At around 2pm there will be a cultural show, they'll be performing famous pinoy folk dances and cultures. (sorry for the quality, I only used a phone)
If you didn't know, Villa Escudero was originally a coconut plantation.
We really experienced the allure of Philippine country life at Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort. I'll be ending the blog here. If you have extra time, it would be awesome if you'll leave us a comment below (: Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
