Biñan

This Laguna city is ingrained in Philippine history. It is one of the first cities in the country, dating back to the start of the Spanish exploration. It is also affiliated with national hero Jose Rizal, who spent his early years here. There is a monument commemorating his relationship with the city near San Isidro de Labrador Parish. Biñan is easily accessible via South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) from Manila.

Its tourist destinations are a reflection of its remarkable past: Casa Real and Casa Parroquial, are religious buildings hundreds of years old. One can also visit the Alberto Mansion, where Jose Rizal received his early education from his aunt.

Natural wonders include Mount Makiling and Tibagan Falls. Mount Makiling, in particular, plays a large part in local lore as the home of the fairy, Maria Makiling.

Apart from its impressive cultural destinations, Biñan gets a lot of visitors because of Splash Island, the largest water theme park in the Philippines.

Biñan is considered a prominent trading center in southern Luzon. Its local products include puto (a kind of rice pastry), footwear and hats. The city also has Pavilion Mall and Biñan Central Mall where one can relax, go catch a movie, or do some souvenir shopping.
