Dasmariñas

By far the largest city in province in terms of population and land area, Dasmariñas is also known as the “University City of Cavite,” as it is home to a number of satellite branches of Metro Manila colleges, like De La Salle University and the Technological University of the Philippines.

The Dasmariñas branch of De La Salle University, in particular, has an on-campus museum that’s open to the public. Called the Museo De La Salle, the museum features exhibits on the lives of nineteenth century Filipinos, particularly those who were part of the ilustrado (educated) class. The museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday, with entrance fee discounts for students.

Foodies will be pleased to know that Dasmariñas is also home to a food truck park. Aptly named the Backyard Food Truck Community, this small park located along Aguinaldo Highway features all kinds of food trucks, serving different kinds of cuisines ranging from Japanese to Mexican. The Backyard Food Truck Community is open from Wednesday to Saturday, between the hours of 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Make sure to bring an umbrella though, as the place is entirely al fresco.

Drop by the city during the month of November to catch the Paro Paro Festival, a celebration of the city’s incorporation into the province. The festival has city residents dancing in the streets, all donning colorful butterfly costumes.

While there may not be a lot to see in Dasmariñas, its close proximity to Metro Manila makes it an ideal getaway for those hoping to free themselves from the hustle and bustle of city life.
