San Pablo City
Maharlika Highway passes the outskirts of the town. Some busses bound for Manila pass by San PAblo and there are jeepneys to Calamba City.
Sampaloc Lake is beautiful, almost in the city centre - good markets, great old church - nearby are the other 6 lakes, Villa Escudero (worth a visit), and Alaminos (on the main road about 7 km before San Pablo) which is the departure point for Hidden Valley springs (also worth a visit, even if rather expensive).
Buko pie, espasol, ampaw, pinipig, kesong puti (white cheese) shing-a-ling and tamarind sweets.
