Anyone up for bazaar???…lots of quality slippers and shoes at very very affordable prices you will enjoy shopping at our home town in Liliw,Laguna. The latest design for the summer which you will find in the malls here can be bought there at half the price. The festival will start on April 21-29, you can watch unang hirit or magandang umaga pilipinas(not sure which network will feature the event) on April 23 for more details of the event.
I recommend stores like Socialite, Pias footwear, La chika, Shalom, Aishe footwear. When you get hungry try eating at Arabelas, they have the best dishes from pizza, pasta, steak and cakes. Some other great pasalubong include uraro, buko pie, lambanog, espasol and kesong puti.
Have a happy trip!

    from manila, take the SLEX exit Calamba. that should be the very last exit. head towards los banos and keep going. you’ll pass calamba, los banos, victoria. just go towards sta. cruz. it’s just 1 main road. once in sta. cruz, there’s a jolibee right before pagsanjan. turn right there and just go straight. you’ll see signs. from manila it’s about a 3 hour trip, depending on traffic. hope that helps.

    Hi Rene! I am based here in CA already since last year so I am not that familiar if some of the resorts or hotel still accommodate guests. But to name some: Batis ng Liliw- this is the nearest resort with a cheap rate, Villa Gregoria is the next resort/hotel by Nagcarlan, which is 20 minutes drive from Liliw- this has nicer and new rooms; more hotels are located along the way but this is in Sta. Cruz which is 45mintues away from Liliw but I think their rate will be cheaper.
    Sorry but I don’t have any contact info for them.
    I suggest you go there early in the morning so you can find a place to stay in and usually its nice to look around and shop in the afternoon when it is not that hot anymore. In the evening, thats when the street party starts, the whole street is closed with lots of food choices and all-night drinking. It is during the last weekend of the festival when there is much more activity, would be the best time to go there.
    Check out Arabela’s restaurant and Chef Mau, they offer differ cuisine so don’t miss them out.
    Hope I was able to help somehow.
    Thanks for reading our blog.

    It’s about 30 minutes drive, once you see Jollibee in Sta. Cruz Laguna this is the intersection going to Liliw when you turn right and when you head up straight this goes in Pagsanjan.
    Enjoy your trip!

      peasGrils: please take note of when this blog was post – April 16, 2007. so when we say “next week”, it’s the week after the initial posted date which would be around April 23, 2007. “next week” doesn’t necessarily mean the week after the blog is read. i just want to clarify that :)

    THE YEAR IS 1951 , LILIW IS THE PLACE WHERE I WAS BORN. ALTHOUGHT I DID NOT STAY LONGER IN LILIW, WE MIGRATED IN MANILA AND SOMETIMES HAVE A VACATION IN LILIW FROM 1960′S UP TO 1980′S. I LOVE TO EAT “KIPENG” WITH VINEGAR AT THE PARK AND SOMETIMES WE SPENT LATE NIGHT ROOMING THE TOWN. IT REMINDS OF ‘TINUTO”, KARE-KARE GINAYATAN NG PUSO NG SAGING NA NILUTO SA MALAKING LATA NG COOKING OIL, NILUPAK NI “BAYOT”, TO ALL OF MY KABABATA THE LATE ANTHONY LATO (D), CHITO CORDON, ALBERT BROFAR, PARENG LEO BROFAR ETC. THE COOL CATS MEMBERS, GERRY COLIGADO, VIC CAMELLO, ALEX COLIGADO, PAQUITO ALCANTARA (NAGTURO SA AKIN NA MAG-GITARA NOONG 60′S), ETC. LILIW IS MEMORABLE TO ME. IT REMINDS ME OF LTB NI MA ITE, FATHER OF ALEX SUIZA, BABY BUS NA LTB, LIPUTE, HUNGGO, KALUMPET, PAHO, MAKOPA, YAMBO, EL CIRCULO DE LILIO, THE SAGE, LOCATION SITE OF “ANG KILABOT SA MAKILING” IN 1959 STARRING MARIO MONTENEGRO, “GANITO KAMI NOON, PAANO KAYO NGAYON” CHRISTOPHER DE LEON MABUHAY KA LILIW. AND ALSO HELLO TO OUR MAYOR.

    ONE THING ABOUT LILIW IS THAT YOU WILL NOT LOOK OLDER BECAUSE OF THE CLIMATE. GO TO “LABAK”, DURING OUR DAYS WE DID NOT CALL IT RESORT, WE CALL IT “LABAK” SA ILAYA, SA GITNA O SA IBUBA. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY BILLIARD, JUST VISIT THE COLIGADO’S HOUSE AND LOOK FOR “KABISE”. I AM CONFUSED WITH THE STREET STA. MARIA AND SAN JOSE? DURING NIGHT TIME, JUST VISIT MR. ARDEZ HOUSE SA IBUBA,JUST ORDER PANCIT AND ENJOY THE MUSIC IN A JUKE BOX. “BUS STOP, DAY TRIPPER. SPEAKING OF DAY TRIPPER, IT REMINDS ME OF THE TRIPPERS SA GITNANG BAYAN DOON NAKATAMBAY SA BILYARAN NI KABISE. KUMUSTA NA KAYO DYAN.

    talagang wala ng sasarap pa sa sariling bayan sayang nga lang wala pang tsinelas festival noong araw na balita ko eh sobrang saya…tama kayo mga kababayan ko kung nais ninyo ang tsinelas pambahay man o panggala, sa bayan namin kayo dumayo at madami kayong pagpipilian.Alam ba ninyo na lalong matibay ang mga tsinelas namin kung ito ay ginagamitan pa ng” tistis” ang tistis ay parti ng niyog na pinagsasapin-sapin at tinatahe tapos kinokortehan at gingawang apakan.Ang tinapay sa uraro at kamote candy ni ate Nena,lola Pina ang isa sa mga kaunahang gumagawa ng mga ito ay mabibili pa rin ninyo sa Liliw.Syempre ang lambanog na 94 di ko malilimutan dito mo pa rin mabibili huwag lang “kenkoy”.
    Talagang mabuhay kayo mga kababayan at dalangin ko na lalo pa kayong makilala

      It depends on the slippers but the price will be from 200 above. Most of the stuff you will able to see on display in the mall so you are getting it really cheap in LIliw. For the directions mayble you can google map it, I haven’t drove there its always my dad driving if we are going that far. But I know there is a way through Pagsanjan and the other way will be through Magdalena.

    There are 2 ways onhow you can get to Liliw from Manila.

    First is via the San Pablo Route. Just take a bus bound to Lucena Via San Pablo. Once in San Pablo City, take a tricycle and head out to the jeepney terminal near the the Cathedral and Fire Station, there you can find jeepneys bound for Liliw.

    The second is via the Sta Cruz route, just take a bound for the Sta Cruz route via Calamba. Upon arrival in the Sta Cruz terminal, just cross the street and wait for Liliw bound jeepneys.

    Estimate time for both routes are around 3 hours. You can find air-con and non air-con buses going to San Pablo and Sta Cruz in Cubao and in Buendia LRT.

    Hope this would help guys… Hope you’ll enjoy visiting my hometown.

    ladies’ wedge shoes in liliw typically cost around 300-400. kids’ wedge shoes, on the other hand, cost from 200-350, depending on the complexity of the designs. if you’ve ever stopped by in the gasoline stations along SLEX or NLEX, the wedge shoes being sold there for 895 and up are exactly the ones you can buy “unbranded” in liliw for more than half the price! or the wedge shoes that you see in SM or Robinsons, etc., that cost from 500 up, are also from liliw. went there last week during the last day of the tsinelas festival. if you’re lucky, you can find “last piece” shoes/slippers/wedges from 100-200/pair! when you go to liliw, your 1000 will definitely go a long way, you can go home with 3 pieces of shoes and slippers, at least. definitely worth the trip.
