The Highlands of the East- Antipolo City

Scroll down to content

When you’re fed up living inside the noisy and congested concrete jungle of Manila and thinking about being away for a day on a restrained budget and time.

You can ride a tricycle to tour you around Antipolo, but first be specific with the destination so you can negotiate with the price.

So, Here are the places that may help feed your millennial soul.

Antipolo Cathedral

Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage originated in March 25, 1626. The Marian wooden image was brought from Mexico aboard El Almirante galleon. During World War II, when the town was destroyed the image was taken by the devotees to the house of Rosario Ocampo and was later transferred to Quiapo Church and was brought back to Antipolo after the war.

Don’t forget to buy their famous Kasuy (Cashew nut) and Suman (Rice Cake) right infront of the cathedral.


But if you’ve been to the Good Voyage Church many times and looking for another church to visit, check this BOSO BOSO CHURCH that we’ve discovered.

Nuestra SeΓ±ora de la Annunciata Parish Church. The church was damaged by an earthquake in 1880, damaged by fire in 1943 and was restored to its former state in 1995 through the generosity of parishioners.

Its a nice old church. So if you want to take a new path and to discover a preserved antique church, we would like to recommend this to you.


Pinto means door in Filipino language. The museum is a passage thru modern and contemporary art sitting on a 1.3 hectare property known as Silangan Gardens.

There are limitless photographic oppurtunities waiting at every angle to make your instagram better than the best. Oh btw, you can also have your pre-nuptial sessions at a very affordable price.

The artworks on display are from the massive collections of Dr. Joven Cuanang, owner of the Pinto Art Museum.

We suggest that even if we, millennials are very focus on capturing an ig-worthy photos, let’s not forget the message of each and every painting displayed inside the famous art gallery.

Cloud 9 Hotel and Resort

Obviously it actually feels like you are in Cloud 9. Climbing up to its restaurant, up to its 360 view tower through their hanging bridge.

Perfect for your romantic dates as they offer delightful foods with a not-so pricy menu. Eating with your family or with special someone would be really so romantic.

Perfect time to go there will be 5pm to watch for the sun to set and after that, you can have your dinner looking at the city lights. Isnt it perfect?

360 view tower photos from different time.

After a tiring day, you can also have their cozy hotel accomodation.
