How do you spend long weekends?
We, at Travel and Food, are really excited for upcoming long weekends.
We always want to discover new places, and of course food. Last February 16 was Chinese New Year, and were just at home browsing Facebook. Suddenly, we saw this place called “Kamayan sa Palaisdaan” . It was a 3-hour ride by car from Manila.
And here it is, “Kamayan sa Palaisdaan” welcome us here at Tayabas, Quezon Province. Kamayan sa Palaisdaan is a restaurant known for its bamboo huts floating in man-made ponds.
Here are some amazing lists of restaurants with various themes you’ve got to try:
1. Floating Hut
Enjoy your dining experience with this very beautiful, naturally-inspired environment. You also need to try their mouth-watering “Ginataang Suso with Pako (Fern Plant)” it’s so delicious, you might even forget your name 😀
2. Air Summit Gourmet.
Place your order at their Immigration Lounge and wait for your name to be called before you board the aircraft. Once you settle inside the aircraft, viola! Your food is fresh,hot and ready to eat:-)
Want a foot spa while eating? Kamayan sa Palaisdaan will offer you this fish spa while enjoying your food.
They will also offer you to try their swimming pool for some refreshment. There are two swimming pools at Kamayan sa Palaisdaan:
After this, you may head to the next town ,
Lucban Quezon Province
Kamay ni Hesus
In just 5 kilometers away from Kamayan sa Palaisdaan, you may exercise your religion by visiting “Kamay ni Hesus”
A giant statue of Jesus situated at the top of a 300 stair-steps mountain.
The Kamay ni Hesus Shrine at Lucban in Quezon is a sought-after pilgrimage destination known for its miraculous healing masses and the steep hill that leads to a majestic Risen Christ statue. Given the Philippines’ rich Catholic culture, it is no surprise that thousands of devotees flock here, especially every Holy Week to repent, reflect, and give thanks.
How to get there:
