Laguna: UP Los Baños

I have been to Los Baños a number of times as a kid. Sadly, we never got past the hot springs. I say it's sad because beyond the pools, the town has so much more to offer. Thanks to a friend, a local there (see? it pays to know the locals), I discovered a weekend getaway just a couple hours drive from Manila.

UP Los Baños

One great place to see in this neck of the woods is the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UP LB) campus. To get here, continue driving the Los Baños highway, past the hot springs, and you'll reach a very busy intersection. Take the right and drive further, until you reach the UP LB gates.
