Places to Visit in Cavite

Jomar (my boyfriend) is from Cavite province. Because of that, we decided to have a Cavite tour as part of our Valentine-Birthday celebration. He knows how much I love going to historical places, thus he planned an itinerary for a day trip going places that played a significant role in the Philippines history.

We started our trip by meeting in Ayala Avenue, Makati City. We rode a bus going to Baclaran then transferred to a bus that goes to Cavite City. After around an hour and a half due to the bad traffic near SM Bacoor, we went down in Aguinaldo's Shrine. It was my first time there!

What I find most amazing about the place (more than it's historical significance and the museum displays explaining part of Philippine history) are the passageways between the floors. There were signage saying that the small door on the second floor leads to the fourth floor near the balcony. Those things were amazing! It was truly the right house for people during the Spanish time were hiding was necessary to avoid getting killed. After exploring the house of Emilio Aguinaldo, we road a small non-air condition bus to the gas station and transferred to another bus to have our lunch in Leslie's. It was a garden like restaurant in the middle of the road. Too bad they don't have the Bulalo and Boneless Bangus which I truly adore in their Tagaytay City branch. Our last stop for the day because it was too hot was the Casa Hacienda Tejeros Convention.

It was an amazing tour visiting historical places in Cavite. Jomar is actually mentioning some other tourist spots but we didn't have the energy and time to visit them. I am hoping for a round 2 of this tour.
