QUEZON City, Philippines (Eagle News Service, August 12) – It was said that the town of Liliw got its name from a beautiful bird that sings “Liw, liw, liw”. Liliw is a fourth-class municipality in Laguna and although it may be located in the sleepy foothills of Mount Banahaw, many still find it worthwhile to visit.

The long journey to get there may make you hungry. Good thing that there are many places to dine in Liliw and you should take time to sample the food. Liliw is known for its handmade local delicacies, making use of traditional methods passed down through the generations.

But what makes the name of Liliw resound, not only in Laguna but in the rest of the Philippines as well, is its hand-made footwear. Fancy and made from indigenous materials, the shoes made from Liliw has even gained international recognition for its colorful and intricate designs.


In a province known for its hot springs, Liliw stands out for being famous for its cold-water springs. The pristine, crystalline water invites one to take the plunge and be refreshed after taking in nature’s serenity.
