4.) Visit Arts Museums
This is the first time we visited a museum in the middle of a foresty hill. We were impressed of the art piece collections of Pinto Art Museum which talk about human freedom, philippine society, religion and sex. You can also have instagram worthy pictures while enjoying the fresh air in this huge compound. There are other art museums within Antipolo.
Antipolo is also known as a Catholic Pilgrimage site. One of the religious places that we visited is the National Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage. The safe voyage of Governor-General Juan Niño de Tabora across the Pacific Ocean was attributed to the wooden image of the Blessed Virgin Mary he brought to this town– thus the title ‘Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage’.
There are already large malls in Antipolo City. If you cannot find some items or sizes of your favorite brands in the city, perhaps they have it here in one of the malls in Antipolo.

How to go to Antipolo from Quezon City:
Antipolo is only an hour away from Quezon City during weekends. You can ride the LRT line 2 going to Antipolo station. Outside Antipolo station, there will be a number of Jeepneys going to ‘Antipolo Simbahan’. The total roundtrip fare will only cost around 150 philippine pesos (2 US dollars) per person. Although there are vans going to Antipolo, we prefer the jeepneys because of its cool young drivers playing Filipino rap songs on loud stereos.
