Liliw Laguna’s Tsinelas Festival

The whole FEU-East Asia College community went to Laguna for its annual summer outing that’s why I haven’t updated my blog for quite some time. Apparently, the place where we stayed at has no wi-fi access. I will not bother to blog about the place anymore since it is just your ordinary Laguna resort. Nothing extraordinary really.

But what I do want to blog about is our sidetrip to Liliw, Laguna! They call Liliw as the Tsinelas Country of the South, or the Footwear Capital of Laguna. In this quiet and laidback little town, you can see the prettiest and cheapest footwear in the Philippine archipelago. Lucky for us, they were having their tsinelas festival when we came! There was so much to see and so much to buy! I almost hyperventilated with excitement when I saw all the tsinelas, sandals, and shoes lined up! Imagine, you can buy 3 pairs of tsinelas for only 100 pesos! I was also able to buy dressy slip-ons for only 230 pesos! Oh, I’m really sorry for all the exclamation points…I am really just so elated with the idea that I can buy so many shoes with only 1,000 pesos in my pocket. I vowed to go back there with my husband soon. I cannot wait to buy him nice tsinelas too.

Here are some of the pictures I took:


How to get there? Uhmn, I am not really good at giving directions, but this is what I gathered from my officemates:

Catch a Jam Transit Bus or Tritan Bus that is headed to Sta. Cruz, Laguna. Ask the driver to drop you at the terminal of jeepneys going to Liliw. Ask the jeepney driver to drop you off at the Liliw Church. The street full of footwear is just right beside the said church.

I sure do hope you’ll enjoy your Liliw, Laguna footwear shopping! Oooops, credit cards are not accepted. Bring cash. Lots and lots of cash!

You can also go to liliw via the San pablo route. Just ride a bus from cubao or buendia bound for Lucena. Drop at San Pablo medical center, ride a jeep gong to San pablo city proper, then ride a jeep going to Liliw.
