Calamba

Calamba, “Cradle of our National Hero”

As birthplace of the country’s national hero, Calamba’s role in history can never be repealed nor discounted.  It is actually the prime attraction why tourists both local and foreign never lost interest in visiting the country particularly the city.  Moreover, the tag “Hot Spring capital of the Philippines” brought additional charisma and now considered a tourist haven of Laguna.
