Lemery Things to Do

  • PALANAS BRIDGE---LOCALS FISH HERE

    On the way out of town towards the bus station we had to cross over Palanas Bridge. We rested and watched the locals fish, but i guess there are not too many fish here as we did not see any of the fisherman catch anything, but it still seems a popular place for the sport. It looks very tranquil to live at the side of the river.

  • MUNICIPAL HALL

    The municipal Hall of Lemery is located at the town center on Illustre Street. It is a modern building with all the usual city departments in the large compound, and the usual statue of Jose Rizal can be seen at the front.

  • THE ORIGINAL BELL ---SAN ROQUE CHURCH

    At the front of the church you will see the old bell that is dated 1884. This was in the bell tower until 1945 when it was destroyed by an earthquake.

  • SAN ROQUE PARISH CHURCH

    THE ORIGINAL Catholic CHURCH WAS BUILT IN 1880 , but the facade was damaged during the 1945 earthquake so it was completely demolished and rebuilt. The church is in a large compound in the center of town on Illustre Street. The altar is quite impressive.

  • VISIT THE MALL

    Xentro Mall is at the northern edge of town, just after the arch and opened up in 2014. The main supermarket is Robinsons but all the usual fast food and restaurants are there as well as mercury Drug and the normal clothes outlets.

  • ARE YOU LUCKY TO LIVE HERE

    While walking down the main street i was amused to see a sign down one of the side streets that leads to Barangay Lucky. I wonder if this is the place to live----I do not think so!

  • WALK THROUGH TOWN

    We walked the length of the main street from the bridge that separates Taal fro Lemery to the other end where Robinson's Supermarket is but saw nothing of interest. The street is quite bust with traffic and it was not easy to cross the road. there are all the usual pharmacies, fast food joints, stores, pawn shops etc.

  • Fantasy World

    We had a stop over on this place hoping that we can see what's inside. The place looks beautiful. As much as we would like to go inside the theme park, we didn't. It is because the entrance fee is quite expensive. You have pay Php 1000.00 for 10 people. If you are a group with less than 10, you will still pay 1k. So, we just took pictures outside...

  • Photo Op at Fantasy World

    Fantasy World is a postcard-worthy beauty. It has a picturesque view of a castle in a mountain ridge with coconut trees and lush greens, picture-perfect blue skies and dreamy, cotton-like clouds. Like a page from a fairy tale book, Fantasy World is guarded by a dragon posted near its road entrance.I took some pictures only from the roadside of...

    Pappu's opened up here in 2014 but unfortunately it was closed in the morning when we passed by. It is not too far from Pansipit Bridge if you fancy tasting the famous pata. Crispy pata is the whole pork leg that is simmered in spices , then stored in the refrigerator overnight to dry the meat. The next day it is deep fried until it is moist and succulent. The skin is golden and crispy but just before it has finished frying a small anmount of water is added to give the skin a blistery look.

    Buses for Manila leave at the northern end of town. Several bus companies operate out of here and each has its own bus depot. there is Jam liner, Jac, and DLBT. You will see the bus depot for DLBT opposite Robinsons Supermarket (Xentral Mall) and is the furthest one to reach. the other two are 500-800 meters nearer the town center along Illustre Road. Buses got to Manila from here---Cubao, Buendia, Pasay and more.

    To take a local trip there are jeepneys and tricycles, and both have minimum fare of around 7 or 8 pesos.

Lemery Warnings and Dangers

  • Hard-Sell Street Vendors

    Resist the temptation to buy native delicacies from street vendors. If you buy something from one vendor, the others will persuade you to buy from them also. If you don't, they will narrrate their life's sob story, hoping you'll find pity on them. On a hot, sunny day, being swarmed by vendors isn't funny. The next time you think of buying "espasol"...

  • Overloaded Jeepneys

    It is a common sight to see overloaded jeepneys. Be extra careful on the road, especially when an overloaded jeepney is infront of your vehicle. Keep a distance.When we passed by the Tagaytay-Lemery National Road, we chanced upon teen schoolers standing on the jeepney's side, some sitting on the stepboard and another sitting on the roof (omg). Some...

  • Think Before Investing on Fantasy World

    Initially, we were attracted by the concept of owning shares at Fantasy Wolrd, which is an entertainment facility, theme & amusement park, and recreation club. Fortunately, my husband researched blogs & reviews before even making an inquiry, and discovered that Fantasy World is a white elephant project, with many shareholders running after them for...
