Nakapag 'Lakbay' Ka Na Ba?

When you are a mother of school children, it's nearly impossible to avoid being a chaperone in field trips. It's like an item in our Mommy's Accomplishment List that needs to be ticked before they finish elementary education.

So I do it annually, sometimes twice if I get lucky enough to get invited by my youngest daughter to accompany her instead of her Lola (her preference).

This year brought us to Lakbay Museo, a travel-themed museum featuring the different regions of the Philippines. The tour allows visitors to "experience" Philippines' top destinations as well as its select delicacies in less than two hours.

Visitors start the tour with booths featuring Cebu's Taboan Market where heaps of various dried fishes are displayed. Close by are a fruit stand corner, a setup of a fish stall and a carinderia where you can exchange your chips (given at the entrance) for some Filipino snacks.


Filipino festivals and traditions are also featured like Lucban's famous Pahiyas Festival complete with the colorful façade, lantern and native desserts.

Who would dare miss our famous lechon?

I'd say the highlight of the tour is the cultural show presenting dances from various regions. Guests are invited to join the performers towards the end of the show.

Museum tour fees is at Php799 per head inclusive of 12 chips that can be used to buy snacks like lugaw (congee), sago't gulaman and kakanin inside the museum.

Tickets may also be purchased in advanced online at a cheaper price of Php699 per head. For more details, please visit
