UP ELBI AND FAMOUS ATTRACTIONS IN LOS BANOS

CHEAP HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS IN PAGSANJAN, LAGUNA
A few months back, I got the chance to visit Los Banos in Laguna. According to locals it started all out as a small bay, Laguna called “Mainit” or hot in english and because the area has lots of hot springs heated by the Mount Makiling, it was then renamed Los Banos.
 
 
I was told that these hot springs have healing powers which probably may have contributed to the legend of Maria Makiling.

One thing I love about Los Banos is that recently residents or people from Los Banos, Laguna came up with the decision to ban plastic bags which is really excellent.
 
Plastic bags can no longer be found here. Even large fast food chains do not use plastics anymore .
 
I wish the same ordinance will soon be applied in Metro Manila as well. So if ever you visit ELBI, bring your own shopping bags.
 
 
History said University of The Philippines in Los Banos, Laguna was established on March 6, 1909. However classes started in June 1909.
 
During the  Japanese war, UP Los Banos was closed and converted as a camp for allied nationals and became a headquarters of the Japanese army. For three years, the university was a home to several civilians, mostly Americans that were captured by the Japanese forces.

 

In November 1972, it was established as the first autonomous campus. New colleges and research centres were created.

 

The University is home to hundreds of organizations. From stage plays, musical concerts and performances, camps, outreach programs and other cultural activities.

Places of interest in Los Banos

Tanghalang Maria makiling – it’s an auditoriun with a seating capacity of 1800. Located on the plateau of the National Arts Center. It’s cool you will see the great views of crocodile lake, towns of Laguna, Mount Banahaw and a lot more.
 
  • Buy milk and yogurt at Dairy Training and Research Institute
  • Explore Makiling Botanical Gardens
  • Riceworld Museum 
 
You love picnics? Go to the mountain sides of Mount Makiling. Enjoy the Olympic size swimming pool with giant trees all over the place. Weekdays would be the best since weekends are jam-packed with kids with their families.

Who would forget the picture perfect Fertility tree? It’s located at the end of the oval field of the campus. I was told, it’s a placefor student couples. The tree has a fertility powers according to locals. 

 

Explore the forest. I have never seen those giant trees ever in my whole life. It was a great experience to see trees all over the place and we all know it’s standing there for ages already.
 
 
You can also visit the Makiling Botanic  Gardens, the Magnetic Hill, The ELBI square is the best place for night parties. Here you can find various establishments from coffee shops, restaurants, food shops and a lot more.
