To be honest, even though I’d been living in the south for a year now, I’m still not familiar with Cavite. All I know is that it’s “malayo” and “mahirap ang commute”, which is something I based on the occasional times I watched local news. Recently, I joined a bloggers’ tour in Imus, Cavite, organized by COHO by Vista Land.
There are a few interesting takeaways from this tour:
- Cavite is poised to be one of the best alternative residential locations near Manila. There is a lot of planned developments in this province, including creation of business districts and residential and commercial areas.
- Imus offers interesting local attractions for its residents.
- It’s best to buy a condo property during pre-selling period because it’s the time when prices are really low.
Anywhere, here are some of the interesting local attractions/places in Imus, Cavite.
Imus Cathedral is an old church built in the 1850s. Inside, you can find the original Nuestra Senora del Pilar de Imus (Our Lady of the Pillar).
For residents of Imus, the Imus Cathedral is an important historical site. Currently, it’s also a popular choice for wedding events.
Battle of Alapan Marker
As we all know, several important events in our history happened in the province in Cavite.
The Battle of Alapan Marker commemorates the first time the Philippine Flag was displayed by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, after a battle between Filipino revolutionaries and Spanish marines. This event markedthe establishment of the 1st Philippine Republic.
The marker features a woman holding the flag, set on a 104-feet pole. It can be found in Alapan 1 Elementary School, which is 10-15 minutes drive from the town proper.
The District is one of the commercial & lifestyle centers in Imus, Cavite. It has everything you need for shopping and eating: groceries, shopping outlets, and restaurants.
It’s also accessible via commute. There’s a PUV terminal located in front of The District.
Big Ben’s Kitchen
Big Ben’s Kitchen is a charming local restaurant in Imus. It is a family-owned business, offering heirloom Caviteno dishes.
When I first set foot in Big Ben’s Kitchen, I was immediately impressed. It was quaint and cozy. The menu consists of authentic local dishes, including the imus longganisa. This longganisa uses quality pork and doesn’t contain any preservatives.
You can also buy local products such as vinegar and fruit spreads.
Try out their breakfast meals for P199 including drinks. I also recommend their salted-egg chicken meal. For drinks, they offer glasses/pitcher of refreshing cucumber-calamansi with honey.
