Trip to the Philippines: Majayjay, Laguna (home of Taytay Falls and Dalitiwan River)

Updated on September 14, 2015

"The Little Baguio of Laguna"

Some would consider Majayjay as little Baguio of Laguna in the Philippines because of its usually low temperature. No wonder because it is situated 1000 feet above sea level. In the old times, traveling to the town was very difficult, you might even blurted lots of "hay" (sighs) before reaching it. Hence the name ("maraming hay" or lots of sigh).

A simple town yet very rich in history, nature's gift, amazing folks and a whole lot more. Some old folks mentioned that even in the old times, foreigners and members of the "royal family" were visiting the place for vacation.

Majayjay is the place I grew up, savoring the sweet fresh air, enjoying the cold breeze, sleeping under the shade of trees...what a bucolic environment to get away from the busy life of the city. 'Hay' (sigh) I can't ask for more! I will always remember Majayjay as this and it is the reason why wherever I am, I always find ways to go home and feel its embrace. Whatever happens, Majayjay will always be a home for me.

Hope you can pay a visit in this small but great town. More information can be found in the brochures below.

      Using public transportation- take a jeepney going to Sta. Cruz and then going to Majayjay. The terminal of Majayjay is near the market.

      Using private transportation- Take the Sta.Cruz- Pagsanjan Road. When you see Jolibee, turn right towards Magdalena. Just follow the signs pointing to Majayjay.

      Hope this help! Thank you very much for dropping by.. Enjoy! Have a safe trip!
