Tours and activities
A claw-shaped peninsula jutting out of the mainland, Cavite City can be a bit out of the way for most travelers but it still makes for a worthwhile trip. The pansit pusit at Asiong’s, an unassuming eatery along Paterno Street, may be the most memorable dish you’ll taste in Cavite while the Samala rice cake, sold only at Pat and Sam Delicacies, is a simple yet filling dessert. The most visited spot in Cavite City, however, is the outlying island of Corregidor, accessible via ferry from the CCP Complex in Manila. This former military outpost tells grim stories of battles and massacres, its ruins a stark reminder that our collective history is paved with blood, brutality and death.
