Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar

As soon as I saw a piece of the place from the gate, my eyes and my camera got excited. This was the feeling I was expecting when we went to Vigan, Ilocos Sur which I did not get. This place was even better.

Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar is found in Bagac, Bataan which is around 150km from Manila estimated 3 hours drive. We were accompanied by a local couple who are members, as they said that this place is exclusive. It is open to the public but it looks like rates are different. It was like a time warp being there. A museum of houses in the past. No house is the same as the others and the architectures are interesting. A great place to do a photo walk but my aunts & uncles were in a hurry, so my shots were all quick. Though I would like to go back there again to practise more of photography. The place is very spacious and they were building more houses & making the place nicer. Definitely, a place to go back to.

The staff.   How cool that every staff wears the filipiniana


Reminds me of my gran's place
 

If you need a hat, they are available at the reception area

At first I find it cute they have statues of kids playing but there were plenty & it got freaky. It's like one of those scary movies where kids were playing & a witch cast a spell on them because they were noisy & happy so she turned them to stones :)

Ryan, this is in Bagac, Bataan. Better than the Crisologo Street in Vigan.

Ann, Crisologo in Vigan is authentic, whilst this one in Bataan is 100% fake.

Unknown - I agree. But I enjoyed it here :)

I want to visit this place but the entrance fee alone is quite steep :(

Find someone who is a member. We were fortunate enough that our uncle knew a member and we were able to get in for free. :)
