Las Pinas neighbours Manila on Luzon Island, and is a popular stop among visitors to the Philippines. Its bamboo organ is one of its best attractions. Housed in the charming San Jose Church, its unique sound continues to draw international organists to the city's annual Organ Festival. Travellers can also visit the Sarao Jeepney Factory, where they can view these iconic vehicles being assembled. Indeed, these gaudy, public buses have come to represent Philippine art and culture. Otherwise, Las Pinas is celebrated for being clean and eco-conscious, and is a fun area to explore. Visitors will find some fantastic guesthouses and restaurants in the village.
