Las Pinas neighbours Manila on Luzon Island, and is a popular stop among visitors to the Philippines. Housed in the charming San Jose Church, the unique sound of its bamboo organ 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. Las Pinas is celebrated for being both clean and eco-conscious, with visitors finding some fantastic guesthouses and restaurants in the village.
