There are places that I would always love to go back. One of them is the humble town of Calasiao in Pangasinan. The peaceful St. Peter and St. Paul Parish Church, the colorful and appetizing Puto Calasiao (rice cake)will surely be a quick buy for you to drop by this town. I on the other hand fell in love with this town that is why I keep going back whenever I have chance.
Its the kind of traveler in me that keeps me going back. I’m a type who would not only love to cherish the experience, I’m a type who would love to repeat the feeling in that place. I’ve been to El Nido, Palawan many times and still I’m longing for its turquoise water and fine sand beaches.
St. Peter and St. Paul Parish Church
Calasiao is around 20 minutes away from Dagupan City, the commercial capital of Pangasinan. If you take a bus from Manila, you’ll pass by Calasiao.
Puto Calasiao is a delicious delicacy gone famous all over the country. You can buy it here in Manila and they claim that its Puto Calasiao. But its different when you buy it in Calasiao after you visit the St. Peter and St. Paul Parish Church. For Php25.00 you can have this snack for yourself. You can buy for your family for Php100 per kilo. Just make sure to tell the vendor that you will bring it to Manila otherwise they will just pack it in plastic. It has to be in a paper plastic with banana leaf inside to make it long lasting.
Thank to the new Supremo4K for letting me capture the town of Calasiao in action and in style.
How to go to Calasiao
From Manila, take a bus bound to Dagupan or Lingayen. Tell the conductor to drop you in Jollibee, Calasiao. In front of Jollibee, take a jeep with Calasiao signage. It will take you to Calasiao’s St. Peter and St. Paul Parish Church. Adjacent to the church are the vendors selling the mouthwatering Puto Calasiao.
