The drive tourism arm of the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP) is holding a "Drive, Dine, and Discover" caravan across Cavite this weekend. 

On May 28, AAP Lakbay's caravan will visit Maragondon's Church of the Our Lady of the Assumption, listed by the National Museum as a national cultural treasure; and the Bonifacio Trial House Museum, where Katipunan Supremo Andres Bonifacio was given the death sentence by fellow Filipino revolutionaries in 1897.

Participants will also feast on a native lunch onboard a bamboo raft cruise at the scenic Inuquit River, once adjudged as among the country's cleanest and greenest body of water.

For souvenir shopping, there's Likhang Maragondon, an award-winning local enterprise which is helping revive the town's age-old weaving tradition and bamboo craft by making them available to a bigger market.

Meanwhile, pit stops in Silang include Cornerstone Pottery for artisanal craft, Ilayang Pulo Garden Center for plant shopping, and Asiong Caviteño Restaurant for a taste of heirloom specialties. 

More details are available on AAP Lakbay's website and Facebook page.
