Inside the Malacanang of the North

Feeling like the "First Family", we can't help but have our picture taken in the lobby of the Malcanang of the North. This former presidential resthouse is now a museum of the Marcos' memorabilias.
It is a two-storey building sitting on a five hectare land which has grand living rooms, seven spacious bedrooms including the two master bedrooms.

It also has an expansive terrace, and beautiful garden with a magnificent view of the Paoay Lake.

It opened its doors in 1977. and immediately became the center of Philippine high society and one of the trendiest scenes in Asia.
