Sampaloc Lake is beautiful, almost in the city centre - good markets, great old church - nearby are the other 6 lakes, Villa Escudero (worth a visit), and Alaminos (on the main road about 7 km before San Pablo) which is the departure point for Hidden Valley springs (also worth a visit, even if rather expensive).
