MANILA, Philippines — Even without uttering a single word throughout the two-minute montage, Miss Universe Philippines 2021 candidate Leren Mae Bautista's tourism video of Laguna Province is a winner!

It is because of the province's innate beauty and welcoming people that Laguna shines through, and words become superfluous.

Any visitor to any part of the province would attest to its residents' charm and sincerity in receiving its many tourists.

Beautifully shot and spliced, Leren breezed through several locations gracefully that the entire video felt like a real tourism campaign material that one can use in travel fairs abroad.

 

 

Rizal Shrine

The video introduced viewers to Laguna with, aptly, the Rizal Shrine. Leren's panuelo-inspired top, complete with an abaniko, as hand accessory, harkened to the days of the Spanish occupation in the Philippines.

Paete

Leren's short stint at carving showed Paete's enduring cottage industry of arts and crafts in woodworking.

Esmeris Farm

With Leren donning a kerchief bandana before a sumptuous native delicacies spread at the Esmeris Farm made you wonder if the "dalagang Filipina" trait is still around these days.

Cavinti Falls

And true to form, in a white maillot, Leren ends her video with a pose while perched on a rock, and atop a raft, near the rapids of Cavinti Falls.
