It’s our 5th day on our Lakbay Norte Bus which is fast becoming our mobile home after staying inside it on the road for days. On my little corner of the bus I already know the idiosyncrasies of my reclining seat, how our bus help Kenneth know I prefer Fit & Right Pine Orange and like the spice of Labzter snack than Tempura, and how I can efficiently arrange my stuff whenever we leave and board the bus. We got a few more days to go and this time, we found ourselves in Lucap for the Hundred Islands Tour.
One of the more popular destination in the Philippines is the 100 Islands. These popular cluster of islands are found in Alaminos, Pangasinan, about 4-5 hours drive from Manila going north. From Punta Riviera, Bolinao where we stayed in Pangasinan, it’s a 45 minutes drive back to Alaminos. And from Alaminos town proper, its a few minutes drive to Lucap port where the DENR station is located. It’s my second time visitng this place and thought to bring my family here as well when we went to Pangasinan since they haven’t been here.
Just got back home from a weekend in Pangasinan to visit the Hundred Islands. It was one hell of a road trip. Before that we had to decide wether to take the car or the bus. We ended up taking the bus.
What do I think of the 100 Islands? Well it’s OK. Not impressive really but it’s nice though. Never go to Quezon Island (The pic above where I’m standing), because it’s very crowded. One of our companions named it “Luneta” Island instead. We stayed overnight at Governor’s Island, the Island with the highest point among the islands there.
Well gotta go, I’m sleepy now, it was a long weekend. Will be writing more about it later. But what’s important is we already crossed that out of our list. 🙂
