Here’s one of my latest web projects. Penafranciaresort.com one of the pioneering resorts at Naga City in Bicol.They have been in the resort business since 1970.
Virtual Tours are available if you want to see the facilities first, in 360 degrees! and they already had their first booking because of the website. Come and view the city too, coz they have pages dedicated in promoting Naga.
Have you ever been to Bicol? Have you seen the Majestic Mayon Volcano? Have you visited the Virgin of our Lady of Penafrancia? Or the CWC Watersport Center in Pili?
Why not plan a trip this summer with your family and friends and enjoy the beauty of Bicol. By land trip, you can take the aircon buses at the Araneta Center.
Or take a 9 hour drive with your car. Better yet bring along with you a group. Manila to Naga is about 9 hours. This can be broken down to 3 legs.
* Ist leg is from Manila to Lucena City about 3 1/2 hours drive
* 2nd leg Lucena to Calauag about 2 1/2 hours drive
* 3rd leg Calauag to Naga City about 3 hours drive.
It is recommended that you leave Manila about 5 A.M. No problem with clean toilets as there are lots of Petrons, Shell and Caltex stations along the way. Lunch? No problem too. In Lucena you have Maxs, Jollibee, McDonalds,etc.
But I like eating in the native restaurants along the way. If you’re not in a hurry you can have your lunch at PalayIisdaan inbetween Tayabas and Lucban in Quezon . Very good native food. Inihaw na baboy per kilo , Fresh tilapia, veggies, lots of other goodies for a very reasonable price. Or at LITA’s Seafood Restaurant, along the National Highway in Atimonan. (You will not miss it there are lots of cars and trucks parked on the right side of the road if your going to Bicol.)
On the 3rd leg starting in the town of Calauag. The next concern is not to miss the turn going to The Quirino Highway now Andaya Highway. You will see a sign to TAGKAWAYAN . The idea is not to pass to DAET AS THIS WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL 2 HOURS DRIVE. so from Calauag its TAGKAWAYAN, DEL GALLEGO, RAGAY, LUPI, SIPOCOT. From Sipocot to Naga is an easy 45 to 1 hour drive.
