i'm planing stay at Batangas for 2 days in sep.
Any one can help me more information about batangas? are there many interesting activities there, inspite of diving?
which hotel in Batangas is recommended?
Thanks a lot~
I plan to visit batangas city on the first day, and go diving on the second day.
Would you mind give me some suggestion about where i should not miss there?
I will depart from Lucban. If like you said, it is not worth to spend 2 days in Batangas...
so what if I re-arrange my tour Lucban-Tagaytay-Batangas? it means I will spend 1 day in tagaytay to visit Taal volcano & 1 day in Batangas to go diving. i'm thinking of the time on bus to go from spot to spot, and it won't be enough time to join the view, aiyooo @_@
Any suggestion for me?
with 2 days, just limit yourself to diving. Batangas is huge
how should I fill up my 2 days in Batangas, except diving?
Linda, I asked my niece who is a diver. According to her, the best dive sites in Batangas are in Anilao, not very far from Batangas City. You can Google Anilao Diving Spots for your options. However, my niece also said she doesn't dive during that period as September is still rainy season so choppy waves result to poor visibility. You might not have a good time. The best time to dive in Anilao is between November and June.
Btw, Linda, off topic but since you'll be staying in Lucban with your friend, you two can go to nearby (about 30 minutes trip) Taytay Falls in Majayjay, Laguna.
hi Cyndy, thanks a lot for your informative feedback.
I will re-consider and plan my trip carefully ^_^
Linda, is it imperative for you to go to Batangas? Or is it something you can forego and replace with another itinerary?
In Laguna/Quezon alone, there are already places that you can visit. As Cyndy mentioned, you can go to Majayjay which is near Lucban. Another falls that you can visit (day trip) is Pagsanjan Falls. Laguna & Quezon are also teemed with old churches. Then, there's this road trip called "Viaje del Sol" that you can pattern your itinerary after. It's composed of visits to pottery, garden restaurants, organic farms, spas, etc.
Maybe if you can provide us with an overview of your stay (i.e. how many days in Lucban and how many days for other places; your interest or preference, etc) then we can help you come up with an itinerary.
Thank everyone for the willing help.
I'm a little bit wondered abt my trip since I posted the question. In my initial schedule, I planned to spend 1 day in Lucban (banahaw), 2 days in Batangas and 1 day in Manila (the last day)..coz I have only 4 days in Phil. As like you said Sep is not good time for diving, well, I should have my alternatives for the trip?!?!
What if I plan 2 days in Lucban, 1 day Tagaytay & the last day in Manila?
Please give me a suggestion. Thanks ~
