I'm planning the Philippines in September 2015 (Manila, Bohol). In Manila, I'm planning on visiting the American Cemetery, Correigidor, do some shopping. I'm also looking at a day trip to Bataan to the museums, memorials, and sites regarding the Death March. I have several questions.
a. I assume that the ferry (if there is one) is quicker than a car. I just want updated information on ferries/schedules and which Bataan port is best for travel.
b. Once I arrive on Bataan, are there organized tours, or is it best to do it on your own (with a taxi). Anyone know any tour operators that run trip?
c. It would be easier to do all of this out of Manila, however I can't seem to find any tour operators operating day trips to Bataan. Does anyone know and recommend one?
Thanks for all of your help.
Hi, my question pertains to the batman nuclear facility.
I read on the Internet than you can take tours, however not much information is available.
Is it open 7 days a week ?
Can I turn up at entrance and buy a ticket or do I have to go on a pre arranged organised tour?
This and any other information is greatly appreciated.
Do they still have a ferry?

Hi, I want to go to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar but I don't know how to get there. How can we get there by bus or by ferry?
we're thinking of going to the pawikan festival this end of november..
is there any backpacker-friendly accommodation that you can suggest? we're not particularly choosy. we just need a place to keep our bags safe while we go out and have fun.
are there any camping grounds available on the shores?
also, which shoreline is better? - by better, i mean, with the pawikan hatchings, which one would offer us a better view of it? and which shore has basic surfing rentals? Morong? Bagac? Or Mariveles?
i have so many questions. hehe. thanks in advance to those who would take time to give advice. :)
Has anybody been to Ciudad Real De Acuzar lately? Do you know how much is the rate? what are the amenities? May i know the contact details please. Thanks

Hi, all. I'm hoping there'd be someone who'd respond to this post soon.
I'm attending a wedding in Montemar on the 2nd. Being unfamiliar with Bataan, my friend, who is similarly not from the area, offered to pick me up from Balanga.
I'll be flying back to Manila tomorrow around 2PM. From there I plan to take Genesis bus to Balanga.
I understand the bus takes the San Fernando exit then the usual Gapan Olongapo. But my friend took SCTEX/Dinalupihan going to Bagac (he's there now), and the route he's familiar with is that.
He recommends I wait for him at Total gas station in Balanga.
1. Will the bus pass by the Total in Balanga?
2. Can I get off there? Considering it's a highway
3. And if so, what are my landmarks?
4. Also, since he'll be coming from Bagac, at which point during the trip should I text him to advise him to leave Bagac?
Thanks so much and I'm crossing my fingers for a quick reply.
How much the fee if we travel in ferry boat??
how much is the room rate for a single and double occupancy hotel rooms in ellison hotel in balanga? what are its individual amenities?

Hi everyone! I'm going to tour my foreign friend and I discovered some good reviews about Bataan. It's very accessible to Manila and there seems to be a lot of beaches there. But my problem is where to go and how to do it. To those VTers who have been there, can you please help me with an itinerary? Will go there Friday morning and if possible come back to Manila early Sunday morning. I need help on this ASAP. He's coming in a week. Any help is greatly appreciated.
where can we find a fast ferry bound for bataan? and what are the schedules? thanks need an answer right away. thanks
Please join us for a VT Day-trip Outing here in my home province Bataan. It will be on June 03,2006 (Saturday). We would visit the memorial cross in Mt. Samat, Pilar. Please check details from Meetings and Event.
Am about to roam this province and have considered taking the ferry from CCP to Orion. I need help on the following:
1. How often and until what time do jeeps/buses hop between towns?
e.g., Mariveles-Limay-Orion-Pilar-Balanga vv
or Dinalupihan-Hermosa-Orani-Samal-Abucay-Balanga vv
or Balanga/Pilar-Bagac-Morong vv
2. Would tricycles be practical/economical in roaming around a town?
(e.g., can they climb up to the foot of the Dambana Ng Kagitingan?!)
3. Where can I find rent-a-cars or car-hires? Can't seem to find any
at the province's website nor at the balanga and udyongan sites
Any info would be much appreciated. And advance thanks!
