With fuel prices as high as they are these days, road trips have become such expensive affairs. But hey, if you want to go out for a quick vacation, why not just take the bus?

Here’s a potential destination: Catanduanes. There are buses headed to the Municipality of Virac available daily via the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX). Granted, this trip won’t purely be land travel as it will entail a quick RORO ride, but it will still save you from having to spend a pretty penny on fuel.
