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.
You can book trips in advance either online or via Ticket Booth 1, Counter 6 or 7, located on the second floor of PITX. When we checked the Bicol Isarog website the one-way fare from PITX to Virac is P1,350 for the regular bus. From Virac to PITX, it’s P950 for the economy (non-aircon) bus and P1,350 for the regular bus.
Buses depart from PITX at 4:30pm daily, and from Virac at 11am daily.
How does a bus trip all the way to Bicol sound like to you?
