how to commute from canyon cove nasugbu to manila

lance said...

hi jean, to commute to manila, you can ride a jeep to the bltb bus terminal, and then ride a bltb bus to pasay/taft/rotonda. We've heard though that the bltb bus no longer operates to nasugbu, so we recommend asking the jeepney driver to verify. If there are no bltb buses from nasugbu, you can ride a jeep to calatagan, and ride a bus to pasay/taft/rotonda from calatagan. hope this helps!

emeyardyey said...

How many hours from lucena to sto. tomas batangas? Then how many hours from sto. tomas to mabini/ anilao? thanks!

lance said...

Hi emeyardyey, the travel time from Lucena to Sto. Tomas, Batangas would be around 1-2 hours. From Sto. Tomas, Batangas to Manini / Anilao, it would take another 1-2 hours. Of course these estimations depend may change depending on the traffic situation. Hope this helps!
