Province of Bataan Warnings and Dangers

  • Make sure you bring cash

    Particularly when going to the more remote areas of Bataan, such as Bagac, be sure to have cash in your wallet. When I went with some friends to Montemar Beach in Bagac recently, we were surprised that the establishment was not accepting credit cards and that there were no ATMs nearby.

  • Nice People's Area

    Try not to drive too fast or take the back roads with a flashy car. The "Nice People Around" don't take too kindly to that.If you do have to take a back road, try to get out and back to the main highway before it gets dark.

  • Skidding on drying rice and flat tires.

    Farmers often use the highways to dry their rice after harvesting. While this is illegal, the lack of cemented areas for drying makes the local government tolerant of the practice. They reason that it shouldn't cause that much traffic anyway this being the province. What makes the practice really troublesome to drivers is that sometimes, to...
