Lucban Warnings and Dangers

  • Cutting Trip of Tricycle Drivers

    We hailed a tricycle to go back to the highway near Southern Luzon Polytechnic University (SLPU)where we parked our car. I instinctively asked the driver if he could bring us exactly where we wanted to go. He said he'll probably just drop us off at the bridge if there was still heavy traffic due to the parade. I said the parade was over, and that...

    Basic Necessities of Travelers

    Luggage and bags: Small backpack or beltbag will prove to be more convenient for you, especially when you have to carry a camera.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: T-shirts or blouses made of light, breathable fabrics like cotton; capri pants or "tokong" (just above or just below the knee shorts); comfortable rubber shoes (don't use flipflops or sandals unless it's okay for you to be stepped on by the crowd); folding umbrella & hat

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Hand sanitizer or small alcohol bottle; wet wipes; tissue paper or paper towel; your maintenance medicines; basic first-aid (anti-diarrhea/anti-hyperacidity, paracetamol, band-aid)

    Photo Equipment: Digicam/ videocam; monopod; extra batteries & memory cards

    Miscellaneous: Small bottle of mineral water to fit your backpack; big ziploc bag to fit in Lucban longanisa and to shut its strong smell.

  • Lucban route

    by marpiacasino Written Jul 13, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 1st option:
    you can take a bus going to Sta. Cruz Laguna. Inform the conductor na baba ka ng Pagsawitan terminal then me mga jeeps doon going to Lucban. This route is much faster at medyo maganda ang biyahe dahil halos lahat ng madadaanan mo from right after Sta. Cruz is Pagsanjan, Cavinti, Luisiana e medyo buludundukin at malamig ang simoy ng hangin as you travel sa jeep. I normally use this route kahit me dala ako car or commute kc mas mabilis ang biyahe as there's not much traffic to deal with. By the way, jeep from pagsawitan to Lucban is only until 7pm. Pero pag pahiyas time 24 hours ang biyahe.

    2nd option:
    you can also take a bus going to Lucena. Baba ka ng grand terminal then you can take jeep going to Lucban.

    Fondest memory: It's different spring resorts where you can swim. While swimming you can put your drinks in the water and within few minutes malamig na siya as if galing sa ref so you don't need an ice to cool your drinks. Unless you like that the icy drinks then you should bring ice.

    Also, the people who are fun loving. Konting katuwaan me inuman na hehehe.......

    And the famous "Kamay ni Hesus" where a healing mass is held every Mondays and Saturdays by Father Faller.
