there's an easier and faster way to go to Antipolo City, you will ride LRT2 from any station at Recto to Katipunan, then you will unload at Santolan station. In front of it, there are many jeeneys/fx that you can ride, travelling to Antipolo (Simabahan). fare from here is at P35.
good luck! happy trip

Alay-lakad is literally walking to Antipolo. This is a holy week activity for most of the residents who lives within the Metro Manila area. It is around 10-15kms from my place, Pasig City. Some walk without shoes or slippers because it is their "panata". Panata is something that you have to do in a particular day or time that has significance in a person's religious belief. It was my first time to join this Alay-lakad and it is quite an experience. Truly, the hospitability of the Filipinos arises on this activity. It is because there are a lot of residents offered free water to those who walk. Water is very important or else you cannot make it to your destination. Since there are quite number of people who join alay-lakad, expect uncomfortability in terms of walking. It's not a regular walk where you can have fresh air. Just bring a portable fan with you and a thermo bag to keep your water cold to freshen you up. There are number of people who smoke and also you can smell some sweat from tired people who also walk with you. There are these teen-agers who don't understand the real essence of alay-lakad. Hence, expect some unruly acts and discussions. But, above all… the alay-lakad has been peaceful and orderly because there are police visibilities on every street.
