    Public Transport to Anilao

    Mga Kapatid,

    Is there any other public transport to Anilao aside from chartering a van?

    We have some foreign friends who are asking how they can get to Anilao via public transport.

    Thanks in advance!

    commuting there is really easy. Take the tritam bus to batangas city or lemery. It'll pass by bauan which is where you want to get off. From there you take the jeepney to mabini which will pass by Anilao pier. Get off at Anilao pier. From there, you either take the jeepney or a tricycle to the resort of your choice (the jeepney stops running after 5:30pm). So let's break it down cost wise:

    1.) Tritam bus to Bauan (around P100)

    2.) Jeepney to Anilao Pier (around P20)

    3.) Trikie to Resort (around P80 to AquaV)

    It's about a 3.5hr trip from the tritam bus station.

    Twin rocks is right infront of Dive Planet Resort. I liked the macro there.

    Happy diving!
    and a more recent one:

    Current price for car/ van service to Anilao?

    And then back....

    But traveling light is important. Dunno how easy it'll be with the DSLR, housing, and strobes...

    yeppers. Tritam = Jam liner buses I believe. The station is the corner of southbound EDSA and GMA Kamuning. First one out leaves around 5am.

    Arguing with some people is like mud wrestling with a pig. The only thing is that you get dirty, and the pig likes it....
