I laughed when I read the post ‘cause indeed when we travel at least for a time stress and pressure are mislay. We smile and become amazed for new experiences when travelling and after that we search and look for more escapades.
Talking about travel escape, I’m a fan of it and I want to be a pro. I think it is the best way to reconnect to the real world and experience world’s amazing adventures. Adventures are everywhere and tadah! Catch them because they are one of the best memories to keep.
Exploring Puerto Galera for the first time last 2015 is my first travel escape and because of that unplanned escapade I was scolded by my project manager seriously, but it was all okay for me, my fault lol. Nevertheless, exploring Puerto Galera for the first time was really great. To give you some background about the place, here are the 6 things to do in Puerto Galera based from my own experienced.
Visit White Beach Resort
White beach resort is a famous resort in Puerto Galera commonly visited by tourist. From Batangas pier there are a big boats offer travel directly to white beach. Riding a boat is the easiest mode of transportation from Batangas Pier, but if your starting point is in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro, there are Jeepneys and a Vans in Calapan Public Market that will direct you to Puerto Galera proper. When I took my trip there I used to ride a jeepney that cost me around Php 50.00 starting point is Calapan Public Market.
Visit Tamaraw Falls
Tamaraw falls derived its name from Oriental Mindoro’s famous Tamaraw – a native buffalo. When riding a van or jeepney going to Puerto Galera proper, anyone could take a glimpse of this falls which is composed of various layers of small water falls. It stands at 423 feet covered with green plants.
Enjoy the Breathtaking Overview at Ponderasa Golf Course
Pondorosa Golf Course gives a stunning panoramic view of Puerto Galera. When I went there I just took a motorcycle together with my friend so only gasoline was my expense, no entrance fee. But when riding a tricycle from white beach it cost around 500 pesos for round trip. If you want to hike, it is also a best thing to do. There are many foreigners and even local tourist found the place great when hiking. When you get at the top you will get amazed by its cool scenery and views of the sea and hills. There you can have a glimpse of Batangas Island. You could also take a zip line ride that would cost 500 pesos each person.
Visit Villa Malasimbo
Going to Pondorosa Golf Course there’s a different way approaching and that is going to Villa Malasimbo. It is a famous place to visit while in Puerto Galera. This place is known of its music and art festival which is celebrated every second week of March.
