Quezon Province - Abound for Nature Adventure


Quezon Province; my bloodlines stay with you..

Quezon Province is known as the the 8th largest province in the entire Philippine Archipelago. In the middle of Sierra Madre; the Philippine Sea; and Bondoc Peninsula, Quezon Province boast for its natural resources where land and water provide the basic needs of the Quezonians. Needless to say that tourist destinations abound the islands of Quezon. Just by entering the first town of Quezon; you do not have to hunt for the scenic view. It will just appear continuously as you travel the vastness of the land.

As a native born of Quezon; Buenavista to be specific; I knew by heart that Quezonians are peace-loving people and they do define what fun means on their festivities.

My Family and I; as usual as we can, drove back to our province last April 19, year 2012 to attend our Grand Reunion. Since I started to do this blog and listed the places I would wish to visit; I already planned of showing you the possible or even existing tourist attractions in Quezon.

I also would want to impart my ideas of improving each of the places I stepped on to attract visitors from other places.

To go to Quezon; expect a long and winding road showcasing the forest and the sea. We tried two of the possible route going there and returning to Manila on this trip. We took the infamous "Bitukang Manok" or the Atimonan Zigzag road; derived it's name on the chicken intestines. This is not just an ordinary road to travel; extra cautions are necessary as it is very steep. However; there is a ready diversion route that may have been considered winding roads too but not as steep as the Bitukang Manok if you want to play safe on your travel. The good thing about choosing the "Bitukang Manok" is that you will also experience the beauty of the Quezon National Park; a well-kept forest that offers travelers the full view of Manila and Quezon at its peak.

Estimated Travel Time to reach Tiaong; the first town of Quezon from Manila is about three hours traveling by car and bus. Buses going to Lucena and Bicol are your options. Depending on your destination; the travel time increases. On our side; it took us 6 hour-travel time to reach Buenavista, Quezon. It could be more if you're commuting. Stop-over to Lucena Grand Terminal is offered on long-distance travel.We opted to take our lunch in my father's favorite restaurant just along Gumaca's Highway; Lita's Carinderia. They offer variety of Quezonian's favorite viands like "ginataan", "sinigang", etc.

Continuation of this trip:

Buenavista, Quezon: Now and the probable Then
San Narciso, Quezon: A Clean and Green Haven
