LOCATION & TRANSPORTATION:
About 276 kms from Manila, the town of Bolinao in Pangasinan is reachable by land that would take about six hours of travel time.
Five Star and Victory Liner are common provincial bus lines that offer day and night trips to Bolinao. With Five Star, ordinary bus fare would cost around PhP300 while PhP400 for air-con. As a tourist, it is better to get to Bolinao with your own transportation so you can easily move around the town and tourist spots or perhaps, even go on a side-trip to the nearby provinces of Subic, Clark, Tarlac, La Union and Baguio. There’s not much traffic en route to Bolinao as you can take the SCTEX (Subic, Clark, Tarlac Expressway) route. As you pass by Alaminos, the road to Bolinao starts to ascend through a zigzag road which will give you a scenic view of the mountains.
