Subic Day Trip

This was a side trip from our Pampanga (Hot Air Balloon Festival) trip. Since it’s only more or less 2 hours away from Lubao, we decided to make the most out of our occasional (or more likely rare) escapades. We only had 9 hours to enjoy Subic and we had not planned anything but to spend the late afternoon by the beach. We arrived by 9 AM and the first thing we did was find a place to eat and to plan. We chose to do all these at Hotshots.

I love their caramelized onions burger!

We considered going to Zoobic Safari and Ocean Adventure but since we only had little time to spare, we found it best to go to Tree Top Adventure instead. There are many “adventures” to choose from but we only chose Superman and Tree Drop.

For lunch, we just bought pizza from S&R, chips and drinks from Puregold and ate inside the car. After eating, we went for an afternoon swim at the Ocean View Beach Resort. I think the entrance fee is P150/person. Just so you know, there are a lot of other beach resorts to choose from (with varying rates, of course).

We did all that we could – swim, play volleyball, take pictures, sight-see, lay on the beach and wait for the sunset – and had so much fun that when it was time to go home, I felt somewhat sad. Haha!
