Balatero to Batangas Pier
When you’re done having fun with BADLADZ here in Puerto Galera, here is how you go back to Manila. It’s pretty easy actually, If you are staying at BADLADZ Beach and Dive Resort, you will need to take a tricycle to Balatero pier.
Same as when you are coming from Batangas to Puerto Galera, the fare here at Balatero Port will be around 300 – 500PHP depending on the class of the ferry.
There are a couple of ticketing offices here so make sure to check the first ferry that goes to Batangas Port. They usually post the time of departure outside their ticketing offices.
Get your ticket and standby for boarding when the ferry is ready. Travel time is 1 hour or less for Fast Craft and 2 hours for RORO. Once you arrive in Batangas, the next step is to take a bus to Manila.
Batangas Pier to Metro Manila
The best option for you to get a bus is to go to the Batangas City Bus terminal, the bus here leaves every 30 minutes. To get here you will need to take a trike from the pier.
There are two types of trike there, you can get a trike with other passengers for 50PHP or you can charter your own trike for 100 PHP going to Batangas bus terminal. The image below will show you where to get your trike.
Once you arrive at the terminal, look for your bus that has a sign that reads like this…
This bus will take you to Manila within 1 to 1.5 hours. You can get off at Delarosa Street which has Buendia Train Sation or at the Bus Terminal. From there the next step is to get a taxi to the airport.
How to Get to the Manila International Airport from Manila Bus Terminal
Now we are close to our destination, if you get off at Delarosa you can get a metered taxi there that can take you to the airport.
Find the taxi you will use by asking them if they will use their meter. If they won’t, shut their door and go to the next one.
If they agree, make sure they turn on their meter before you they leave. Sometimes they will start talking to you so you forget and they conveniently forget.
Watch this short video about using taxis for you to avoid getting ripped off.
If you get off at Dela Rosa Street near the Buendia station and you are going to terminal 1 or terminal 3 here are the fastest route, see images below.
