TOURIST INFORMATION FOR TRAVELLERS TO MANILA,
SUBIC BAY CITY PHILIPPINES:
Subic Bay city is not that nice but it has everything that one needs if you decide to go into town like Jollibee but its pretty rough more like a cowboy town. The City of Olongapo at the city is known by provides the anchor of support for the area, and includes the Subic Bay Freeport Zone and parts of the provinces of Zambales and Bataan. Theres a market that sells imported chinese goods from jeans to shirts etc and all price appear to be set prices and not that cheap really. Travel to the Philippines, Subic Bay - Olongapo. Basically the start of the city is where you buy your bus tickets on the Victory Bus Transport or the mini bus.
On the corner main road you can get a Blue jeepney for 12P to town. The jeepney stops by the Victory Bus station and here you can get a bus to Manila for 210P and its OK contrary to what other websites may say. It aren't dangerous as many expats take this route
or the mini bus 12 seater Van to Angeles below which leave its depot next to the Victory Bus Terminal every hour @ only 130P for the trip. It Ok and a good alternative to the cost you pay on Fly the Bus if you want to take the Jeepney into town about 10 minutes ride @ 12P.
Right next door to the Victory Liner Terminal this minibus 12 seater leaves every 1 hour for Angeles for 130P & most expats know it. Takes 90 minutes to Angeles and returns as well. Theres a small supermarket and bread stall in the Victory Terminal.
The square is by the Victory Bus terminal--yes that the bus on the left of the monument. Picture is taken from the JOLLIBEE fast food upstairs and looks down at the Chieftain Olongapo. Olongapo is derived from the legend about a well loved chief called Apo, whose headless body was found at the beach of the fishing village. The discovery becomes a rallying cry for unity for the demoralized tribe. So "Ulo ng Apo" or head of the Chieftain became the name of the fishing village on the shores of lovely Suic Bay.
On this corner the jeeps turn into this street so you get off here. You will see the Victory Bus Terminal behind me. Remember to get back to Subic neaches take the Blue jeepney that says Subic on the side or Olongapo.
