In Zambales , its very close to Angeles , Pampanga . The journey is an hour by an uncomfortable van . You get Olongapo , where you can ride a jeepney to the beach .
I visited Subic a few times , its not a paradise beach . But , the water is warm and you can see starfish , its a local beach .
An interesting thing ! In Philippines , as touristic place , you need to pay breathing . They charge , 25 pesos – half USD , entrance . But , they dont take care of the beaches , they are very dirty .
A little trick to avoid the stupid entrance ! You are in Philippines , for the good things and for the bad things !! There is always a broken fence . So you can go inside without paying !! Nobody , its gonna be watching !! They are always in the entrance !
In Subic , we visited the zoo , with Rachel and Han . Its always nice to watch animals . Prices are expensive . Once , you are inside , they try to charge money everytime for taking pictures with animals . There was a Tiger tour , included with the ticket . They tried to organize somehow that you can buy chicken to throw to the tiger !! They encorege you to share with the other people . Its just 70 pesos !! I didnt buy anything !!
To get to the zoo by public transportation , by jeepney , it wasnt easy . We had to ask many people . Everybody was telling us by taxi . But , prices were expensive , it was 20 kilometers . Finally , we rode a jeepney and after that we walked 20 minutes to get the zoo . On the way back , we hitchhiked to Olangapo !!
