About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Martinez' former owner is my father's best friend. d They were forced to sell their company and migrate abroad. These buses offer the best value for your money if you wanna go up north from manila. They have airconditioned and non-airconditioned buses, take your pick. They northernmost terminal is my hometown, Candon. But if you wanna go to these following locations these buses are good too: Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Tarlac. Price range is between 50-500 pesos depending on distance. They also do "paoit" or courier service, en bulk and at extremely low prices.

    this bus is good for those who want to go in the northern luzon when non airconditioned buses of philippine rabbit were diminished.

    i once travel going north most specifically candon and take sta. lucia bus going there the buses are good and clean but the trip took so long because of too many stop overs and it took 20-30 mins , the 7-8 hours rip took me 10 hour to arrive candon city, hoping this feed back will help because passengers want to reach there destination the soonest possible time

    we had bad experienced in sta lucia bus w/bus no.2811 last sunday(april 24,2011). we paid for aircon but unfortunately the aircon did not function. we had a 10hrs travel time going back to manila w/c we totally suffocate inside the bus..it was so heat inside the bus, no air..umpisa palang ng byahe mahina na ang aircon. pinilit pa rin i-byahe.sna i-check nyo muna yung bus nyo kung ok yung aircon before nyo ibyahe. lugi ang pasahero sa ginagawa nyo at yung hirap namin sa loob ng bus. over sa init at halos di na kami makahinga..paki refund yung binayad namin na para sa aircon kasi di naman aircon at mabuti pa ordinary bus, may hangin na lalanghap..kung di nyo i-refund irereklamo namin kayo sa lto at sa ibang ahensya..kawawa pasahero nyo.. la man lang aksyon na ginawa yung driver at conductor ng bus..kung di lang mahirap that time pabalik mla siguro lahat ng pasahero lumipat na ng bus..

    Balak ko pa naman sumakay dito, mahina pala ang AC ang ganda pa naman ng itsura ng bus nila. How about fare mura naman ba? sana yun bagay naman sa status ng bus nila since mahina naman ang AC.

    xavier, just because one passenger complained of mahina AC in one bus doesn't mean lahat buses nila mahina aircon or lahat bus nila ganun... :(

    Sta Lucia Express BUS 9021! Nung sumakay ako nung February 21, whoever that conductor na bastos at bingi dapat tanggalin na yan,iticket mo at pagbayarin ng mas mahal ung pasahero dahil un na ang nilagay mo, you forced them to pay that amount when it was your fault dahil mali pagkakarining mo sa place n babaan nila.Even the other passengers heard it very clear!! That's so UNFAIR!!! Hope management will give an action to this!

    Sa lahat ng sumasakay ng bus at biyahero sana intindihin niyo rin ang kondisyon ng sasakyan. May pagkakataon talaga na mangyari ang hindi inaasahan. At kahit kayo ang may-ari ng transportasyon ayaw niyo rin mangyari ang mga aberya na yan.Parang tao rin na dadapuan ka ng sakit at hindi mo alam ang oras at araw na ito'y mangyari, minsan nakaupo ka lang sa isang tabi kapos ka na sa hininga at mamatay ka.

    Sumasakay din ako ng Sta. Lucia Bus at regular na biyahero, in fairness may bago na sila units na bus at new look and rehab units na tumatakbo sa expressway na makikita. May improvement outside and inside outlook ng buses pati mga attitude ng bus crew. Ipagpatuloy niyo lang po magandang serbisyo balang araw mamayagpag din kayo kagaya ng Victory Liner, Inc.

    Sumakay kami sa Sta. Lucia Bus, sabi ng iba kaya mahal sa ibang bus company kasi mabilis pero sa other bus company inabot kami ng 9hrs. going to Candon Ilocos Sur nung pabalik dito sa Manila nag Sta. Lucia kami 6hrs. & 30mins. lang ang byahe namin. Mas mabilis na mas mura pa...",
