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!

    Rizal: How to Get to Antipolo Church, Map, Commute, Directions for Car Blessings

    For those looking for up-to-date and accurate information on getting to Antipolo Church (as this has been asked so many times in the past) where Tutubi passes by en route to his hometown Paete, Laguna.

    If you want to visit the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, Antipolo at the Antipolo Church, buy some Antipolo pasalubong like kasuy, suman or have your new car blessing.

    First, Click here for an updated and accurate street map of Antipolo via OpenStreetMap.

    1. How to commute to Antipolo Church:

    1.1 take the FX Shuttle service to Antipolo, available at
    1.1.1 Gabriela Silang Car Park, Makati Avenue corner Ayala Avenue, Makati City
    1.1.2 SM Megamall
    1.1.3 Robinsons Galleria
    1.1.4 LRT 2 Santolan Station
    1.1.5 Gateway Mall, Cubao, Quezon City (near LRT 2 Cubao Station and MRT Araneta Center Cubao Station)

    1.2 Jeepney to Antipolo, Rizal:

    1.2.1 Jose Rizal University (JRU), Shaw Boulevard (Kalentong), Mandaluyong
    1.2.2 Starmall, EDSA, Mandaluyong
    1.2.3 EDSA Central station, Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong
    1.2.4 LRT 2 Santolan Station
    1.2.5 Tanay, Rizal (where you can get there via Siniloan, Laguna from Sta. Cruz)

    1.3 Bus to Antipolo, Rizal:

    EMBC bus line serves the Divisoria to Antipolo route

    no idea on the jeepney fare to Antipolo. some jeepney routes may also require a tricycle ride
    to get there usually from Quezon

    2. Driving Directions to Antipolo Church:

    From Makati, head towards C-5, turn right to Ortigas Avenue, pass the so called junction of Cainta,
    pass Tikling junction (right turn then U-turn then right turn again)
    until you get to Sumulong Circle where you turn left then right going to the road to Antipolo Church

    From Quezon City and Marikina, this route is the better and faster than traffic-heavy Ortigas Avenue:
    take c5 then Aurora Boulevard. Proceed to Marcos Highway all the way pass SM Masinag where you turn right
    at the Masinag Junction. Go up all the way to Sumulong Circle (where the new Antipolo Public market is being built and where most vehicles turn left). Instead of turning, just go straight ahead then turn left to follow the map of Antipolo.

    From Laguna and Quezon provinces, Antipolo can be reached via Siniloan and Tanay and Manila East Road, about 1.5 hours travel time from Paete, Laguna

    Other interesting places to see and visit in Antipolo:
    Ynares Center, Hinulugang Taktak and the pasalubong stores

    As of now, Which way is better and faster if I'm from las pinas, via marcos or ortigas ave? I'm bringing my new car tomorrow to have it blessed and I've never been to antipolo ever since.
