I was asked by a friend why would I want to travel all the way to Pangasinan (which is about 105 Miles away from Manila) just to visit a church and attend a mass- when I could do just the same in any church in metro manila.
For a moment, I thought, she actually has a point.
But this hasn’t stopped me from going to Dagupan Bus Company terminal in Cubao and traveled for four hours to visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Manaoag.
I took the bus with Manaoag/ Dagupan signboard (the route is actually Cubao- Dau- Tarlac- Manaoag- Dagupan) and it left by 2:30am. I was told that there are buses that leave the terminal every 30 minutes. For real time schedule and bus fares you can check their facebook page.
