Subic boasts of its famous dolphin and tiger theme parks, beaches, diving wrecks, zipline adventure, high-end shopping malls, and duty-free shops—you name it: Ocean Adventure, Zoobic Safari, Treetop Adventure, Harbor Point Subic, Royal and Puregold Duty Free Shops, yacht cruises, etc.—a real playground for those who can afford to pamper and give themselves a well-deserve holiday treat.
But for humble travelers who just want to see and enjoy the raw Subic, minus a whole-in-the-pocket kind of holiday, here’s what to expect in an ordinary day in Subic Bay:
Given that there is never a traffic congestion in Subic—very, very rare case when that happens—it must have been heaven for motorists.
An early morning stroll by the bay would give you a calm, scenic view and cool sea breeze, overlooking the ships in low lights while the sun is slowly coming up to greet you a nice, warm day.
And because Subic is carefully nestled at the heart of nature, don’t be surprise if you meet a tribe of hairy fellas on the road.
For the bird watchers, there are a variety of colorful birds in Subic especially near Cubi, Binictican, and Kalayaan. However, for the impatient to wait for our shy tweeter friends to fly by, these colorful birds are just sitting right there and being taken care of at the Jest Camp Aviary and Bird Park.
Play with the not-so-shy tweeter, Lorie
Or enjoy Tata Kasuy’s company and humor as he teaches you how to make fire and cook rice and sinigang in a bamboo.
Lounging in front of the bay would not leave you disappointed, too, because a little picnic by the bay while waiting for the sunset would just be delightful.
When the sun has finally come down, Subic’s lights would rival the glow of star lights at night.
Lights dazzling from The Lighthouse and the big vessles and from everywhere are but perfect to set the mood for a romantic stroll, or dinner, or whatever. ;p
Nah, no need to splurge that much to experience the best of Subic, because simply being here is just fun-tastic. 🙂
Luxurious holiday treats or just simple weekends to commune with nature, Subic offers the best of both worlds. 🙂
