Road Trip: Eastern and Western Pangasinan

I’m not Dora and I’m no explorer either but I love road trips. During our long leisurely drives, I normally take snapshots of places we pass by to, no matter how irrelevant it seems as long as there is scenery worth capturing on film. And as always, I upload the images into a slideshow video online.

Eastern Pangasinan

The video above feature pictures from Eastern Pangasinan towns which include the following:
  • Villasis going towards Malasiqui where there is a shortcut to Dagupan and nearby west Pangasinan towns via barangay Barraca
  • Rosales. Not the direction of SM but going further east towards Sta. Maria, then Tayug, and San Quintin. We also chanced upon nearby towns like San Nicolas, Natividad, and San Manuel in search for the elusive San Roque dam which we know no direction of. Unfortunately, visiting is only possible during weekdays and with at least a group of 10 who will be toured around through the local bus inside the facility. Many believe this security can be bypassed though if you are acquainted with someone working inside the power plant. :) It wasn’t this strict years ago when we were able to pass through the front gate on motorcycles and enjoyed the serene waters flowing from the dam towards the irrigation canals below.
  • Balungao, including the hot springs and hilltop adventure
  • Umingan, just driving aimlessly through a long cut exiting to Tayug where we dropped by both CSI and Magic in the area

Western Pangasinan

The video above features Western Pangasinan which include the following towns:
  • Sta. Barbara - going to Calasiao, Dagupan City, Binmaley, Lingayen, Labrador, Sual, and finally Alaminos City where we dropped by for Hundred Islands. Technically, we only reached the tower but didn’t board boats towards the islands because my daughter was a bit sick that time. My last visit at the islands was more than 10 years ago. :D
  • Bugallon, another long cut going back to Lingayen and towards the towns we passed by to our home town.
  • Although there were no photos of other towns, we also drove by from Dagupan to Calasiao, San Carlos, Bayambang, Basista, Alcala (to my husband’s relatives), then to Sto. Tomas, Rosales, and back home again.
The trip from Villasis to Alaminos was all in one day and it was very tiring yet fulfilling. The same applies to other road trips.
