Discovering Laguna De Bay

The word Angono(Ang-ngo-no or Ang-go-no) came from the words “Ang Nuno”. Yes, nuno, a dwarf like creature in the Philippine mythology. I do not know much about the history of this myth but from what I’ve heard, a lot of “Engkanto” are lurking in the town.

Angono is the Art Capital of the Philippines. There are countless art galleries and exhibits here! I’ve been to a few of them and one of my favorites is in Balaw-Balaw, an exotic restaurant and gallery. You can try on the costume of the famous higante there. It’s not as heavy as I thought it would be.

I have seen Laguna De Bay from afar but, I’ve never had a chance to explore it back in the day. I didn’t know there’s a small community and a park in that area until I went last week. I was really surprised of how beautiful the lake was.

The bangkeros offered us a boat ride for only 20 PHP! I enjoyed it but I was busy adjusting the settings of my analog camera to get a perfect sunset shot. I would do it again for sure. No GoPro, no iPhone, nothing.

If you’re coming from Cainta, take a jeepney that says “Angono” and tell the driver to drop you off at the municipal hall. There are a lot of trikes there, just tell the guy to take you to Wawa Lake.

Coming from Cainta going to Angono will only take 15-20 minutes by jeepney and about 5 minutes from the municipal hall to the lake.

What are the costs?

15 PHP – Jeepney Ride

25 PHP – Tricycle Ride (for 2 persons)

20 PHP – Boat ride

If you’re coming from somewhere in QC, take LRT2 going to Santolan Station and a jeepney to Angono.

I’ll end it here! Go ahead and visit Angono, Rizal. 🙂
