Travel to Bicol in Luxurious Style in Oversized Bus Couches
Today, a trip to Bicol usually takes six hours if you take a bus (or five hours if the bus makes no stops). Ten years ago, it took more than 12 hours to journey from Manila to Albay by land.
In a comment on its Facebook page, bus company Bicol Isarog revealed that it is offering oversized “lazy seats” for the Bicol-Naga route. The bus has two reclining leather seats in front, which will set you back by P2,000. The other premium seats at the back cost P1,250.
The bus company is known for its premium service, with some trips having an onboard attendant. The buses also have their own restroom, which translates to fewer stops, resulting in faster trips.
Starting October 25, its air-conditioned buses will also allow passengers to carry 20 kilos of baggage, free of charge. For ordinary (non-air-conditioned) buses, passengers are allowed to carry 25 kilos of baggage, free of charge.
