I never thought that there is a strawberry farm here in Panay. I know that it is not a local fruit that’s why I only associate it with Baguio which is the coolest place here in the tropical country of the Philippines. I said I never thought about it, but it exists. It’s here. It is situated in San Remigio, Antique and I went there last Sunday. I was with Kristian Carl, who I know reads this blog. So I’m gonna greet you! Hi Ne! Here is the post! Basa pa more. 🙂
We took off from Miagao at around 8 in the morning and we arrived in San Jose, Antique after an hour. The bus fare was P63. We then rode a jeep from San Jose to San Remigio and travelled for almost 1 hour. We paid P27 for our ride. When we arrived in San Remigio proper, we were offered to ride a Skylab (Habal-Habal) to go to Aningalan. We agreed at the rate of P200 each back and forth.
When we arrived, we paid 30 pesos environmental fee. There was a designated guide who will be with you all through out the tour. We first went to the Igbaclag Cave and checked out two (2) different caves – one was open while the other is closed.
After that, we went to Danao Lake and rode a balsa. We paid P10 for the visit and additional P10 for the balsa ride.
Lastly, we went to the strawberry farm. I was a little disappointed because I thought there was unlimited picking for a fixed rate, but when we were there we were advised not to pick anything. So we were forced to buy a quarter kilograms of strawberries for P150 just to try the product. I did not regret it though, it was good.
It’s really nice to go to places especially those that are not yet abused. When I was there, I wished that it was my hometown. It was really beautiful and one of the top places I’ve been to. Kruhay Antique! You are amazing!
