La Virginia Escapade

Saturday, August 31, 2013

I was browsing my old pics till I saw my folder "Escapade - La Virginia". Then I scan the pictures and I suddenly miss taking a vacation and spend some time with my family and cousins. It'll be next summer again I guess. I visited this place twice already and I still haven't zoom the whole area as the first one was just a plain visit and the other one, I wasn't allowed to roam that much because of my condition (pregnancy risks). However, I was able to take some pictures of some area but I can't post it all here! Sigh! If you are listed on my facebook friends, then you can see my photo album there.

La Virginia Hotel and Resort is located at Brgy. Manggahan, Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas. It is one of the tourist spot and most likely used by companies for retreat, recreation, team building and even caters special events. When we first visited the area (2012), around 2PM in the afternoon, we don't have a parking space already. There are so many visitors because of peak season but luckily we were able to save some spot and a table because my cousin (Engr.) who used to have a project there is given a privilege and he also needs to speak with his colleague about another project. We were not able to swim too as we just have to spent a few more hours before heading back home so we quickly roam the areas nearby and take photos.

This is the hanging bridge at La Virginia Resort, my cousin's project :)
This year we were able to spent our summer escapade here along with my mom, my brother and my cousins. It was unplanned but I was glad we were able to manage to visit the place again. I was excited to take pictures at places we haven't been before. But due to my condition, I wasn't allowed to roam that much. So I haven't roam the whole place again. I guess a day is not enough too, because the vicinity is too large! If you are going to take pictures with the whole areas attraction, then you can't enjoy swimming. It should be separated from your itinerary. The entrance fee is a bit pricey and seeing the place is really worth it. If you will have to go there, it will be best if you tag your family along or in a group.
