Transport to Concepcion, Tarlac

Hi,

May I know how can I travel to Concepcion from either Manila or Clark Airport? If someone can guide me specifically to Malupa, it will be even better.

I was told to take a bus bound for Baguio and alight at a place call Santiago. It is mentioned that this will be better but the problem is I do not even know where is this Santiago!

Thanks in advance.

Correct, take a bus to Baguio as it will pass by Tarlac. I don't know also Malupa as it is just a small district out of hundreds in Tarlac province. For sure the bus driver would be happy to drop you off in any point in Tarlac if just tell him where you will be going as he can suggest you a better way how to get to Malupa.

By the way, what are you going to do or see in Malupa?

Kegler,

Do you still remember why I wanted to visit Philippines in the first place? The reason is to visit my ex-domestic helper. Weeks before I set-off for Manila, she disappeared.

Now she appeared again and ask me why I did not visit her? The reason she gave me for not picking up my call is "my handphone spoilt."

I almost fainted when I heard this.

So now I know she actually stays in Tarlac, Concepcion and in a small rural place call Malupa.

I was stll wondering should I visit her and by pure coincicdence, Airphil Express is offering tickets to Singapore and vice versa for these 2 days.

Please don't tempt me. :)

Hahahha......

mousehunt, I really admire you for going out of your way to visit the most unlikely destinations here and using public transportation at that.

I have no recent experience of taking the bus to Tarlac or Baguio (last time was decades ago) but just want to point out that buses to Baguio can either take the old way (MacArthur Highway) or the new way (SCTEx). If you intend to get down in Concepcion from a regular Baguio bound bus, make sure you DO NOT take the bus which goes on SCTEx. SCTEx actually has an exit ramp at Concepcion, but since the buses there are express, they will not exit there. The regular buses on the other hand will go right through Concepcion.

Good luck!

Hi haribon01,

Thanks for your advice.

Most probably I will get lost in Concepcion and I really need to have a Plan B if that happens.

The next nearest city will be AC and will definitely will have to find my way there before nightfall!

Why don't you contact her prior your arrival. I am sure she wants to fetch you at the airport. Let her do that so you would experience the real Filipino hospitality from the moment you step out of the airport.
