Best way to get from Manila to Orion and Balanga, Bataan?

I'm trying to find the easiest way to get from Manila to Balanga. I can no longer find boat schedules from Manila to Orion, but I would think that there must be some boats running!

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Just want to share about land travel. 2.5hours by bus but it only took me 1.5hrs from trinoma to balanga with a car on an early morning drive.

If you want a reliable driver please pm touristdriver above for a price. A few members here (incl myself) have used his services and were very happy. He will ensure your safety.

Only 2 weeks ago my father used his transport service to go to Bataan and was very happy with the driving service.

Hi,

The best way is

a) Take an air con bus from Manila to Dau. I find Victory liner Edsa Cubao most convenient(there is a bus every 20 minutes) , but you can also choose Philippine rabbit, etc.

Time = 2 hours / Cost = 180 pesos

b) Outside Dau bus terminus, near Chowking, you will find many UV express vans going towards Bataan (Orion, Balanga, etc).

A suggestion - try to make the trip in the morning since there are more services then.

This page has photos of Dau bus terminus and the UV express terminal with a phoo showing the Balanga service -

By the way, here is the schedule for Dau to Balanga.

I am not sure of the services after 8 am.... I think there is a service every 1- hours thereafter, but I am not sure.
