Dingalan is for nature-lovers. Good Hiking and sea-exploring opportunities exist for adventurous travellers. Those looking to get away from it all will have no problem doing so here.
Aurora is about five hours drive from Manila where the last couple of hours will be spent on the Sierra Madre Range. Genesis Bus Lines has early morning trips from Pasay. Alternately, you can travel first to Cabanatuan City and ride D'Liner going to Dingalan. There are also aircon vans for rent from Cabanatuan City Central Terminal.
I have taken this trip with my best travel bud Dong Ho. Check out his entry on Dingalan, Aurora as it is nestled by mountains here.
