Let me reiterate that I super loved our visit to Pinto Gallery and Silangan Garden but as any destination, people can overshoot or have different expectations altogether. Here I list down tips and tricks on how to enjoy your trip.
- Don’t think you can exhaust every corner, manage to read through every description and appreciate each artwork because just like every museum, you won’t be able to in one day. I say take your time and enjoy whatever you can absorb instead of consuming everything in one go.
- There are mosquitoes (big ones) and they will bite you so wear pants or bring mosquito repellent.
- It can be quite humid so wear comfortable clothes. Not all areas are weather-proof so don’t dare leave that umbrella in the car.
- It is far and it’s easy to get lost in Antipolo so unless you are going with a local, get decent directions/print a map out/use GPRS.
- Cafe Pinto is pricey (it is under Bizu’s management) so pack your water bottle and some light snacks with you. Better yet have a meal elsewhere before dropping by the museum (bottled water is worth 85 pesos!).
This is my 4th post and I’m glad because I get to post more photos! Haha. I went there with my boyfriend, my mom and Elena(a volunteer at my mom’s office) who agreed to pose for me before flying back to Canada. So yep, I only had very few photos of myself when I went there but I’m far from complaining! And just in case, my previous post was all about what makes Pinto Gallery awesome. Aloha!
