From our overnight stay in Pandan Island, we decided to spend the last day of our "3-day escape" in this town. A 3-hour bus ride from Sablayan brought us in this quiet town. Tough it is the capital of the province, there's nothing much to see here.
Here are some of the interesting places we visited:
There are only two ATM machines in
UPDATE (03/15/2011) - this is to correct my post above saying that there are only two ATM machines in the whole province. The error was brought up by a comment of an anonymous user.
There are other banks located in San Jose
According to Wikipedia: San Jose is the center of entertainment and business in the province. Major banks such as Philippine National Bank (PNB), United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB), Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), Allied Bank, Metrobank, Landbank, Philippine Veterans Bank, have local branches and even fast food chain Jollibee has started operations in San Jose.
