Nueva Ecija Travel: Visiting Minalungao National Park, Tasting Batutay and More
Tuesday, February 07, 2017
Nueva Ecija is the last place for anyone to have any sense of trepidation about life. For decades, most tourists in Metro Manila had to beat the odds in far-flung areas of the Philippines just to experience the remote beauty of nature and the satisfaction of unique delicacies. When they had to experience the burden of intrepid travel in such trips, the opposite is entirely true of a visit of this province in Central Luzon. It’s a travesty that it’s usually overlooked for the more glossy island destinations that tend to cost more.

What not many people know is that, in one province, they can actually stay at a four-star hotel as a luxurious tour base of a natural attraction called Minalungao National Park and even linger in Cabanatuan City where the hotel is for memorable meals of local fare. And all it takes is just three days or less.

Where To Stay: Harvest Hotel
An easy option for a tour base of Nueva Ecija is Cabanatuan City and it’s where the four-star Harvest Hotel is. Offering more than luxury in terms of well-appointed rooms, the hotel is accessible from the city’s numerous landmarks, the staff members are hospitable, and it has a family-friendly swimming pool.
Before you overburden yourself with a crazy itinerary at some remote destination in the Philippines, isn’t it reasonable to try visiting a highly accessible province first like Nueva Ecija?
