I may not be that religious in the eyes of others, but believe it or not, I have this passion for Catholic churches/theme parks. Last January 2018, I had the chance to visit Marian Orchard, in Balete Batangas. It is a 5 hectare pilgrimage site that is surrounded by several kinds of trees and flowers, and different Catholic-themed sculptures.
✨ This theme park is located in Barangay Malabanan, Balete Batangas
🚘 I traveled via private car and took skyway /SLEX and STAR tollways. I spent more or less P600.00 for the toll fee. If you will be commuting, you may take a bus going to Lipa or Batangas City. Drop off point is Levitown in Marawoy. From there, you can ride a jeepney that passes by Marian Orchard
✔️ Parking Space – outside the theme park
✨ Entrance Fee: P50.00 per person – As stated in the ticket, the entrance fee serves as a donation that goes to the upkeep and development of the pilgrimage site.
✨ They are open daily, from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM.
✨ Mass schedule is every first Friday of the month, Saturday, and Sunday, 4:00 pm
✔️ They have souvenir shop that offers several items such as key chains, mugs, t-shirts, and accessories
✔️ They also have cafeteria that sells snacks and drinks
