The Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) is one of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's favourite projects. The 919 Kilometer SRNH was opened to the public on April 12, 2003.
Since then it has seen many enhancements and extensions. Today the SRNH is composed of 3 major parts: The western, the central and the eastern routes.
1280 kilometers in 2 days
A very special travel adventure in the Philippines is the western route of the SRNH from Quezon City to Zamboanga in southern Mindanao. You can do the 1280 km in less than 48 hours and without leaving your seat.
The coach leaves Cubao in Quezon City at 09:00 AM and reaches Batangas at 12:00 noon. Here starts the first ferry trip to Mindoro.
Your bus arrives at 03:30 PM in Calapan on Mindoro Island. The following land trip shows you the beauty of Mindoro and brings you to Roxas on Mindoro Oriental. You arrive in Roxas at 08:30 PM
The next ferry section ships during the night to Caticlan, Aklan in the north of Panay where you arrive at 01:00 AM.
The north - south trip on Panay Island passes at 03:00 AM by Kalibo and arrives around 07:00 AM in Iloilo on the southern tip of Panay Island.
From Iloilo you ship to Bacolod on Negros Oriental where you arrive at 10:00 AM. This is just a bit more than 24 hours for the first 652km.
Your coach now crosses over Negros Island from Bacolod to Dumaguete. You arrive in Dumaguete around 04:00 PM.
You leave Dumaguete by the last ferry of your trip and arrive at 09:00 PM in Dapitan on Mindanao Island. A short 30 minutes trip brings you to Dipolog, where the bus arrives at 09:30 PM.
The last section overland from Dipolog to Zamboanga is the longest one and reaches your destination after 8h30 at 05:00 AM.
Welcome in Zamboanga!
