Today is a second day of my Rizal Travel, together with my teammates we decided to hire a tricycle for the entire 2nd day of Roving. The Whole Trip is from Morong Rizal up to JalaJala, Rizal. Next Municipality after Baras is Tanay. Actually, Tanay is not new to me since I used to work in one of a Banks located in Tanay Town proper for almost three months right after Graduation. However, Working for three months in Tanay doesn’t bring me enough knowledge about the hidden exquisiteness and awareness of Tanay’s Beauty. Therefore, this Travel is almost new, as new as I haven’t yet work in Tanay. So, the ecstasy of the total excitement is still there.
Tanay, Rizal is located 57 kilometres (35 mi) east of Manila. A normal commuter’s travel time from Manila to Tanay will take between one to three hours depending upon traffic conditions. If you came from the Metropolis, I advised you to go ahead at Shaw Blvd infront of Star Mall Edsa. The Terminal of FX and Jeppneys are located there, PHP 75.00 for the Air-conditioned FX and 65PHP for Jeepney.
Just a heads up, Tanay contains portions of the Sierra Madre Mountains and is bordered by Antipolo City in the northwest, Baras, Morong and Teresa in the west, General Nakar (Quezon Province) in the east, and Pililla, Santa Maria (Laguna province) as well as the lake Laguna de Bay in the south.
Tanay is subdivided into 18 Barangays
• Kay-Buto (Pob.)
• Mag-Apon (Pob.)
• Pinagkamaligan (Pob.)
• Plaza-Aldea (Pob.)
• Regina Rica
• San Andreas
• San Isidro (Pob.)
• Santa Inez
• Santo Nino
• Tabing-Ilog (Pob.)
• Tandang-Kutyo (Pob.)
• Wawa (Pob.)
|Meanwhile, the mission of the Municipal Government of Tanay is to improve the socio-economic condition of its population through sustainable development and responsive management of its resources in active partnership with all concerned sectors. Well, the development that they mentioned really reflects on the noble Municipal hall that they build. When I personally saw the newly built/renovated Municipal hall, all I can say is, it looks like the Washington White House. It was visually great due to the white and newly painted architecture. Though it is a smaller version of the White House but still I will stand my opinion that it is the white house of the Philippines. It was really a huge transition compared when I was working in Tanay.
Aside from falls, caves, resorts, and more tourist spots in Tanay, I believe that their municipal hall can be also considered as part of Hikers and Traveller’s itinerary who wants to visit the place. The landscaping in front of the hall is much picturesque, the ornamental plants are very pleasant and the plaza is huge perfect for jogging with your dog.
