Lucena Grand Central Terminal

If you’re going to Bicol from the Manila area or to other towns of Quezon province further from Lucena City, then the Lucena Grand Central Terminal should be a stopover in your itinerary. Located along the Diversion Road, the terminal is a huge building catering to commuters from all over southern Luzon. From here, you can go to the northern towns of Quezon like Lucban and Infanta or to the Bicol Peninsula. I think tricycles and/or jeepneys can also take you to the city proper of Lucena about 2 km to the south.

The terminal also contains several restaurants like Chowking, Jollibee, and Goldilocks. Aside from those, the Grand Riviera Hotel was put up nearby to cater to travelers who need a comfortable place to sleep.

When my family went to Bicol for a summer vacation years ago, we stopped at the Grand Central Terminal both on the way from and to Manila. If I remember correctly, I think I was the one who drove from the house to this terminal were we had our breakfast. That was definitely the farthest distance I’ve ever driven, about 110 kilometers worth!
