From Buntatala, Jaro (after Tagbac Terminal), private vehicle drivers can actually reach the part of the Western Nautical highway toward the town of Pototan without passing by the town centers of Leganes and Zarraga via the Iloilo Radial By-Pass Road 4.
The vast rice plantation covering the surrounding areas beside the highway and the smooth and hassle-free (well, at least during daytime) road will shorten your travel time when headed north.
Farmers busily working on the ricefields here pause for a moment while they observe us while as we took photos of them. Iloilo is one of the top rice-producing provinces in the country.
This area is indeed worth passing by when you’re in for a scenic, short and scenic ride.
I hope to pass by here one day as the sun starts to set down for a more superb view.
BUT I would never pass by here during night time. Even though lamp posts are being installed.
