Hello, The Ruins.
I was so excited to take photos of the beautiful architecture. I even checked Instagram for inspiration.
We quickly paid for parking (PHP20) and entrance fee (PHP100/adult) and headed straight to the main attraction. However, I had no idea that the place gets packed on a Friday night.
I wasn't able to take a single frame without people or selfie sticks. And it made me frustrated that I ended up drinking two bottles of beer in no time. (Well, it was quite humid too that day as it drizzled half an hour before we got there.)
I settled with taking photos of the fountain and the interiors instead.
As much as I would like to join the group touring the place, the tour guide was speaking in local dialect so I was lost in translation.
But something magical happened. Everyone left around 7 p.m. and I had the whole place to myself!
|Thank you, timer!|
Some small groups came in 20 minutes later but I already got my shots by that time.
I guess it's best to go early on a weekday and if you're only free on weekends, come in late to avoid the crowd.
I'd definitely be back for some daytime shots!
