How to Get There?
From LRT Santolan Station, Pasig. Ride an FX or Jeep going to Antipolo Simbahan via Sumulong Hi-Way. That ride will take the Marcos Hi-way up to Masinag, from Masinag it will turn right to Sumulong Hi-Way. Assumption Road is in Brgy Dela Paz, Antipolo located along Sumulong Hiway and it’s a 10 to 15 minute drive from Masinag. After passing the Brgy Dela Paz Check Point, you’ll find a big white signboard that reads “Assumption of Antipolo.” Go down at Assumption. This is where Assumption School Antipolo is also located. DCPC Assumption Resthouse is just walking distance from Sumulong Hi-Way and in front of Hizon Laboratories Bldg. (You will not reach Assumption School)
From EDSA Ortigas of Shaw Blvd. Ride an FX or Jeep going to Antipolo Simbahan via Junction/Tikling. That ride will take Ortigas Extension to Antipolo Bayan Simbahan. Go down at the Petron Gas Station in Antipolo Bayan. There are Tricycle or Jeepneys there that can take you to Assumption Antipolo via Sumulong Hi-Way. From there it’s a 5 minute drive only.
Well, aside from Assumption School and its students? Hmmm….
Like I said it’s just a few minutes ride to Antipolo Simbahan (which I will feature in my future blog here) and nearer the Pasalubong Shops which is right along Sumulong Hi-way and in the outskirts of Antipolo Bayan.
It’s also a few minutes drive to the best night spots in Antipolo along Sumulong Hiway (which I will also feature in my future blogs here).
The food choices in Joseph’s Restaurant is great! I personally liked their Lechon-Tokwa and their Pancit Bihon.
I am a little biased since i’m directly connected with the place, so don’t take my word for it and experience it personally.
DCPC Assumption Resthouse in Antipolo changed their name to Joseph’s Resort Antipolo.
UPDATE: DCPC ASSUMPTION RESTHOUSE IN ANTIPOLO changed its name to JOSEPH’S RESORT
