Hmmm do you want to visit Banawe Rice Terraces already? Are you coming from Manila or else where? For me, I am coming from Pasay Metro Manila so here’s how:

Day 1: Take Victory Liner From either Cubao or Pasay bound for Baguio City. It normally takes at least 6 to 7 hours including or depending on the traffic along the way. I prefer going travelling at night so I always take the 1 or 2 AM bus. More information about BAGUIO CITY

DAY 2: Going to Banaue from Baguio could have a lot of option. Option 1 is via Halsema Highway. Take the Lizardo Bus that will take you to Bontoc then from Bontoc there would be Jeepneys there that you can ride going to Banaue. The bus fare would be more or less Php 400.00 per pax then another at least Php 300 to Php 400 per pax.

MUST DO:

  • The jeepney ride is totally thrilling. I must advise go on TOP LOAD or at the top of the jeepney. There’d be a lot to see when going there. I must advise though that you take extra care. Don’t miss the fun and excitement plus a thrilling adventure. Take the TOP LOAD.
