What would be the fastest route from Manila to Baguio city via Subic bay?

by ewabrahdah

My family ,friends and I will be going to the Philippines this Nov.We will be traveling with a van to Baguio City from Manila.One of my friend is going to golf at Subic Bay with his relatives there so we need to drop him off there while we visit my relatives in Baguio City.What would be the fastest route from Manila to Subic then Baguio City?We will be leaving around 8pm. so we will traveling at night. Need help thanks vt. crew......

I think the fastest would be via NLEX/SCTex.

rom Manila, take the North Luzon Expressway then change to the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway after passing the Dau tollgate (it's the toll at the other end of the expressway). Taking the SCTex, you'll end up at Tipo which is already within SBMA/Subic Bay.

After dropping your friend, go back where you came from and take SCTex again. Just before it merges with NLEX, you'll find a sign that directs you to Tarlac. Drive until you reach the last toll then follow the sign to Baguio. Since you'll be driving at night I suggest you take the one to the left, via Rosales.

Great thanks for your help...By the way how long would this trip take?

Re: What would be the fastest route from Manila to Baguio city via Subic bay?

by asianbelle

Balintawak (start of NLEX) to Subic Bay is about 1.5 hours. Subic Bay upto Tarlac is around 1 hour. Tarlac to Baguio City (via Kennon Road) is approximately 3.5-4 hrs.

BTW, make sure that you gas up before you enter SCTex as, currently, there is no gas station and/or pit stop along its stretch. This highway (or NLEX for that matter too) is not lighted except for toll exit portions and is surrounded by mountains/ricefields/grassy areas. Can't recall if there are already emergency phone booths in place.

Travel Tips for Manila

Food Sanitation

by wreckloose

Remember to clean all fruits and vegetables thoroughly. "Night soil" is still utilized as a source of fertilizer so locally grown produce must be disinfected. I read somewhere to soak all fruits and vegetables, that couldn't be peeled or cooked, in clean, boiled water with a drop of bleach for fifteen minutes... and then in another bath of boiled water (without bleach) for another fifteen minutes. I did that and whether it actually worked or not, I never once got ill from the local produce. I've been told that there is also a product available in the grocery stores called "FIT", which is supposed to be a fruit and vegetable "cleansing dip".

The Manila post office

by kylian74

The post office of Manila is in 'Lawton' before you reach the Manily City Hall if you are coming from Quezon City ( the former capital of Philippines) This post office is the main and biggest in Philippines.

"ABOT" Reach out Jeepney fares of others

by yellowcab

When riding a jeepney in Manila or anywhere in the Philipines: It is customary and is expected of you by other jeepney passengers seating far away from the driver to reach out for their fare/payment. This is a Filipino term for "paki-abot" which is a simple act of kindness that can be seen among Filipinos in the streets.

When you hear the word "bayad po"(my fare please) and/or says "paki abot po"(please help); all you have to do is to extend your hand, accept & forward the payment/jeepney fare to the driver or to the next person who is much closer to the driver's seat.

Expect to see a disgusted face when you fail and ignore to assist this local custom.

Money

by keeweechic

Most banks that cash traveller's checks and exchange money are located in Makati. pm Monday-Friday. Some banks are also open until 1 PM Saturday.

Foreign currency may be exchanged at your hotel, and in most of the large department stores, banks and authorised money changing shops. Exchanging money anywhere else is illegal and the laws are strictly enforced.

Sensitive to Critisicms!

by machomikemd

We Filipinos too are known for being sensitive to insults, criticisms (constructive and destructive), racial discrimination, and other small issues cropping on occasion. Amor propio, or pride, connects the traits pakikisama, hiya (or shame), and utang na loob (or debt of honor). I think we inherited this from our latin heritage since latins are known to be hot blooded.

All of these affect his amor propio. If you have helped him in a way that cannot be repaid materially, he will constantly thank you for the favor done. The pride to return the good deeds he received nurtures his amor propio, which sometimes leads to showing off especially in the presence of peers and subordinates. His amor propio propels him to be overly of sensitive.
