To get to Sagada, we board the last Lizardo Trans bus at 1.00pm from the Dangwa Bus Station (near Baguio City Market) in Baguio. The bus is aircond and the seats are so-so. The journey takes 7 hours, fare is 220pesos. The bus passed by La Trinidad and made its way up to the winding and scenic Halsema Hwy. (Pls see my travelogue on Halsema Hwy on Sagada's travel page). You can sit on either side of the bus to view Halsema Hwy as the bus will make its wind around the mountain. The bus will make short stops at little villages on the way for you to use the washroom.
There are earlier buses bound for Sagada at the Dangwa Bus Station and there are other buses which are non aircond at the Slaughterhouse Road (which are bound for Bontoc and you need to take a Bontoc-Sagada bus) which is further up Dangwa Station. Unless you have got no choice on the timing of the bus, I suggest you board your bus from the Dangwa Station. D'Rising Sun buses also ply this route.

We boarded the Partas bus at Vigan's Partas Station at 1.45pm. Journey to Baguio takes about 5hours. We arrived at Baguio's bus terminal at 7.15pm - it was pretty dark then. Fare is 299pesos. The bus is A/C and quite comfortable.
When going to Partas station in Vigan, make sure you tell correctly to the driver which station you want to go as there are many bus stations in Vigan - all at different places.

Probably the best way to get to Baguio City is via the trusty Bus. Bus drivers can really drive up to the mountain city with their eyes closed despite the zigzags and all other obstacles. You can check out either Victory liner or Philippine Rabbit. We always take Victory liner from Pasay or Cubao. The Pasay Station is just below the 1st quarter stretch of the flyover along EDSA.
Fare is around 300 pesos per person for an aircondition bus. The travel time ranges anywhere from 5 to 7 hours depending on the traffic. We usually like leaving around 12 midnight so we'd just have enough time to sleep and be on our feet when we get to baguio. The bus stops at least twice during the trip to let the passengers go to the john. There are meals served at the stops so grab some.
When you get to baguio, take a cab and tell him where you're suppose to go. Or if you have not booked yet, ask him to bring you to the nearest inn.

In Baguio, you'll see a number of friendly mega taxi drivers who instantly become your tour guide. Try asking their opinion for places to go to and they'd gladly bring you there. Plus, if you are lucky enough, they might even have folk stories (whether legendary or spooky) about it. As you pass by some spots, ask your friendly driver to tell you about it and politely ask him where you are. TIP: get a map of baguio and check out the routes so you have an idea. Maps are available at the local bookstore. You'd find them in gasoline stations too.

You can go to any victory liner bus station and ride a bus going to Baguio. It takes about 6 hours to get to Baguio from Manila. Fare is 350-400.
There are so many cabs for going around Baguio. These are non-airconditioned since the place is blessed with a cool climate.

For Public transportation to Baguio, there are several bus stations. From Manila, you can take a Victory Liner Bus from Cubao (tel. no. 7274534, about P300). From Ilocos Sur, La Union you can take the aircon Partas Bus line (about P200) or any small busses plying the highway (about P60).
For those using private cars, you can take the Kennon Road from Rosario, Marcos Highway from Agoo
and Naguilian Road from Bauang . Just take care 'cause sometimes it's foggy specially during late afternoon. Sometimes, the highways have minimim visibilty so watch out for the curves.
For going around Baguio City, you can always take the ever reliable taxi cabs. The drivers of these cabs are friendly and they' always give back your exact change. You can also take the jeepney which is much cheaper.

The major roads around Baguio City is jammed with traffic during Baguio's peak seasons ( especially during the Flower Festival) so I advise you to either go to Baguio using public transpo or just avoid the major streets.

Except for the immediate downtown area, Baguio City is too big to stroll around. Jeepneys and taxis are available to take you to your hotel, or to provide transport in and around Baguio City. Taxi drivers will swarm you at the bus and air terminals, so it's not a surprise to learn that many also lend their services as tour guides. Locals on hotel-commissions will also descend upon you even before your feet hit the ground, so if you arrive without a hotel reservation, you can tempt fate or, if you're arriving at the airport, you can consult the people over at the tourism information counter.

An easy way to go to Baguio is to ask my friend and former flight instructor Capt. Mike Gomez to fly you with a small aircraft. Enquiries please to http://www.omniaviation.com.ph/about.html
