  • it's more fun and cheaper to use your feet

    I've come to love Baguio so much that I'm already staying here for three years now, away from the noise and pollution of bustling city streets of Manila. In my observation, it's quite easy to get around the city by foot. Don't rely too much on public transportation, the city streets are quite small, and just by strolling around Session Road and its nearby streets, you'll be able to discover quaint little surprises that most travel guides won't tell you. For one, there's a little gift shop called "Bon Chic" along Session Road that sells accessories far cheaper than most souvenir shops and markets here. Plus, there are a number of charming coffee shops and gourmet restaurants that you'll surely miss if you're not strolling around. Just always be wary of pickpockets along Maharlika (especially when you're crossing the overpass), and wear your jacket and bring an umbrella with you, it usually rains in the afternoon.

    Bus or pLane

    by ahnntootz Written Nov 13, 2007

    ~~ commuters can take bus from the metro, i mean metro manila, its about a 6hours travel

    ~~ if you are too luxurious then u can take plane, its about 45mins travel

    ~~ but if ur goin to ask my preference, i go for a long travel. youll got a chance to meet a lot people, got a chance to see more place since theres about 5drop offs for rest room or break

    ~~ on this picture, its taken in one of our stop over, or i shall say the last stop over before hitting baguio city

    Getting around Bagui is easy. You guys can try Jeepney. A colorful Jeepney. cost only for about 10p. It's very convenience to get to another places. Basically you can wait at the bus station but you can hail them while you walking. Usually they will stop but sometimes not.

    Victory Liner to Baguio

    by KookieDough Written Aug 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Apart from riding in a private car, the next option for me and I believe for most people who are going from Manila to Baguio is hopping on to a Victory Liner bus.

    They have trips to Baguio at least every hour, round the clock. Their terminals are also very accessible - the two main ones are along EDSA, which is this main thoroughfare that stretches across all the major areas of Metro Manila.

    One-way fare is around 7 to 8 USD.

    A bit of a warning - their drivers maneuver the buses like maniacs and as if they own the roads. However, these drivers really know the route and can probably get you to Baguio City with their eyes closed.

    Victorious Victory Liner

    by malangi Updated Jun 2, 2006

    Manila to Baguio or Baguio to manila via Victory Liner is P382.00 (May 2006)...their new station is very big, with clean restrooms and several waiting chairs...there are several pasalubong stores at the second floor near the ticketing station...if you did not reserve any tickets...best to wait in line in the chance passenger area...its quicker to get a ride instead of buying a ticket...we arrived by 8pm at the station (may 21), they are already selling tickets for 11pm..so we waited in the chance passenger line...we were able to ride the 8.40pm bound for Manila...but we were already seated at the back of the bus

    victory liner bus to baguio

    The six hour trip to Baguio costs around P300 via the Victory Line Bus. The reason why I like this particular bus company is that they have every-hour trips to Baguio and the buses are relatively new. They have ample stopovers (one in Pangasinan and one in La Union).
    They have terminals in Cubao, Pasay, etc.

    Jeep to Mines View Park, The Mansion, Wright Park

    by yellowbell Written Jul 25, 2005

    From Session Road (away from the direction of the Cathedral), go downhill to Mabini St. (McDonald is in the corner) and take a jeep with the signboard "Mines View". P8.50 one way.

    Get off at Mines View Park. Take the same jeep going back to Baguio Plaza but stop along the way at The Mansion or Wright Park.

    Buses to Baguio abound and has scheduled trips by the hour...
    The buses are very clean and well-maintained... spacious... its a great 6-hour ride experience...The bus to and from Baguio stops at points where passengers can have bathroom breaks and for meals...
    If you want to chew on native candies and goodies... they will come to you in droves through the vendors that hop into the buses...
    Overall... its a no hunger and no boredom way to go to Baguio...

    Jeepneys!

    by bermanv Written Jan 13, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jeepney is an all-Philippine cheap, ubiquitous, high pollution, funky means of transportation. Basically, it's a crossbreed of a bus and a jeep without a backdoor (or with a constantly open one) covered with funky graffiti, chrome and decorations.

    Don't forget to give the ship a name - "Arlan", "Black Stallion" (that's my favorite), "Thunderbird", "Shalom", "Libra" or whatever Filipino imagination comes up with.

    Baguio jeepneys are (relatively) safe and cost only P5.50/person.

    colorful cabs and artistic jeepneys

    by mijyay Written Feb 16, 2004

    Travelers need not worry about getting around Baguio. Once you arrive, there are taxis of various shapes and colors . There's brown, white and sometimes green (come to think of it, the yellow taxi has disappeared a couple of years back). They're easy to spot though since they have the word "taxi" emblazoned on the body of the car. Flagdown rate is P 20 (pesos) and P1 (peso) every kilometer (if the meter goes faster than that report it to the nearest police station).

    If you prefer a cheaper way of going around town, riding in a jeepney is your next option. Fare is P4.25 for the first 4 kilometers. It's a fun way of going around town as long as you don't mind the stares. Oh, and don't forget to ask if it's going to the "Plaza". If the driver or the passenger answers in the affirmative, get in.

    If you prefer the cheapest way, you can always walk. Baguio is a small town and you can go anywhere just by walking.

    riding motorcycle around Baguio City...

    by mlt_t Written Aug 2, 2003

    You can see in this picture is my husband and beside him his motorcycle and his friends motorcycle. They ride their bikes from Bataan to Sagada and then Baguio City for only 3 days only. Even though the road is rough, unpaved sections and their all tired they have to be in Sagada Mountain before the nightfall. Mission Accomplished! That’s what they said to themselves
