    Victory..

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the ticket sells P285 (one way) plus P5 for insurance chervagh that makes it P290. In all Victory liner terminals there's always Baguio trip.

    we had 3 stop overs (but I barely remember them coz we were snoring at that time lol!).

    I find it ideal to go midnight trip you'll get there before sunrise.

    oh BtW, their baGuio terminal is shalagh ha..!

    From Manila to Baguio Airlines

    by jumpingnorman Updated Apr 30, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Asian Spirit is now Zest Air (accdg to Vter Asianbelle) and they offer flights to Baguio City (as well as Philippine Airlines - Express) and SEAir (www.flyseair.com).

    I think my wife and I rode on the Asian Spirit before and it was a nice short 50 minute flight during the morning (plane left the domestic airport in Manila at 9:00 am and arrived at the Loakan Airport at 9:50 am). Accdg to website, Baguio flights are scheduled only in the morning as visibility approaches zero in the afternoon when the fog starts to move in and cover most of the area surrounding the airport.

    Loakan Airport in Baguio is about 20 minutes by car south of the city and just close to Fort Del Pilar where the Philippine Military Academy is located.

    I also got the following info from this website (nice things to know)
    http://www.farecompare.com/flights/Manila-MNL/Baguio-BAG/market.html

    Asian Spirit (now Zest Air) has the most flights (7) between Manila, PH and Baguio, PH.
    The smallest aircraft flying between Manila, PH and Baguio, PH is a DH7 operating by Asian Spirit/Zest Air with 50 seats.

    7 flights per week fly between Manila, PH and Baguio, PH

    The largest aircraft flying between Manila, PH and Baguio, PH is a YS1 operating by Asian Spirit/Zest Air with 60 seats.

    Marcos or Kennon? Take your pick.

    by semper.max Updated Nov 12, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're coming from Manila, Kennon Road via Rosario, La Union is the shortest distance to Baguio. It is also the most scenic and the climb is a short one. It is however the most prone to landslides and downhill would most likely burn your brakes if you do not employ engine braking.

    Marcos Highway via Manaoag - San Jacinto - San Fabian - Agoo offers another alternative which will allow you to visit Manaoag Church, Agoo Church and the Museo Iloko in Agoo. At Marcos Highway, you will also be passing Pugad Camp which offers so many adventure activities. Should you wish to go to a beach prior to going to Baguio, plenty of beach resorts can be found in San Fabian.

    Fastrack to Baguio

    by iclee Written Feb 5, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Manila - Baguio by bus using Victory Liner. They are easily accessible thru several terminals in Metro Manila. Caloocan, Cubao, Kamias, Pasay, and Sampaloc all have VLiner terminals. I find the Pasay one most accessible since it is along EDSA and right beside the MRT.

    Their website accepts credit card payments. Buy ahead if you are travelling during holidays but other days, it is quite easy to just queue and purchase. You can also find their schedule per terminal and destination on their website. Fairly cheap at PHP460 OW.

    victory liner bus to baguio

    by zephyrgurl108 Written Sep 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Leave Your Car In The Hotel

    by cyndymc Updated Mar 7, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Traffic in Baguio is terrible, especially at downtown area and the tourist destinations. If you are going to a nearby area, leave your car at the hotel. You can either walk to exercise or take the jeepney. For farther places that are known to have heavy traffic, take the FX/taxi. It will save you the time and hassle of driving through the choke points and finding a parking space.

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

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    This bus company has some of the most comfortable buses that ply the Manila-Baguio-Manila route. Their timetable is frequent enough that you don't have to wait too long in their station. They have five (5) stations scattered all over Metro Manila. Click on the website below and check the location of the station nearest you. ;D

    Use your Car Going Up To Baguio

    by cyndymc Updated Jan 29, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many air-conditioned buses plying the Manila-Baguio route. However, your private car is still your best alternative. You can have full control of your time for stopovers at restrooms or snack bars/coffeeshops/restaurants along the way. You will feel more secure about your baggage,too.

    Be sure to check on updates re: routes to Baguio City before you travel.

    The cheapest and convenient way to travel to baguio is through a bus. The victory liner bus in cubao has an hourly schedule of buses that leaves for baguio. And recently, they have a luxury bus that is non-stop, made possible by a lavatory built inside it. The seats are spacious and very comfortable. It is not that expensive an added P200-300 pesos from the regular fee. Although, tickets have to be purchased days before because of the high demand.

    Commendable Cabbies

    by nimato Written Dec 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Baguio's cab drivers are probably the most trusted breed in the entire Philippines. Well, that's as far as my experience is concerned. They won't rip you off. They would even insist for your change [they're always ready with smaller bills and coins]. So, when in Baguio, trust the cabbies. In around the city, it's only P35. If you're a group of 7 in a van, that would be P5 per person only!

    My wish for Manila cabbies: I wish they're just like their Baguio counterparts.

    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.

    There are regular trips to Baguio City at their Pasay terminal every 30 minutes until 2 AM. Fare is P445.00. It is located along EDSA just right after the Flyover going to the airport before the Caltex Gasoline station.

    You can also book for their deluxe buses for P600.00 and P700.00 with Toilet. They only have 2 trips for this one.

    The Baguio Terminal going back to Manila is located at Utility Road Cor. Old Forestry Road near Microtel. The fare is also P445.00.
