Fondest memory: • It is a must for everyone to experience travelling in this place whether you are solo or in a group. I prefer a solo trip in this place…..because it gives you time to think…and all that….
• Don’t be afraid if you will try to go here solo…there are many people before you who did this…
• If you have more time…..than 4 days…then you must be very lucky…I love to go back again…maybe just sitting on the grassy open area near the church…maybe read a book….sip a cup of coffee….things like that…..
• If you will travel solo like I did….much better if you will schedule it on Friday-Sunday…there are many tourist at that time....i noticed that on Sunday they already started to go home. They usually take the first trip of the bus going to Baguio and then Manila,
• I spend Php 2,500 pesos on my four days stay in Sagada……..inluding dining, accommodation, pasalubong, tours and food even dining at the famous Log Cabin Restaurant,
• If you will travel solo be sure you will be friendly enough to other tourist so you can join their group……so you can minimize your travel expenses….use all the charm you have……it will save you some money and earn more friends in the process…
• If you will try to go to Sagada much better if you will include Banaue in your itenerary……..its just like hitting two birds in one stone…..like I did…..*

Favorite thing: I think sagada is one place where one can enjoy by just travelling alone, because at the end of the day you will find other solo travelers and you can form your own group for the different activities to save money and at the same time earn new friends.
It is a place where you can just sit on one of the open space beside the St. Mary Church while enjoying reading a book or just by sitting there. The accommodation are cheap but decent. And the people are friendly and accommodating. Its surely a place worth visiting.

Favorite thing: Sagada is a small community and buying a map is very handy for only P10 to P30 pesos. The attractions that need guide are the Bomod-ok falls and Caving so the rest you can go by yourself if you know how to read maps :). You can buy it on souvenir shops and some stores. I bought the green one at the Tourism office after the registration.

Favorite thing: These are just some of the things that you can see and do in Sagada. There are certainly more to experience. When you get there, always visit first the tourist information center. Inquire about their guide services and if there are any restrictions with the places you would want to visit. You can also buy a simple map here and ask guidance for accommodations.

Favorite thing: I always suggest for people to hire Andrew Bagne of Sagada Genuine guides. You may check for his cell number at their site. YOu may try 09105679882 if he hasn't changed it. Their rates would vary according to the places you would like to visit.
Yes, I do believe everyone is required to register at the municipal hall regardless of whether you are going to the sumaguing cave or not.
Fondest memory: waking up to the site of green grass and the smell of pine.

Favorite thing: You don't actually need a tour package to go around unless your budget is really tight. TravelFactor does have some really cheap ones. My apprehension though is that those cheap packages usually do not cater to how you would like to spend your vacation. So, I suggest you go on with your trip and try to make acquaintances at the bus. We did that and we did have a blast with our new-found friends. It was fun and cheap too because we go to share the expenses.
It might be better to take the tours with the guides on a per need basis. It's been raining in Sagada lately and there are so many places you can't go to when there's a downpour. We experienced that. So, my suggestion is to play it by ear.
Oh, don't go to the Bomod-ok falls without a guide unless you really are used to trekking. I wrote some of our experiences in Sagada lately. You may want to read them at my blog at http://pinas-et-al.blogspot.com. One other really good read about Sagada is that of Sagada-igorot.com.
I think we spent around 150 php per person per meal. But those were at the really nice restos already. If you are on a budget, there are so many other food options like you can stay at the Residential Lodge for 250 per person and get to cook your own food at the kitchen. They'll lend you everything you need - spoons, forks, plates, pots, pans, etc.
Well, have fun and stay safe.
Fondest memory: Everything - the food, the people, the climate, the trees, the caves, the mountains.

Favorite thing: Hi Asianbelle. We've finally decided to take the Manila-Banaue-Bontoc-Sagada route. It would have been nice to be able to stay a day or two in Banaue. We just couldn't afford to miss the rice terraces. We'll just be taking the Baguio-Manila route back so we can also roam around Baguio a bit before going back. We managed to contact a guide for Sagada, 1,200 per day for 2 persons although we've yet to confirm it.
I would just like to know if the food establishments in Sagada generally require that you make reservations? Thank you. :)

Favorite thing: Thank you so much guys. Finally was able to arrange a number of stuff. Medyo hinayang lang ako kasi gusto ko sana ung Manila-banaue route but kind of apprehensive about having to buy a return ticket on the day itself. Baka kasi maubusan nang morning trip sa Victory liner. Autobus and Florida leaves naman sa hapon or evenings pa. We'd need to leave Sat for that. :S I agree. Dapat may transpo na for 6 thou. Our current costing has run up to only 3,500 so far for two people.
We found an inn, Sagada guesthouse. It's cheaper than the rest that still have vacancies. Any comments or reviews on the place? Thanks!

Favorite thing: Thank you so much guys. It looks like the only feasible route for us would be the Manila-Baguio-Sagada route. After we reach Baguio, do we just wait for a bus from Lizardo or GL liner? Do they go straight to Sagada? Any reservations needed or do you just ride as they come by? Aprroximately how many hours from Manila to Baguio?
One thing that I am also worried about is that we might run out of tickets for a return trip to Manila? Is that likely to happen given that it's peak season? We plan to leave Sunday morning, around 8-9 am.
Other suggestions for an inn would also be welcome. I just contacted Canaway Inn and they're already full. I have a list of inns but not really sure which ones offer cheap rates. Thank you!

Favorite thing: Thank you Asianbelle for the phone numbers and the location. :)
Mrpmanuel, I would like to ask if it's more advisable to get bus tickets earlier. I'm not sure of the estimate of people going to Sagada this summer. Were there many tourists in Sagada the time you went there?
