    Bus versus van-for-hire

    by paolodecastro Updated Apr 18, 2013

    You have to weight things is much faster if you will ride a bus rather than waiting for so long if you will ride the bus going from banaue t0 Bontoc....... if it is not the peak season. Peak season is between March-May. If you will do this you can save a lot of time.

    Sweet Oranges

    by edwinic Written Jan 11, 2010
    Orange blossoms and fruit

    Im not sure if its a tourist trap.

    In Dec 2008, we stayed at Rock Inn - a very beautiful place by itself. One of their feature is that the adjacent orange orchard where you can buy at P15/kilo. You can even pick yourself or ask the utility boys to help you.

    They have a sample so that you can gauge how sweet the oranges are.

    The bunch that we had around 3 kgs are all bland and almost juiiceless.

    I want top return but I realised at 15pesos, its a great souvenit.

    Unique Suggestions: count the picking and (for myself) seeing beautiful orange trees for the first time

    Fun Alternatives: its fun, probably i was just unlucky with the time of the year.

    i must warn you that those who are coming from Banaue who happened to hire a PUJ from there. i have observed that the driver seem to be the ones doing the guiding in some spots of Sagada like Kiltepan, Burial Cave, HAnging coffins, Bokong FAlls etc.. Pls do not patronize them.

    The Banaue drivers often give wrong information on our way of life and give misleading stories about the SAGADIANS. they don't have the clearance of Guiding you around in SAGADA and if something happens to the tourists. The Sagadians will be the ones responsible..

    The worst thing is they do not Register the tourists in Sagada. They take things into their hands..

    pls don't be deceived by people who are taking advantage on you.

    Unique Suggestions: Always ask where the Tourist Information is..

    Entering the Cave not in proper suit

    by gareth13 Written Jan 30, 2007

    Entering the Cave not in proper suit cause much tourists not to go to the cave or complain that their guide did not tell em in the first place... so to avoid that..

    You should secure youself a shortpant, glove(if u dont want to hold those bat ***s) flashlights for emergency, and rubber slippers....

    Trekking in Sagada, i suggest u secure a Jacket, for the weather in this place is really cold/

    Use your legs and feet--- WALK!

    by Erebos Written Dec 16, 2006

    Not really a tourist trap but for you to save hundreds of bucks, I suggest you just walk your way to your destination/s. At the tourist information center, jeepneys and tricycles align... You can rent them to take you to your destination (you can choose one-way or round-trip) for a specific amount. Either you walk or just take the public transportation (pretty much like the for-rent type, but expect the jeeps to be packed). Oh, you may also request to be "seated" (okay, more of squat) on top of the jeepney (roof).
