    Bus from Bontoc to Banaue

    by myspices Updated Nov 9, 2006

    The bus journey from Bontoc to Banaue is about 2hours. When we arrived at Bontoc, we took the Von Von liner which was parked at the "station" along the main road, opposite side of the road where the jeepney from Sagada to Bontoc stopped. Do not know if any other bus companies ply the Bontoc-Banaue route. As we were not particular of the bus liner and we were in a hurry to get to Banaue, we just boarded the Von Von liner which was about to leave for Banaue. The seats were almost full and lots of luggages were already on board. We paid 100pesos each for fare. The bus was really old and the seats were real bad, so were the tyres!, but the driver and the attendants were friendly and helpful.

    Note: earliest bus to Banaue is at 6.00am and the last bus is at 2p.m. (Frequency is hourly)

    See more pictures on conditions of the bus..

    The Tricycle - within Banaue

    by myspices Updated Nov 5, 2006

    To move around Banaue, get on the tricycle. It is cheap and convenient. Lots of them everywhere - you can flag them down at any time.... Max passengers it can take (for medium sized) is 3 : two in the compartment and one as a pillion rider with the driver.

    Tricycle - good mode of transport

    Auto Bus

    by Dyesebel Written Nov 3, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is probably the only way to get to Banaue,well if you don't own/hire a car.
    The bus leaves at 10pm and arrive in Banaue around 6am.There are few stops, where you can use the toilet or buy some foods or drinks.Or I call it a "cigarette stop" for smokers;)
    But DON'T expect a good and clean toilet and a nice restaurant or we call it "carenderia".
    But the good thing is,there's no traffic.

    Tricycle

    Going to Banaue, you have to take Night bus from KMS line. You will arrive there by dawn. Then you can enjoy seeing the morning view in Banaue. To be frank, the highway wasnt like what I expected before. Unlike modern country highway despite, it's really adventurous site of traveling. I tried to sleep in a bus at that night but I wasnt sure is that a good decision since I were sitting in a very front seat, so I could see the road very clearly. The road is ok but a bit scary when the bus is speeding on the mountain range highway. Once in a while my heart jerk when the bus making turn or corner ring at the edge of the highway but what I can tell, it would be spectacular view to see the surrounding area of the Mountain Province.

    autobus to Banaue and Jeepneys to Sagada

    by malangi Updated May 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the autobus going to banaue leaves at 10pm. During peak season (april, may), a special trip leaves at 10.45pm to accomodate all passengers (P462.00/one way). the trip takes around 10hours. Upon arriving at the Autobus makeshift terminal at Banaue at 7am the following day, you can go directly to the jeepneys parked there. They're bound direct to Sagada for only P250.00. The jeepneys usually wait for the passengers arriving from the Autobus. Depending on the people going to Sagada, the jeepneys will depart 7:30-8am.The jeepney has stopovers in Banaue view point (est.8:00-9:00am), Mt. Polis view point (est.9:30-9:45am) and Bay-ao rice terraces view point (est.10:15-10:20). Banaue to Sagada takes 3 hours through rough roads but with fantastic views of cloud-capped mountains, bright blue sky, cliff-hanging terrain and gravel hills!

    Ticket reservation office in Ermita

    by emrahkb Updated Apr 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hello everyone. To reach this beautiful place directly from Manila by one bus, Autobus company is the only chance for you which buses departs from Espana Boulevard. The point is even the company itself declares that tickets can be purchased or reserved only from the office in this terminal. However there is a travel agent, Filipino travel which can sell or book tickets of Autobus in Ermita. Close to the Robinson Centre and in the corner of Adriatico and the Pedro Gil streets (Romana Apt.Building,1555 M.Adriatico Street Ermita) where is close to the tourist belt Ermita and Malate. You can just walk. But they add a 12% service charge addition to the tickets. Its good just if you dont want to deal with going to the terminal one or two day before the trip to book or buy the tickets.

    Thanks for this useful information to the so kind staff (A very informative lady but dont know her name) of Pension Natividad in Malate.

    Have fun the terraces and the friendly people and beautiful kids around there...

    by chuksingh Written Jan 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took the jeepney from Banaue to Bontok in an aim for reaching Sagada. It took 2 hours to get to Bontok, then another hour for Sagada. The original price for the ride was 150 pesos but after waiting for an hour inside the jeepney, the waiting passengers (incl myself and my gf) agreed to pay 200 pesos each so we could leave...basically u can wait for hours till it is full.... my gf got sick from the drive up,left,right,down,left,right....we met some nice ppl from that trip whom we hung out with upon reaching Bontok and Sagada.

    Jeepneys Built for Mountain Roads

    by bike_packer Updated Dec 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The road to Bangaan Rice Terraces, our day tour destination in Banaue is about 12km away from our hotel. It is but normal to meet jeepney drivers at the hotel lobbies offering a day rent of their passenger jeepneys. The jeepneys are set-up and designed for the mountainous bumpy rugged road curved in the very steep side of the mountain. And considering the special skills of these local drivers, it is but wise to hire them than using your own city-bred car/van.

    It is advisable to contact one a day prior. This could be at your advantage when haggling for the package price.

    Hold on! The road is bumpy.

    Stretch 1, 2, 3, 4 . . .

    by asianbelle Updated Nov 30, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An airconditioned Autobus leaves Manila at 10pm daily and arrives in Banaue at 7am the next day. The same bus leaves Banaue daily at 5:30pm and arrives in Manila around 2:30am the next day.

    There are normally 2 brief stop overs, "brief" as in 20 minutes - for the bus to re-fuel or for the passengers to eat and/or visit the bathroom. Take advantage of these stops to stretch, the bus seat is not very comfortable.

    The big jeepney

    by asianbelle Updated Jul 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jeepney in Banaue is bigger and sturdier than those found in Manila. Maybe, because of the road conditions and the people and products they transport.

    No definite schedule of departure/arrival, when the jeepney becomes full, then off it goes. It is better to form a group and "contract" a jeepney for sightseeing.
