With summer fast approaching, it’s getting hotter in the metro. Thankfully, there is now a direct Manila to Sagada bus so escaping the heat is more convenient than ever.
Sagada tour packages are widely available, which makes going to this tourist destination cheaper in general. But there’s a hitch. You will likely share a van with 12 other people, most of them you don’t know. If you want to relax, going to Sagada by van isn’t the way to go.
If you’re going to DIY Sagada, it used to be that you need to ride a bus from Pasay or Cubao to Baguio then ride another bus from Baguio to Bontoc. Finally, from Bontoc to Sagada, you need to ride a jeepney, which would take about 1 1/2 hours.
All in all, the travel time is long and exhausting.
