From Outside The Philippines
The Philippines has a considerable number of airports that host international carriers. The largest airport is in Manila. Manila is the national center of commerce and transportation to various parts of the country could be availed of in the city.
Sagada, Mountain Province is 400 kilometers north of the hustle and bustle of the Philippine capital of Manila. There are no airports in Sagada. To get there, one can take a bus from Manila to any of three major hubs close to Sagada.
Via Baguio City
Numerous bus companies offer round-the-clock shuttle service to Baguio. Victory Liner is easily the most dependable among the bus companies offering such service. Victory terminals are scattered all over Metro Manila but the biggest ones are in Pasay and Cubao. Both stations have a bus leaving for Baguio every hour so it will be easy getting a seat even without a reservation. The trip can take as little as six (6) hours, but with traffic jams and volume factored in, the journey can get significantly longer. It is recommended to travel at late night to avoid this inconvenience. The fare is 390 Php.
The City of Baguio in Benguet is the most accessible as it is one of the more popular tourist destinations in the country. It also boasts a strong foreign-born community that talks volumes about the city’s welcoming environment towards tourists. From Baguio, one has to go to the Dangwa Station to take the Lizardo Bus to the town of Sagada. The first bus leaves the station at 6 AM and one bus leaves every hour until the last scheduled trip at 1 PM. In terms of actual distance, the trip to Sagada is significantly shorter, but due to the fact that the bus traverses the meandering roads by the mountains, the trip takes almost as long – a little over 6 hours. The fare is 220 Php.
