Good to know
Reaching Banaue can take a staggering 9 hours, but we’ve never met a person who said it wasn't worth it. It’s known to the UNESCO World Heritage for the Ifugao rice terraces of Northern Luzon. Tourists will enjoy the breaktaking scenery, whether it's on an venturesome trek or simply, the morning view from your lodgings. Either way, you will not be disappointed. Another wonder that will blow you away are the Tappiya Falls, which will take you about an hour to reach it on foot. The trek is worth what you will discover. Overall, Banaue is a small town that’s full of charm. After you’ve got the trekking out of your system, enjoy local features like the market. Or, take a ride on a tricycle through the streets of Banaue. Getting to and from Banaue is long, but uncomplicated, if you grab a super deluxe bus to Manila that runs daily.

36 seat night bus to Banaue
Departs from the outskirts of Manila, but taxi's appear to know the bus station. Bus left at 9.00 pm on time. Seats relatively comfortable, but could do with foot rests. Slept almost all the way, though the intensely windy road at the end of the journey did throw one about a bit. Don't forget you are going up into the cold mountains, so need warm clothes in the bus. Temperatures drop dramatically. What a marvel that driver was. Excellent value for money.

It was a good trip. 👍 thumbs up to the driver and crew
Alright booking service
Our booking was not transferred to the Bus lines and we had to wait extra hours for the next bus but bookaway did send the tickets promptly and got us on a new bus
Easy-Peasy trip to Sagada
Booked our 2-way trip from Manila (Cubao) to Sagada with Coda Lines - the only bus line with direct trip to Sagada. Last minute we had encountered a problem due to Taal eruption that I had to change the name of my companion. Bookaway Chat Support was very helpful and convenient to use. After a couple of minutes, I've received my updated voucher. Kudos!
Trip cancellation
Hi, we had to cancel our trip to the Philippines and also, therefore, our bus transportation. Cordially.
I know bus in Php are cold But this one was so freaking crazy cold!! I really don't get it... Driver was driving fast / break / fast / break in the mountain
Online Booking
The online booking wasn’t good and not updated. Booked online but they changed the bus then the schedule several times. Was so frustrated but no choice. You have to pay the toilet in the terminal.
