Getting there Banaue
Autobus and Florida Bus Liner have night buses between Manila and Banaue during peak season (Holy week and Christmas) supply of seats may exceed demand so make sure to book ahead during these times. The journey takes 9 hours with regular stops along the way. Both bus companies are located a few blocks away from each other, details are listed below:
S.H. Loyola St. Sampaloc, Manila
Departure time: 10pm - arrival time: 7 AM.
Fare: 462 php
Florida Bus Line
1415 S.H. loyola St. Sampaloc, Manila
Departure time 1045pm - arrival time: 7:45am
Fare: 450 php
The buses are returning to Manila around 9 pm and arrive back in Manila in the late afternoon. There is no direct bus connection linking Manila with Banue during daytime. It is possible to take a bus to Solano and from there take a jeepney to Lagawe and from there take another jeepney to Banaue. The whole trip will take about 10 hours, so plan on leaving early (5am) from Manila to arrive before dark in Banaue and to avoid traffic jams around Manila. Victory and Florida both have regular buses bound for Tuguegarao, Cagayan that will travel via Solano.
Currently only two non-ac Dangwa Tranco buses ply the route between Baguio and Banaue. It is an uncomfortable 8 hours journey, with two early morning departures.
From Sagada you will have to take a jeepney in the morning to Bontoc and from there to Banaue. Whole trip takes about 4 hours.
