So many restaurants to choose from but i love the Lemon tea of Sagada Lemon Pie House and the Yogurt of Yogurt House -- Indeed one of the Best!
HOW TO GO
I tried to check if there's a direct bus ride from Manila to Sagada but I can't seem to find anything on the web. You need to take Manila to Baguio then to Sagada. Manila to Baguio travel time will be around six hours and fare was about 450php.Best time to leave is in the evening if your from Manila. There are so many buses that take this route but we choose Victory Liner in Cubao Terminal.
From Victory Terminal in Baguio City take a cab going to GL Liner in Baguio Dangwa first trip is at 6am until 1pm travel time will be another 6 hours on a non air conditioned bus but don't you worry most of the roads are smooth. Fare was about 250php. Be there early so you can choose a better seat. Get a window seat to enjoy the view of the Halsema Highway.
Victory Liner contact number: (063) 410 8986
WHEN TO GO
Best time to go is during dry months December to May. Since it will be very difficult and risky if its raining.
Special thanks to Mara and Beverly my travel buddies for this trip. Thanks girls for some of the pictures I've used on this post.
