How to get from Banaue to Manila

Banaue is famed for its UNESCO listed rice terraces and gets plenty of foreign and domestic visitors. Despite this popularity, the only way one can get in and out of there is by bus. The distance between Banaue and Manila is estimated to be around 470 kilometres via the Pan-Philippine Hwy/AH26. Expect to spend on the move about 10–12 hours as the road is serpentine in part.

Buses from Banaue to Manila

As per se there is no bus station in Banaue. Most buses bound for Manila are stationed near the tourist information office located right in the town centre.

Ohayami Trans is a popular option and their bus leaves Banaue at 7pm and arrives to Manila early the next morning between 4.30am and 5.30am. On peak days, they have an additional bus scheduled for 6.30pm. Bus fare as of this writing is PHP700. You can catch the same bus for Manila at Lagawe, too: it departs at 7.45 pm. The bus ticket cost PHP650.

Similarly, Coda Lines tourist buses ply the Banaue to Manila route regularly. They offer one of the most convenient and comfortable options as their buses do not have aisle seats to accommodate more passengers. They have air-conditioned and more expensive deluxe buses that cost between PHP650 to PHP750 and operate 4 departures a day.

In addition to the two bus companies listed above, there are other bus companies that you can ride on your way to Manila from Banaue, including GV Florida Transport and An Autobus. GV Florida Transport or Dangwa Transport Co. have deluxe buses that leave for Manila at 6pm and 8pm. Their terminal is situated right across Hall of Justice in Banaue. The bus fare should be around PHP650. There's also An Autobus that sets off for Manila at 5.30pm. Schedules and prices should be confirmed at the tourist information centre in Banaue.

Though there is a choice of daily bus departures from Banaue, we highly recommend booking your ticket in advance.

Bus types, onboard service and road conditions between Banaue and Manila

Both Ohayami Trans and Coda Lines have quite an impressive safety record and judging on our own experience their drivers are usually very careful. There are usually two drivers per bus.

Deluxe buses are equipped with toilets onboard, otherwise, buses usually make 2 to 3 stops to allow passengers to use the toilet or grab a meal. Most buses have TV and video facilities as well as WiFi. The connection can be a hit or miss though so we recommend getting things you need to do online done while you have phone signal before you board the bus.

Passenger reviews out of total 794 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Problems with my booking, were only resolved after the Banaue office opened Comfortable ride with the bus. Unfortunately arrival only at midnight. Booking from Europe not practical. No email contact possibile. PayPal needed, creditcard for Europeans more adequate

Be warned that the evening departure time from Banaue for Coda Lines is only at 5pm, 5:30pm & 6pm. Aside from 12go.com's error in advertised departure time, the bus itself was very comfortable (leather seats), had a couple of movies, was clean, not too cold with the AC (but still bring a blanket) and the driver can drop you off anywhere in Manila along its route. There are two rest stops too, it was a comfortable and pleasant 9hr ride!

The only minus point here is the delay of the bus to arrive in Banaue. Every other things are ok.

We were running late and was clearly not in the terminal 30 minutes before. But we were surprised to find that the bus had left the terminal before the said time.

Easy to pay, no problems when trying to get in the bus. On the way back, they provided blankets. :) But, it is kind of hard to have a good night sleep considering that the road is in zig zag so the drive is not smooth.

It get you there however, they do stop throughout journey to pick up locals which can get confusing. The free wifi is good although doesn't always work. The seats aren't particularly comfortable and it can get quite cold on the coach. You get what you pay for I guess...

Comparing to Coda Lines is really bad... for the same price the trip is by far really worse. Sits cannot move, stops so many times, really full, drivers don’t tell you anything about minutes of stops or something....
