How to get from Manila to Baguio

A favourite destination with both domestic and foreign tourists, Baguio is a city in the Benguet, a province of the Cordillera Administrative Region. It is easily reached from Manila overland. In early 2019 Cebu Pacific launches their direct flights between Manila and Loakan airport operated by CebGo thus establishing an air link between the two.

How far is Baguio from Manila?

Located approximately 260 kilometres from Manila, Baguio sits north of the capital. It can be reached overland via R-8 and N Luzon W Expy/R-8.

How long does it take to get to Baguio from Manila?

If travelling overland, by bus or van, Baguio can be reached in about 5–8 hours.

The travel time depends largely on the type of the bus and the time of the day you travel – whether you take a day trip or a night one. In general, travelling by night can save you about 2 hours as traffic is less heavy compared to the daytime.

Flying will bring you to Baguio in about 45 minutes.

How to get from Manila to Baguio by bus

Currently, there is half a dozen bus companies that regularly ply the route between Manila and Baguio thus you have a good choice of departures throughout the day.

What company to choose for Manila-Baguio travel?

One of the most reliable operators is Genesis. Genesis buses depart from the company’s own terminals located in Cubao and Avenida.

Other bus companies that serve the same route are Victory Liner, Dagupan Bus, Saulog Bus, Dangwa Transit, Philippine Rabbit. They operate from terminals in Cubao, Pasay, and Sampaloc.

What time do buses for Baguio leave?

There are a lot of departures any time of the day and night.

From Cubao and Pasay, the first bus leaves at 1am and the last bus of the day – at 11pm. There are buses every hour.

There are round the clock departures from the Avenida bus station and only two rides a day from Sampaloc – at 6am and 10am.

How much time do buses need to reach Baguio?

Generally, a trip to Baguio should take about six hours. More if you travel by day as traffic can be heavy within the Metro Manila area.

What is the bus ticket price?

Prices for standard buses start from PHP700, but for the best travel experience we recommend choosing a first class bus – it is also called executive or premier class. Tickets for such comfortable buses cost PHP900-PHP1000.

Why choose a pricier bus?

First, executive and premier class buses offer on-board entertainment, Wi-Fi, are equipped with toilets and serve snacks and water en route.

They have soft reclining seats and more legroom. They also make less – if any – stops during the trip resulting in shorter travel time.

Tips for bussing to Baguio

Air-conditioning is often excessive – do pack layers in order not to freeze during your trip.

Road conditions between Manila and Baguio are currently quite good. The only annoying thing you can encounter during your trip is heavy traffic by day so we would strongly recommend opting for a night bus.

How to get from Manila to Baguio by taxi or shuttle van

It is also possible to travel to Baguio by taxi or shuttle van. It is not very common but can prove a good idea if you need to get to Baguio from Manila airport direct.

How much does a taxi trip to Baguio cost?

Travelling to Baguio by taxi comes at a price. Expect to pay about PHP7,000 for an ordinary car and up to PHP8,500 for a van accommodating up to 9 passengers.

What is the travel time from Manila to Baguio by taxi?

It takes from four and a half to 5 hours to get to Baguio by car. More if you need stops en route.

How to get from Manila to Baguio by plane?

Since 2012 the airport Loakan which serves the Baguio region was closed for commercial flights. In early 2019 direct Manila–Loakan flights will be available with Cebu Pacific.

The Loakan airport is located 5 km southeast of Baguio downtown which is easily reached via a short quarter-of-an-hour taxi ride.

Passenger reviews out of total 24 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.

Left the terminal 30 mins. late from the original sched but trip was fast. Arrived Baguio within 4 hours. Restroom inside bus has a foul odor. Bus stewardess was also coughing hard the entire trip (without ever covering her mouth) and it was very unhygienic and uncomfortable for the riders.

I couldn't tell if it was a premier or deluxe. But the bus was in top condition and seems new. But it didn't have the individual screens per seat - though that's not that important for me because I'd probably not use it anyway. The bus also had onboard wifi (Smartbro). They gave us each of us a blanket, a bottled water and a Rebisco biscuit. Overall, a very good experience.
