Travel in North Luzon, Philippines

I want to travel from Laoag to Vigan, Sagada, Banaue and back to Laoag for return flight to Manila. I have 6 days. Possible by bus? How many travel hours involved for each leg? Thanks

You might wanna check the map for better understanding. Banaue to Laoag is simply crazy if you try to travel in 1day.

Vigan is not really worth the travel not unless you had a reason to be there.

For me, a good northern luzon tour would be... Manila - banaue - sagada - baguio - mt. pinatubo - manila.

Manila to banaue... (380++kms) 7hrs to 12hrs depending on which day you travel.

Banaue to Sagada... 4hrs. (can't remember the distance)

Sagada to baguio... 151kms but it will take around 7hrs. 4 stops should not be miss along halsema hi-way. We did a couple of dozens stop with my last visit!!!

Baguio to Manila... 265 kms. As of Dec. 20011, it took us about 7hrs due to road works. Normal travel time should be less than 5hrs.

I agree about the banaue-laoag thing though I would still recommend a visit to the heritage city of Vigan.
