There are no flights to Baguio City.
Tagaytay is not comparable. Travelling to Baguio and traversing Kennon Road is very much part of the fun if you travel during daytime.
well, there's an airort in Baguio if you can afford to charter a flight, I think that would be possible. for sure it's a long bus ride from Manila.
Victory Liner also runs hourly services.
Baguio is reached via 3 spectacular winding roads; Marcos Highway, Kennon Road and Naguillan Road. All are equally spectacular and any preference is purely subjective.
Travel time is four 4 hours by car from Manila or 5-6 hours by bus.
Thanks again. Time is always a problem - we only have 9 days. Should we leave out Tagaytay and do Baguio instead?
Our itinery so far is to arrive in Manila (day 1 - staying at Pan Pacific Hotel), then 2 days in Tagaytay, 4 days in Boracay and the final 2 days in Makati (for shopping!) before leaving the Philippines.
Would love your opinion.
I suggest you look at the websites for both places and decide. I would not want to influence you with my personal preference.
What is it you want to buy in Makati that will take 2 days?
There may be better places to go for specific items.
If you want to buy souvenirs, for example, then you will get them far cheaper in Quiapo under the bridge.
My husband is into electronics and is hoping to buy transformers, relays, capacitors, panel gauges, etc. Not shopping for anything specific, just looking to see what takes our fancy.
Then Sta Cruz and Quiapo are the places to look.
Evangalista (parallel with Quezon Blvd behind Quiapo Church) and JP Rizal (formely Avenida).
There are also shops in the side roads off the main streets.
Can you please recommend which comfortable bus to take from Manila to Baguio and return? any website to check the time schedule?
