1. Re: Laoag-Vigan-Baguio Travel Guide

I am not familiar with the mileage of Kia carnival.

Urvan, grandia, starex, and most of minivan usually consume same amount of fuel. Manila to Laoag... minimum 530kms. With provincial trip, those vehicle can go 10 to 13kms per liter... depend on engines condition. Let say 12kms/liter...

12/500 = 44.17liters x 46diesel = P2,031 of fuel one way.

prepare P5000 worth of fuel for the whole trip.

Make your way to the north luzon expressway.

After paying your toll at Dau, a couple of kilometers more is where you enter SCTEX to avoid mabalacat/ capas traffic. Careful not to take subic route.

At the end of the SCTEX make a right turn going to tarlac city.

About 9kms... look for matatalaib rd.! Landmark: petron gas station at the corner of a "Y" road. Take/ make the right turn to avoid city's traffic.

Next traffic to avoid is in san fernado, la union.

As you pass by Ilocos Training and Regional Madical Center hospital, look out for the san fernando by-pass road. it's about 500meters away from the hospital. you will reach the san juan high way portion.

Then, 8hours more to go!

I strongly suggest you leave manila around 11pm to avoid city traffic and you don't have to take the alternative/by-road mentioned earlier.

Laoag to Baguio: Take the Naguillian road at Bauang, La Union going to baguio.
