Dumaguete City To Sipalay Dec 23rd by bus or private van.

Hi Any help with the following would be appreciated. Many Thanks Nick

We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 16 and 13 year old. We wish to do the above which involves bus changes. We would rather go by bus but if that is going to be very difficult due to Christmas then we might look at a van.

1. Being Dec 23rd will getting on the buses be easy? Can we book tickets?

2. If we were to get a private van roughly how much? (One estimate we saw was 4800 pesos).

If we did get a private van are they easy to arrange and how.

Many Thanks Nick

Welcome!

There is a direct bus that goes fr Dgte to Sipalay. It is only once a day and it is 11:30 or 1:30pm I will double check for you in a bit. The direct buses makes it a longer trip. Maybe 5-6 hours as opposed to 2-3 hours by private car.

However the price difference is substantial. It will cost tge four of you probably at least a thousand or slightly more as compared to the 4800 for a trip. Price of 4800 is about right.

Get in touch with Harolds Mansion. They usually providel transfers for the Sipalay relsorts. New and comfortable van. Comes with a price tho.

Hope this helps

Btw 23rd is going to be really crowded. So take that into consideration.

I was told that the bus leaves for Sipalay around 1100hrs but it is good to check again.
