Travel itinerary for vacation to the northern part of luzon
Iran : I find this site very informative and helpful for travellers, i am planning to bring my vacation to the northern part of luzon. i intend to go to pagudpud, to laoag, vigan and lastly to tuguegarao to visit my best friend. would you mind to give some tips which is the best way to do to be able to realize this plan.
I am quite confuse if i take plane to laoag and then drive to vigan or pagudpud, then after three days to tuguegarao. how far is tuguegarao from laoag?
what if we take bus from manila to the north and take some stop over to some places in the north like baguio,banaue, vigan, to laoag then pagudpud and then lastly to tuguegarao.then back to manila.
sorry its quite complicated.
Ryan: Hi there,
You may want to consider this itinerary – Manila-Laoag (better fly)-Vigan-Laoag-Pagudpud- Tuguegarao (6 1/2 hours bus travel at least from Laoag)- Tabuk (Kalinga) – Bontoc (Mt. Province) – Sagada – Bontoc (Mt. Province) – Banawe – Manila.
Aside from the flight into Laoag, all travels would have to be made by land – buses, jeepneys, tricycles or rented vans or 4 wheel drives. Skip Baguio, you are not missing anything – really. From Tuguegarao to Banawe – I am using the route that I know has been tried by other people, I am not privy to any alternate routes that takes you straight from Tuguegarao to Banawe,
Hope this helps!
