    • Medical/Health Insurance Question

      Manila Yesterday

      To the Expats and foreign students who live in the Philippines, I am researching what health/medical insurance company to sign up with, preferably US based, that will provide good and reliable coverage while a person is living in the Philippines. It appears there are quite a few companies out there. One I found that seems to have comprehensive coverage is GeoBlue. Anyone have any experience with GeoBlue? Any other companies that you had good (or bad) experience with? Thanks.

I have inquired to Partas earlier and there is no direct route to Luna from Cubao, which means that I have to drop off in Balaoan. Also I would like to request for directions going back to Cubao.

      Hey all, we are backpackers traveling to Palawan in late Jan. We land in the eve and are looking for a good place for 2 nights. Preferably a place with pool. We will spend up to $50ish per nite because we want comfort after a 27hr flight. (after that we will be back to backpacker budget) It would be ideal to find something in walking distance or bicycle to restaurants, beaches,etc.
      Can anyone help out with recommendations.

    • Where to go to avoid the typhoon?

      Philippines Dec 3, 2014 at 4:34 PM

      I'm in Oslob now after swimming with whale sharks which was awesome btw. I had planned to spend the next week on Cebu and Bohol then a few days on Boracay before flying home. So my question is I guess is there somewhere else in the Philippines I can fly to, from Cebu, to avoid it then fly back early next week? Somewhere with nice beaches and snorkeling would be good. N.B. I've already been to Puerto Galera. Lastly after seeing how low lying the land is around here I hope if the typhoon comes this way everyone will be ok as a storm surge would cause a lot of damage.

I am planning to take trips from Manila to Baguio from 7am, and from Baguio to Banaue, if possible even if that means that I would arrive in BATAD in the evening. I really want to go to BATAD. If I can't travel on that very day on Oct29, then I would have no chance as well of touring BATAD. My TOur will not be complete. Pls reply. Thanks !

      Ohayami Bus to Banaue

      Banaue Nov 17, 2010 at 1:15 AM

      Hi. We're going to Sagada this weekend and we're taking the via Banaue route. We just found out that Autobus has stopped operation for the meantime and we were referred to take Ohayami Bus (its terminal is about two blocks away from Autobus terminal in Cayco St). Anyone here who tried taking Ohayami bus from Manila to Banaue? Are they okay (not prone to breakdowns on the road, leaves for banaue on time)? How long does it travel from Manila to Banaue? Is it 9hrs?

      I'd also like to ask if there is an alternative to the 830am jeepney from Banaue to Bontoc? I'd like to be sure that we have a back up if in case we cannot take the 830am jeepney? I've read somewhere that there are also buses plying Banaue-Bontoc route, is this true? Where is the bus terminal in banaue? Thanks.

    • Advice on Banaue Itinerary

      Banaue Oct 18, 2010 at 11:18 AM

      We have planned the following itinerary for our Banaue part of the trip:
      This is for the week before Easter. So I assume it will be quite busy. Would really appreciate advice or comments

      Thu: Take the Florida bus to Banaue at 10.45pm. Arrive Friday morning (How early in advance is the bus ticket bookable?). Register at tourist office and take either a jeepney or tricycle to the viewpoints and on to Batad. Stay at Hillview Inn if possible. Get a porter for our luggage and later hike to the village.

      Next day early morning, start to hike to the waterfall, pick up our luggage afterwards and hike back to the Saddle. Arrange for transport back to Banaue at around 3pm and travel on to Uhaj Native Village Inn. Would we have to organise our return transport the day before? If so, how reliable are drivers to pick you up? Can it be arranged from Batad instead, maybe through the B&B? Also if we leave from the Saddle at 3pm, would we manage to get to the Uhaj Native Village Inn before dark?

      Sunday: relax and explore rice terraces around the Inn, perhaps travel to Hapao and return to Manila on the 8 pm bus. Are we likely to encounter any difficulties getting seats on the return leg of the bus journey, if we try to book it as soon as we arrive in Banaue? I’m a bit concerned given it will be only a week before Easter. Is it not possible to book the return leg before setting out from Manila?

      Are jeepnies for private hire readily available in Banaue?

      I also have a question regarding the waterfall hike at Batad. If we set out after breakfast, do we have enough time to get to the waterfall and back up to the Saddle by 3pm? I know it’s only supposed to take an hour each way, but that surely depends on the hikers. I am reasonably fit and have done other major hikes such as the Inca trail and the W in Torres del Paine, but I am not too keen on heights and tend to take my time when descending any steep slopes or clambering over boulders. I don’t want to miss out on this though, as it looks fab. Any advice would be appreciated.

      hi all
      I've been reading some posts about how to get to the Rice Terraces. As far as I understand it we can get a bus from Manila to Banaue - this bus leaves Manila about 10.30/10.45 pm?
      I haven't been able to find a huge amount of information about the return journey and had a couple of questions:
      1. Do the buses go every day?
      2. What time is the return trip from Banaue to manila?
      3. Are there pitstops along the way (e.g. for food/restrooms etc.)

    • How can I get to Laoag (or Vigan) from Banaue?

      Banaue Jun 18, 2010 at 3:26 PM

      Hi trekkers,

      We’re planning a trip around the Philippines this year, and need a little expert advice. Question is how would you get to Laoag from Banaue? We’ll be visiting the rice terraces and want to go to the sand dunes after. We’d even suffice for a route from Banaue to Vigan if there isn’t a good route to Laoag.

      We are trying to avoid backtracking to Baguio or Manila. We’ve heard there’s a route from Banaue to Tuguegarao, and then onto Laoag, but that seems like it would be the long way around.

      We’re looking for the quickest route. We’ll be traveling the week of Christmas too, if that changes anything.

      Please include departure times, stations, phone numbers, anything you can.

      Thanks for your help all!

      Banaue Itinerary Help

      Banaue Mar 25, 2010 at 5:34 AM

      Hi everyone,
      I am landing in Clark via Airasia about 4pm and hope to take the bus go to Baguio at that time. As I understand the bus goes around 5 hours, so I come to Baguio at about 10-11pm. Is it possible then to change the bus going to Banaue at night? Or do I need to sleep in Baguio and in the morning go to Banaue?

      The problem is that i have only one day for Banaue. What is the best for me to see there?

      Is there any night buses going from Banaue to Manila? If so when it arrives and how far is the bus terminal from the aiport in Manila? I’m choosing among 2 flights: one at 5.30am, other at 11.30am.

      And the last question:). Is it safe to travel to Banaue alone? Or do I need to use a guide or to find a group of people to travel together?

      Thanks in advance for answering!

      HI
      I am considering taking the flight from Manila to Cauayan and from Cauayan - to take a bus to Banaue
      I am looking for the bus schedule from Cauayan to Banaue and from Banaue to Cauayan so that I can book the flights according to it.
      If there is a car rental agency in Cauayan that has 4WD cars to rent -it might be even better.
      I will be glad to receive any information...
      Thanks
