Baguio Expenses And Where To Stay

It’s nice to be back in the City of Pines and this time I traveled with my college friends. It’s funny that after a decade we all get to bond in spite of being in a different group of friends back in college. It was a very relaxing 3-day trip with them.

It’s been weeks for us to finally decide to go to Baguio as 3 of y college buddies were all working in a corporate company and I am the only one who’s ready anytime.
When we finally decided that we will stay in Baguio for 3 days while they are on a holiday vacation we booked our bus ticket online, the good thing about booking online is you have a 1-time option to rebook your ticket. You can book Victory Bus ticket online 5 days prior to your travel.
Manila to Baguio has 2 options – Regular air-conditioned bus and First Class Airconditioned bus (with onboard toilet).

FARES:

Regular a/c bus Pasay to Baguio cost 455 Pesos / 9 USD ONE WAY, travel time is 5-6 hours with a 2-3 stopover.
First Class a/c bus is 750 Pesos / 15 USD ONE WAY, travel time is 4 hours with 1 stopover.
Best time to travel to Baguio: Early morning, less traffic in EDSA

Daily Budget:

It will always depend on where you will stay, where you will eat and what activities you will do during your stay. We stayed in a 3-star hotel, we paid 2,000 pesos per night with FREE plated Filipino breakfast for 4 pax.

We got a nice deal from TRAVELOKA with a discount of 800 Pesos/hotel/night. That is actually a VERY GOOD DEAL, we only paid 500 pesos per night/pax and we get to stay in a nice hotel, with comfy bed, en-suite bathroom, and FREE breakfast.

 

 

Hotel Henrico Legarda

With a nightly rate of 2,000 to 3,000 pesos (rates are higher during Peak season).

We loved our hotel room so much – who wouldn’t? With a view like this every day? Fresh air and cold breeze – perfect!!!

 

The Room

With 2 queen size bed, tv, en-suite bathroom, spacious room, and no aircon. Common was in Baguio, it’s always cold or chilly weather here even on summer days. No comforter which I don’t like much about and the bed is not that comfy.

 

 

The restaurant where we ate will soon be posted on my next blog.
