To Banaue:

As of just a year ago, there are vans that go from Baguio to Banaue. They depart at 9:30am, the ticket is 415p and the travel time is about 7 hours with stops. The van is a great option.  It takes a different route than the bus does, passing through Sagada and Bontoc, climbing through the mountains and valleys with spectacular views of the rice terraces along the way. You’ll get to know the other local passengers very well and the the van will even make special stops for foreigners to take pictures!
