The easiest and cheapest way to get from Manila to Baguio is by taking a bus from either Cubao, Pasay, Paranaque, or Avenida.

manila to baguio by bus

Baguio has become a wanted destination in the past few years and many people from Manila are going there to spend their holidays or just for a quick staycation. There are too many reasons to visit the province of Benguet and escaping from the busy Manila even just for a day trip feels like a blessing.

Among the best things to do in Benguet include Mines View Park, Camp John Hay, Baguio Botanical Garden, boating at Burnham Park, and much much more, making it one of the best places to visit in the Philippines if you are looking for something more than islands and beaches.

When I spent my last holiday in Baguio I first stayed in a hostel in Quezon City and many backpackers were asking how to go to Baguio from Manila in2023, that’s why I’ve decided to create this guide so you can save time searching by spending somewhere else.
