Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
Want to know how to get to Baguio from Vigan and back by public transportation? Tutubi's companion made the recent trip to baguio via Vigan and here's the information on this route.
Vigan to Baguio Bus fare: about PhP250.00 travel time: around 3 hours (at night) would probably be 5 or 6 hours during the day knowing the traffic on the Ilocos Sur to Bauan, La Union bus route by Fariñas Transit and Partas Transport
(manila to baguio travel time is about 6 to 7 hours on normal days)
Bus terminals in Vigan are near the Vigan Public Market, a tricycle ride away from anywhere in the heritage city of Vigan.
Note: this post will be updated with the contact numbers and trip schedules (first and last trips) of Partas and Fariñas when Tutubi gets hold of his Vigan Tourism brochure he got from a "sleeping on the job" tourism officer...literally sleeping when Tutubi inquired at their office near Calle Crisologo
