We visited Baguio City18 years ago before leaving Manila for San Francisco. We drove about 6 to 7 hrs from Makati to Baguio including stopovers for food and going to the bathroom since I was 6 months pregnant with my 2nd child.
I had the chance to see the beauty of Baguio again last January to attend a wedding. We took Genesis Joy Bus from Pasay City station for 760PHP ( about $15.20 if the exchange currency is 50PHP for $1 ) for Premier. Genesis JoyBus transport has launched its JoyBus Premiere Class Bus which will only take you about 4 hours to reach Baguio, How cool is that!
