    Thank you very much for an interesting, insightful and informative account of your experience. We are planning of going to Banaue also and this is a good help.

    Wow!! What an informative blog! It’s sorted me right out! I’m planning on doing the exact same itinerary in March! I have two queries though and am hopeful you can help me :))
    1) You did 2 days 1 night right? (It’s what i gathered from the article) Day 1 Banuae and stayed there, Day 2 daytrip to banad!?
    2) You got the 6pm bus back to Manila with Ohyami!? It wasn’t rushed and you had enough time to get back to the bus!?

    I hope you enjoyed Kuala Lumpur! It’s a wonderful city!

    Jo, you got all right for Banaue . For me the Las Vegas is the best place to eat and enjoy at least a short evening. They do some jamming there to and it can be some fun.
    I would say too, anyone going to Banaue on a short trip, do the Batad Tour, its hard but really the better.

    Hi Jo. Thank you for this travelogue. It’s exactly what I am looking for – right details and inside info. :-) Planning to go visit but only have 2 days max. I guess I would have to plan it another time to truly get the feel without being rushed?

    Once again, thank you!
