We are from Batangas pa so we travel to Manila (Cubao) para sa bus diretso sa Sagada. Yes, u heard it right. May bus going to Sagada which is the CODA LINES Corporation. Nag avail muna kami ng ticket thru their Online Booking.  Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide

May 2 choices na bus, Semi Deluxe; Super Deluxe (with Bathroom). Pinili namin yung Super Deluxe para comfortable. Travel time is roughly 12 hours. Pero nung nag travel kami, 2 hours kami na stranded along Banaue kasi may Landslide since rainy season talaga. Dumating kami sa Sagada ng 0945H, diretso kami sa Sagada Municipal Tourist Info Center, nag bayad kami ng P40/pax. Magbibigay din sila ng Map. Meron din dun nag aayos ng tour, pipili ka na lang.

Since DIY kami, nag hanap muna kami ng bahay na pag iiwanan ng gamit. Nag lakad lakad kami (Southwards) para pumili. We chose to stay in Labanet Lodge. Sobrang mura ng bahay tas sobrang ganda pa ng room. Sa 4th floor yung room so expected na sobrang ganda ng view! 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay

Ang dami din kakainan dito. Syempre, bago pumunta ng Sagada nag search muna ako ng mga resto na affordable at masarap. Lakad lang Southwards, tabi tabi na ang resto dun. We decided na sa Strawberry Cafe mag lunch. And dude, believe me, sobrang sarap talaga! Lalo na yung Baked Porkchop and their Adobo. Grabe, wala akong masabi talaga! Yung rice nila is organic Sagada brown rice. Must try in Sagada! 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay

Since we have plenty of time pa, nag lakad lakad pa kami at hinanap ang Sagada Lemon Pie House. We tried their Pie (of course), and its so Lit! Unang tikim pa lang, bibili ka pa agad ng isang slice ng pie! Sobrang sarap! Nag try din kami ng kanilang Lemon Tea at sobrang sarap din! 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay  Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide

Siesta after lunch. Sobrang exhausted sa byahe pero sulit naman sa magagandang view na madadaanan lalo na ang Banaue Rice Terraces. 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to StayIt’s too good to be true! Sobrang ganda! 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay

We decided na unang puntahan ay ang St Mary’s Church. Sobrang Instagrammable nung place. Sobrang tahimik. Sobrang ganda. One of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever been. 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay Malapit lang ang Echo Valley sa church so yun muna ang unang pupuntahan namin. We paid P300 for a tour guide, si Ate Barbara Bumatang (full blooded Igorot) sobrang bait nya, grabe! Since wala pa kami friends, medyo pricey ang tour. Nag lakad kami for almost an hour para makita ang Calvary Hill Cemetery and Echo Valley Hanging Coffins. Sobrang ganda ng place at view! Sobrang amazing din ng Hanging Coffins. One of the best! 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay

After our Eco Tour, biglang umulan so nag stay muna kami sa St Mary’s Church. Kasama namin si Ate Barbara Bumatang, according to her maganda daw pumunta sa Sagada tuwing November 1. Dun daw kasi nag titipon-tipon ang mga Igorot kagaya nya para sa isang fiesta ata yun. They will wear their usual Igorot attires. Sabi pa nya, January-February daw ang pinaka malamig na month sa Sagada.

From St Mary’s Church, nag punta kami sa Tourist Info Center para mag hanap ng tour sa Marlboro Country. At dahil 2 lang kami, sobrang mahal! We need to pay P2,650. Ang mahal, dude! So nag hanap hanap muna kami ng ibang turista na naghahanap din ng Marlboro tour. Luckily, we met Giselle and company (turista from Manila) sa Sagada Public Market. We talked ganern, kwentuhan. According to her, nag tour sila sa lahat ng tourist spot sa Sagada that costs P2,500 lang. So inggit kami. Nirecommend nila si Kurkey, their tour guide and we gave thanks.

We contacted Kurkey while having our coffee at Bana’s Cafe (Best Coffee Shop in Sagada, A MUST TRY!) Sabi nya, ibabayad lang namin is P1,450 to accommodate 1-10 persons. So we need to look for other tourist na mag Marlboro tour. Luckily, we met these two Cebuanos (Ghenz and Biboy) na naghahanap din ng tour. Pag hahatian namin ang P1,450 para hindi masyado masakit sa bulsa 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay P363/pax kaming apat. (why not) So it’s settled then. Pero nung gabing yun, we received a message from Ghenz na may gusto din sumama sa Marlboro tour, 2 foreigners. So 6 kami, 250/pax na lang (YES! )

We decided na mag dinner together (Ghenz and Biboy) sa Yogurt House (Southward, Sagada near Strawberry Cafe) para pag usapan at mag kwentuhan na din. The best yung Yoghurt dito, guys! Medyo pricey but worth it naman! Sobrang ganda ng place, rusty style ang resto nila. 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay

At exactly 04:00 am kami umalis, para maabutan namin ang sun rise which is 05:30 am. 30-40 minutes trekking, medyo muddy paakyat pero worth it yung view sa taas! 05:00 kami nakataas.

Boy, I almost cried! Ang ganda! Sobrang ganda! 360 view ang sea of clouds. Isa sa mga Bucketlist ko, at sobrang fulfilling kasi finally nakita ko na sya personally. A MUST VISIT IN SAGADA! 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay Please, please, visit this place! Mas maganda daw ang view dito sa Marlboro Country kesa sa Kiltepan Peak kasi minsan hindi daw nakikita ang sea of clouds. We stayed for an hour. Kung pwede nga lang na dito na forever! Sobrang ganda kasi ❤️ Too beautiful to be true 2D1N Sagada DIY Travel Budget Guide 2018 | Budget + Itinerary | How to Get There | Where to Stay
