Libotero Roadtrip to Baguio and Banaue
The Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) is the Philippines’ only land-locked region. It is consisted of the provinces of Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province and Baguio City (the regional center). The Cordillera region encompasses most of the areas within the Cordillera Central mountain range of Luzon, the largest range in the country. This region is home to numerous indigenous tribes collectively called the Igorot.
What has been planned for years has finally come to fruition. It was my first time to do a roadtrip to the Cordilleras after six years and it is definitely an unforgettable experience. I will not hesitate to revisit the region once the opportunity comes. For the meantime, I would like to share our marvelous and astonishing experience in the Cordilleras. I’m writing our experience also to help others who desire to visit the place but don’t know the essential information such as where to start, what to visit, etc.
- Plan your roadtrip ahead. You can’t just go there unprepared. Finalize your itinerary, and your hotel bookings.
- Buy some maps. I recommend EZ Maps. Get the Luzon EZ Map (shows the entire national highway sytsem for Luzon, as well as major roads, distances and cities) and the Baguio City EZ Map. It is exciting and interesting to see where you are and how far you have gone in North Luzon. Also, this gives you an assurance that you are on the right track. Google Earth and Google Maps can help you too.
- Get your cash ready and don’t rely on ATMs. The further you get in the North, the lesser the ATMs are. Baguio City is highly urbanized though, so you can expect that there are a lot of ATMs but its always best to be sure than sorry.
- Check your car days before your roadtrip. Make sure it is well tuned up. You wouldn’t want to encounter engine troubles while you’re enjoying your roadtrip, right? Also, make sure your tires have the right pressure and bring a spare tire.
- Keep your gas half full all the time. Whenever you see a gas station, don’t hesitate, get your tank refilled.
- Bring food and drinks. At times when making a stopover is untimely, it helps if you have with you some chips and bottled/canned drinks to fill your stomach.
- Here are even more roadtrip tips from Goodyear that will surely help you plan yours.
