    Sagada is a beautiful place. I’ve been to that place several times while growing up. My father used to bring us to beautiful places in the Mt. Provinces for vacations back when. Stop by Bontoc on your way to Sagada. Breathtaking! I just hope it is still unpolluted.

    hi to all
    just want to share my experience during our vacation in sagada. it was breathtaking. 14 hours of trip from manila to bontoc is worth it.
    people are so friendly. if you want to cook your own food during your stay you should book at travellers inn. it cost only 200 per head and you can cook also. i think you have to pass 3 mountains before you reach the sagada proper. youl’ll never regret your stay in sagada. ENJOY!!!

    I went to Sagada alone last November 2008. I stayed at the Canaway Rest House and I absolutely loved it. The location is convenient and the couple who lives there are absolutely charming. Tell them you heard about it from Mai. I miss them! Oh, and Sagada is safe to go by yourself. Just watch out for yourself, and meet as many people as you can!
