{travel} Sagada Trip Itinerary and Expenses

banaue-by-ceabacolor-2

The scorching summer weather here in the Philippines makes you want to dream about traveling to a snowy country! But one need not travel far (uhmmm well you do have to travel for almost 12hours) to experience cool breeze and fresh air! Roel and I were able to tick Sagada off of our bucket list! We’ve always wanted to travel together up north to a more laid back place, away from the city, the beach, and of course the heat!

When traveling to a new place, I always do extensive research of the place especially when planning my budget. I tried to ‘diy’ our trip to Sagada, but after hours and hours of googling, I finally decided to get a tour package from AWNW. An absolute best decision for us. Not only is it convenient, transportation wise, but also because everything’s been planned and arranged to make sure we get the best out of our short visit in Sagada.

For the budget conscious who wants to visit Sagada, here’a a run down of our expenses during the trip. :)
