Is it safe to travel to Baguio, Mountain province, Banuae?

It is safe to travel to Baguio, although the travel time is a bit longer. There is major roadwork in Villasis, Pangasinan, necessitating a circuitous detour. Then there is the fallen bridge connecting Pangasinan and La Union, and all vehicles negotiate this road by driving down the dry river bed. Otherwise, the travel is safe.

Going to Banaue from Baguio is NOT safe, not because of NPAs. The road is practically non-existent, even if it does look like a first-class national hi-way when looking at road maps. The Halsema hi-way is being repaired and meanwhile, the road has been dug up and it is taking like forever to repair. Baguio to Bontoc is ok, even if there is repair work on about 35% of the road. But Bontoc to Banaue is terrible ! !. The travel will be by dusty, narrower roads on zigzags thru deep ravines. I took this road from Banaue to Bontoc, going to Sagada, using a 4x4 and regretted taking the trip because I felt like I exposed myself and my companions to danger. We made it though, but would not recommend the same route to a relative or a friend.

If you want to go to Banaue anyway, take a Manila- Banaue trip. Not a Baguio- Banaue itinerary.

You have to make 2 separate trips if you want to go to both Baguio and Banaue. Both will be safe.

Why any High scoring student ever said to join in Politics as Ambition, when Governing is such sacred ?

You never know in which hole money lies....score, dear and dig hard and fast( that's how you scored).

Is anyone else having trouble with every single bloody company you have a service with?

I've been having similar issues with EVERYTHING!!!!

My dig. cable- half the channels don't work (comcast)

also comcast the cable went out and it took two days for someone to come and then they said they didn't have the right tools to fix it, wait some more, next guy said, oh, it's an outside thing- have to call the outside guy and you don't have to be home at all!

Bank charged me $120 in false overdraft charges (no where close to being overdrawn) and if I hadn't been looking I never would have known.

another service that is on automatic payment tried to suspend my service because the payment never got processed on their end (money was taken out of my account as normal)

For work I was trying to make a wire transfer and was speaking to the 'account manager' at the bank in the wire transfer department. I was actually told to "look up" the bank's (same bank) "routing number and call back when I had it" I was shocked I said UMMM.... I thought maybe you could give me that number? and the guy actually got mad at me and said that he didn't have time for that sort of thing!!!

And everywhere I go it just seems that the workers are slower and ruder than ever. I used to work in retail and I KNOW how annoying it is but there is a certain obligation to perform the task for which you are paid. I'm not looking for service with a smile or for the cashier to remember my name but GEESH! the guy at home depot shouldn't say "don't look at me, I'm not a plumber" and guy at the deli counter shouldn't take 25 minutes (quite literally) to bag up some sliced turkey! I've been scolded by cashiers for 'fancy vegetables'- they were just Brussell Sprouts!

And the public utilities would make me think I am living in a developing country not in a suburb of the national capital. This calendar year I've been out of electricity for a total of 8 days (on three occasions) and water for 4 (1 day and 3 days)- then I had to BOIL my drinking water for another 4 days because it wasn't safe!!!

Geesh, you really got me started on a rant but this has been a particular sore spot with me lately!
