Florida bus Sampaloc

Will be travelling on a Florida bus overnight to Banaue and back in April. I have heard it is very cold on the bus. Just how cold should I expect it to be? On the way back we will be arriving at Sampaloc in the very early hours of the morning. Are taxis readily available from there? Or should we arrange some transport in advance?

Cold as your plane ride at night. No problem about getting taxis even at 3am, I think you have better chance of getting one than during rush hours.

Hi Wolvesblue2,

It is not that cold at the initial journey. However when the night sets in and the bus moving uphill, it may be cold to some.

I have personally taken the bus and it does not feel that cold but it is still good to bring a light blanket. The bus terminal will have vendor selling it.

As for the return trip, do note that the bus will make a stop at Cubao terminal first and then to Sampoloc. So if you intend to alight at Sampoloc, tell the driver or the conductor.

This is a travel forum. Please look for the bus company for the schedule.

It's not cold to someone from UK, it's just a coach with air conditioning.

People living in the Philippines are used to temperatures of 30 degrees, so 20 degrees feels cold to them.

You will probably find it a welcome relief from the heat!
