How to get to Baguio City and Benguet from Manila faster and less traffic

Cordillera - Do you want to go to Baguio City faster with less car traffic on the road this holiday season? Don't you know that there is now a new alternate road open to motorists to avoid the traffic congestion on Marcos Highway. 

The Department of Public Works and Highways is encouraging visitors coming to Baguio to take the newly-opened alternate road, the ASIN-NANGALISAN-SAN PASCUAL, TUBA, BENGUET-TUBAO, LA-UNION BDRY. ROAD. 
According to PNA, the new road is now passable to all types of vehicles, cutting travel time to Baguio by at least an hour. 

Baguio City Mayor Domogan also said that the use of the alternate route will address the traffic situation of Marcos Highway, considering it's capacity is just for 34,568 vehicles.

The opening of the newly constructed Anduyan bridge last month helped travelers from Central Luzon to reach Baguio City and Benguet with less traffic and faster than taking the Marcos Highway.

Motorists coming from Manila to Baguio can take the left road at the intersection going to Tubao and Agoo. 

About 50 meters from the intersection after a gasoline station is a large signage saying, "Alternate road to Baguio", which will lead to Asin Road. You can stop by at the hot spring to relax for some times.

Upon reaching the hot springs, go straight up to the Ifugao Wood Carving Village passing the BenCAB museum. Upon reaching Kilometer 4, on the left side is the diversion road leading to Naguillian Road, the right side leading to Suello Village and exit to Marcos Highway, and the middle road leading to Cooyeesan Mall, which is about 50 meters to the Lourdes Grotto intersection.

If going to La Trinidad, Benguet, from Cooyeesan, take the road on the left side, which leads to Tam-awan and Puguis, straight to the strawberry fields.
