How to Go to Surigao City from Manila
Steps and directions to go to Surigao City from Manila
Surigao City of Surigao Del Norte is a city found in Mindanao. It has a lot of Islands which is great for surfing. In fact, Surigao City is called the Island of Adventures. There is the famous white sand of Basul Island and the waves of Siargao.
To go to Surigao from Manila, first, you need to get to Mindanao by Plane or By Ferry – Whichever is convenient. I suggest taking a plane from Manila to Butuan City. It is nearer to Surigao City than the Cagayan De Oro air port. The ticket from Manila to Butuan Costs around 4,500 pesos if you take the Philippine Airlines. You can get it cheaper if you look for promos.
Once in Butuan City, you then need to get to the Butuan City Terminal. A Bus Liner Company called Bachelor Express has a route to Surigao City. There are many Routes in that terminal so just look for the Bus that goes to Surigao City. If you take the air-conditioned bus, the fare will cost around 165 and last around three hours.
You will arrive at the terminal which is a bit far from the City Proper. So, you need to take a Multi-cab to the City. The fare will only Cost you about 10.
