I booked Ohayami cos they were the only option available to go to Banaue on 12go website. Although the service was good, the condition of the bus was just poor. It had a strange stench and was cramped. Not recommended for long journey

Just a horrendously cold bus. Been on plenty of shockers through SE Asia but this one took the cake. I'm sure they must of been transporting ice to Banaue, or frozen meat. Some of the locals were prepared and had set up mini igloos between...More

The bus: The bus was as expected… a little cold, a little uncomfortable, but departed on time and was easy to book. But what makes this a 1/5 stars is that they allowed a man onto the bus who deceives tourists. I am assuming they...More
