How to get to Pagudpud
If you do not want to spend too much time on a bus you can fly from Manila to Laoag (one flight daily). From there take a bus up to Pagudpud (1,5 hours). Otherwise you can take a bus going from Manila to Baguio, from there take another bus up to Vigan and further up to Laog and Pagudpud.
If you decide on taking the buses, it’s probably going to take you two days.
