CDO – Iligan – Ozamis – Oroquieta – Dipolog | Transportation Guide | How Get There Directions

This is a CDO – Iligan – Ozamis – Oroquieta – Dipolog detailed travel directions on how to get to these cities, and make do of a smooth travel along Northern Mindanao. There I was looking forward to a long weekend with Pinoy Travel Bloggers who were invited to witness the Hudyaka 2012 at Dipolog City. There were supposedly 10 slots available for bloggers but only 6 people came and celebrated Hudyaka with the locals.
But to get there, we have it to ourselves to get there on time for the busiest part of the month long celebration. Both Chino | Juanderful Pinoy, and Christian | Lakad Pilipinas were doing an early head start as they would do a long, and epic road trip from Manila to Dipolog. Yes. The good thing about their long bus rides and RORO trips in between is that they get to have side trips along the way.

Based in Iligan City, I traveled with Jam | Travel Jams, and Xy-Za | PurpleSlipperz for only half a day road trip to Dipolog City, to meet the rest of the people I’ll be meeting for the first time, and spend Hudyaka with them. Though it was a short road trip for me — I got sick along the way, tortured by with too much sight-seeing during the bus rides. But this is one route I would like to recommend for the many side trips you can have along the way.
