Top roads for Motorcycle Riding in Manila

Manila find motorcycle to rent

It is an outstanding satisfaction to hit the long open roads on a motorcycle. Making a trip to the Philippines is a perfect option, but it does not worth carrying your bike. Since the Philippines consists of 7,641 islands, transportation of a motorcycle from one island to another would be difficult for you as a tourist. But not for each island you have chosen to visit.

You will enjoy the rides between roads and mountains, you will rush your bike along seasides. Manila maintains its popularity because of its beautiful beaches and delightful ways. Although, the Philippines has thousands of islands. On the account of this, it has a place in the list amongst the largest archipelagos of the world. Taking a Motorcycle trip to Manila, Philippines is worth it.

Manila is a modest but fascinating place to visit. It is no issue to visit Manila Philippines, as it comes favorable with everyone’s budget. Manila is the capital city of the Philippines, famous for a lot of things like the Cathedral, Museum, Ocean Park, Intramuros, Chinatown, and many more.

The best thing about Manila, it has motorcycle rental facilities, which is the best thing about this place. While the Mainland of Luzon is the easiest way to go from Manila to Luzon. You can even drive there on your motorcycle.

One Day Trips:

                                               Marilaque, Tagaytay, Batangas, Laguna, and Bataan are the main routes to take from Manila. These roads are exceptionally suitable to make instant or One Day Motorcycle Rides. You can utilize the rental opportunities and choose your ride according to your wish.


                Marilaque is the best option to consider to make one day trip. My favorite day trip is Marilaque, a road crossing various provinces. You travel across Rizal Mountains, Laguna Mountain, and finally Infanta in Quezon at this route. With a length of 110 km, this highway’s cooler climate and scenic views make it a favorite for motorcyclists and mountain bikers. It takes approximately three to four hours to reach Infanta via this path.


                  In Cavite, Tagaytay City is one of the most popular tours, particularly for the people in the south. Tagaytay has a colder atmosphere, restaurants, and fantastic views of Taal Lake in Batangas. The provinces of Laguna, Cavite, Batangas, and Manila Metro are very close to busy cities. A quick 20-40 km trip, and you are twisting roads that brush against your face with a refreshing breeze of fresh air.


Batangas is also known as the “Town of Taal Heritage.” Taal is a small village based on historical architects from the 19th century. This place is famous for weekend destinations. Habitats love to visit seasides and diving spots. It has perfect points for Motorcycle Rides and camping sites. Nasugbu, Calatagan, and Laiya are famous coastal cities. You can reach Batangas in around 3 to 5 hours in the corresponding direction.


                            Southeast of Metro Manila is the Laguna which hugs the south side of Laguna de Bay, the country’s largest lake. The Laguna Loop is a famous horse-riding track, a 200-km-long path that rounds the entire lagoon. It is renowned for its cascades, hot springs, and mystical mountains. You can spend a whole day biking across the lake and spend quality time at different sights. You can visit more laid-back and beautiful towns in the East or stay overnight in Caliraya.


                    The Bataan Province, located about 120 km from Central Luzon. A historical and attractive destination from Manila. That was one of the last stands of the American and Filipino troops before being overrun by Japanese forces in the Second World War. For history lovers, it’s a place to visit. It remained titled after the province in which the notorious march began. Big bikers can reach Bataan via NLEX in only 2-3 hours, and smaller bikes must pass the road, which takes approximately 4 to 4.5 hours for services.

Overnight Trips:

                                 Overnight trips usually consist of 2 or 3 days. You can easily pick a bike from rental services and went out for your journey to explore La Union, Baguio, and Baler. 

La Union:

                La Union is a delightful surfing town in the area of Ilocos. You will find a wide range of accommodation that fits everyone’s budget easily. The riders will get here with just a 4 to 5-hour drive if they’re crossing the freeway at about 273 km (170 miles) north of Metro Manila. During the day, you should be able to enjoy the sea and nightlife at least overnight.


            Baguio City, the summer capital of the world, is one of the Philippines’ favorite destinations. “The town of Pines” is always a popular holiday and weekend destination, since it is close to Manila and the cool climate, excellent food, and tourist attractions. It’s also a famous destination for riders, due to the panoramic views and the twists. Baguio travels about 245 km takes approximately 4 to 5 hours.


         Baler is a good choice for riders, particularly those who love surfing. The city is situated 231 km northeast of Manila and roughly 7 to 8 hours by mountain pass. Aurora is also the capital of Manila. The views, the geographical formations, the relaxed feeling, and the beach are its highlights. It’s just lovely to go to the coastline. It’s perfect for riders because the breathtaking Pacific coastline is just waiting for you at the end of your journey. When you leave early at 5 a.m., you can come to this place by lunch, surf at night, and enjoy a few beers with the Pako Salad Pulutan and other local delicacies.

Longer Trips:

                      Longer Trips usually go for 3 to 5 days, enough time to explore Vigan, Sagada, Bicol, Ilocos Norte, and North Luzon Loop.

Vigan, Ilocos Sur:

The capital of Ilocos Sur, Vigan, has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is famous for its Spanish mansions, paved streets, and horse cars, the most common sight-seeing way for tourists. It is 10 to 12 hours straight from Manila for riders to get to Vigan. A few minutes away is almost any attraction. Vigan itself is riding friendly and quick to walk around.

Sagada, Mountain Province:

                                           The mountain city of Sagada is a good destination for adventure enthusiasts, nestled in a valley in the Mountain Province. This picturesque town in the Cordillera area has the most stunning mountain views, a cooler climate because of the high altitude and preserved culture. If you want a long journey through the mountains with astonishing views, this is a great option. The metro station is established in Sagada, approximately 391 km from Manila via Baguio, La Trinidad, Bontoc Road, Halsema Highway, and Mountain Trail. It takes about 10 to 12 hours to drive from here, splitting the trip in two (by spending your first day/night in Baguio), before heading to Sagada.


         The Bicol region consists of six provinces: Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, and Sorsogon, four of which are in the south-eastern part of Luzon, mainland Europe. One of the most important routes of the path from Manila to Bicol along Asian Highway 26 (AH26) is the Pan-Philippino Highway or the Maharliksa Highway. Bicol is 437 km from Manila Metro, and depending on your speed it will take about 10-12 hours to reach you. 

Ilocos Norte:

                    Ilocos Norte Province is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the north, on the North West corner of Luzon facing the West Philippine Sea. Ilocos Norte is popular for its historical churches and beautiful beaches, and mouthwatering cuisine. It is also home, for road trippers.

On the road to the coastal town of Pagudpud, the Viaduct Patapat, a 31-meter high coastal bridge is an attraction for riders. It takes approximately 12 to 13 hours if this is your ultimate destination for motorcyclists coming from the Manila metro station to reach Patapat Viaduct. The viaduct is Patapat 569 km from Manila Underground.

North Luzon Loop:

                            The North Luzon Loop, the 1200 km long ride on the main roads in Luzon Island is at the top of most Filipino riders’ bucket list. Some riders just speed up this and make minimum breaks, while others on smaller motorcycles state that it will take at least 2 days. But if you are after traveling and sightseeing, at least 5 days should probably be spent rounding the whole road.
