Yes Way! your read it right... SAGADA now has an ATM machine.. thanks to wireless internet by Smart, we now have a machine that will save locals and tourist from running out of money. the machine is connected by a modem that enables transaction to any place where there is smart signal.
This will surely increase tourist spending to around a rough estimate of 30%... We have been long waiting for this time to come, and problems solved for tourists who traveled at least 12 grueling butt aching ride but want to extend days to explore Sagada or saving locals from traveling at least 12 more kilometers to bontoc just to withdraw.
WELL, here is the solution.. I hope they load this up with large sums of money so it will not run out..... :D
The machine is found inside the Rural Bank of Sagada located below the Municipal building. They have plans to transfer the machine at the municipal hall near the police station to make it operate 24/7.
