12 hours and over 600 kilometers after. We took the deluxe Florida bus going here, taking the Manila-Laoag-Sanchez Mira route (P750, one way). The last time I went to Cagayan, it took 12 hours just to get to Tuguegarao so this all-nighter (more precisely, 8pm-8am) trip came as a welcome surprise. Pretty fast trip considering the many stopovers for meals and loading/unloading passengers. The bus was comfortable but as with any overnight trip, it's wise to bring a jacket (or a malong) as it turns really cold in the wee hours of the morning.
