The Summer Capital of the Philippines.
I guess everyone had the chance to visit Baguio even before the movie “That thing called Tadhana” was filmed, not because of broken hearts but because of its weather.
An escape from the warmth of Manila.
I’ve been to Baguio three times already. First was last May 2011, second was last September 2013 and the last one was March 2014.
I know that all of us like Baguio for its weather, strawberries and the places that you can visit.
There are lots of places to visit but these are the most visited places in Baguio:
– Burnham Park
– Mine’s View
– Wright Park
– The Mansion
– Camp John Hay
– Session Road
Here are some photos taken on three different years.

I haven’t tried it yet because I had a foot injury that time while we didn’t have the time to go there on my second and third visit.

Food trip and we chose pasta dishes.

Where to stay:
As for overnight accommodation, you can easily find a place to stay anywhere in the city.
Overnight Rates: P 500 – P 1500 depending if it’s peak season or not.
Best Months to Visit: November to May
How to get there:
- I had tried two terminals to Baguio the Cubao and Pasay Terminal via Victory Liner. You can check out the schedule and other terminals to Baguio here.
Deluxe Bus of Victory Liner for P715 which will take 4 hours to Baguio with no stopovers since there is a comfort room inside.
Going to Baguio is now easy, unlike the previous decade since roads are not that good and it will take you around 8 hours to go there.
Please do share your experiences, new places you’ve discovered to check out in Baguio and even tips to enjoy the trip.
How many times have you been to Baguio?
Are you a stick to one, two-timer or like me, a Three Timer?
