Visit Baguio - Best of Baguio

Not for its ambrosial Ube jam or the warm, English-speaking Igorots. Not even for the glorious pine trees that hug the city or the smiling sunflowers that romance the hills, Baguio is most revered for its unique personality and its youthful chutzpah. We’re not sure which of these unique qualities will steal your heart, but know that Baguio will stay in a cozy corner of your memories forever. On the face of it, Baguio seems to be leaving behind its hill station demeanor in the attempt of catching up as a bustling metropolis. But the traffic snarls and concretization haven’t been able to take away its charm as a gleeful university town.

Your trip to Baguio won’t be complete without a visit to its imposing Cathedral or even the multicolored Tam Awan Village. You can even tour the Philippine Military Academy to experience first-hand the valorous journey of an ordinary Filipino’s transformation to an honorable army cadet. Take a break at the lush green Burnham Park with your friends and family or if you’re up for a little adventure, head out hiking on one of the magnificent hills surrounding the city. Travel to Baguio to feel like a part of a metamorphosis; witness a fledgling spread its wings and get ready to make a mark on the world.
