BAGUIO CITY AND ITS TOURIST SPOTS + HOTELS

Here’s your Baguio City Travel Guide. This post covers tourist spots, how to get to the place with schedules of buses, a list of  Hotels, and suggested travel itinerary.

ABOUT BAGUIO CITY

Thousands upon thousands of people ascend the sometimes treachery roads that lead to the esteemed Summer Capital of the Philippines – arguably, a place amongst the clouds, Baguio City – a place that never seems to grow old, a place that never ceases to amaze people with its evolving charms and its timeless presence.

Originally built to be a year-round getaway for ex-pat Americans who wished to experience a colder clime in the tropical heat, the place quickly became such a destination that the location had to continuously reinvent itself while still maintaining its identity. The Baguio City has since become a haven for so many people – everywhere you look, there’s something for everyone. Whether it is your bohemian soul craving for the arts, or your inner history buff looking to satisfy its desire for knowledge or your inner adventurer looking for something new to experience, Baguio has so much to offer for you.

Travel Up

The travel up to the place is an adventure in itself, passing such sights that nature endowed upon the landscape. Breathtaking terrain, jaw-dropping cliffs and ravines, and the occasional fog descending upon your means of conveyance add to the charm. Even before you set foot on the city’s limits, you feel the excitement and the vibe that seems to permeate the atmosphere. And once you get to the terminal or to your lodging house, you would surely get blasted by the vibrant sense of the city, electrifying you to your roots.

A haven for artists

Those who are artsy would find the city’s streets a haven for their passion. Visual artists would find their satisfaction touring the galleries in and around the city. Musical artists would feel the call of the arts among the various local hangouts and watering holes that dot the cityscape. The place is renowned for its charm for artists of all mediums. You certainly feel the electricity and the artistic presence cannot be denied.

Baguio City is a place for spiritual rejuvenation

Those who are inclined to a spiritual retreat and rejuvenation would find such havens among the many temples, churches, and convents that can be found in Baguio City. What’s better is that each place has a signature food souvenir that can be had. Probably the most famous are the products of the Good Shepherd Sisters whose marmalades, lenguas and ube products are, excuse the language, absolutely to die for. Communing with the Almighty can be had almost everywhere because you will get a sense of how much bounty He has bestowed upon the city and its residents.

 Souvenirs [ Baguio City Tourist Spots | Travel Guide + Baguio City Hotels  ]

Exciting shopping and gastronomic experiences

And of course, bargain hunters would have a grand time in its famed ukay-ukay boulevard – countless stalls offering a bargain and vintage clothing that can complete your wardrobe or simply separate you from the rest of the pack. Such wonderful finds can be had for such low and affordable prices; you wouldn’t mind the time at all. Sifting and sorting through piles and stacks of clothes and getting that absolute steal of a jacket or that one-of-a-kind pair of boots is simply quite satisfying.

Foodies will also have a good time sampling the local fare. From native local fare (whose recipes are a closely-guarded secret) to various fusion dishes, your taste buds would surely explode with such tasty delights. Add to the fact that the local diners and watering holes have their own gimmicks going on, and you would have a hard time picking where to go. You can go artsy; you can go vintage, you can go chic – the choices are endless.

Baguio City Markets

A trip to the markets of Baguio would yield a lot of souvenirs and unique products that carry the trademark vibrancy of the place. From the ubiquitous gag gifts (who can un-see the surprise of the famed Barrel Man? Or the phallic ashtrays that can be had from the handicraft stores?), to woven Ifugao masterpieces to statues and accessories that celebrate the history and culture of the Cordilleras, you would have your fill.

Time and again, the city of pines reinvents itself, adding layers upon layers to its core, enriching the offerings, strengthening the already deep connections to our national identity, making itself a testament to our resilient nature as Filipinos, cognizant of the past, but always with an eye for the present and a hankering for the promise of the future.

Things to do in Baguio City  | Tourist Spots

A visit to the place would not be complete without the requisite visit to Burnham Park – a central figure in the city’s landscape. Take a stroll along the paths and breathe the cool air, and admire the number of people admiring the sights. Take a boat and experience the lake smack in the center or test your wits against hustler chess players who seem to be everywhere in the park. Of course, the taho vendor would be calling your attention, and you would simply have to have a taste of a unique Baguio City staple – strawberry taho – with real strawberry bits, mind you – that is quite affordable and intensely satisfying.

Panagbenga Festival is one of the grandest and most colorful festivals in the country. It is held every February until the first week of March.
