Last March, I went to Baguio to attend a seminar of our client. I only visited the Session Road because we went to Sagada the following day. This November, I went up again to attend a baptism of my hubby’s childhood friend. It coincided with Bonifacio Holiday and my sister’s wedding anniversary, so my family went along as well.
Going to Baguio from Manila is now easy especially if you have your private vehicle. Thanks to NLEX-SCTEX-TPLEX, travel time is only 5 hours. We left Quezon City around 5:30 and arrived in Baguio past 10am so we got to rest for a while and had lunch first before roaming around Baguio.
The Mansion – located in Leonard Wood Road, it was built in 1908 to house the US governor and generals. Today, it is where every President of the Philippines stays every time they visit Baguio.
Wright Park – located across The Mansion and known for its man-made pond called “Pool of Pines”. Here is where visitors can avail horseback riding for a certain fee.
Mines View Park – located 4 km from the city proper where you can see the panoramic view of Benguet province. You can also have your picture taken wearing traditional costumes and souvenirs are plenty here compared with other tourist spots around Baguio.
Burnham Park – located at the city proper and the most well-known tourist spot in Baguio. Aside from it is where provincial events are usually held, there are a lot of activities visitors can do like picnic, strolling, biking and boating.
And your trip to Baguio would not be complete without eating fresh fruit and veggies 🙂
