Info about Baguio

57 km2

Baguio is situated amidst the mountainous region of Cordillera approximately 250 kilometres north of Manila, in the Province of Benguet.
The city is one of the few places in the Philippines blessed with a cool climate.
On average, Baguio is at least eight degrees cooler than any place in the lowlands. No surprise then that Baguio is considered the "summer capital" of the country.
In the early 19th century the Spaniards, during their long occupation of the area, were able to establish order, built churches and schools, made trails and introduced coffee.
The arrival of the Americans at the beginning of 1900 spurred development in Baguio. Their best administrators and teachers were fervent boosters and promoters: Worcester, Wright, Forbes, Pack, Barrows, Eckman and others who together with Filipinos committed to make the place heaven.
The events of the Second World War stalled all development, leaving Baguio in total devastation. However, the war changed course and on September 3, 1945, General Yamashita formally surrendered to the Americans and the city immediately set to the task of rehabilitation.
Baguio today is a wonderful and modern city, performing a multiplicity of roles, as an educational, trade, tourism and administrative centre.

Overall Guide : This charming city is full of many different attractions and certainly worth a visit if you are in Philippines. Starting with Burnham Park, the traditional venue of the city's numerous festivities and the oldest of all Baguio parks. ... more Baguio Cathedral, one of the familiar landmarks in Baguio. Botanical Garden, also called the Igorot village, it features native hut typical of Cordilleras architecture. Mines View Park, appropriately named for its breathtaking view of mountain ranges and Baguio's "mineral bowl" where gold, silver and other curio items. Kennon Road, the shortest and the most scenic highway linking Baguio and the lowlands. The imposing and impressive Baguio Mansion House, which has housed a long list of Filipino presidents and American governor-generals. This is only a small list of the beauties of the city: many others are waiting for you if you decide to spend some time in Baguio.

Overall Guide : I was born and raised in Baguio City. I never knew how lucky we are with the climate that we have until I stayed in Manila for some time. There are many places to visit in Baguio anytime. For your... more accommodation, there are lots of transients if you are working on a budget. Try checking-out on sulit.com, there are also people offering a place to stay as you get off the bus at Vitory Liner bus station. You can start your day by visiting parks such as the Wright Park where you can do horse-back-riding. If you feel like taking a stroll, Burnham Park is old but they tried many times to do some improvements, it is still a landmark located right in the central business district.At night, you can unwind at some bars located at Session Road or places nearby. It is very convenient and inexpensive to go around the city with a cab available 24/7. There is also a night market open from 9PM-11PM along Harrison Road.
Not to be missed Strawberry farm at La Trinidad (6km. away from Baguio CBD)

Overall Guide : Situated amidst the mountainous region of Cordillera, 1,500 meters above the sea, 250 kilometers north of Manila, Baguio City is one of the few place in the Philippines blessed with a cool climate. On average, Baguio is at least eight... more degrees cooler than any place in the lowlands. Not surprisingly, Baguio has become the "summer capital" of the country. It is gifted with a variety of cultural, historical and scenic attractions which make it an important and interesting destiantion. As early as March, tourists and locals take the six-hour trek up the zigzagging Kennon Road. Within a mile of the city, the sweet scent of pine trees and flowers already permeate the air.

Overall Guide : During peak season, it is heavy traffic, congested, and the worst thing is the smoke belching FX Taxis, Jeepneys, dirty Burnham Parks and no parking intended for tourist.
