December 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Baguio, is known as the Summer Capital of the country because of its cool climate and is also one of the most famous cities in the Philippines. It is highly urbanized city located in the province of Benguet in northern Luzon. For most travellers, Baguio serves as the primary gateway to backpacker bliss up north in Sagada, Banaue and Kalinga.

Burnham Park, Botanical Garden, Camp John Hay and Mines View Park are the most common places the tourists normally hangout. But you can also visit Tam-Awan Village where you can see replicas of native cogon-thatched homes and get a chance to meet a local artists. 

If you are an adventurer and you want to climb mountain on top of the mountains, then you can try Mount Santo Tomas located in Tuba, Benguet some 2,260m (7,410ft) above sea level, good for sight-seeing but don't forget to bring your warm suits and even sun protection. This place is now becoming popular to locals because it is the shooting location of the ABS-CBN teleserye "Forevermore", where Sitio Pungayan or the famous La Presa (fictional name in the series) is located.
