Baguio is one of my favorite places. I have only been there twice but both are such great experiences, I cannot wait to go back. Even my little one is raving about our adventure and has been asking when we are coming back. You can read about our travel adventure here.
Baguio is a top choice among Filipino travelers because of the cold weather. It is a welcome break from the usually hot and humid city weather, especially in the scorching summer heat! Apart from the cool temperature, you will never run out of awesome things to do, beautiful places to see, and delicious dishes to try while you are up north. Among my top must-try Baguio activities include horseback riding, biking and playing at the park while sampling the local street food, delectable vegetable dishes at Oh My Gulay, strawberry picking at the Strawberry Farm, and a whole lot more!
A trip to Baguio is not just a welcome break from our daily grind, but it is also one great sensory experience, a delight to our senses. The lush greenery at the parks offers a respite for our otherwise overworked eyes, the local cuisine is a feast for any traveler’s palate, the fascinating clouds that hang low a delectable and welcome change.
I have been wanting to go back to Baguio for a while now but haven’t had the chance to do so. While I plot for yet another Baguio itinerary, I tried looking for Baguio budget accommodations using Traveloka App and here’s what I came up with:

Baguio is probably one my most favorite places here in the Philippines, I have only been there once + I fell head-over-heels in love with it. It will really be ideal if I live there. I love the weather, I love the people, + most of all I love the veggies + the strawberries! 😉
I went there, together with my teammate December of 2006, we’ve stayed for 2 days if I remember it clearly. We did not get the chance to see most of the place, though, as it was raining a lot most days (there was actually a typhoon around that time!). It was really freezing cold, but I just love the weather! It is perfect for just lazily chatting with your good friends + catching up on the latest buzz. + most of all, the weather is just perfect to whet once appetite and go out + sample what Baguio cuisine has to offer. Now, no amount of rain can stop us from going out + eating! We had our first meal at those eateries near Session Road which sells barbeques!

We’ve also managed to visit SM Baguio + go to the market to buy some souvenirs + stuffs. We also did not forget to swing by the series of Ukay-ukay stores in downtown. I was able to buy a knitted, turtleneck long-sleeved top + a purple jacket (or is it a windbreaker) for Jared’s dad. We also stopped by grotto + the butterfly farm, + bought some knitted stuffs from Mine’s View Park, too!
If given the chance, I’d definitely love to go back there. I want to go to the Strawberry Farm + visit the place that sells those yummy Ube jams, too! Or maybe we can venture farther + pay a visit to Sagada as well (oh well, that probably has to be in a separate post altogether!)
