What is it like up in Baguio City, Philippines? A First-Timers Guide

Baguio City tops the list of the wonderful places to visit in Asia. Pinoys and worldwide travelers alike includes Baguio in their top priority of the places to visit in the Philippines. Baguio became even more popular to travelers abroad after it was being blogged by many US, Canadian, and UK bloggers.

Because of Baguio’s popularity to travelers, tour agencies in the Philippines and abroad both enhanced their tour plans to this beautiful city in the northern Luzon island. But if you are more interested in an adventure travel just like our team, there are so many options to add to your DIY Baguio travel.

Because of the city’s high elevation, the locals enjoy mild to cold climate all year round. Hence, is the name “The Summer Capital of the Philippines”. Because the temperature in the city is significantly lower than on other parts of the country, many tourists tend to visit Baguio especially during the hot summer months. Our team, however, decided to visit Baguio city in December of 2019 to spend the New Year’s Eve there.

To Baguio from Pampanga took us only 3 hours, thanks to Waze. We arrived at the transient house at 2 in the afternoon. This is the transient house we rented for no more than P5000 for a night stay for 6 pax.
