Top areas in Baguio
The City of Baguio is an inland hill station on the island of Luzon in the Phillipines. Set in the Cordillera Mountains, Baguio has been a favorite hot-season escape for more than a century. Budget travelers are the biggest draw here, but the fresh air and cooler temperatures at 5,000 feet above sea level can appeal to all. Most travelers arrive via Loakan Airport from Manila. Buses from the city arrive in about six hours.
Camp John Hay is one of the city’s most interesting attractions. The camp was once the recreation center for the US Air Force during World War II as well as the site of the Japanese surrender. Today it serves as a resort and golf course. A similar recreation center would be Tam-awan village which looks at the lives of the area’s original inhabitants. Bell Church is where a fusion of Eastern and Western faiths are observed and is a recommended site to visit.
Baguio is also a university town, meaning there are plenty of bars and dance clubs as well as crowds of younger Filipinos. The commercial outpost has an SM Mall and a host of restaurants, including popular fast food joints and local eateries.
