Baguio: The City of Pines (Part 1)

December is the city's peak season because of the really nice and cold weather. Tourists flock around the famous landmarks, restaurants and parks all over the city. Since my parents were on their holiday break, we also decided to go to Baguio too and see for ourselves what this city can offer.

I did the itinerary myself with the help of various blogs and websites. And since I can't describe how beautiful the city is, here are the photos from our trip:

DAY 1: MORNING

OUR LADY OF ATONEMENT CATHEDRAL/ BAGUIO CATHEDRAL

MINES VIEW PARK
I found this place pretty crowded that time, there really was a LOT of people. But the view was really beautiful, everyone just had to visit this place if you're in Baguio.

THE MANSION

WRIGHT PARK
Wright Park is where you can go for a horseback riding though I wasn't able to take photos of that area. You can just walk from The Mansion to Wright Park. We also tried Strawberry taho here! It was so good (for me) haha but my brother thinks it's too sweet.

DAY 1: AFTERNOON

LOURDES GROTTO
Lourdes Grotto is a 252-steps Catholic Shrine in Baguio City. Near the top, you can light up candles and say your prayers and when you finally reach the "peak", you'll see our Lady of Lourdes' image.

DIPLOMAT HOTEL RUINS
If I'm not mistaken, this was used by the Dominican priests before.

Again, I wasn't to take much photos but we have a video compilation of our trip that I'll post on part 2 plus the places we visited on the next day!

  1. Looks like a colorful January! You know, I have always been interested in visiting the Philippines. How do you pronounce the name of this city, by the way? :) x

    1. Hi there Tee, Philippines has so much to offer for everyone! You simply pronounce Baguio as "bag-yo" 😄
