Cold weather. Pine Trees. Strawberries. Zero visibility. Yes, that’s Baguio. Located in the province of Benguet, situated the summer capital of the Philippines. I’m so excited!

Strawberries in Baguio

Accommodation:  Where to stay in Baguio?

We arrive in Baguio late in the afternoon coming from Vigan.The roads were covered with thick fog, as in zero visibility as we pass by but it was fun. Sorry I really had fun watching the fog. We didn’t have a hotel reservation when we got there but luckily we found this good man, offering us his Condo unit good for 4 person with kitchen and bathroom just across Burnham Park only for.. sorry I forgot T_T There are a lot of Condo units and transient houses that are ready to accommodate first time travelers in Baguio like us. All you have to do is ask around and prepare your bargaining skills. So don’t you worry! 🙂

We began our tour the next morning and chartered a regular taxi to take us to the must-see tourist spots in Baguio. But before we explore Baguio’s beauty, we had to try first the ever famous Strawberry Taho. Only 15 pesos(last 2012) per cup. SO WORTH IT. YOU SHOULD TRY IT.
