Baguio City Philippines - Provides list of hotel accommodations in economy, standard and deluxe category plus leisure, activities and map of Baguio City.
One of the cleanest and greenest cities in the country, Baguio is made for sightseeing. And for strolls and boat rides and
gentle trots around the park. And for golf. Kennon Road, completed
in 1905, opened Baguio to tourism. The zigzagging path previews
the scenic highlights of the city. Along the 32-kilometer highway
are the Bridal Veil and Colorado waterfalls.
Synonymous with Baguio is Burnham Park. Located in the heart of
the city, the park's features include a man-made lagoon ideal for
boat rides, a skating rink, an athletic field and stadium, basketball
and tennis courts, a biking zone, tree-and-flower lined promenades,
and a plant market.
A popular golfing destination, the city takes pride in its Baguio
Country Club and Camp John Hay. What used to be the rest-and-recreation
base of American military personnel, the Camp is being transformed
into a world-class resort and is also Baguio's biggest pine tree
conservation area. Its newly refurbished 18-hole golf course rivals
that of the Country Club which has pretty garden-patched cottages
surrounding its fairways.
Ornate iron gates open to the Mansion House, the official summer
residence of Philippine presidents. It offers tourists with great
photo opportunities with its rectangular reflecting pool along a
tree-lined walkway. It also houses a museum of presidential memorabilia.
Near the Mansion House is Wright Park where neophyte riders can
trot around an oval track guided by trainers who lead horses with
a hand-held leash. At the Mines View Park, tourists can have a panoramic
view of the old mines of Benguet. At the park entrance is a flea
market for souvenir items.
Sitting on top of a hill in Upper Session Road is the twin-spire
Baguio Cathedral, a city landmark. Another pilgrimage site is the
Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes which sits on top of Dominican Hill.
Devotees prefer to climb the 252-step ascent than drive through
a winding road to reach the shrine. Bell Church holds a religious
service of mixed Buddhist, Taoist, Confucian and Christian dogmas
but tourists come here to have their fortunes told.
Located on an elevated pine-forested ground is the Philippine Military
Academy, the country's foremost military learning institution. Its
Saturday morning Parade in Review by cadets in full regalia never
fails to attract visitors. Also within campus is a Military Museum.
A cultural haven established by noted Baguio artist BenCab, Tam-awan
Village recreates a typical ethnic village in the Cordilleras with
authentic tribal homes uprooted from their original locations and
re-set on similar terrain. There is also an art gallery-cum-coffee
