Travel Record: Baguio 2015

10:31:00 PM

Since we figured that summer is just around the corner... Why not go to the coldest place in the Philippines? This calls for a trip to Baguio!

Some of my friends and newly met  left Manila last February 28 just for a quick break from thee polluted city of Manila. I haven't been out of Manila in a while since I have been really busy so its about time to just relax.

As soon as we arrived, all we talked about is to go that restaurant in Baguio where they shot the movie "That Thing Called Tadhana". My friends and I decide to walk after the driver dropped us off at Session Road. We wanted to feel like real wanderers so we used google map to find Cafe By The Ruins. It was such fail because we kept running around in circle for the past hour before we found the place just to find out that we went around that loop for like 5 times. (No exagerration) Hahaha!

Baguio Day 1

Cafe By The Ruins

The food and ambiance is just perfect! It was such a quiet place filled with ethnic interior, flowers and candles. The food is really good and we didn't even to spend that much. 

The following morning, we went to go around and finally see what Baguio has to offer after that sumptuous meal at Cafe By The Ruins the night before that.

Strawberry Farm

What better way to start the day than to munch on little heart shaped fruits. Yes, you guessed it right... we went to the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet just 30 mins away from Baguio City. You must not miss their strawberry taho or you'll be missing half of your life!

Bell Church

The Bell Church is located north of downtown Baguio along the road leading to La Trinidad so that's were we headed afterwards. Bell Church is Chinese Temple with beautifully landscaped gardens, Buddhism artifacts as well as some literature about China. 

Wright Park

Wright Park is a place full of full of pines, sunflowers and the rectangular body of water called "Pool of Pines" leading to The Mansion (another tourist spot in Baguio) A lot of people take pictures beside the native igorots or horses. For me, I specifically loved the feel of tall pine trees and ginormous sunflowers along the way.

Baguio Day 3

This is more like the shopping and roaming around day... Since its the peak of the Panagbenga Festival, we were not able to take photos whatsoever because of intense traffic and such. It was such a shame because we really wanted to watch the parade. I wasn't able to take much photos anymore at our last day but my OOTD. Hahaha!

 My overall Baguio experience was pretty good! Nothing can compare to cool weather, good food, new friends and new adventures that I experienced during this trip. I can't wait for more sweet escapes like this!
