at the Grotto in my previous Baguio trip almost 6 years ago

This is it! It is only 7 days to go before we head to the City of Pines + everyone is really beside ourselves with excitement. I have just made a checklist of what stuff to pack + bring to our trip + I am half-way through finishing our itinerary for our 3-day Baguio stay. I must tell you, I have only been to Baguio once + I traveled then with my teammates from work + this is the first time am doing it with the family so it really is rather exciting. Plus, we have not really gone on 3-day out-of-town trips before so everyone is really all psyched about this trip!

I’ve actually rummaged through some Baguio articles online tips on which places to visit in Baguio, as well as note their location + proximity to other popular tourist attractions in the city. Based on my research, here are the top 5 places in Baguio that we are definitely checking out:

  • Burnham Park ~ of course, no one visits + leaves Baguio without stopping by this famous park. I will make sure that we ride the boat in the lagoon + take as much photos of the little man outdoors
  • Mines View ParkΒ ~ what better way to see the rest of Baguio than in the Mines View Park summit. I will also remember to have our photos taken with the humongous St. Bernard + get someone to don the traditional Igorot clothing
  • Bencab Museum + Cafe Isabel ~ located in Tuba, Benguet, about 15 minutes away from the Baguio city proper, this museum + restaurant also tops our list of places to visit during our weekend getaway up north. Checking out famous artworks by Bencab himself will be a perfect part of our adventure. I won’t forget to try out the gastronomic treat that Cafe Isabel has to offer, too. A must-try: the carrot + ginger soup for the little man! πŸ˜‰
  • Strawberry Farm ~ we plan to visit there on the second day of our trip. We shall be picking strawberries, of course, + will be sure to munch some as we traverse the vast farm. I read somewhere that blue berries are sold here somewhere, too, so I will make sure to get some, as well!
  • Wright Park ~ horseback-riding is on my Baguio to-do list, so we are definitely stopping by this park, too. We’ve only tried a horse-drawn carriage before so I bet the little man will be thrilled at this new experience.

We will make sure to explore Session Road, too, asΒ I’ve only explored this famous Baguio road a tiny bit in my previous trip, so this time I will make sure we walk the entire stretch, + discover what it’s got to offer. Among places we’d like to check out here are Mt. Cloud Bookshops {we’re a bunch of book lovers, see!} + the Hill Station Restaurant {hopefully we can dine in without reservation, though} or anyone that has superb Amplifiers that will catch our fancy!

I will make sure to that we visit the Mansion, Baguio Cathedral, the Good Shepherd Convent, as well as the Baguio Capitol so that I can pay a visit to the local post office, too. Will be making a quick stop there to mail some Baguio postcards for myself + my other swap mates. Also, am looking for 5 postcard enthusiast who will be the lucky recipients of 5 Baguio postcards mailed from Baguio. Check out my Baguio Postcard Giveaway Post.
By the way, if you have other ideas of places that you think I ought to check out in Baguio, please feel free to leave them in a comment below. I will highly appreciate it. Thanks in advance + happy weekend! πŸ™‚

    Mansion House (classic tourist destination!), Rito’s steak and restaurant along Marcos Highway (dubbed as the best bulalo place in baguio) and there’s Cafe by the Ruins. I’ll try to remember the other places we’ve visited. If you’re into coffee, visit the Starbucks branch at Camp John Hay. πŸ˜€

      Mansion house is on my list, too, as well as Cafe by the Ruins. We will try to check out Rito’s, too. I’ve been to Camp John Hay, but it was only my friends who were completing their Starbucks stickers, who went to check out Starbucks there! Thanks for the suggestions, Kat! + good luck! πŸ˜‰
