Baguio, Philippines

(Banaue-Sagada-Baguio trip Part 2) Annnnnnd we reached Baguio! The last time I was in Baguio I was still a wee child, all I remember is buying a puppet at Burnham Park, riding the boats, and the markets. Hahaha!

We had checked in at Pine Breeze Cottages around 4 or 5 in the afternoon so we decided to head over to the Strawberry Fields near La Trinidad. I love love love strawberries so I knew we had to stop by. Of course the strawberries at the market are cheaper, as my dad said, “we’re after the experience.”

My all time comfort food/dessert: ICE-CREAM. Feed me ice-cream and I’ll love you forever 😛

I didn’t get any photos but before the day ended we went to Burnham park. It improved a lot from what I remember from it so yay for that. My brother and I rode bikes for an hour! Hahaha. It was really refreshing, relaxing, and fun! I must say though it is quite dangerous. I saw about three people crash into other bikes, one of them was a three wheeler with children in it that fell over (yikes! no one was hurt though). Maybe they could have designated areas for children and experts.  All in all good fun for the whole fam! Also there are a lot of places to eat so you’ll never get hungry.

Next day, Baguio Botanical Gardens. In my photos it might not look so bad, but don’t bother going. Don’t waste your time, it’s run down and there’s really nothing to see. Not a wide variety of flowers or plants, just plain nothing. You’re better off at Camp John Hay or Mines View (which we didn’t get to visit).

Some tips for travel:

  • Know what kind of activities you’ll be doing so you’ll know what to bring (ie. sneakers, raincoats)
  • If you have limited time, plan plan plan!
