A city on the mountain top – Baguio
QUEZON City, Philippines (Eagle News Service, May 25) – What a started as a summer vacation spot for the Americans during their 40-year rule over the Philippines, Baguio City has grown into one of the most popular metropolises in the Philippines.
There’s much to do in the summer capital of the Philippines. Visit the usual tourist spots of Burnham Park, Camp John Hay and Mines View Park and hang-out and take in the city’s vibe.
Another must-visit site in Baguio is the BenCab Gallery and Museum. Established by National Artist Ben Cabrera, the museum draws many visitors every year. View the thought-provoking artworks with the incredible Baguio panorama serving as the backdrop
Although Baguio has embraced the 21st century, it has managed to preserve its unique cultural heritage. In Baguio, one can interact with members of the native Cordillera tribes and learn a thing or two about the indigenous culture. You can also buy the perfect souvenir from many stores selling local arts and crafts.
Of course, a day is not enough to spend in this town, so be sure to keep your schedule open once you visit Baguio City.
