Let's explore Baguio City once more!

Baguio has always been one of the top destinations in the Philippines. Because of its chilly temperature, pine-dominated landscapes, and overall romantic atmosphere, this mountain city has attracted tourists especially in summer and even on holidays.

While the capital and big cities of Metro Manila and other lowlands hit scorching temperatures during the dry season, the weather here is relatively cold, making it one of the top choices for a staycation in the Philippines among locals.

If you're coming from the city, you can easily rent a car in Manila so you can go on Baguio tours. There are also many options when it comes to hotels in Baguio City, so you won't have a hard time finding one that suits your needs.
