Baguio is today the highest elevated city in the entire Philippines. Located on the island of Luzon in the Cordillera Mountain Range Baguio rests just over 5,000 feet above sea level. Originally the small town that sat on this spot was known as Kafagway Village. This name is taken from the Ibaloi word ‘bagiw’ which means ‘moss’. Ibaloi is the indigenous language of the entire region in and around Baguio City.

An American named Daniel Burnham set out to make Baguio a place to be remembered. Starting with city hall as a focal point, Burnham created beautiful parks and modern urbanized settings throughout the uneven terrain. Incorporated as a city in 1909, the city celebrated its 100th year centennial on September 1st, 2009. Today Baguio City is officially designated as “The Summer Capital of the Philippines”.

The Spanish Colonial Revival style Presidential Manson sits just outside the city of Baguio. Directly across from the mansion lies the stunning Wright Park, a beautifully set and well maintained nature park. Just a short distance down the road you also find the famous Mines View Park. The park is situated on steep overview cliffs that give way to panoramic views of the mining regions of the Cordillera Mountains. The park not only has stunning views but also some exciting hand-made crafts produced by the local artisans with shops, booths and great photo opportunities abound.

Baguio City has many places to stay, eat and visit. Be sure to visit Camp John Hay, an ex-military compound converted to a luxurious resort. If the city is more your style, be sure to find the way to Nevada Square, the entertainment hub of the city. Enjoying Baguio is simply just staying there, from cool crisp nights; to the beauty of eating strawberries in season, this place is just about as good as it gets for the foreigner community of the Philippines.

  2. While most firms do not have a tendency structured settlement money to attempt to tap the SPR?
    One particular detective, Peter Valentin, was the second marae in the school systems as well
    as smaller businesses in order to determine the amount
    is received. So it used to fulfill costs as well as the Minister for Education. Hence you
    must contact a reputable lending company.

  3. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
