Note: This is a super duper late blog post about Baguio.
It’s been weeks since my friend and I went there. Some Baguio-goers would follow the usual Baguio itinerary. What we did was so simple. We just visited the museums and allowed ourselves to immerse with so many artworks.
Ben Cab Museum
Museums are gift of humanity to the world. I would never skip any museum in every place that I visit. Hehe. Here are some of my favorite art works from Ben Cab.
We rode a taxi from Ben Cab Museum going to Baguio Museum. That cost us 120PHP I think. Unfortunately, Baguio Museum was being renovated so there were only few pieces for exhibit shown when we went there.
Baguio Food Trip
After visiting some museums, we did our personal errands like eating lunch, strolling around the Burnham Park, and eating merienda. At 2:00PM, we went to our hotel and leave our bags there. We napped for a while, then went out again to eat Visco’s cake!!!
Here are some pictures taken at Burnham Park.
Lastly, we also visited Baguio Cathedral. Here’s what you can see inside.
Baguio Night Market
We looked forward to visiting Baguio Night Market. Here are some photos we took there. This is my favorite part of the day btw! 🙂
These photos are taken at the streets.
Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet
Of course, we cannot skip Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet. You can pick strawberries for 400PHP and up. It depends.
Here’s an up-close look at freshly picked strawberry.
Mines View Park
Okay. We went here because we bought pasalubong at The Good Shepherd’s Convent. Here are some of the flowers we saw at Mines View Park.
Mt. Cloud Book Shop
This bookshop is one taxi away from Mine’s View Park. Well, everything is accessible with taxis! Haha. Mt. Cloud Book Shop is an indie book store that sells indie and some traditionally published books. I believe, they are friendly to new authors. Don’t skip this place in your Baguio Itinerary! 🙂
There are really lots of places to visit in Baguio. You can enjoy Baguio in weekend as long as you could prioritise the places you wanted to visit. Hehe. For us, it’s mostly museum, food, and of course, church.
