this is near La Trinidad Strawberry farm,I really like the dragon symbols & the ringing of the bells, witnessed the lion & dragon dance rehearsals for the Lunar year activity..best days to visit Saturday & Sunday you can explore the highest area,be respectful & follow the dos & don'ts when visiting this Chinese temple.

Try a visit in the morning when crowds are thinner. It is worth at least one visit. The touristy atmosphere when the noisy crowds with their gadgets descend on the place is a put-off.

I knew when I asked my husband to visit Bell Church that it was Chinese but I wasn't really expecting what we saw. Bell Church is a beautifully peaceful place. Its a bit outside of Baguio in La Trinidad- only a few kilometers and definitely worth the visit.

Bell Church is actually a Chinese church, on the hill, so it is interesting. Everything looks Chinese - right from the arches - and you can easily confuse it for a Buddhist Chinese temple. It was ok from this point of view - I expected the views to be good, but all we could see was lots of clustered tin... More

One of the tourist spots to go to when you're looking for a peace and quiet place to reflect. Though this is a known place for Buddhist, anyone can go here and a stop by before going to other places in Benguet. When you're bringing kids with you, make sure to take turns with adults as they don't allow kids... More

Anyway, Bell church was established during the 50's at km 5 La trinidad, Benguet. There were 8 founders, all from China. When their organization became bigger, they purchased that lot in Km3 where the current... More

It was very easy to find for first timers like us. I've visited Baguio for the third time but never had the chance to see the Bell Church. It was only during last summer that I made sure to include this place in our itinerary. The place was maintained and really clean. You can also visit it without paying any... More
