This place should be in your list when visiting Baguio. Aside from the awesome view of the sunset from the West Philippine Sea, you can experience and learn Cordillera art from the resident artists in this place. Try to attend their art workshops and experience staying in a traditional Cordillera huts. Be sure to catch the Tam-Awan International Arts Festival... More

A small representational village built on the side of a mountain, with little room to swing a cat. Gives a glimpse of native life in the past, with a small gallery, art class area and native dancers, and lots and lots of steep steps leading up to the various huts and relaxation points. Good to visit.

I was expecting a village with sculptors...it was a garden instead. I like the painting they have in the cafe and 1 ifugao house model. It is a challenging hike for older people.

The Tam-awan Village is located at Pinsao Proper. Getting there is easy if you just ride the taxi but can also be reached via public transportation. There are jeeps plying the route. This is a model village of Ifugao houses in Baguio. The Foundation who built this wanted to show the people who haven't travelled to Cordillera region how the... More

get ready for some native igorot culture shock, coz this place will choke you and possibly in disbelief and somewhat disarray in finding out that some of our ancestors live the way of life before the spaniards came. just make sure you wear a good pair of "non-slippery" shoes, because otherwise, you will slip and slide.

It is a nice spot to visit bit it can get crowded at times. There are a lot of unique things to see and one gets to appreciate the Highland culture more.

A hub for local artists. My friend commissioned a sketch while taste the local brew at the cafe and trekked the path that winds around the village of traditional huts. I got my magnet from the souvenir shop. This was where I first saw some solar paintings and paintings using coffee. I got to taste a strawberry taho which the... More

Long trails to the top. Good for well fit and strong legs. Not safe for older inactive person. Need more rails to hang on and barriers to prevent accident. Not good for hyper active kids.
