Exercise and sight seeing can be done together made possible by this project of Shanum/Danum foundation. The place is a great escape from the nearly crowded city of Baguio. at the entrance you will be welcomed by our locals which will also guide you to discover the beauty of the Igorot cultures. At the end of the trip there is... More

I love this place... we behave like a child enjoying the little house by our old folks from Benguet. Myself and my husband made a wish in one of their Couple home..

We live literally 5 minutes from the village so one evening we've decided to go there. Aside from the tiny hut, you are literally hiking between tiny paths leading to nowhere really. We feel that the entrance fee wasn't worth it as there was nothing interesting in the place.

I used to love this place. Well, okay, until now, I guess. I love the atmosphere and the artistry it shares to the public. Not only that, the knowledge and history it imparts to each visitor. Sadly, however, they are not able to maintain it properly. Everytime I visit here, a not-so-good change is evident.

The Tam-Awan Village is an inspiration of the famous national artists BenCab or BenCabrera. The village has many ifugao houses were you can experienced the real natives life of Mt. Province. No electric fans.

I have to say, the last time I went here it was beautiful, to say the least. I loved what they were trying to do--preserving the culture and making it more accessible to tourists in Baguio, but when I went I was nothing but disappointed. I felt sorry that we went through the trouble of getting to the village, more... More

Baguio City is home to many artists, and Tam-Awan Village is one of the places where they showcase their work, and as I have heard, they sometimes convene. This place has more than an artsy vibe to it; it feels somewhat magical. Maybe it was the mountain fog, or perhaps it was the fact that the things you see here... More

I heard so much about Tam-Awan so we decided to go last January. It is far from the city and going there is tiring for the car we used then. You don't see much in the Village. I don't know if it is just me.. but I don't appreciate all those trails they have because as i said you don't... More

I liked the notion of having an artist village dedicated to the highlands culture. But, Tam-Awan was a bit of a disappointment as a tourist spot. 1) There were no leaflets available; 2) There are no real fantastic views from the view decks, don't go and get tired doing the climb as there is nothing to see. (wear rubber shoes... More

you get to trek up a path around the village but there aren't any signs or info available to provide info on the things you see around the place. There is also a lack of signs as to where the pathway leads. I even thought the pathway might lead all the way up the mountain. Good thing, it was a... More
