If you want to get a glimpse of the culture, tradition and art of Cordillera with a bit of an adventure on the side, you must visit Tam-awan Village. This artists village is just 2 kilometers from the Baguio City town and it is strategically located on the side of a steep hill, pay an affordable entrance fee and you... More

We visited Tam-Awan while in Baguio City. Being Native American, I am always interested with other Native Cultures. T-A was a neat little place. I loved the hiking; just be careful of the wet conditions. I only wished there were more guides to explain the culture; only people this day were at the first set of huts. By the gift... More

Tam-Awan Village is a haven for art lovers. The place offers a quaint and a very 'Benguet-kind' of atmosphere. Art pieces and art works abound. We stayed overnight and slept in an authentic Ifugao Hut. It's not for everyone, though. Remember, it is a hut so toilet and bath are separate outside and to have to go for toilet duties... More

This was our first stop during a tour with my family. It was like a 15-minute drive from the city center. If you're planning to visit this place I advice that you should take a private ride with you as I did not see any public vehicle passing by at this location. The entrance fee was reasonably cheap. Be prepared... More

Quaint little art village. You have to climb a lot of steps and walk through a trail. Very interesting set-up. Unfortunately, all the native houses are locked so you can't see what it would be like to live in. I was disappointed that the gallery didn't have a lot of art works on display.

I loved Tam-Awan but I do so wish they'd boost up on the artist part. It was not well maintained and the trail isn't one for those with weak legs.

The experience in visiting Tam-Awan Village was a challenge. It was quite difficult climbing with wet rock, loose clay/soil and unstable railings. But my kids enjoyed the trek around the mountain and learning about Ifugao culture. And the food at the cafe was delicious !

Besides native-style huts, there's nothing else to see here. You however get to climb the mountain which is fun for the adventure-seekers.

Great experience to learn about the native Igorot people history. The tradition lives on, great displays in the museum, great authentic food. The art displays is amazing. Thank you.

One of the best place to visit in Benguet is the Tam-Awan Village. The place is quite far but if you are adventurous and willing to travel then this one is for you. They have entrance fee of 10 pesos. The stone stairs are quite stiff but when you reach any stop-overs you will be amazed on how they built... More
