Been here a few times, those were very good experiences but this one is disappointing. There used to be guides that would tour you around and talk about the stuffs there, but it didn't happen. We were just given maps and told to read the plaques. It was an easy trek, the paths have improved. At the cafe, the attendants... More

This is a small village of the original natives of Baguio. It felt more like a small park. We walked around, looked at a few artifacts, and then our tour was done. If your into culture and " indian style " artifacts then you should visit Tam-awan Village, if your not, then I would suggest skipping this place.

The paths were not maintained and made our tour of the village a very slippery one. The bathrooms were very dirty. It was an ok attraction to see but I would not go here again.

I have visited this some years back but had to return for a balikbayan friend's sake. Am happy to note that it has improved. We were lucky to have Jerwin, our tour guide for the day. He shared with us the Mountain Province culture, giving information, sampling us with music and taking very good pictures. We had very limited time... More

Even if it does commercial activities and is run like a business, one does not feel robbed because there is so much to engage in while inside the park. Though not for the faint-limbed and elderly, the trip through the park is a literal breath of fresh air in a very congested mountain city like Baguio. The place is a... More

I missed this place when we last visited Baguio, so when our tour guide cum taxi driver mentioned about Tam-Awan village, so we said yes we'd like to go. So there is an entrance fee of a very minimal amount. Once you get inside, you'll go around at your own risk, since some parts of the village are unsafe with... More

The concept of building a village with a Cordillera theme was extraordinary. Before entering the village you have to pay the Php50 entrance fee. The village was great and educational. Since I am a nature lover, I really love the ambiance of the place. There was even an ethnic dance performance near the entrance. The place was supposed to be... More

You can see here in Tam.awan the houses of the Old Cordillera. Entrance fee is Php50. Make sure you have the proper footwear. Paths are a bit slippery when wet. Expect narrow paths in which only one person can pass at a time.

I went here a couple of years ago and I remember vividly how beautiful this place is. Approximately 20 mins from the city center, you can take a cab to get here. You would be welcomed with different art activities. There are illustrators who could draw your portrait in about 15-30 minutes and you just have to donate some money... More
