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

A small village with native houses of the Igorot people. Some houses exhibit hand made art works mostly paintings. When we visit Tam-Awan, suddenly it rains hard so we stop and take our lunch in their coffee shop. A native hot coffee with fried rice and small fish called Tawilis made my day. This place adds to the attraction of... More

Next to Camp John Hay, this is the only public place perhaps that still has the touch of what Baguio used to be. The added bonus are the paintings and art works on display and for sale. The snacks they serve are also not that bad. Souvenirs items from Baguio are also best bought here. The craftmanship and uniqueness is... More

Tam-awan Village gives you a brief history about Kalinga and Ifugao. Explore different arts and paintings made by the katutubo. You should go here when the weather is good, not raining, because the paths maybe slippery. We were disappointed when we reached the top because we were expecting for more. Also, there is a sketch artist inside where you can... More
