We actually entered Pink Sisters on our GPS, but were accidentally lead to this destination. We never regretted it though. We have all been to Baguio a number of times, but never have we ever visited this place. The view is spectacular. The history behind ruins is also an interesting tidbit. Moreover, not a lot of people know about this... More
