Me and my husband were there in 2007. We were so overwhelmed of the scenery and temperature and decided to walk for few minutes before heading to the hotel. In that 10-20 minutes walk, we were followed and finally surrounded by young (17-25 yrs old) mobster. They took our wallets and threatened us. It was traumatic as we are also Filipinos and get attacked in our own country. Yes, it was traumatic for me but still would love our children to feel what Baguio is (temperature) and to visit the strawberry farm etc.
I am 100% decided to take the kids by April next year but still worried about our safety.
Calm me down.
