“Tam-Awan Village desecrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Except for the View Deck 2 at the uppermost part of the Village (that does not need any maintenance), the entire place is worn out, unkept and dirty. Most tourists visit the place for the BenCab gallery and the different art media.

My hubby and my son stayed mostly at the upper view deck to enjoy the cool breeze of Baguio and the sunlit lush green mountain slopes ( a little of what's left in Baguio).

The Cordilleran abodes were mostly worn out, the trails going up were not safe anymore. Most parts are slippery and the bamboo railings were old and broken.Trash everywhere while some visitors desecrate the area by bringing additional trash. It could be a good attraction if the caretakers care enough to clean the place.It's an insult to BenCab and his art.

Over-all, nothing significant except for the cool breeze at the Upper Deck 2. The most exciting part is the ascent to the Dream Catcher area and Upper View Deck.
Entrance Fee is Php50 for adults and Php30 for students.

“Get a sense of Tribal life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

If you want to learn the old tribal life of the Igorot's, you go to this sort of park. Tribe style old house exists and a small museum too. Lovely place for Tribal research and study.

“Nice tranquil place, good choice of souvenirs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

I was appalled at the pollution and general chaos in Baguio, and did not stay in town as long as planned. This village was my only glimpse of the life style of the Cordillera people, and it mad a pleasant escape from the rest of town.it's a nice place to have some brewed coffee and buy some souvenirs.

“Exotic place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

We visited Tam-Awan Village in Pinsao area last 2009. It was a great place if you love being one with nature. The place gives you the history of the early tribes that lived in the Cordillera area. When you visit the place, be respectful of the place and whatever is shown there.
I recommend that the ones that will visit this place request for a tour guide in order to further understand why the place was preserved like that.
