“Nice trekking trail, but no hill tribe people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Tam-Awan Village is a nice little village just out side Baguio. There is a nice trekking trail with nice little resting stops along the trial. We expected to see hill tribe people living in the village, but there is only one guy that look like hill tribe man at the souvenir shop. So you go there for cultural experience, you will be dispointed.

“Plus and Minus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I think this is a nice venue for photographers. I liked the authentic Ifugao houses that were transported there for public viewing, since I'm not sure if I'll ever get to an Ifugao village in my lifetime to see one.

A challenge here was the eco trail. It was exciting but a bit dangerous at the same time. The trail was slippery and does not have enough safety barrier against the hill side. I worried about the kids I saw there. I don't recommend taking the trail if you have kids with you.

“Empty; but a good look at Ifugao architecture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is not a living museum. It's a bunch of Ifugao structures scattered over a hill, with a nice gift shop. It's cool to see the building, but not much else is going on. If you want to see a cultural show, do crafts, or wear traditional clothing you have to pay a lot extra. Worth the trip if not for the views from the village.

“Run down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Although this attraction had quite a lot of visitors - 95 per cent Filipino or Filipino descent 'balikbayans' (holidaying emigrants) - the place had a general rundown look. It has numerous stairs built into the rock so the disabled could not see it.

Admittance is P50 for adults, but less for seniors and students.

There is a cafe, some tribal huts and maybe some interpretive talks but I was not there for the latter. Parking availability is minimal.
