The “Summer Capital of the Philippines” on the Cordillera mountain range offers pleasant home rentals from luxury log cabin privacy in a gated community to comfortable town home comfort. Complete amenities include tasteful furnishings, fully-equipped kitchens, flat-screen televisions and internet access. Traditional hotel stays simply can’t compare with the space, comfort and amenities you and your family will enjoy in your own holiday rental.
Golfers have two excellent choices in Baguio’s mountain atmosphere - the Baguio Country Club – a par 61, 18-hole club at 5,000 feet sea level - and the Jack Nicklaus-designed Camp John Hay Golf Club. The kids will enjoy horseback riding in Wright Park and visiting Camp John Hay, formerly the R&R site for American military. Definitely plan a day of fun at the camp for horseback riding, picnic areas, dining, shopping and loads of children’s activities – rappelling, mini golf, hiking, playgrounds and more. For more family fun, take a jeepney ride to visit the strawberry fields and pick all the fruit you want.
Session Road is the liveliest part of Baguio, where shopping and dining are the mainstay activities. At the lower end of the road, Bagio City Market offers everything from flowers and meat to handicrafts – totes, baskets and the famous “walis tambo” brooms. Be sure to pick up some creamy jam and peanut brittle, home made by the nuns of the Good Shepherd Convent. Climb the stairway to Baguio Cathedral for a hilltop view of Session Road and Cordillera mountains in the distance.
Near Nevada Square, Forest House Bistro & Café offers a broad range of delicious dishes from wild mushroom soup to ginger lemon grass chicken and prawns thermidore. Barrio Fiesta on upper Session Road serves a variety of authentic Filipino fare, especially chicken, beef and pork dishes.
Having your own home base from which to explore delivers a large measure of comfort and convenience for you and your family. You can plan the day’s activities after a hearty, home-cooked breakfast and relax in the evening in perfect privacy.
