This place is one of my favorite in Baguio because it is not crowded and the garden is very relaxing and beautiful. There were sculptures, ethnic huts where you can take pretty photos, at the gate there are elderly Igorots in their traditional outfit where you can take photos with for a fee. The flowers bloom before summer, so it is better to during those months.
Bell Church is a Taoist Temple in Baguio city. The place is not that big but it offers a Chinese architecture for your travel photos. It has a garden but you can’t walk around there.
Tamawan Village is a sanctuary for local artist in Baguio city. They have an art gallery, souvenir shops and a cafe. You can also enjoy the garden and fish ponds here. It also have a replica of traditional houses were you can stay for the night.
The strawberry farm in La Trindad, Baguio city is one popular tourist destination although it is not much a pretty spot to take photos but it is the experience of harvesting strawberries that makes people want to go here. There are also souvenirs shops around the area where you can buy your “pasalubong”. The place is not always available for harvesting so better check out the season before visiting.
Mount Ulap which is located in Itogon, Benguet is one unique mountain I have climbed. It is different from the lush jungle feel that I was used to. This one has a lot of pine trees and the path is wide and open. Hiking here can be very relaxing if you are not in a hurry. The weather is cool although there is not much shade to protect you from the sun but this place can get very cloudy and foggy in the afternoon. If you are aiming to get a clearing for your photos. I would suggest that you start your hike very early in the morning.
Pandin lake is very serene and mysterious because the water is dark and still but if you are with friends the place can be very active. I don’t think it is a good idea going here alone because the main activity here is to rent a bamboo raft and eat on the other side of the lake and swim. Part also of the package is going to Yambo lake which is very near Pandin lake. Although we are not allowed to get close to it for some reason. You are just allowed to view and take photos.
For those wanting to have a touch of Spanish and Nostalgia with there photos, Calle Crisologo is the place. This town is a heritage site for it’s old architecture that dates back during the Spanish colonial period. You will find here stores selling local products and modern restaurants combined. You can also ride horse carriage for that old travel experience.
