Baguio in Philippines - Amazing climate

Post by Billy » October 29th, 2013, 4:57 pm

One problem with Philis is the hot climate. But Baguio seems to be very good on that matter. Do any of you guys have intel about that city? and what´s your opinion?

It rains a lot there much of the year, is smallish, and boring. I didn't like it at all.

General impressions: It strikes me a more prosperous than most of the Philippines. Decent, small, active downtown area. Didn't see any girlie bar type nightlife, but wasn't looking, so it may be there. The town has a different feel and layout due to being on the side of a mountain, you are always going uphill or downhill.

@Billy
Yes Baguio is a nice getaway. It has cool climate, fresher air with less pollution, is relaxed and not too crowded, has some forests to hike in, has mountains to see, and nice strawberry fields to get strawberries at. Also the food quality in restaurants there is higher than usual. The cooks there take pride in their cooking and care about flavors and quality of their food. However, there are some major drawbacks.

1. The girls there aren't interested in dating foreigners and are kind of reserved and not that approachable or sociable. They act like they don't need us.
2. Hotels there are kind of pricey. Hard to find cheaper options.
3. The city is 4 hours from the nearest airport, so it's a pain to drive down the mountain all the way to the airport for a flight, or to pick up someone at the airport.

Btw, if you take the bus from Baguio another 8 hours north to Sagada, it is nice there as well. Lots of rice terraces, mountains, scenic vistas, and caves to explore.

Only a few places in the Philippines has girlie bars. Angeles, Subic/Olongapo, Manila, Cebu and a to a small degree, Sabang in Puerto Galera which begs the question, what was Winston doing in Baguio? :lol:

I was with Dianne and some friends on a getaway. And one time I took my parents too. Why do you ask? Don't you know that I like nature too? Didn't you see the photos and videos of my Southwest USA tours?

Also even in Angeles City, I don't go to bars that much. Just once in a while. There's other things there to do too you know.

I was joking! You don't come across as a monger I must admit. Where else in the Phils have you visited? Have you been to Palawan yet?

Baguio is a nice city of itself, MINUS the crazy traffic over there.

I went to Baguio back in January when I visited Grace and her family.

The temperature over there is much cooler than the other parts of the Philippines. There were so many pine trees in the Baguio area. Reminded me of certain parts of Korea. Funny because for me, I enjoyed the cooler temperature in Baguio. But for Grace and her sister, they were complaining that it was too "cold" for them. I think it was 55F that morning. Very mild cool weather. Similar to Northern California cool climate.
