I saw Baguio - from day 'till night



I don't know what's with Baguio, but I kept on coming back to the city with expectations getting higher and higher as I visit and revisit it. 

Well, it was really because of The Bar's series of events. However, I still have a choice to join the team or not, yet, I decide to be counted in.

Where do I start?

Seeing Baguio minus the million heads walking around the city and the heavy hour traffic is really an apple of the eye. You have all the time to drive around the city or even walk with nothing to worry about but the cold wind.

Baguio during the day is really mouth-watering with the cold breeze, pine trees, and the picturesque spots. You can really tell the beauty of the place - you might even wonder how such place you only see in your dreams came to reality. 

Where do you go during the day?

If you have a car, you can drive yourself around the city. If you want to see the greener side of Baguio, there's Camp John Hay. The trees will surely inspire you write a poem, a song, or even a blog entry such as this. You'd better bring your wallet or credit card for you'll surely stop by the shopping area. 

Mine's View is another place to be. There will surely be countless heads around but what will drive you through is the thought of overviewing the trees that you won't ever see in Manila.

There's also the very busy and will always be busy Burnham Park - you can spend time rowing a goose or a boat on the creek or ride a bike if you never did your entire life.

At night, you will witness the other side of Baguio.

If you want to drink a bottle of beer or two, then you'll surely enjoy the ambience of Nevada Square. During Panagbenga, Nevada was a disaster, a famine. But just last Saturday night, I saw the peaceful and lovable side of it. You'll surely enjoy the way Baguio people celebrate the night away.

Session Road is another place to be. You can hop from one bar to another with this street-long party place. After your dreadful drinking session, you can cool down a bit with the dining areas stripped all over the street.

The best way to do it?

Visit Baguio on your own. 

You will surely enjoy the spots during the day and the party at night.
