This flexible, all-inclusive tour package is perfect for those who want to explore the Philippines’ summer capital without the hassle of finding accommodations, booking tour packages, or handling transport services yourself.
Baguio City is known as the country’s Summer Capital because of its temperate weather and elevated location. Situated 255 KM north of Metro Manila, the city was established as a hill station during the Commonwealth period. Remnants of its American colonial heritage are evident in places such as Camp John Hay, Wright Park, Burnham Park, and Mines View Park. Local tourists from surrounding low land areas in Luzon flock to the City of Pines to escape the humid summer weather and take home iconic Baguio sweets like strawberry preserves, “ube” jam, and peanut brittle.
Your accommodations will be at the Venus Parkview Hotel, a budget hotel centrally situated on Kisad Road near Burnham Park. Those who opt for a hotel upgrade will check-in at The Forest Lodge Baguio in Camp John Hay, a place surrounded by pine trees and fun amenities like a zip line course, golf course, and butterfly sanctuary.
Drive up to the City of Pines and immerse yourself in its thriving arts scene with this 4 day Baguio Arts and Museums tour package. Check availability by choosing a date.
When you arrive in Baguio, proceed to your hotel to check-in at the reception at the Venus Parkview Hotel, or the Forest Lodge Baguio if you opted for the hotel upgrade. Settle into the room to rest. Conserve energy in preparation for the 8 hour Arts and Museum tour the following day.
Savor the crisp mountain air while eating your complimentary breakfast. Prepare for a full day’s itinerary, starting with a visit to the centuries-old Casa Villejo, the oldest hotel in the city that was established in 1909 followed by a trip to the Baguio Museum to view cultural artifacts and dioramas of Ifugao traditional homes.
Next, you’ll be heading to Museo Cordillera, an ethnographic museum that aims to preserve the indigenous heritage of people from the Cordillera Administrative Region. Afterward, your immersion in local culture continues at the Ili-Likha Artist Village, a food and art hub founded by film director “Kidlat Tahimik”. After enjoying the visual treats and delicious food, you’ll proceed to the Easter Weaving Room, a Baguio cultural mainstay where weavers using traditional techniques can be observed in action. Hand-loomed pieces like homeware, clothing and accessories are available for sale.
Afterward, you’ll head to an artist colony called the Tam-awan Village, an open-air museum with a reconstructed Cordillera village and doubles as a venue for exhibits and art workshops. The last two stops include the BenCab museum, which houses the national artist’s permanent painting collection, followed by the Ifugao Woodcarvers Village for intricately designed hand-made wooden products by talented artisans.
You have a full day to do as you wish, so you may either explore Baguio at your own pace or join a package tour. If you prefer to join a tour package, here are 4 to choose from, each with itineraries that focus on specific themes:
There’s the Cultural and Heritage tour, which is an homage to time-honored iconic Baguio attractions, or the Culinary, Coffee, Beer & Sightseeing Tour. Those who’d rather have chocolate than coffee could go on another foodie tour with the Culinary, Chocolate, Beer & Sightseeing tour, while those looking for a unique nature-inspired experience may want to join the Forest Bathing & Wellness Tour instead.
Before leaving Baguio, take the time to do some last-minute souvenir shopping or picture taking, and then prepare for your trip back to Manila.
