Baguio City is a popular tourist destination renowned for its chilly climate, scenic mountain views, and delicious strawberries. It was historically built as a hill station or a place of refuge by the United States in 1900. This explains why remnants of its American colonial past are evident in many of its iconic cultural sites like Wright Park, Camp John Hay, and Mansion House, which are a few of the places included in your tour package

Your home base for the duration of the trip is at Venus Parkview Hotel, a budget hotel centrally located along Kisad Road, but if you opt for a hotel upgrade as an add-on service, your accommodations will be at The Forest Lodge Baguio in Camp John Hay.

Discover Baguio’s rich cultural heritage when you book this 5-day tour package and enrich your experience by adding optional tour packages to your itinerary. Check availability by choosing a date.
