An unplanned Baguio trip was much needed to escape the scorching heat  in the valley (Abra). It was supposed to be rainy season in the Philippines, but the heat is quite persistent. But it is not much different as the the weather back in Texas during summer, only the humidity is terrible here.

It has been 5 years since I last visited Baguio, I don’t see much changes, only more Koreans walking around Session Roads. Taxi drivers are still at their best behaviors giving passengers’ change back no matter how small the amount is, unlike the cab drivers in Manila.

We stayed at Citylight Hotel, just below SM Baguio. It is quite affordable, and is located around the most visited tourist destinations. It is near Session Road, and Baguio Cathedral. The hotel looks modern and contemporary, featuring geometric architectural designs. I think majority of their rooms, if not all, does not feature air conditioning, something I wish they had an option to.

Baguio’s night scene was kinda dead during our visit. It was the night before the first day of school this semester so it was expected. From Nevada,  we ended up chilling at Nostalgia Bar with live music.

Mine’s View. I can’t leave Baguio without visiting this place. In here you can buy souvenirs, take photos wearing traditional Igorot costumes, and a huge St. Bernard Dog!
