Coming Back for More of City of Pines

Baguio is a place I will never get tired of  visiting.  Aside from the cold climate and beautiful sight, the city is also known  for its  rich history.   I've  been  to Baguio  for  the  nth time but still I get amazed and excited  like it was my  first  every  time.   In this visit,  we explored the not so usual spot  that  tourists often  missed.  We discovered  places  that  we only  read from other  bloggers  and travelers'  stories.   We stayed in transient homes  where guests are allowed to cook so it was  not  really  the  trip where meals are done  in  fast food,  restaurant  or  served inside the hotel.   Our  recent  trip  has many discoveries and  many  firsts experiences.  In  my coming  post,  it would be a series of  our  Baguio trip  from day 1 to day 3.  And because  we visited more than 20 tourist spots,   I'll be posting them in separate post,   coming in my next entries.

For strawberry alone, I can give  you  more reasons  to come back to the City of Pines,   Baguio City  that  is.   No  wonder,  Baguio is still the Summer Capital of the Philippines.   Here's a little bit of  Pines City  and why  I call the place a  city of  strawberry  too.

And  my  take  home  Strawberry  from Baguio  is now waiting  to squeeze in some juice and toppings for my sinigang.

Baguio City,  known as City of Pines   is located in the province of Benguet in northern Luzon. Some of famous tourist spots are Mines View Park, Strawberry Farm, Camp John Hay,  Burnham Park, Botanical Garden and more.  It  is about  six hours drive  from  Manila  with  about  250 kilometers  distance via Kennon Road  or  longer via Marcos Highway now known as Aspiras Highway.
