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.
