If only Baguio is not a 7-hour drive from Manila, we would be here every single weekend!
I love the cool weather, the flowers, the fresh fruits and vegetables. Personally, I prefer to go there in February because there arent a lot of people and the weather is nice and cool.
Our daughter has celebrated her first and third birthday here.
Our children are lucky enough to have a generous lolo who lets us stay at Azalea. We like it there because the rooms are spacious plus there’s a play area.
Horseback riding is a definite must. When my daughter was 1, she had fun on her first pony ride but when we took her again when she turned 3, she cried 😟 But after a few strides of the pony, she got to enjoy it again.
Boating and biking are also nice at Burnham especially around sunset.
Lots of people also go on a picnic in Camp John Hay but for this trip we forgot to bring the tent so we just bought bubbles and let the kids have fun blowing and popping 🙂
Strawberry picking is nice but you need to wake up real early as it can be a bit hot. My suggestion though is to let the kids just harvest lettuce, it’s more fun pulling it out of the ground plus it’s way cheaper.
Places to Eat
Mario’s is at the top of our list for special occassions. Our little girl celebrated her birthday here twice.
Good Taste is my absolute favorite because the food is great and so is the price. Just avoid going there on rush hour (lunch and dinner time) as the place can get really crowded.
Cathy’s is an old establishment near Burnham with student friendly meals meaning it is super cheap. We went here with a a big group of around 20 relatives and our bill was just below PHP 2,000.
An alternative for strawberry and ube would be silver, kalinga coffee or rice 🙂
