Who doesn’t have childhood memories of boating in Burnham Park, horseback riding in Wright Park, or stopping to take a photo by the Baguio Lion on Kennon Road at first whiff of fresh pine? So much of Baguio’s appeal has to do with this throwback quality. There, a hint of nostalgia hangs in the air—the kind you try to capture with #nofilter selfies where the sunlight streams through the trees.
But it’s not just all oldtime charm—baguio has always been a haven for art and culture, as well as its wide array of food and shopping choices—both in terms of the “classics,” as well as what’s fresh on the scene. What makes Baguio special is that it’s a blend of the best of both worlds, and she is always ready to offer her visitors a mix of old and new. COSMOPOLITAN
The fact that the chilly weather is the perfect excuse to bust out your Fall/winter collection— or to cuddle by a roaring fire—is just an added bonus.
