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. While stay­ing in and cozy­ing up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa is a wor­thy Baguio “ac­tiv­ity,” there’s lots to do once you step out­side—whether you wax nos­tal­gic, or zero in on some­thing more novel. may 2016
