BAGUIO CITY TRAVEL GUIDE + Itinerary + Budget + Map ~ Updated 2020

Baguio Travel Guide Itinerary Budget Map Blog

Baguio City has been called a lot of things—the City of Pines, the Summer Capital of the Philippines—but what it is, really, is my favorite city in the Philippines.

It is arguably the hub of tourism in Luzon, especially during the month-long festivities of the Panagbenga Festival every February. It has the best thrift shopping places with its ukay-ukay stores. A food trip paradise with its numerous restaurants lining Session Road. And a weekend-getaway haven with its numerous tourist spots and general accessibility from Metro Manila. Its year-round cool and temperate weather only adds to its charm as a tourist destination.

I know I’m not alone in nominating Baguio City as their favorite city, but if you’re still unconvinced, here’s a travel guide to convert you to become a certified Baguio Junkie.


WHAT’S THE BEST TIME TO GO TO BAGUIO


It’s generally okay to visit Baguio the whole year round, but the best time to go to Baguio depends on what you’re looking for out of your trip.

If you want to experience the coldest weather in the Philippines, go during the months of November to February. The cold peaks during January where temperature can go down to 6.3 degrees Celsius. If you want to avoid a massive rush of tourists, avoid the Panagbenga Festival dates which usually happen on February.

The summer months of March to May can also be a good time to go to Baguio to get a little bit of respite from the heat. Note, however, that the weather can only go down to 25 to 16 degrees, the latter being during the dawn hours. These are the peak months of Baguio, be sure to book your hotels ahead of time and be prepared for the tourist crowd.

The rainy months of June to October can be also a romantically beautiful time to go up to Baguio. It does get really cold during these months plus you get to experience a foggy Baguio. I would suggest these for tourists who have visited before—those who need not go to the usual Baguio tourist spots and can trade these for simple strolls around the city with umbrella on hand and long visits to cafes and restaurants. This is also the best time to avoid the crowd.

HOW TO GET TO BAGUIO CITY


Baguio City is located some 250 kilometers from Metro Manila and is elevated 1,450 meters above sea level. Buses are the usual transportation of choice when going to the city and travel time usually clocks in at six hours (from Manila).

GETTING AROUND BAGUIO CITY


Jeepneys and taxis are the main modes of transportation in Baguio. Although it can be said that taxi cabs are more prevalent in the city than jeeps. This is probably due to the fact that taking a taxi in Baguio City is very cheap since most don’t need to use their air-conditioning—saving a lot on gas. Cab drivers are also very honest, giving back your change up to the last centavo. Flag down rate is Php35.00.

It’s still, however, cheaper to ride jeeps whether you’re going back to your hotel or some tourist spot in the city. Most tourist destinations in Baguio is, more often than not, accessible via jeepneys. Most of the terminals are located at the Igorot Park, beside Burnham Park, and the streets along the Baguio Public Market. If you’re not familiar with these places, don’t be shy to ask locals where the terminals are for any given destination. Minimum fare is Php9.00.

TOURS IN BAGUIO CITY


Baguio ToursBaguio City tour packages are a dime a dozen. The probability of finding one in your own city is quite high. These are mostly inclusive of lodgings, transfers, entrance fees, guides, and transportation. Rates range from about a thousand pesos per person per night, but that totally depends on how big your group would be. But if, however, you find yourself already in Baguio City, you can still check out numerous organized tours online or simply flag a taxi and negotiate with the driver for a tour of Baguio—remember to haggle, hard.

Note that I haven’t really tried using a tour package to see Baguio since the city is very to explore on your own. And I still recommend that you simply do a DIY tour of Baguio rather than avail of a package tour.

SPEAK BAGUIO


Filipino and English are widely spoken in Baguio City but their main language is, surprisingly, Ilocano.  I was under the impression that Ibaloi, which is closely related to Pangasinense (another popular language in the city), or Kankana-ey, which is prevalent in the northern parts of Benguet Province would be more dominant. Here are a few phrases in Ilocano then to help endear yourselves to the locals (especially when haggling at ukay-ukay, lol).

Baguio Language

Thank you – Agyamanak
Good morning – Naimbag a bigat
Good afternoon – Naimbag a malem
Good evening – Naimbag a sardam
How much is… – Sagmamano ti…
Where is… – Ayanna ti…

WHERE TO STAY IN BAGUIO CITY


There are uncountable number of lodgings and accommodations in Baguio City. They range from cheap backpacker types to really posh hotels. It would take a dedicated website to list each and every inns, hostels, motels, dorms, homestays and hotels in Baguio City, so I’ll simply list down those where I’ve stayed in.

The best area to stay in at Baguio is near Burnham Park since this is where most of good restaurants are in Baguio are. It is also convenient since the jeepney terminals are also just within the area. Granted that most of the big hotels around this area are expensive, you can find cheaper options along the sidestreets that are still within proximity to the park.

And although it’s usually very easy to get a lodging as you arrive in Baguio City, I advise that you book ahead, especially during the busy Panagbenga and Christmas season.

WHERE TO EAT IN BAGUIO CITY


Baguio City is a food-lovers paradise. The city has every cuisine you can think of in every style of restaurants possible. You can dine cheaply on Chinese dishes on one day and splurge on the same dish on a different restaurant the next day. But since you’re in Baguio, might as well chow down on greens more—fresh veggies are quite abundant in the area, making them really affordable. Most restaurants crowd around the Session Road area, but be adventurous and try some out of the way places too. Also, check out curious art cafés that makes dining almost secondary.

WHAT TO SEE & DO IN BAGUIO CITY


Baguio City is one of the most visited regions in Luzon. With its slew of tourist spots that keep visitors going back, year after year, it really isn’t hard to reckon why. From pine-laden parks, to native villages. Horse-riding to boat-paddling. Trail hikings and strawberry pickings. Art museums and haunted houses. One can say that tourism is Baguio City’s middle name.

WHERE TO SHOP & WHAT TO BUY IN BAGUIO CITY


Shopping for pasalubong and keepsakes is part and parcel of visiting Baguio City. One simply cannot go back home without bringing jars of strawberry jams, choco flakes, kinky barrel-man carvings, tacky shirts, keychains, and ref magnets with you. Add the fresh veggies and strawberries that can be bought very cheaply almost everywhere and you’ve got more than you can probably lift back home. You’d definitely run out of space for those walis tambo and giant kutsara at tinidor carvings very quickly if you don’t watch it.

BAGUIO CITY SAMPLE ITINERARY WITH TRAVEL BUDGET


A two-day weekend tour is usually not enough to cover most of the tourist attractions in Baguio City. A three-day itinerary can do it, but for a more relaxed pace, I advise that you extend your vacation to at least five days. Spend those two extra days to visit the PMA grounds and the Balatoc Mines (now closed), or simply walk around the city—try out various restaurants, have coffee at the numerous cafes, and simply enjoy being in Baguio City. The Baguio itinerary I made can be for a day trip, an overnight stay, or a two-night stay.

Traveling to Baguio City is not expensive. There are wide range of lodgings to choose from which can suit everyone’s budget. Food is also no problem since restaurants and eateries abound. Getting around is cheap, you can either ride a jeepney or take a cab, which is also surprisingly affordable, or better yet, walk. The city is both good for both budget backpackers and luxury travelers.

Along with this Baguio itinerary is a budget guide. It details jeepney fares (most of the jeepney terminals are near Burnham Park or the public market, ask the locals), minimum food cost, and the cheapest room rental cost. Note that I purposely didn’t include the transportation fare of actually going to and from Baguio since that can differ greatly, depending on where you’re coming from. And as always, this budget guide is intended for the absolute minimum one can spend for a three-day Baguio trip based on the itinerary I listed below (not including the restaurants, shopping, and pasalubong).
