Baguio travel photography – Philippines

DSC_09266_baguio_philippines

 

Baguio is a city located on Luzon Island. It has been established as the ‘Summer Capital’ of the Philippines since 1903. If you are heading back from Pagudpud, there is no direct bus to Baguio. You will have to go back to Laoag which is a 2-hour bus journey and then from Laoag to Baguio which is a 8-hour bus journey. Make sure to leave Pagudpud early in the morning or get an overnight bus from Laoag.

Back during the American colonial era, officials used Baguio as a gateway to the crazy hot climate of the Philippines. Unfortunately, the travel interest of Baguio is close to null. There is not much to do or see in the city and it is heavily polluted!

Stonehill, Botiw-tiw and Sadjap are three sitios known for their mural painted houses at just 3 kilometers out of Baguio heading to La Trinidad. Families living in these communities were trained to help transform their houses into a giant mural using eco-friendly paint. The project was mainly inspired by Brazil’s favelas. You can either get a jeepney from Baguio Central market or walk up-there.
