I went to Baguio last April 2009, and it was my first time there. I went there with my love of my life and we spent three days and two nights.
When we arrived in Baguio (with the help of Victory Liner), we went directly to our hotel, Bloomfield Hotel (we made reservation three weeks before). Since it was already 4pm, and it was raining, nagpahinga muna kami. Nang makatulog at gumawa ng konting, alam nyo na, we went malling, and of couse sa SM Baguio since katapat lang ng Bloomfield. (By the way, if you guys plan to visit Baguio, I recommend this hotel, malapit kahit saan, nice hotel, at accommodating staffs.)
After, naglakad-lakad sa Session Road, at malamig... We decided to dine in Pizza Volante along Session Road. Sarap ng pizza at pasta dito...
Day Two. Strolling again sa Session Road, sarap maglakad-lakad dito kahit madami tao, at kahit may araw we need to wear our jackets, lamig e... We visited Baguio Cathedral, then sa Burnham Park. After the park, we walked until we reached the Baguio-Mt. Province Museum. Uulan na naman, so we took a cab to visit PMA, it's a 20-min ride from the Museum (the plugdown rate for taxi is 25pesos and 1.50 for every km?). When we were already in PMA, sobrang lakas na ng ulan, so we told the driver to bring us in Camp John Hay. Kumain kami sa Mile Hi Diner, sa Mile Hi Center sa loob ng Camp John Day. We were planning to visit Igorot Park, Mines View, pero malakas pa rin ang ulan, so bumalik na kami sa City proper and strolled the Baguio Market and Abanao Square. Then, pumunta uli sa SM Baguio. Ang SM dito ay walang aircon at lagi kaming tambay sa mga verandas ng SM. The verandas overlook the whole Baguio City, which gives the best view of the city.
We went back to our hotel, and we decided to dine in Zola, along Session Road, the original plan was 50s Diner, pero since 12MN sarado na.
Day 3. Visited Mines View Park, Wright Park, and The Mansion. Hindi na kami nakapunta sa Strawberry Farm kasi maulan na naman. Bumili ng pasalubong sa Good Shepherd Convent, at sa Baguio Market.
By 830pm, uwi na sa Manila sakay ng Victory Liner.
The only downside of the trip was the rain. For three days, tuwing hapon umuulan, at hanggang gabi na to.
