The Friendly Faces of Baguio

Baguio City

“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.”
– Tim Cahill

Just a night’s drive from Manila, Baguio City sits atop a mountain in the tropical pine forest region of Northern Luzon.  It was established in 1900 by Americans during their colonial rule to provide a summer playground for government officials. At nearly 10 degrees Celsius cooler than the rest of the country, its chilly climate and relaxed atmosphere still refreshes the soul for today’s travelers. Perhaps even more inviting are the friendly faces visitors encounter in this cheery town.

  2. Believe it or not, a small town in France called Bayeux. The lady who owned the hotel we were staying at noticed my limp and right away asked if we wanted a lower level room and if I was going to be ok going up and down the stairs. If we looked lost, people asked if we needed help. It was great!

    • Hi Jun – Gosh, I wish it was my home! I love that cool and relaxed atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back – though there are still lots of places I still have to explore. Thanks so much for passing by my blog!
