Hiking and Trekking
Widely diverse, but equally enchanting and relaxing the mountains of Baguio are a natural magnet for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. There are a variety of trails and hike routes, from leisurely hikes within the city's sprawling parks, to overnight expeditions along the slopes of the Cordillera mountains.
Picnics at the Parks
Baguio is called the Garden City of the north .Very clean and well-maintained, Baguio's parks are the pride of the city. Its many scenic parks dot the cityscape and offer the chance for a quiet and tranquil afternoon getaway. Aside from the usual picnicking, one can try their hand at horseback riding or fishing.
Baguio has earned a reputation as a mecca for bargain-hunters from all across Luzon. Centered around Mines View Park, rickety stalls and glass-display storefronts hawk trinkets, furniture, clothes, handbags and jackets, honey and strawberries, and everything in between. Best of all, all prices are open to debate, and nothing is fixed until the money changes hands.
Plenty of restaurants along Session Road, the main commercial artery that winds through the city. Visitors from all over the world will not have any difficulty recognizing the international fare offered from the many establishments. On the menu are American steak-and-potatoes meals, Italian pizza and pasta, Chinese dishes which make full use of fresh vegetables and meats, Japanese and Mongolian specialties and Filipino dishes.
Baguio is not only having breath taking sights, sound and scents but also of fun and festivities that visitors will find and experience in the City of Pines. Tribal festivals afford insights into the culture of the hardy mountain tribes who have held onto their own proud heritage despite a certain degree of assimilation and acculturation. Every November, the Grand Canao is held - a thanksgiving celebration in the highland tradition wherein animals are ritually slaughtered then roasted before being set on the festive table.
