Baguio City
Philippines Summer Capital
Baguio is located about 250 kilometers north of Manila in a region called the Northern Philippines or the Cordillera. It is no wonder about it being the highest city in the country since it is located right atop the Cordillera Mountains in the province of Benguet with an elevation of at least 1,500 meters above sea level! It is about 5 to 6-hour drive via the zigzag routes of Kennon Road, Marcos Highway or Naguilian Road, or a 45-minute flight from Manila to the City's Loakan Airport.

BAGUIO - Situated amid pine-covered hills, with its cool climate, it is the Philippines' summer capital. This city lies within Benguet Province and is about 45 minutes flight from Manila or six (6 hours) by land. It is a major tourist destination and the nearest thing to a mountain retreat this tropical, humid country possesses. The city market is one of the country's best, overflowing with handicrafts, strawberries and vegetables from the surrounding highlands.
Tourists can visit the many beautiful spots in Baguio City starting with Burnham Park and Wright Park. Baguio is also home to the Philippine Military Academy, the "West Point" of the country.

Shopping is another favorite activity in Baguio. Mines View Park, St. Louis School, Nardaís Handicrafts, Baguio City Market and the Good Shepherd Convent sell souvenir items from wood carvings to fruit preserves.

Camp John Hay , formerly the rest and recreation station of U.S. military troops, maintains the best recreational facilities in Baguio. An 18-hole golf course, one of the most challenging in the country, is the Campís pride and joy.
