Tourist Spots in Baguio City   by Ethelgarcia

Featured Baguio Hotels

Known as one of the industrialized cities in the Northern part of the Philippines, Baguio is hailed as the summer capital of the Philippines. Many people visit this city every summer because of its cold weather and attractive tourist spots. Based on the history of the city, it is the Americans, which recognized Baguio as one of the Philippine cities on June 1, 1903 at Kafagway. 

Tourism is one of Baguio's main industries. During the yearend holidays some people from the lowlands would prefer spending their vacation in the city. This is for them to experience the cold temperature they rarely get from their home provinces. Also, during the summer season specially during the Holy Week, tourists from all over the country would flock to the city. During this time, the total number of people in the city would double. To accommodate all these people, there are more than 80 hotels and inns available for them to check in, vacation houses and for rent houses in Baguio City. Local festivities such as the Panagbenga Festival also attracts both local and foreign tourists.

For travellers who want to have a look at some tourist spots in city, I have listed below some places that you shouldn't miss when you're in Baguio City.
