It was around 6pm when we arrived in Baguio and headed immediately to APTS to check-in at the school dorm [US $7 per night per person]. It’s really cold during the night especially that APTS is located somewhere uptown.
We went the following morning to Philippine Military Academy and Camp John Hay for some very quick tour. Herman will always say there’s nothing in Baguio except these 2 places. Well I don’t mind since this is my 3rd time already so there’s really no need to tour the entire city. Ann being the first-timer didn’t mind also since she’s imagining the windmills of Ilocos already while we were in Baguio. For the first-timers, I suggest you'll check also Burnham Park, Wright Park, The Mansion, Botanical Garden, strawberry farm, etc.
What I really like the most in this summer capital of the country is their long and winding road. Now that I’m into running, this city is perfect for such activity. Imagine yourself doing LSD (long slow distance) run here:
The following morning, me and Ann pursued our "premature" plan of going to Ilocos Sur and Norte, while Cyrus and Herman went to Sagada. Third decided to stay in Baguio for the entire weekend. The boys wanted to have some adventure trip, while I wanted sightseeing. My reason: it’s my period and I just wanted an easy and light trip.
But before I will show you the beauty of Ilocos, let me show you the beauty of APTS campus first- my favorite spot in Baguio:
