Is Baguio City part of the list of places you want to visit this summer season? Certainly, it is a loud YES!
We would love to recommend you the following things you should fit into your bag before hitting the road.
Hardcopy or Digital Map
Baguio has a good number of tourist destinations that you can visit even without a tour guide. Asking locals about directions may work, but consulting a map is better.
Bring with you a Metro Baguio City map that shows you the way going to Mines View, Session Road, Burnham Park, SM City Baguio, Camp John Hay, etc. Or, download Google Maps or any mobile phone apps available online that so you can use to know your whereabouts and get directions on reaching a certain place in the metro.
A map will help you solve your own location problems.
Sweater or any Thick Clothes
Whether it is summer or not, Baguio City still has a temperature lower than any other cities in the Philippines. You body might not adjust immediately to the colder weather in Baguio and you might catch some flu.
Remember, a simple flu can ruin your Baguio tour! It can leave you confined within your hotel room while staring at your friends enjoying a stroll along Session Road.
Thus, never forget to bring thick clothes for emergency purposes. If you are lazy enough to pack up sweaters, you can buy one in thrift shops around the city.
In any case, bring your Vitamin C supply to boost your immune system while roaming around the woods and roads of Baguio City.
If you are not traveling with the service of a travel agency, make sure you research to come up with a possible itinerary.
Ask your friends who have already visited Baguio City or who are living in the city to suggest you things to do covering the span of your stay in the city. You can read blogs to get tips and extra-information that could guide your holiday.
The itinerary will make your stay in the city not a trial-and-error tour but a fruitful and memorable part of your life.
What else do you need to prepare before going to the bus stop to get your ticket? Your emotions of course because you will soon fall in love with the city and you will find yourself looking for a condominiums, apartments and house and lot property because you are relocating there!
