Thinking of taking a break somewhere chilly? You may have eyed Baguio City as your next vacation destination
Keep these basic tips in mind for a hassle-free trip to this windy, pine-filled city!
Keep All Necessary Documents ReadyQuarantine restrictions may have since been lowered, but many establishments still require vaccination cards before you can enter locations. To minimize fuss while going around, keep your vaccine certificate, a valid government-issued ID, and your QR Tourist Pass (QTP) in your bag. Have a digital copy of each document on your mobile phone as well, just in case.
Find A Cozy Nest For Your VacationHaving a good place to rest after a long day of touring Baguio’s numerous sights is key to having enough energy for your entire outing. Big groups like families or barkadas should consider staying on budget by renting out a house and lot in Baguio for the weekend instead of booking separate hotel rooms.
Renting a condo in Baguio City is a great option too for smaller groups and couples. Ask a real estate agent in Baguio City if they know any good short-term condo rentals that will suit your budget. They’ll be familiar with the best properties that have good access to nearby tourist attractions.
Plan Your Travel Route Ahead To Avoid Traffic And ReroutesAround the rainy season, it can be difficult to plan a smooth trip to Baguio City because the rain can make roads slick. It can also dislodge rocks from above, making some routes impassable until they’re cleared.
If you’re aiming for a Ber month vacation in the Summer Capital, keep an eye on weather conditions and local advisories about the roads. This will keep you from stressful delays or worrying about road safety.
