This bronze masterpiece is the work of Ben Hur Villanueva, a renowned Filipino sculptor. The statue represents the of the Cordillerans, Americans, Chinese, and Japanese in building Baguio.

You will find pocket gardens and pavilions dedicated to Baguio's sister cities in countries such as South Korea, Japan, China, Canada, Thailand, and the USA.
These sections are decorated with symbols that represent each city. There are also relics from the Igorot Village, such as giant statues depicting different Cordillera tribes.
Aside from the pasalubong stores around Mines View Park, do not forget to drop by at the Good Shepherd Convent that is just a stones' throw away.
Their acclaimed peanut brittle, ube, and strawberry jam have become synonymous with Baguio pasalubong. They are also now offering baked goodies like Lengua de Gato and alfajores, homemade ice cream, and strawberry-calamansi juice.
Nuns and volunteers from the international congregation The Religious of the Good Shepherd Sisters run the convent, with profits from Good Shepherd going to charity.
Students of the Mountain Maid Training Center and Development Inc. create the products as part of the congregation's livelihood program to poor female students from Kalinga and Bontoc.
Be prepared to either line up for at least 30 minutes as you wait to be serviced or get heartbroken when your desired product goes out of stock.
Though, you may enjoy taking photos from the convent's view deck with the Cordillera Mountains as your background.

Baguio City: Basic Information and Brief History
Baguio is a highly urbanized city located in the province of Benguet. It is also known as the Summer Capital of the Philippines due to its chilly year-round environment.

Baguio City is also abundant in history. During the American Colonial Period in the 1900s, the US Military used Baguio as a hill station. Daniel Burnham, an urban designer, plans the whole city’s distinct layout. Unfortunately, during World War II, the Japanese attacked Camp John Hay, turning the city into ruins.
Currently, Baguio City is one of the most famous tourist spots in the country. But, who could imagine this mountainous city has a lot of historical moments that shaped the Philippines today?

Any additional travel tips in Baguio City?
- One important keyword: Follow . Follow your itinerary, the city’s safety standards, and the travel and tour agency.
- Bring your jackets . The night is colder than you think, and wearing a jacket is an added layer of protection against the city’s cold climate.
- Always keep yourself hydrated . Baguio City is a high-altitude city, and you might experience altitude sickness if you explore the place on foot. Always bring a water bottle with you to avoid getting altitude sickness.
- Always bring a small bag . In traveling, you might bring a big 30L to 40L backpack full of clothes and things you need for the following days of your trip. Of course, you will not be getting your heavy bags with you during the tour. Keep your main bag in your hotel room or accommodation. Bringing a small bag helps explore the city without the excess weight.
- Reservations are king . It’s better to reserve things in advance before any trip or activity. Many travelers visit the city daily, and full accommodation is a common problem. Always book your accommodation in advance, it’s better this way than letting yourselves stay in the street braving the cold night.
- Have an open mind and be responsible . We are all visitors to this place; be sensitive and respect their culture, values, and norms. Avoid throwing trash and be responsible.

hi. what time po open ang cafe in the sky?
The last time we visited Cafe in the Sky was in 2017. We arrived at 5 AM and the cafe was already opened. I don’t know if it’s still the same today since that area is closed to the public. Only residents of Baguio City are allowed to enter the area.
Have a safe trip!
Hi, totoo bang mahirap ang parking area sa mga tourist attraction? My friend told me na mas better iwan ang kotse sa accomodation then mag-taxi nalang?
Hi Carlo, Yes! The traffic is even worse during the holiday season. Most tourists keep their vehicles in their accommodation and ride a cab instead. Pero, it depends on the tourist attraction na pupuntahan ninyo. If you are planning to visit the most crowded places like (Wright Park, Mines View, Botanical Garden, and Session Road), I advise na mag-taxi na lang kayo. For places like BenCab and Strawberry Farm, you can bring your vehicle since medyo malayo na mga ito and baka mapa-mahal pa kayo if mag taxi kayo. Enjoy your upcoming vacation in Baguio!
Hello! True bang di na need ng QTP/Visita requirements pag nagpuntang Baguio?
Hi Key, I asked the staff from local Baguio Tourism Office and said that QTP is still required when visiting Baguio City. However, based on the experience of my fellow blogger on his recent trip, they are not implementing the QTP strictly anymore. To be safe, just apply for a QTP in case they look for it.
So helpful . Thank you!
My pleasure, Jessica! Enjoy your trip to Baguio City 🙂

Nakacheck in na din ako sa Bed and Bath kaso I really don’t prefer dormitory styles at di ko bet CR nila. Though it’s cheap and very accessible sa down town.Pero last time we were there to ask tariffs, pogi yung front desk lols!
I went to Legazpi City last 2011, I think it’s time to revisit your home city again 🙂

Baguio tourist arrivals rise by 15.7 percent
Photo by Armando M. Bolislis
BAGUIO CITY – The City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) bared that the city continues to surpass the tourism figures recorded by the local government during the previous years, a clear indication that the city remains one of the preferred tourist destinations in the country.
City Planning and Development officer Engr. Evelyn G. Cayat disclosed that based on the data obtained from the City Tourism Office, over 1,760,729 tourists visited Baguio City last year, a 15.7 percent increase from the recorded 1,521,748 tourist arrivals in 2017.
Further, the city planning officer noted that existing accommodation establishments in the different parts of the city employed some 2,963 individuals last year that contributed in the provision of more jobs for qualified residents from the city’s 128 barangays.
Colors of baguio, tuba mayor urges tourists to visit pristine destinations, da-car employees trained on filipino brand of service excellence.
However, the City Tourism Office is still working on a system to be able to cull out the data from these accommodation establishments to determine the actual number of tourists to the city in line with the city ordinance requiring the tourism-related establishments operating in the city to submit data on visitors patronizing their establishments so that close to real figures on tourist arrivals could be determined to guide policy makers and decision makers in the crafting of programs, projects and activities to improve the local tourism industry.
With such a monitoring system, the city government can entice the active participation of tourism industry stakeholders to honestly declare the number of visitors patronising their establishments during a certain period of time and their data can be used by the concerned office in ascertaining the close to real number of visitors that visited the city.
On the other hand, the city government is also studying the a mechanism for the recording of day visitors as it is observed that there is a spike in the city’s daytime population.
Cayat’s office has not disaggregated data on tourist arrivals in the city, especially on the number of foreign and domestic visitors who came to the city during the given period.
She explained Baguio City still remains a prime tourist destination in the country because foreign and domestic tourists continue to flock to the mountain resort city even with some negative publicity from some quarters.
Baguio continues to bank on its cool weather as its natural pull for foreign and domestic visitors to flock to the city and enjoy their well-deserved break from the scorching heat of the lowland areas as it remains the undisputed Summer Capital of the country for decades since it was declared as such by the Philippine Commission in 1903.

Baguio records high tourists’ arrivals in December 2022
BAGUIO CITY -- The City Tourism Operations Office reported a remarkable increase in tourists’ arrivals last December in the city.
City Tourism Operations Officer Engr. Aloysius Mapalo noted that tourists estimated to be between 400,000 and 500,000 visited the famous mountain hideaway last month, with a notable surge recorded during the Yuletide season.
The surge, according to Mapalo, was owing to ‘travel revenge’ or the eagerness of the people to travel after more than two years of community restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The estimated number of tourists’ arrivals in December was much higher than the 100,000 to 150,000 visitors recorded during the previous months.
Baguio is a premier tourist destination that people want to visit.
Mapalo admitted that the number was just estimated as the real size of tourist arrivals could be lesser or even higher because of the proliferation of illegal accommodation establishments and the failure of other similar businesses to declare their actual number of occupants which the city is now trying to address.
The tourist arrivals in the city started to increase gradually in March last year after the wave of the Covid-19 Omicron variant started to wane which in turn resulted in a partial easing up of the community quarantine restrictions to allow the movement of people.
In 2019, the city recorded more than 1.5 million tourist arrivals during the year based on the declared occupancies of permitted hotels, inns and transient houses, although the figure was not accurate because of the absence of a mechanism to monitor the tourists, many of them may have been accommodated illegally in establishments in barangays.
The city is working out the implementation of a policy among permitted accommodation establishments to require tourists to register with the Visitors Information and Travel Assistance (VISITA) tourist application for the city government to establish reliable data of tourist arrivals in the city during a certain period.

100,000 tourists expected in Baguio City this Holy Week
Some 100,000 tourists are expected to troop to summer capital Baguio City this Holy Week.
The Baguio City Police Office is on alert to ensure the security and safety of tourists during Holy Week and the long weekend, according to a report of Claire Lacanilao of GMA Regional TV One North Central Luzon on Unang Balita on Wednesday.
More than 1,000 cops have been deployed to tourist spots, churches, and terminals of buses and vans.
"'Yung mga naka-deploy ngayon na (Police Assistance Desk) natin doon, sila 'yung tumutulong sa pag-assist sa mga motorista na paakyat ng Baguio, lalong-lalo na 'yung mga baguhan, at saka nag-ga-guide din sila sa mga puwedeng alternate route na pasukan para hindi na kailangang pumasok sa (Central Business District)," Baguio City Police Office public information officer Police Lieutenant Angeline Dongpaen said.
(Our cops manning Police Assistance Desks assist motorists going up to Baguio, especially those who are first timers. They also guide them toward alternate routes they may take so they would not need to have to enter the Central Business District.)
The City Tourism Office is also on alert, and has put up motorist and tourist assistance desks in tourist spots.
Authorities advised visitors to be extra patient as heavy traffic may be expected.
To date, hotels and transient houses are already fully booked for the Holy Week and long weekend.
Authorities meanwhile are monitoring possible scams offered by fake transient houses.
"Planuhin po natin nang maigi ang ating pagbiyahe sa Baguio. Hangga't maaari, may kausap na sana tayong accommodation establishments para hindi tayo dito pa maghahanap. Meron tayong listahan ng mga legitimate na businesses ng city or accommodation establishment sa visita.baguio.gov.ph ," Baguio City Tourism Office tourism operations officer II Rachelle Anne Montoya said.
(Let's plan our trip to Baguio. As much as possible, coordinate with accommodation establishments so you would not have to look for a place to stay when you are already here. There is a list of legitimate accommodation establishments on visita.baguio.gov.ph .)
The City Tourism Office is coordinating with other government agencies to ensure the safe and peaceful visits of tourists.
It said it is also expecting that more tourists will arrive after Holy Week.
Meanwhile, authorities reminded visitors to dispose of their garbage responsibly and follow the city's regulations such as the no smoking policy and number coding scheme. —KG, GMA Integrated News
