Planning to go to Baguio with your friends and family? I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy a short vacation with a new surrounding and a cool weather to boot — free from any stress and just enjoying the quality time with your loved ones.
After a decade, I finally went to Baguio again with my family and college friends. I didn’t remember much about my first trip here, I guess that’s because I was nursing a broken heart back then, LOL! But anyways, we actually went here to witness and celebrate a momentous event — our friends’ wedding. And of course, we didn’t waste this opportunity to have a short vacation, and to break away from the daily grind of our responsibilities.
So if you’re planning to go to Baguio, here’s a suggested itinerary for you:
5am-11am: Travel time from Manila to Baguio
11am-1pm: Lunch at the Canto Restaurant. My friend said this restaurant is a must try when you go to Baguio. We actually fell in a long line before we had our own tables.
1pm-2pm: Checked in a family-owned vacation house we rented. We didn’t go for any hotels or inns, vacation houses were cheaper if you’re going as a group.
2pm onward: Camp John Hay and Baguio Country Club
9am-12nn: Mines View
12nn – 1pm: Lunch at Happy Tummy, which is across Canto.

The itinerary above is just a suggestion. It’s not the actual schedule that we followed since we attended a wedding on our second day.
Now time for our photos in no specific order…
Across the establishment where Canto restaurant is located, there is a park where Yesha and I went horse-back riding. I didn’t want to do it at first because I was afraid to ride a horse and have never tried it my whole life. But what can I do, my daughter wanted it so bad that I had to gulp my own fear. It turned out, the ride and the friendly horse put me at ease. I actually had fun! And so was Yesha.

At John Camp Hay. During this time the cast of Forevermore was having their shooting. And my friends were die-hard fans.
At the Mines View, there were so many photoshoot areas you can pose with your family and friends. This is our photo with the magical horse…
