ESCAPADES > Baguio City

            There are a number of landmarks and scenic attractions within the City of Baguio that are worth visiting. The city's cool climate, pine-scented air, clean surroundings, and its hospitable and friendly residents will surely make your visit memorable and a pleasure as well. Once you visit Baguio, you will somehow want to keep coming back. 

            Through this Website you will have a chance to see twenty-two of the most popular and well visited landmarks and scenic sites of the city. I prepared a brief write-up for each landmark and with it are selected photographs which are intended to clearly portray each site.

   

MINES VIEW PARK
            The main attraction of the park is a promontory where you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of Benguet's gold and copper mines and the surrounding mountains. It is a spectacular sight to behold and should not be missed when visiting Baguio.

BURNHAM PARK
            Burnham Park is centered around a man-made lake located at the heart of the city. The park provides residents of Baguio and its visitors adequate facilities for recreation and relaxation. It was named after the city's planner, an American named Daniel Burnham and is synonymous with Baguio City.

KENNON ROAD
            Kennon Road is one of the three major access roads that lead up to Baguio City from Manila and the provinces in the central and western parts of Luzon. Inspite of erosion problems, its sharp hairpin turns, narrow lanes, and blind curves it is still the most scenic road in the country.

BAGUIO CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL
            This Catholic cathedral is located on top of a hill in the heart of the city and is one of the more familiar and most visited landmarks. It is the biggest Catholic Church in Baguio and is the center of religious activities during the Holy Week when thousands of devotees come up to the city.
