Oh Baguio! The cold never bothered me anyway! Loved the cool breeze and lots of fine trees. :)

Kinda disappointed with the Lost Cemetery as I thought it would be big, but it doesnt. Anyway, the tombs are entertaining.

Yeah, I liked the weather! I will try their outdoor activities next time.

R and I love Baguio so much that we frequent it as if it's just an hour drive. There were times when we'd visit twice in one month just so we could enjoy the cool and somewhat fresh breeze.

It's just sad though that the traffic in Baguio could be unbearable at times discouraging us from exploring the land of ube halaya and strawberries.

On good days though, R would be more than glad to drive around the city. And surprisingly, traffic wasn't bad at all during the Panagbenga Festival weekend.

That doesn't mean though that establishments are empty. Cafe by the Ruins for one had an approximate one hour wait list. Other restaurants like Sakura Terraces and those in Legarda do not have enough parking making it unlikely for us to dine there.

Then R proposed that we head to Camp John Hay, the less crowded version of Burnham Park.

There was not much of a crowd when we got there. We easily got parking and had late lunch at Choco-Late de Batirol.

After a filling meh-sarap afternoon snack, we walked around the area and enjoyed the picturesque view of trees.

On our way back, we passed by the area with restaurants and outlet store (or is it ukay-ukay).

I also spotted an area where you could camp and picnic. I'll definitely go back for that. 128525

Although Camp John Hay has been around since 1903, this former United States Air Forces R&R (rest and recreation) spot is definitely worth a revisit not just because of the hotels, golf course and shopping centers, but because of the Historical Core, where you can find The Lost Cemetery (Cemetery of Negativism), The Bell House, Bell Amphitheater, Statue of Liberty replica, and History Trail.

Walk along memory lane as you explore the Bell House and its adjoining library museum, and the History Trail, which gives you a glimpse of the Camp’s more than 100 years’ past. There’s also a Secret Garden near the Bel House but since it was getting dark, we didn’t get a chance to see it. Recently featured in a popular primetime local soap opera, my family had a blast going around the Lost Cemetery. We didn’t had a chance to go down the Bell Amphitheater as it was currently occupied by a just finished wedding.

Travel date: December 2014

I visited this place for the sake of it. There's nothing much to do, though. I liked the pine trees and the cold weather here compared to the weather in the city proper. I went inside the Bell House and imho it's not that interesting. 🙄 Well, it's still a good place to stroll at. 128526

Stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights for work. This is called the Forest Cabin. About P12,000 per night. However it's really big inside, 20 people can fit in. They have 3 floors. 2 bedrooms on the second floor and 2 attic room. Airconditioned with TV and clean kitchen m. They have a huge refrigerator. Everything you'll possibly need is here. Cozy place! They also have a heater in their bathroom so no worries on taking a shower.

I love Camp John Hay because its not crowded and there's no traffic inside. The only downside is, it can get to expensive inside.

i love camp john hay. it's clean and the people here are disciplined thanks to the guards.

i didn't know they have a callcenter here already with a good bunch of restos in the Baguio techno hub area.

i did not try the tree top adventure.

i did go see the bell house with an entrance fee of 60pesos per person for non students. with that fee you can go to Bell's museum house, the amphitheater, the garden around the area and a part of negativity cemetery.

i love the flowers around the area.

good thing i saw workers renovating the Bell's house. We need historical structures like this restored for future generations to enjoy.

The only place we like to really stay in in Baguio. This last trip, we stayed in Le Monet instead of the Manor.

John Hay is getting a little crowded but the pine trees with the fog still gives you that "Baguio feel."

Baguio still has that better feel than Tagaytay which is becoming too crowded. I just wish that Baguio starts regulating the jeepneys and the FX AUVs which are real smoke belchers in the city.

A beautiful resort in the mountains it features a world class competition Jack Niclaus-designed golf course (said to be the only course in the Philippines to have bentgrass greens) as well as hotels, a shopping center & a convention center, among other attractions. & the festive Ayala techno hub with its varied dining options ... Many had change from the time that it use to be an American base...And yet Camp John Hay's charm remains the same with its pine tree-lined roads, beautiful landscaping, quaint cottages and wide open spaces. The place remains a "must visit" for tourists.

I'm here for work purposes... Crossing my fingers & hope it will push tru 12807797281002410024
