Baguio is known as the "Summer Capital of the Philippines," or as the "City of Pines" because of its cool temperature and verdant pine trees. SItuated on the Cordillera Mountains of Northern Luzon, Baguio is the perfect destination for those wanting to escape the tropical heat. The city was established in the 1900s as a hill station by the American’s for this very reason. It is also the perfect gateway to exploring the rest of the province of Benguet, and to other nearby places such as Kalinga, Sagada, and Banaue.
Land travel to Baguio is approximately 5-6 hours from Manila, 6 hours from Banaue, and 5-6 hours from Sagada.
