D Squad in Baguio

by - June 11, 2017

Here's my first official trip this 2017.  I spent one long weekend in the city of pines with le squad back in April.

I actually had no plans of doing a post about this trip, but I thought I'd share some photos and mention places (which most of you know of already haha) you can check out in case you want to go to the north and experience Baguio even if summer season is almost over.  

We rented a unit in Megatower Residences through Airbnb.  It's only two hills blocks away from Session Road and few tumblings away from SM mall.  We only paid around 3,000 per person for 3 nights.

Btw, if you wanna save money on your Airbnb booking, use this link to sign up. 😉

First stop, Baguio Craft Brewery.

It was a fun place and the beer was perfect for that chilly night.  Everything was quite expensive though.

You can choose from at least 10 kinds of craft beers and they also allow customers to taste what they want first before ordering.

Another thing I loved here was the salsa.  It's bomb. 💣

Since we weren't in a hotel and there's no free breakfast, we had to go to a nearby cafe.  There's this rustic themed one that serves Vietnamese and Italian coffee.  It's called The Coffee Library.

Service was a bit slow but overall, food and drinks were good.  You must try their fried suman!

After brunch, we rode a taxi to Tam-awan Village.  The place resembles a native or traditional village of the Cordillera region.  It reminded me of the one we saw in Banaue.

Entrance fee was around 50 pesos.

After that, we went to Bencab museum for some art appreciation moment.  Haha!  😄

We paid for around 120 or 150 php upon entry.

If I remember correctly, there were 4 floors and 1 was for the cafe.

You could see various artwork here from painting, sculpture, mixed media and more.  I actually didn't expect that I would enjoy that museum experience.  I ended up wanting to visit another one in the future.

Our last stop for that day - Camp John Hay to try a restaurant called Choco-late de Batirol.

Either the bibingka or suman was perfect to pair with the chocolatiest hot choco I've ever tried so far. 😊

The following day, we attempted to go to the strawberry farm but due to bad hangover, we woke up late and had to spend the whole afternoon waiting to be seated at Cafe by the Ruins.  Ugh. 😭

Hopefully, next time I would get to pick fresh strawberries.  It was my 4th trip to Baguio as far as I can remember but still, no chance to visit La Trinidad.

So that's all!  Do you know any other places to check out in Baguio?  Comment below! 😃

your sweetest drug,
