Baguio is considered to be the summer capital of the Philippines, here you can enjoy cool crisp weather all year, in fact many of the hotels in Baguio City do not even have air-conditioning, due the the cool climate. Baguio is a very beautiful city, as it is set in a valley surrounded by beautiful mountians covered with pine trees, it is a place of peace and tranquility.
Due to the nice climate many of the hotels in Baguio stay booked, as this area does not have the low and high seasons experienced by other Philippines destinations.
Land Transfer Service
From Manila it takes an average of six hours to travel the 250-km distance between Manila and Baguio by way of Kennon Road. It is about fifteen minutes longer through Marcos Highway and could take three more hours when going through Naguilian Road. Kennon Road is occasionally blocked by landslides during the rainy season and the same problems also occur at the other two access roads. The route to Baguio through Kennon Road is as scenic as it is dangerous.
From Aritao in the province of Nueva Vizcaya but this is less traveled, the road is not well maintained, and public transportation through this route is not as regular.
