If you’re looking for things to do/see/eat in Baguio that makes Baguio the Baguio in your imagination, here’s PART I of the FAVORITES IN BAGUIO from a person who lived in it for almost half a decade.


And as I said in that post, the list will never stop as I make my way through the mountaintop everytime my heart calls for it. And until Baguio continues to evolve, this list shall, too.


  • Mt. Cloud Bookstore

I have a fascination for quaint, non-commercial bookstores. The ones that look like a bibliophile just curated himself in his home. Mt Cloud Bookstore is a perfect example! To be situated in a sweater weather romantic Baguio just made it a little extra special. Sometimes, you do get all rainbows and unicorns.

  • Mother’s Garden

    It’s a bit of a challenge to find this garden but that adds the charm to it, I believe. Its disconnect from the city, the solitude, the lack of noisy chatters are attributes someone who goes to Baguio will appreciate.

  • Chef’s Home

The Chef’s Home is a surprise discovery. Come early to get a table and to allot time before hunger strikes as your food is prepared from scratch by a Malaysian ex-5-star hotel chef. The wait is definitely worth the rumbling stomach.

  • Ketchup Community

As you may have noticed, even from the first Baguio Musts Collection, there’s a lot of food tripping involved. After all, it’s a small quiet city, whose temperature invoke you to find hot gastronomic treats when there’s nothing much left to do at night.

Ketchup Community is your one-stop chill-out, tummy-filling spot. Right across the Wright Park, a stretch of food inventions and of classics is ready to satisfy you.

  • La Presa

Not much about the famed house, go here  for the old Baguio feel– intimate, natural, minimal. The road to this sitio will remind you why you love to go to Baguio in the 90s. There’s not much roof masking the mountains; a lot of greens; cool, chilly, fog-draped sky.
