About Baguio City
The Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) is the Philippines’ only land-locked region. It is consisted of the provinces of Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province and Baguio City (the regional center). The Cordillera region encompasses most of the areas within the Cordillera Central mountain range of Luzon, the largest range in the country. This region is home to numerous indigenous tribes collectively called the Igorot.

SM City Baguio
I can confidently say that SM City Baguio is one of the best-designed SM malls. We were all so used to the boring boxes back then and this mall is actually the first that went out of the box. You can really see that much thought has been poured on the design and construction of the mall.
Philippine Military Academy
First stop for tourists visiting the PMA would be the Relics Point where vintage tanks, historical military weapons and artillery can be found. From the Philippine Military Academy in Loakan, we drove straight to The Mansion. It took us 15 minutes to get there.The Mansion was built in 1908 for governor-generals of the United States. It was destroyed in 1945 during the Battle for the Liberation of the Philippines. The government of the Republic of the Philippines later rebuilt and improved the structure in 1947. Since then, it has become the official summer residence of the President of the Philippines.
Mines View Park
Mines View Park is one of the popular destinations for tourists in Baguio City. It’s a tourist-trap. Here is the view from the Observation Deck of what used to be gold and copper mines. But now, it’s mostly houses. No offense, but it should be renamed to House-View Park. Nonetheless, the surrounding mountains are still lovely.
