    Best to go when there's an event or tourist seasons like holy week. Get there by taxi, around P90 from town, w traffic. Also a Jeep route, but forgot what it's called. On regular days, the "village" is dead.

    Just don't go here when the fog is thick, there's supposedly a great view of a part of the South China Sea and a river on the viewing deck and there's supposedly a bit more hike up the side of the mountain. Nonetheless, it's a short but very informative tour about tribal art, history, architecture, culture and traditions. Plus you can get to bring home some goods made by the tribes at their souvenir shop.

    Best place for people with love for art. Affordable place to be. It's a combination of art love and love for nature.

    In short there really wasn't much at all to see and do. The 2nd view deck also has no views and no deck. It is just an overgrown loop track with nothing much to see. There are much better tourist destinations to see in Ph than here. Not worth the visit IMO.

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
