    BAGUIO CITY The Summer Capital of the Philippines

    I am going on a trip to Baguio tomorrow with the whole family and my two housemates. Excited and busy.

    Ever been to Baguio? I have been there twice but first time with the whole family.

    Looking forward to the 5-hour drive. It is so hot in Manila so we are looking forward to the 3 days stay!

    I spent about ten days there a few years ago - in the winter. It was cold and great. They also had college bars with great live bands and vocalists. It's not as hot down here in Batangas as in Manila, but I still envy you. Have a great time!

    ^^Been going there for years. If I leave my house at 10 AM, I'm there for lunch if I catch the ferry schedule right. And good, safe parking for the car at the ferry point.

    Yes Rose, I've been to Baguio. A very nice laid back place. However, the strongest memory I have is of the first hotel I checked out when I got off the rabbit bus. Can't remember the name of the place but it was the absolute dirtiest place I have ever seen. And yet above the hotels entrance was a sign:

    Blabla Hotel, your home away from home.

    As my German friend commented :

    " If my home was like that I'd stay away from home "

    Ah well, gusto kong pupunta sa Manila pero wala na akong pera.

    PS . Dont forget the pictures and a full report.

    We got there about 4AM after driving all night, and checked into this small hotel just to try to get a few hours sleep before meeting up with our friends. The hotel (name also not remembered) ranks among the worst I have ever stayed in - I have stayed in better places in Bangladesh. It was a total dive. Got out of there about 9AM and met up with our friends, who gave us the keys to their friend's beautiful condo (Ten days for FREE). So the trip was great, but until reading the post above^^, I had forgotten totally how grim our first hotel was.....

    You're trying to insert the entire Imageshack page as an image, so it won't work. Is there a non-Australian man nearby who can help you?
