Last week, I had the opportunity to accompany my good friend and “Brother” from Turkey, Mustafa Ince on a road trip to the Northern parts of the Philippines. Our first destination, The Hundred Island in Alaminos, Pangasinan. It was also my first time to visit this amazing cluster of islands and the experience was just unforgettable. A highly recommended place to visit especially for tourists who are itchy to see the many beautiful islands in the Philippines.
Our second stop, Baguio, also known as the city of pines. We headed to Mount Santo Tomas, a point in Baguio where one could see the entire city. Best way to go there is to bring your own car with a local guide. To get to the peak it would take about 45mins. The view is just phenomenon.
During our stay in Baguio, we stayed at Villa Cordillera. Away from the city’s noise and pollution. The kind of accommodation suited for people looking for a more peaceful stay in Baguio.
Accommodations: Villa Cordillera – Highly recommended by LonelyPlanet Philippines; perched in the midst of pine trees, misty mornings, views the fog cloaked mountains of the Cordillera, where sights and sounds of nature call into the weary traveller for a warm and relaxing stay.
