Baguio: 2 Days 1 Night Itinerary

Here's a sample itinerary of what we did. We actually stayed there for 3 days but I'll just share the places we've seen on the first 2 days since the 3rd day was spent on watching the Panagbenga Float Parade. Prior to the trip, I made some internet research before deciding on what places to go to. Feel free to follow our itinerary on your next Baguio trip.

The first day was spent on touring my friend on the basic tourist spots of Baguio. Places me and my cousin has actually visited a number of times except for the Good Taste Restaurant.

Day 1
07:00 am:      Check in into your hotel/lodging house (we went to Benguet State University to follow up on the status of our reservation. BSU is located near Strawberry Farm, a 30 minute and P77 taxi drive from Victory Bus Liner Baguio Terminal)

08:00 am:      Breakfast at McDonalds beside BSU

08:00 pm:     Check in transient house near Lourdes Grotto

Note: We started to feel the heavy traffic on our way back to BSU. There were some miscommunication on our reservation and we're left with no room to stay but ate Jag of BSU was kind enough to look for a better lodging for us. Click here to read more of our first day of tour.
