How to Go to Baguio Tourist Attractions: Session Road to Mines View Park


How to go to Baguio Cathedral from Bus Terminal:
If you happened to ride on a Genesis Bus/Dagupan Bus/Saulog Bus and dropped off along Gov. Pack Road, all you have to do is to walk your way to Session Road (marker is the Police Station), cross the street until you see the Cathedral. Baguio Cathedral is near upper Session Road and Post Office Loop. If you rode on a Victory Liner Bus (air-con) and dropped off at Victory Liner terminal in Engineer’s Hill, it is better to ride a taxi to the church. Or you can walk your way from Utility Road to Session Road, walk straight until you reach the Circle (roundabout in Session Road), walk a bit until you reach the Cathedral.

It was devastated in 1945 and was rehabilitated two years after. Now, Baguio’s The Mansion is a rest house of the President of the Philippines. The Wright Park on the other hand is park developed in honor of Governor General Luke E. Wright.

The Baguio Cathedral

Baguio Cathedral

The church of Our Lady of the Atonement or commonly known as the Baguio Cathedral, is an old church constructed at the middle part of Session Road. It was established through a catholic mission by missionaries of CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae) from Belgium in 1907. The Baguio Cathedral became an evacuation center during the Second World War thus saving thousands of lives. Now, the Baguio Cathedral serves as a worship place for Christian communities living in Baguio City. Its preserved architecture also paved its way to becoming one of the must see landmarks of Baguio. It is also one of the many unique churches of the Philippines because of its distinct pinky rose color as an overall exterior design aside from its two towers which is similar to an old castle.

Baguio Day Tours (Destinations for Baguio Tour)

Baguio tour
Mines View Park--one of the many Baguio City tourist spots for an ideal Baguio tour.

Many people want to travel to Baguio and have their own Baguio tour but not everyone knows what exactly the Baguio tourist spots are and how to get there. Basically, people know that Burnham Park is located in Baguio but not all people know that Baguio Burnham Park is located near Session Road, or the bus terminal and they can actually do trips without riding a cab. People’s only resort to touring every Baguio tourist spot is hiring a cab and spend big bucks which they must not be spending. And for those who are on a tight budget, they limit the number of Baguio tourist destinations they visit. Again, if you are yet to plan your very own Baguio day tour (or day and night tours), you have to set this in mind—touring Baguio is NOT expensive (as to what other people know). From Manila excluding the round trip bus fare and accommodation, P1000 is already enough to visit most of the tourist attractions in Baguio plus eat at one of the best Baguio restaurants plus buy souvenirs and pasalubong for two persons!
