The Itogon Experience: Of Hot Spring, Hanging Bridge and Grilled Food

One of the resorts in Itogon Hot Springs
Why do people always look for something different from the usual? Like the contrary from the existing? When I was still in the lowland province, I certainly worry about the humidity and always complain it’s hot. And now I’m in Baguio, I was looking for something hotter than the place. When the weather is hot, we tend to look for cool things to eat, or cold places to visit. And when it’s cold, we look for something that can warm our bodies. Like a hot spring maybe? An hour away from the city is a town called Itogon, and it’s not just the hot spring of Itogon that makes it a tourist hot spot—it is always complimented with the experience, and an additive fun from the hanging bridge and of course, the grilled food.

Itogon Hot Springs: Tips and Guide

One of the resorts in the becoming popular Itogon Hot Springs in Benguet.
If you are in Manila, you most probably think of the beach when it comes to summer things, but if you live in the highlands like Baguio, the nearest you could think for a summer getaway means the hot springs. Well, if you are having fun with us and want more other than the hot springs, then that’s the time we get out of the highlands and go to the beach, the most recent of which we visited were Patar Beach in Bolinao and Ampere Beach in Dipaculao (which is very very far from Baguio, post soon). For the meantime, we decided to check out Itogon Hot Springs, after our friends told us that it was underway to development. It was more than a decade now the last time I visited a hot spring—the ‘recent’ I can remember was Maleluag Hot Spring in Mangatarem, Pangasinan (maleluag means “hot” in Panggalatok, dialect of the Pangasinense).

Bell Church: Baguio Version of the Temple

Bell Church is Baguio's version of the temple.
For the past years, I have never been to the so called Bell Church. This year around, I got a chance to visit this tourist spot, I must say, the version of Baguio when it comes to temple. It’s not a doubt that Baguio is indeed also rich in Chinese culture, and many Chinese people were already living in this city. As a matter of fact, Baguio City also celebrates the Spring Festival, or the Chinese New Year ala Kung Hei Fat Chai.

Strawberry Fields in the Philippines? Head to Benguet

Strawberry fruit in Strawberry Farm, La Trinidad, Benguet
If there’s one thing that makes Baguio distinct from other places in the Philippines, it’s strawberry. But did you know that strawberries are not actually grown in the City of Pines? Strawberry fields are located in the nearby province of Benguet. Not only strawberries are grown here, all the other highland veggies are also harvested in the province like lettuce, cabbage, and carrots.

The Overlooking—Tam-awan Village

Popular Cordilleran wood carvings in Tam-awan Village, Baguio City.

It was my second time this time to visit Tam-awan Village, another manmade park in the city of Baguio. The first time I went there was with another set of fellow bloggers. Tam-awan means a view point or an overlooking deck. It’s an uphill park with miniature of the different wooden houses in the Cordillera.
