Baguio City is also known as the Summer Capital of the Philippines, of course you might already know that, but one thing that might interest you is that tourism flow, as i’ve noticed, is all year round, which means that influx of tourists does not only happen during specific months of the year. Yes, of course high influx of tourists still happens during the months of December to May.
The continuous flow of tourists in the City of Baguio may be attributed to the cold weather, warm people and exciting tourist destinations. It is because of these factors that many business establishments have adapted a set up that would cater to both locals and tourists.

Baguio Hotels? Baguio Transient House?
Of course you might be torn between the two choices unless you go with option 3, but really the dilemma is within these two. My family and I have tried staying at a Baguio Hotel and a Baguio Transient House, if your goal is convenience then a Baguio Hotel could be the best choice however if your priority is affordability then a Baguio Transient House might be your best bet. If i were to choose however, location is everything, it doesn’t matter if its a hotel or a transient house as long as it is located in a place where i can feel that i truly am in Baguio away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Because Serenity, Peace and Calmness and Communing with Nature is what truly defines Baguio City.
