Go Baguio! Your Complete Guide to Baguio City, Philippines

Design Your Own Tour of Baguio City

Baguio City is really easy to explore on your own, especially if you are bringing your own vehicle.

So I have created
modular tours based on the proximity of the visitor attractions to each other so you can save time and fuel while touring.

How different are these tour modules from the ones at Baguio Tour Itineraries? Well, those
are my itinerary suggestions based on the length of your stay in the Summer Capital of the Philippines. These, on the other hand, are based on the locations of the tourist spots.

The modules come in handy especially if the purpose of your visit is for business, or a convention, or just shopping, so you can save time and fuel by not crisscrossing the Summer Capital of the Philippines and choosing just those tourist spots that are most interesting to you.

Didn't bring a car? No Problem!

Taxis may be hired for the day or by the hour, and the driver will act as your guide. Usually costs about Php 250-300 per  hour for four (4) persons. Large groups can opt to hire a jeepney instead. About  Php1,000 - 2,000 per day (usually for 8 hours), depending on the distance traveled.

How to do this? Ask your hotel or inn to make the arrangements for you. Alternatively one can simply hail a cab  and negotiate the rates yourself. For jeepneys, it is best to go to the nearest loading station and ask the drivers there who is willing. It is best to do this the day before your tour.
