Boating or Strolling

by limledi

Burnham Park has a small artificial lake in the middle of town. It is named after Daniel H. Burnham, the town planner of Baguio. There are boats for hire, a children's playground and an orchidarium (across from the Benguet Pine Tourist Inn). Be careful at night, as people have been attacked here.

Travel from Olongapo Zambales to Baguio City

by henkvan

Hi all, Although I have been to Baguio before I have always flown there from Manila. This time I plan to take a land trip starting at Olongapo, Zambales. Presumably one would travel to San Fernando and then head north??
Can anyone enlighten me as to bus terminals, best bus etc , which way they travel and how long it takes to travel by bus from Olongapo to Baguio. Any tips always appreciated. Thanks and a happy Christmas and prosperous 2010 and the years beyond to all. Cheers, Henk

Re: Travel from Olongapo Zambales to Baguio City

by asianbelle

As I know, there are 2 bus lines that service Olongapo-Baguio route: Victory Liner and Saulog Transit. They have direct trips (I think) every hour. I'm not familiar with Saulog's terminal in Olongapo, but Victory is near the roundabout --- landmark is Chowking fast food. Personally, I would recommend Victory, more comfortable.

They normally take the Dinalupihan-San Fernando-NLEX-Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union (Marcos highway) route or travel time of approximately 6-7 hours. However, with SCTex or Subic-Clark-Tarlac expressway in operation, it's possible that there are "express trips" that will skip Dinalupihan and San Fernando; instead will take SCTex cutting travel time by 1-1.5 hours.

Alternatively, but will take 2 transfers, you can take Victory from Olongapo bound to Alaminos or Dagupan and from there take another Victory to Baguio. I guess travel time is also about 6-7 hours though the scenery is more rural.

the best way will be to take the victory liner direct bus from olongapo via tarlac to bagiuo. Its not as frequent as the manila baguio run, but it also has night, midnight and dawn trips. I would recommend the midnight or the dawn trip as it saves you a lot of time than if you take the daytime trip because of the traffic.

Travel Tips for Baguio

Riding the jeepneys

by joiwatani

Like many other cities and places in the Philippines, taking the jeepney as the mode of transportation is basically part of the lives of the local residents. Many more affluent families though have their own cars driven by their own salaried drivers.

The jeepneys usually pass through Session Road, Magsaysay Avenue or Bonifacio Street to cater to most of their passengers who are university students from St. Louis University, University of Baguio, Baguio Colleges Foundation, Baguio Central University and University of the Philippines. However, some jeepneys just loop around the side of Burnham Park.

When taking the jeepney, you have to flag them down and the driver will stop. You say "Para, Mama!" ("Para" means stop and "Mama" means Mister or Sir!" (very complicated to explain).

The jeepney driver will stop to the most convenient and safest place after you said "Para, Mama!"

When paying your fare, make sure to give the exact change and pass it to the next passenger who will give it to the driver.

Make sure to pay before you say "Para, Mama!" so the driver know that it was you who paid!

I am not really sure how the jeepney driver can memorize all those passengers who paid and those who didn't. It's probably through years of experience as a jeepney driver.

Some jeepney drivers are driving fast and they don't follow lanes. This causes a lot of traffic but it is just part of the culture of the jeepney drivers.

Botanical Garden

by namiewa

Oh my we go to this place in hurry, we drop by from buying some present like "ube jam, etc." and its already afternoon plus cloudy. Haven't really see the whole place inside coz it start raining. We took some picture with this people but my point is that to take a best shot of the Botanical but this people running so fast to take a picture with us and the funny thing is that we pay even though we dont asked them to take a picture with me. We pay 150 for all of them "funny but i found them cute" so after it we run inside to look and took some pictures.

Don't buy at the Mines View Park for souvenirs!!!

by joiwatani about Most shops

Okay if you don't have time to shop around at the Magsaysay Market(close to Session Road), then buy your souvenirs at Mines View Park. However, you will save a lot of money if you shop at the back of the market at Magsaysay Avenue. Just get inside the market and you can see an array of souvenirs from baskets, handwoven clothes, t-shirts, nuts, wood works, etc. There are so many stores there that each and everyone compete with each other. When you buy one, try to haggle and bargain first. This is like the night market in Italy that every seller tells you almost double the price of the item. So, when they tell you it's two hundred pesos for a souvenir, make sure to cut the price in half and start bargaining from there.

Don't be fooled around because the item you are buying for can be found in many stores. There are also other stores at the Maharlika Building. Bargain half of the price the vendor gave you and start from there!

Choco-Late

by jazu about Cocho-Late de Batirol

The resto has a very nice ambiance. Good for a cozy cool morning meal with hot choco and a good book . Service is not that good though. You have to wait almost about 20 minutes before your food is served. To ease the wait, the resto gives their patrons a cup of their house specialty, the chocolate de batirol. They serve filipino dishes for breakfast, lunch and snacks. their hot choco, prepared in the native way is the restos specialty, great for baguio's cold climate.
