Weather & road conditions. . . ?

by yokarin

Does anyone know what the weather's like right now, in Baguio and in the towns on the way? I'm asking because my sched suddenly cleared up, and the weather in Manila has been ok for 2 days, and my family and I want to head up to Baguio, but I'm still apprehensive after hearing of the recent tragic deaths caused by Baguio landslides. I'm aware that these accidents occurred far from the travel routes, but I'd still like to hear about the weather and road conditions now.

I'd really appreciate immediate (but reliable) replies on this, as we're considering going up tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.

weather is good for the past two days including today and so far i think we're gonna have the same thing for tomorrow...cloudless skies...

please do take the kennon road route if you're not commuting...

Re: Weather & road conditions. . . ?

Actually, if ever we'll push through, we'll just be going by bus, so it's going to be Marcos Highway, no choice.

May I ask why you recommend Kennon over Marcos HW? Because in recent years, I've consistently heard that Marcos HW is the safest choice. Does it have anything to do with the rainy weather in the past weeks? Are there weak/dangerous parts in Marcos HW?

Thanks for the prompt reply. Ü

If buses are running to and from Baguio, I think there is no issue.

Happy travels

busses are not allowed in the kennon road. If you have private transport, via kennon road is the shortest and less hassle with regards traffic and vehicle stress. The big earthquake of 1991 have made major cracks on the mountain side that landslides or rockfalls may be problem during heavy downpour.

Marcos highway is usually all weather, and safer when its raining. But its long upward gradient is a punishment for the vehicles using it. Since all trucks and buses from the south are forced to use Marcos highway, its a pain to overtake them in the upward climb towards Baguio. Most of the major bus companies plying this route have reliable busses, so its not much of a problem. Victory liner almost have a 24 hr on the hour trips between Baguio and manila, and are generally reliable. They do need reservation for their aircon trips.

Thanks very much to everyone who replied! If not for your assurances (that going up would be ok), there was a chance we wouldn't have pushed through.

We just got back this evening from Baguio and we had a great time. It hardly rained while we were there, except for yesterday afternoon when the rain just suddenly poured (in buckets!) and soon turned into hail (raining ice!). So even though it messed up our plans for going around yesterday, it was still quite an experience!

Anyway, thanks again, guys! Ü

Things to bring

by JaneCajuguiran

Travel light. If you come from a cold place, baguio won't be too cold for you. But if you're like me, who comes from a tropical country, then definitely cold during the "ber" months until about mid feb. But after that, a light jacket will do during the nighttime. pants and tees are the best things to bring except when you want to go swimming in asin (a hot spring) or have dinner at a fancy resto. almost everything you'll need is available at the local grocery. pack your digicam and videocam. They'll come in handy for storing memories which you'll have plenty of in baguio. There are places that are still breathtaking. A good mosquito repellant and a sunblock will give you a lot of protection from all the exploring you'll be doing.

Wright Park

by Travel2write

named after the architect who designed the city, features a shallow elongated rectangular body of water known as the "Pool of Pines." At one end, there is a circle where visitors can go horseback-riding.

Some other frequently-visited spots in the city include the Lourdes Grotto, Teacher's Camp, the Bell Church, Lion's Head, and the public market, a favorite place for tourists looking for souvenirs.

Victory Liner

by labyrnth29

Victory liner bus co is one of the top bus company in the metro that takes passenger from Cubao (aurora ave) to Baguio City. They even have the express bus which guarantees 5 hours travel time from Manila to Baguio (normal travel time takes about 7-8 hours depending on the traffic).

Still serving quality Chinese food in Baguio!

by thescene about The Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl located in fromt of Burnham Park has been an icon of Baguio for many years. Me and my family would always find the time to eat here everytime we would make the six hour trip to the city of pines. After which we would go to Burnham Park or Camp John Hay to continue our adventure.

On this trip to Baguio, the Rose Bowl was our first stop for a late lunch. Getting a parking spot was quite difficult so be ready for that. Arriving there at around 2 PM I expected the place to be at worst half filled. Much to my surprise it was full and it took a few minutes for us to get a table such is the popularity of this place. I was able to eat some corn soup, fried rice, fried chicken, pansit, squid. As expected the food was excellent and delicious. The food was hot and seemed newly prepared. The pricing of the food was reasonable considering that servings were quite large. Overall it was a pleasant experience and remains to be one of Baguio's best restaurants.
