Day Tour at Bontoc
The Provincial Capitol building in Bontoc is of American architecture, a sign of the travels of American missionaries in this part of the country in the early 1900's where they stayed for quite a long time.Be sure to check the Bontoc Village Museum, a good primer of Cordillera culture.No need to stay overnight in Bontoc if you havent enough time. Make it a sidetrip on the way to or from Sagada. Spare 2 hours for the tour within the town.

Taken on our way to Kiltepan Tower. There are a nice varieties of things to buy inside this place - their products are sturdy and very colorful. We saw many products when we were in Baguio a few days earlier and they are cheaper in Sagada.
