DIY Baguio City Tour Itinerary

If you’re looking for a travel agency to take you around Baguio city and it’s tourist spots, I advise to either do it yourself like a local, or if there’s so many of you, just rent a van with a driver!

Visiting the top tourist spots in Baguio is just easy and not that pricey. You’ll also love to walk if it’s just few blocks away because it will not be so hot and tiring to walk – just make sure you have a comfortable shoes on.

So if you’re up for doing it yourself – because you’ll find it hard to hire a travel agency to book a tour here – then check out my DIY Baguio city tour itinerary. But please note, that these are all just estimated times since some of you may like to spend more time in an area, or less, and I didn’t track my time that much.

  • 5:00 am – ETA in Baguio Terminal
  • 5:10 am – Drop off bags at the Paladin hotel (no check in yet)
  • 5:30 am – Breakfast at Good Taste (Just 2 blocks from the hotel – take your time)
  • 7:30 am – ETA in Botanical Garden (try their Strawberry Taho there!)
  • 10:00 am – The Mansion
  • 11:00 am – Wright Park (Just in front of the Mansion)
  • 12:00 am – Ketchup Food Community (We ate at Canto)
  • 1:00 pm – Mines View Park
  • 2:30 pm – Check in at the hotel
We slept after that and didn’t go out the entire night because we’re so tired with the road trip, we didn’t sleep well because we left Cebu at 12AM, and as a Cebu blogger who's not used with long hours road trip, this is tiring for me. But here are the other tourist spots that you may like to visit.
  • Good Shepherd Convent – locals said they have the best Ube Jam. You can drop by there going or leaving Mines View Park.
  • Philippine Military Academy – we actually didn’t include this on this day because we’re planning to visit it after the Camp John Hay but were not able to. 
  • The Bell Church – is like the Taoist temple of Cebu, but it’s further from the main City, I suggest to visit this when you’re on your way back or going to the Baguio strawberry farm.
  • Tam-Awan Village – it’s not that far away from the city, but you can drop by this if you’re coming back to the city from the Strawberry farm. We did drop by but our taxi driver was not willing to wait and we didn’t see any other transportation passing by.
  • Diplomat Hotel – was not interested of this because I hate horror stuff.
  • SM City Baguio – yes, there are a lot of SM malls in the Philippines but this mall is open. Still air-conditioned but outside the boutiques is just open.
  • Lions head – we were looking for this but wasn’t able to find it. 
I actually have a vlog (video blog) about this day, so if you want a more interactive and visual proof what it’s like to tour around Baguio City, then watch it! At least you’ll be familiar with everything and at least you get an idea.
