Baguio has always been a go-to place for a quick rest and relaxation. If you simply want to cool down from the scorching heat in Manila, Baguio won’t disappoint. This region is also the home of wood arts and crafts. Choose from a good selection of Igorot textiles, beads, and carved wooden items. Take home a Bul-ul, a carved wooden figure that guards the rice crops of the people in Ifugao.
