The dilapidated Diplomat Hotel was a spooky part of our itinerary. The grunge texture of the abandoned structure is witness to its tragic past. As you'll walk through halls you can just imagine your hair raise as you try to take each other's portraits in the hopes of capturing a spirit on film. Urban legend has it that nuns were beheaded during the onset of the War.
Not just your ordinary university town, Baguio is like an enchanted princess all clad in gems as flowers. Romantic parks abound with spectacular panoramic views that is sure to leave you breathless. The city has become touristy, yes, but never spoiled. It continues to be a quaint town uphill nestled in the middle of mountain ranges where the cool air gushes around and invigorates locals and the allured visitors alike. Record low temperatures could reach 6 degrees Celcius that is why homes, malls, hotels, etc. need not place air conditioning and instead use large fans for circulation.
This highly-urbanized yet art-nurturing city comes alive when the Panagbenga festivities drums its beats, when city dwellers take that long drive to seek refuge during the Holy Week and when the Christmas season delights everyone in merry making.
With some land areas designed to grow fresh organic crops and healthy tangy blood red strawberries that you can pick yourself, it has been a haven for people seeking nutritious food and novel pasalubong delicacies as well.
If you can't go there any time soon then enjoy these snaps in the meantime...
