North Bound: Day 2

Click to check out our Day 1ย or Day 3 at Baguio. Click here for photo gallery. On to day 2. I woke up really early and decided to get out to the balcony to enjoy the fresh morning air and as well as to admire the magnificent view of the garden of The Manor. Afterwards, we met up with our relatives again at Baguio Country Club for breakfast.

Baguio Country Club had a really nice style and is somehow more modern than The Manor. We had a buffet breakfast, and there were lots of choices to choose from, with a mix of both foreign and local meals. We also had a table overlooking the vast golf course of the club.

After breakfast, we headed to the Lourdes Grotto, where we can see the image of Mama Mary as the Lady of Lourdes. It was a 252-step climb to reach the top of the Grotto, and once you get up there, you can see the statue of the Lady of Lourdes, and overlook the beautiful scenery of Baguio when you look behind.

After that, my family and my relatives had to part ways because they already had to go home so it was just me and my parents then. We visited The Mansion, the place where our President stays every time he is in Baguio.

Then we went to Wright Park which has a horse track! I went horseback riding while my parents walked around the park.

For the last destination of the day, we went to Mines View Park which is the best place to admire the breathtaking view of the city…

Then we went back to the hotel. Since our second day at Baguio was October 31, it was Halloween! We went to the Halloween dinner buffet at The Manor, and we were able to try the delicious Halloween treats!

After a whole day of walking and climbing (and eating!), we were really exhausted, but it was really worth it because we were able to see the different tourist attractions that Baguio has to offer.

  1. 252 steps, that is a lot of steps but worth it I am sure. The pictures you’ve shared are so awesome making me jealous and wanting to visit one day.

  2. I’ve never really known much about the Philippines, so it’s lovely to read and see more of the country through your trips. That’s some number of steps to go up, but I bet the view was gorgeous
