North Bound: Day 3

Click for Day 1 or 2.  Click here for photo gallery. For our last day at Baguio, we walked around the mini-forest beside The Manor, and snapped some pics! Then sadly, we already had to check out and head back to the road. For our last tourist attraction for the trip, we visited the BenCab Museum.

BenCab Museum Entrance

The BenCab museum is about a twenty-minute drive away from Camp John Hay, and houses the masterpieces of Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera, one of the National Artists of the Philippines. The museum also has artworks from various contemporary Filipino artists. I found out about the museum from travel websites such as TripAdvisor, and they really recommended to visit this place.

The museum has four floors with BenCab’s beautiful garden at the ground floor. The museum also has more than ten sections, ranging from paintings, to sculptures, to drawings and prints. The cool thing about the museum is that the entrance is at the 4th floor, then you have to keep on going down one floor to see the rest of the museum.

The museum visit has been worth it. I was able to get a good grasp of Philippine culture, and was able to admire the magnificent works of different Filipino artists. Afterwards, we ate at Cafe Sabel which was at the ground floor. The best part about the trip is that we got to meet and have a photo with the national artist himself, BenCab!!

The Baguio trip was really fun and exciting! It was a great way to spend the semestral break and as well as to bond with my family. Till my next trip!
