Baguio City is known as Philippine’s summer capital due to its natural cold weather. People depart from the city during summer days to escape the heat and stay in Baguio to enjoy the cozy weather.
There are several tourist spots in Baguio. Surely this is not my first time in Baguio neither will this be my last. The first time I visited Baguio was way back 2012. The second one was during the time we climbed Mt. Pulag together with my close buddies. This is actually my third time in Baguio.

Exhausted from the trip and getting ready for out Mt. Ulap trek the next day, we did not do much. We just enjoyed the weather and relaxed. We were also able to get to dine-in in one of the famous restaurants in Baguio, that is Cafe by the Ruins.
