Philippines: Baguio

Baguio was our first stop out of Manila. Located at 1500 meters above sea level, it is known as the "summer capital of the Philippines." In terms of sight seeing, it's nothing special. But it is one of the more livable places I visited in the Philippines. There is a large college population, so it's got a lively feel to it. Session Road has a lot of good of restaurants. There is an SM Mall, with a variety of fast food joints. There's also a large open market in the center of town as well. Outside of town, Camp John Hay has been turned into a high end tourist destination, with golf courses and luxury resorts. And being located in the mountains, there is a large array of hikes one can partake in.
