Baguio is definitely the go-to place for the holidays, and now with places like the Baguio Craft Brewery and cozy Airbnb staycation spots, there's more to do than ever. But do you remember going as a kid and doing all the tourist activities even though you're there almost every year? Here are five sure-fire things you can do to experience the classic Baguio:

1. Horseback Riding

There are a lot of places where you can do this, but one of the best is located at Camp John Hay. It’s perfect for little kids and adults alike. If you want to ride alone, you can tell it to the handler and find yourself dashing through the paths with cold wind blowing in your face.

3. Shopping at Mines View Park

From nice wool blankets to an abundance of souvenirs, Mines View has it all. If you went to Baguio for shopping, this is the best place to go. Get all you need from bargain clothes to unique knickknacks that can only be found in Baguio. There is no doubt you will spend a good chunk of your budget shopping here.

4. Exploring Burnham Park

If Manila has Luneta Park, Baguio has Burnham Park. Buy small souvenirs, have a picnic with your family, or take a boat ride with someone special. You can easily burn a day here if you want to spend some quality time with your loved ones.

5. Food Trip

Baguio is a mecca for foodies. The night life isn’t about clubs or partying but about exploring the city and trying the best array of food you can find. From the best Mongolian restaurant to extraordinary Chinese food, the true joy of discovering Baguio is stumbling upon a seemingly hole-in-the-wall restaurant and finding out how amazing it is and how you just want to come back again next year (even if you haven’t even left yet!). Try out Canto, O’Mai Khan, and Café by The Ruins.
