With Baguio’s holiday-perfect pine trees and Boracay’s cold weather breeze, it’s not a surprise that they’re destination favorites. Here, we list down some of the places that you might want to check out this Yuletide season.
1. Camp John Hay

It may not snow in the Philippines, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Christmas in front of a warm fire. Ensconce yourself at one of the log cabins at Camp John Hay with steaming mugs of hot chocolate in hand in the company of close friends and family.
2. La Trinidad Strawberry Festival
Strictly speaking, this strawberry farm is not in Baguio but Benguet (nor is it the peak season for strawberries), but seeing as you’re already so close to La Trinidad, it would be a shame not to drop by to for something to munch on over the holidays.
3. Baguio Country Club Christmas Village
Enjoy a white Christmas as soon as you step inside this lovely Christmas village. Their man-made snow is sure to be a hit with kids and kids-at-heart.
4. The District

Want to try something that’s a little bit different this Christmas? Spend the holidays near the beach. After island-hopping with your family, relax at The District and enjoy a sumptuous Filipino buffet while being serenaded with the most heart-warming Christmas songs.
5. Discovery Shores
Enjoy sumptuous Christmas feasts at Discovery Shores this season. From pumpkin bisques to holiday turkey—you won’t regret a single calorie.
