Azalea Hotels & Residences Baguio did not only provide #TheDreys with a nice and cozy accommodation, but they also prepared a myriad of outdoor activities to make sure that we actually enjoyed our getaway.

Rediscovering Baguio – What to see, eat and do

The places to see and the delights one can eat in Baguio are endless. So, whether you decide to go to those common destination areas or the least visited ones, this city will always leave you in awe. Even if it was mostly raining during our trip, it most certainly didn’t stop us from rediscovering Baguio.

Tam-Awan Village

Tamawan Village cultivated a culture of its own. It is a venue for arts and culture that aims to enhance the appreciation of the Cordillera culture and history.Rediscovering Baguio - Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio

At Tam-awan Village, make sure to do the Eco Trail and enjoy nature.

Horseback Riding at Camp John Hay

Rediscovering Baguio - Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio

When I was younger, I dreamt of becoming an Equestrian but things changed and obviously did not become one. So, whenever I get the opportunity to ride a horse, I always make the most of it. I was actually surprised to see my kids enjoying horse riding as well. More so seeing my daughter leading our hour-long uphill/downhill trail at Kabadjo Forest at Camp John Hay without even checking if her guide was still following her. You can take the 30 minute or the 1 hour trail.

Camp John Hay Picnic Grounds

After horseback riding, you can have a picnic at Camp John Hay’s Picnic grounds. With a thicket of tall pine trees, some cool breeze and quiet surroundings, enjoying lunch with your family doesn’t get any better than this.

Valley of Colors – Stobosa, La Trinidad

Rediscovering Baguio - Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio

I was very happy to see these colorful houses up close on our way to the Strawberry Fields as I have seen this place a lot of times in pictures on the net. The community of Stonehill, Botiwtiw and Sadjap (or collectively called, STOBOSA) in Barangay Balili, La Trinidad, turned their concrete houses into works of art. The artists from Tam-awan were the ones who painted the houses using environment-friendly paints. Many foreign tourists stop by to take pictures — as did we, naturally.

Strawberry Fields, La Trinidad

Rediscovering Baguio - Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio

We were supposed to strawberry pick during our last day but when we arrived at the Strawberry Fields, we were informed that it was off-season. So, instead of heading back to Baguio City right away, we shopped for local products, bought strawberry ice cream, strawberry taho and hoarded fresh greens.

Rediscovering Baguio - Azalea Hotels and Residences BaguioRediscovering Baguio - Azalea Hotels and Residences BaguioI was surprised to discover that 3 big bags of lettuce consisting of romaine, iceberg and lollo rossa variants cost Php100 only.

Traveling is about discovery, that’s why I always tell my teens whenever we travel to always keep an open mind, to expect the unexpected and enjoy every single moment with welcome wonder and amazement.

Rediscovering Baguio with family made this trip all the more enjoyable.

It may sound cliché, but it is true that every moment spent with your loved ones is priceless. And moments like these will remain in my heart forever.


Thank you, Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio City for our wonderful 3D/2N Baguio stay, packed with fun activities. Rediscovering Baguio through your warm welcome, great accommodation, non-stop eating and wonderful activities were all totally unforgettable!
