Doglas Baguio Dog picture

Look what we found in Baguio!

Just when I thought that I had made the rounds of the major tourist spots in Baguio, I learn from our last trip to the highlands that the city has a canine star that also draws in tourists and visitors. The minute you see his adorable self is also the minute you will decide to part with your money. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Baguio’s most famous dog, Doglas, where one shot will set your travel funds back.

*If you happen not to love dogs, I guess you will have an easier time saying ‘no’ to this kind of Baguio souvenir pic. You will save money but you my friend will not have an amazing pic to post in Facebook that is guaranteed to elicit ‘likes’ and comments like ‘wow!’ | ‘that is a huge dog’, | ‘that is a humongous dog! | What is its breed?’ hehe.

What’s the best thing about traveling? Aside from the experiences and the memories that will remain with you for life, it’s food and souvenirs!

Bell Church Baguio – Chinese Temple in The Summer Capital

Baguio Tourist Spot - Dragon in Bell Church

This 3D/2N trip to Baguio has been full of surprises and new discoveries like learning that the City of Pines has a Chinese Temple – the Bell Church Baguio. Right after our short visit to La Trinidad Strawberry Farm, we decided to go to this religious center, our last stop for our cheap Day 2 Baguio Tour.  Its address is Magsaysay Avenue just before the border between Baguio City and La Trinidad Benguet.

I was all smiles when we got off the jeepney and saw the welcome arch nearest the road. Without a doubt in my mind, I said that this was a temple and shrine dedicated for Taoism. Now that I am writing this post, I have to admit I really am not sure what kind of temple Bell Church is. I don’t know what makes a Buddhist Temple different from a Taoist Temple, so I’ll just refer to Bell Church as a Chinese Temple. If you know what religion this church belongs to or know about its history, please share it with us by leaving a comment below. We will really appreciate it. =)

Diplomat Hotel Baguio Ruins: Spooky Haunting Turned Prayer Mountain in Dominican Hill

Diplomat Hotel Baguio ruins

There is another side to Baguio, one that may have escaped the radar of most tourists especially those from far away provinces of Visayas and Mindanao, that side is dark, eerie and creepy.  It’s a world’s apart from the normal expectation of wonderful sites and enjoyable highland temperature. This side attracts a different kind of tourists and explorers too, appealing more to those who are brave and those who think themselves brave for wanting to face the unknown, the spirits of the other world. Those who tempt fate by searching for Not Like Ours, for souls trap in this world.

Brave The Cold Winds – A Baguio Vacation Chronicle

Just Arrrived for Baguio DIY City Tour

It’s almost a sure thing the moment you get on a bus for a long ride, the music that the driver plays will include the repertoire of slow rocks from Hotel California to Total Eclipse of the Heart to pop songs like Got To Believe in Magic. Righty right? Hehe

So I was expecting to be lulled to semi-sleep while billboard hits from years gone past plays on. Lol, I wasn’t wrong on the era of the music that played on the Dagupan Bus Line we took from Cubao to Baguio, what I was wrong though were my prediction of the song list.
