Baguio: Summer Capital of the Philippines

Known as the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio City has grown to be a highly urbanized city. Situated in the province of Benguet in northern Luzon, the city is located approximately six hours by land from Manila, the nation's capital. Constantly filled with the fresh scent of pine, the city of Baguio is a popular summer getaway for people residing all over the country. As a melting pot for culture and education, Baguio boasts of a city rich in culture and resources. This has led to the rapid urbanization of the city and the swift development of business potential. The most commonly spoken dialect in the city is Ilocano followed by Filipino and English, which are both commonly spoken and understood by most residents.

The city is accessible by land and sea travel. By land, Baguio is accessible through three national roads, specifically the Quirino Highway, Kennon Road, and Marcos Highway. By air the city is accessible through the Loakan Airport which is the only airport serving the general airway. This airport is serviced by Philippine Airlines and Zest Airways. However, due to the limited size of the runway, the airport is classified as a minor domestic airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines. Communications facilities in the city are also well-developed.

The city is rich in human capital, an impressive 99% of the population being literate. The city serves as a center for tourism, education, finance, industry, and government in its region. Most of the city's industry is based on tourism and education, with more than eight colleges and universities and schools. Students from the northern area of Luzon go mostly to Baguio to study, making up almost half of the population. This makes the city a very good place to source fresh talent and a skilled workforce.

Some of Baguio's most popular products include ube jams, strawberry preserves, peanut brittle, and raisin bread. Some of the most popular tourist attractions in the city include the Balatoc underground mines, horse trail rides, Wright Park, and Camp John Hay. The city is in its coldest in the month of January and is also one of the best places in the country to get fresh strawberries.
