Baguio City's cold weather, breathtaking views, old-world charm, delectable food offerings, an array of scenic attractions and endless things to do are just some of the reasons why it has always been one of the top tourist destinations in the country. It is also one of my favorite destinations in the Philippines whenever I just feel like I wanna "escape" the busy Metropolis or even for just a quick weekend getaway. That is why, whenever I have the chance to visit the City of Pines, I always grab the opportunity, pack my bag and just go.
It been almost a year since I last visited Baguio City. Just last week, I am back in Baguio through the invitation of Victory Liner to try their new Online Booking Service. Traveling by bus from Manila to Baguio City has never been as convenient and comfortable. This new value-added service provides passengers the convenience of booking their bus tickets in advance. Let's me share to you how.
