It's summer time and the heat is on! What better way to escape the city heat than a few days vacation at the country's premier tourist destination with cool weather whole year round.

Baguio city is a prime tourist destination and aside from the cool weather, there are several highlights to see and things to do, and yes, the food trippers haven! Since it's a premier tourist destination only 6 to 7 hours bus ride or drive away from Manila, one must set aside some budget just like most tourist places.  Food is reasonably affordable, hotels are a bit costly, the cool weather is free!

Most visitors though have discovered a way to cut down some costs, and even with several hotels around the city, there still exist some shortage for a place to to stay. Enter the transient houses!

Complete with lounge, cable TV, wifi, kitchenette, bathroom at Baguio Traveller's House.

Transient houses are a good alternative to expensive hotels. Offering various types of accommodations that will suit your budget from rooms, apartments, condos, cabins, apartelles, condotels, to large houses that could accommodate big groups of holiday-makers.

From single travelers to excursionists, backpackers on a shoestring budget, flashpackers, families, groups and of course those seeking a luxurious place to stay. 
Most places have complete amenities - rooms with comfortable beds, pillows, warm blankets, others have their own receiving areas with cabled TV, Internet Wifi, equipped kitchen to cook your own.  
Some even offer meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner.

It's a home away from home!  Just pack your clothes (sometimes towels) and a few hours of travel. That's all it take to have a relaxing vacation in the city where the climate is cool all year round.
