A Creative City
On October 2017, Baguio was chosen as one of the 64 Creative Cities around the world. Apart from being a classic tourist destination because of its cool climate, Baguio has indeed always attracted art enthusiasts due to the preserved culture of the Cordillera, particularly on the field of crafts and folk arts.
Here are some museums and art havens in Baguio that showcase these uniqueness:
BenCab Museum is located in the foggy mountain of Asin. It features contemporary and Cordilleran art by the national artist Ben Cabrera. The four-level museum has a beautiful café at the lowest floor named after Sabel, who is the subject of almost every artwork. How romantic, isn’t it?
Tam-Awan Village is a live museum that also offers art and crafts demonstrations and workshops to its visitors. It focuses more on showcasing Cordilleran art, tradition and culture.
Mount Costa is the newest nature attraction opened in La Trinidad, Benguet. This features 100 species of flowers that are arranged into a whimsical garden that is truly Instagram-worthy. Bring out the Alice in you and delve into this Wonderland where nature and art meet to create magic.
