The summer capital of the Philippines, Baguio is a refreshing resort in the mountains. Surrounded by regal pines, this university town has long been a destination for those looking to escape the heat and experience an exotic blend of highland and lowland cultures. As they pass the mountainous region, Baguio flights reveal to tourists just why this city is nicknamed the "City of Pines." However, unless you contract a private plane, it's not possible to land in Baguio itself at the Loakan Airport (BAG), though commercial service has come in and out of existence in the past and it may well be revived in the future. For now, those destined for the pine-covered hills of Baguio should fly into Clark Airport (CRK), 103 miles away, or Manila's Ninoy International Airport (MNL), 161 miles away.
Clark Airport is one of the biggest in Asia. Renting a car and getting a taxi to reach any of the hotels in Baguio are definite options, but the airport is far enough from Baguio that buses may present a more reasonable option than taxis. Take a shuttle from CRK to Dau Bus Terminal, where you can catch a bus to Baguio. The same is true if you're coming from the Ninoy International Airport in Manila: You can rent a car, but it might be a bit far to take a taxi. Instead, simply catch a taxi to the Victory Liner Bus Terminal in Pasay, where you can find a bus headed to Baguio.
The City of Pines is awe-inspiring, and not just for its landscapes. Locals are celebrated for their carving and weaving skills, and you can browse their one-of-a-kind wares at the market downtown.
