Okay….so continuing on our travel diary, we woke up in the wee hours of the morning to prepare for our next itinerary and it’s my hubby’s birthday!
On our way to Tam-awan Village in Pinsao Proper, Baguio City. This place uniquely blends indigenous aesthetics and exquisite Corilleran craftsmanship with an artist’s concept for a village adapting to Baguio setting. Getting there is a little big tricky but certainly well worth the trip. On our case, we just rode FX as that’s the easiest way to go and this I guess is the common means of transportation there aside from the usual jeepneys and the fare is also cheap, flag-down rate is only 30Php (I hope it’s same here in Manila).
I know I still look sleepy though…I’m not used to waking up so early in the morning. You know that your there when you see the a high wall with an eye catching mural. You have to watch out for this and ask your taxi driver to stop there, in case the driver was expecting you to say so (parang jeep lang?). When you get there you just have to pay the entrance fee of 50Php and 30Php if you’re a studen, you just need to present your school I.D.
What you can do here is go for an Eco-Tour and you’ll see this wood sculptures along the way, it gives me the creeps though.
We really are huffing and puffing as we go along. We had to go slightly slippery trail as it has been raining every afternoon since we arrived. The trail was so steep, stony and slippery….get the picture? But we really enjoyed every bit of it. It’s really nice to be surrounded by nature once in a while and get a breath of fresh air away from the Manila pollution.
Yes I know…another creepy thing, but that’s art…not everybody can appreciate though.
Overall, the trip was fun and educational. More pics on the next post so stay tuned!
