After completed our wonderful journey via Palawan, we fly back to Manila and Carol is now leaving the team. However, thanks to Carol arrangement to have MJ and Max as our drivers for the next few days, mainly for our visit to world famous Banaue rice terrace. Due to the long distance drive and the road condition, we couldn't make it to Banaue in a day, hence our first stop was to have a day rest via Baguio, which name as the summer capital of the Philippines. It was a very big city which is approximately ~1500 meters above the sea level. It was a long drive from Manila, which took us nearly 6 hours.
Initially we don't have plan to wander around Baguio, hence we let MJ and Max to stop us for few tourism spot when we are there before we return to Carol hotel for our stay tonight.
