Baguio City Overview

Baguio City is known as the Philippine's Summer Capital. This is a distinction given to it by the Philippine Commission on June 1, 1903. Baguio was incorporated as a chartered city by the Philippine Assembly on September 1, 1909. It rests at about 1,600 meters above sea level, which makes it a mile-high city.

In the early part of the 20th century Baguio was the rest & recreation capital of the American forces, who built Camp John Hay. The cool temperature (averaging 15-23 degrees centigrade), makes it ideal for the ubiquitous pine trees one sees by the roads leading to the city and all around.

Baguio is well known for its culture, tourism and festivals, educational institutions and for one of the official residences of the Philippine President.
