A Showcase of Igorot's Way of Life Dec 15, 2014
While in Baguio, paying a visit to Tam-awan Village is really a must if you want to know more of the culture, the customs and traditions of Igorot people of the Cordillera region. The village is an experience by itself because the visitor can stay and occupy those authentic Igorot houses of their choice for them to experience a village life.

The village gallery displays different paintings, woodcarvings, and other craftsmanship truly depicting the lives of the natives.

The trek to the top of the hill is really an experience to behold. The view from the top is really amazing.

Tam-awan has also become the venue for exhibits, workshops and cultural shows, giving the visitors a deeper understanding on the heritage of the Cordillera people.

The entrance fee that you will pay for is really worth for the attractions and experience you can get.

Dream of an Ifugao village Apr 10, 2003
Tam-Awan is an Ifugao village created by an artist (BenCab) for artists and aficionados. The traditional layout and the dozen or so re-constructed huts made of original materials make for a replica of an Ifugao village that almost makes one feel as if being in an actual one in the Cordilleras (if it were an artist's haven). Tam-Awan has regular exhibits by artists in its very own art gallery. I'm told that workshops, livelihood and crafts demonstrations are also held there by the artists themselves.

Some of the huts are available for sleeping. Just don't forget to order breakfast for the next day! You can even arrange for a bonfire, probably at the dap-ay (a traditional meeting place for the village elders). I just went there for a daytrip upon reading an article on it from the architectural magazine Bluprint, and did not regret it. I might even go back just to experience staying overnight at one of the huts.
