Camp John Hay This former rest and recreation facility of the U.S. Armed Forces is older than the city itself. For almost the whole of the 20th century it is what made Baguio City in the Philippines "Little America."In 1903 Camp John Hay was designed for the exclusive use of the US Military and Department of Defense in the Far East. This U.S. base, named after U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt's Secretary of State, was used by the Japanese as a concentration camp for American and British soldiers during WWII. It was also used as their military headquarters when General Yamashita moved up north from Manila towards the end of the Japanese Occupation of the Philippines.This 690-hectare property was finally turned over to the Philippines 1991 upon the expiration of the R.P.-U.S. Bases Agreement. From 1991 to 1997, Filipinos ran the former U.S. Air Force recreational facility for the first time as a resort, operating all the popular and familiar spots as close to the originals as possible: 19th Tee, Halfway House, Mile-Hi, Lone Star, Main Club, the Scout Hill Snack Bar and the Bakery.
Burnham Park The 'mother of all parks' in the Summer Capital of the Philippines, almost as familiar to Filipinos as Luneta Park in Manila is, all other developments like the city's business center Session Road,Baguio Cathedral, City Hall, and the hugely popular Baguio City Market were built around Burnham Park.
Tam-awan Village is one of Baguio City's "newer" attractions, having been created only in 1998 by the Chanum Foundation.Located at the outskirts of the city, it is an artists colony set amid a charming collection of Ifugao and Kalinga huts. Getting there may be a little tricky but certainly well worth the trip.
Baguio Cityprobably has the most visitor attractions clustered in a relatively small area compared to other tourist destinations in the Philippines. The most popular tourist attractions are located near each other, on the East and South sides, although there are a few near the residential areas.
