Baguio Transient Houses
We’re halfway through the cold month of January, and it’s almost February—we’re all nearing that time of year when the City of Pines gets to bloom literally… with the Panagbenga Festival! It’s during the month of February when the streets of Baguio City become colder, livelier, and more colorful than ever, as the whole city preps up for the annual flower festival.
If you’re planning to stay in the chilly City of Pines this February, you should know that room rates will spike up (because of the peak season, which usually lasts from the year-end to February, and summertime), and most hotels in Baguio might even be fully-booked already as we speak. But don’t lose hope. There are several alternative places to stay in, such as Baguio transient houses or transient rooms for rent.
Baguio transient houses rarely get fully-booked (because there’s a lot of them in Baguio!), and rates are definitely more affordable. So if you’ve ran out of rooms to book, or if you’re in a limited budget, or if you simply want to try staying in a Baguio transient home rather than a classy hotel, then read on, because we’ve made a list of transient houses in Baguio City just for you:
