I have been living in Baguio for more than 10 years, and I must say there are a lot more positive aspects than negative ones. The people are among the nicest you’ll ever meet, and the city is rich in culture. There are many historical places to visit, and the chilly air, especially during the night, is a plus. The only drawback of living here is the traffic, and the city is quite overpopulated.
