Tam-Awan Village

After enjoying a sumptuous lunch, my Manila-based friend said he would go back to Manila for an important family event. I opted to stay so I could see more of Baguio.

We parted ways at the bus terminal, where he dropped us off. It was the 23rd of December and the place was teeming with people buying tickets for Manila. The lines were endless! I actually thought I wouldn’t be able to buy a ticket and would be stuck in Baguio for the holidays as there was a post about all buses being fully booked on the 24th. Good thing they offered more seats later. Whew!

Afterwards, my Baguio-based friend and I went to Tam-Awan Village. Tam-Awan means a vantage point and is a haven for Baguio artists and their work of art. It was a very pretty place and I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of it.

At the entrance, there’s this carabao. Cool.

And a signage that enabled guests to know where to go and what to see.

It had galleries too where various works of art were displayed. Taking of pictures was strictly prohibited but I did manage to take two photos, with permission of course.

There were huts too where guests could actually check-in. Interesting.

In doing the eco-walk, one would find some art pieces like the pictures below.

I love this bamboo bridge. And contrary to my initial thought of it being fragile, it was actually sturdy as even two people could cross it at the same time.

Tam-Awan Village is located in 366-C Pinsao Proper, 2600 Baguio City. You may contact them through (074) 446-2949 / (074) 442-5551. For more details, please visit their official website at http://www.tamawanvillage.com/index.php.


  1. that's too beautiful, i love nipa huts! we have one in our provincial home, overlooking the sea instead of mountains.

  2. Lucky you! Our house in the province is in a developed area so I can only see houses. My grandma's house though is by the river and near the beach. ***Sigh*** I miss home.
