A Visit To Tam-awan Village

During our 5 day vacation in Baguio last Christmas, hubby and I had the chance to visit one of Baguio's tourist attractions called Tam-awan Village. Hubby and I had been to almost all the tourist spots in Baguio except this one and also the Bencab Museum. We planned to go to Bencab but it's a bit farther so we opted to go to Tam-awan instead and we'll just go to Bencab some other time. We rode a taxi to go there and we paid around P70 from the market.

Tam-awan Village is located in Pinsao Proper, Baguio City and now has seven Ifugao huts and two Kalinga houses. By living in the huts, guests get an opportunity to immerse in an atmosphere that allows them to get a glimpse of village life. By the way, entrance fee is P50 for adults, 30 for seniors and students with ID and 20 for the kids.

There were several foreigners that we've seen there and one guy whom we talked to was from Australia. There were also some balikbayan who were there visiting the place. The place is not that awesome but if you like to see some native attractions then visit Tam-awan. There is also a gallery of paintings of different local artists there. If you want to buy some souvenirs, then go to their souvenir store. They have also a coffee shop if you want to eat something.

Next post I will write about the charcoal painting that hubby and I availed there.

Here are some photos we took from the village so take a look.
