It’s been more than a decade since I last went to the city of Baguio. And, to be back meant reminiscing the past and capturing the moment in the present. All thanks to OPPO!
Being the summer capital of the Philippines, Baguio offers a lot of experiences, ambient sceneries, and palatable foods and beverages. The city also holds rich historical and cultural heritage that anyone could only encounter in Baguio while enjoying the distance away from the tropical heat. Having first-hand experiences with these great deals from makes your Baguio trip a solid one.
On the other hand, living in those moments could not be making the most out of it, especially for those like me who keeps the memories alive in photo albums and social media feeds. In this quick getaway, OPPO brings in a leveled up trip with its photo capturing features and long battery life. And with those features from the brand, I got to enjoy and capture the present in Baguio.

Cannot-be-skipped Baguio Night Market
A Baguio Trip could not be “that” trip without stopping by the city’s night market. Strolling in is area while getting embraced by the cold Baguio breeze is a total main character vibe. It offers different products from ukay-ukay fits to its iconic strawberry taho.
Just keep walking by the night market because the next few steps might lead you to your romantic Kuwentong Baguio.

Learning from more-than-a-century-old Easter Weaving Center
We often see indigenous patterns in school events and pageants, but this trip with OPPO Philippines made me see the process before an Inabel cloth becomes one. The women from Easter Weaving Center carefully works step-by-step to produce cloths that reach various places across the globe.
Intricate details means vigorous process. And vigorous process means having talented and passionate weaving women of Baguio.
Into the Ili-likha Artists’ Wateringhole
Dropping by the Ili-likha Artists’ Wateringhole felt like going into the imagination of National Artist, Kidlat Tahimik who is behind this spot. This artistic place is also a brainchild of the De Guia Family in the city of Baguio.
Ili-likha is literally a translation of the artists’ creative imagination into a visible and tangible location. Everywhere is insta-worthy! And aside from the installation arts your eyes could enjoy, you can also delight yourselves with various food like vegan coffee and more!
No matter how many times I visit the city of Baguio, the experiences vary, which made it more important for me to take pictures as much as I can. And in this trip to Baguio, I definitely enjoyed the present; captured the moment; and kept the memories alive with OPPO!
