Dubbed as “The Summer Capital of the Philippines”, Baguio City is a popular tourist destination to both Filipinos and foreigners alike because of its cold weather. In fact, during the American occupation, this is where the American military personnel always love to go. Baguio City has a lot to offer in terms of culture, beautiful natural scenery, and nice topography. However, I know for a fact that the Philippines, despite having a significant number of Muslim citizens, lacks a comprehensive information on halal restaurants in Baguio City, was well as in other major cities like Manila and Cebu, among others.

I have many Muslim friends inside and outside the Philippines, and for their benefit (and for every Muslim travelerโ€™s benefit), I did a research and compiled this list of 11 halal restaurants that can be found in Baguio City*. I wish I was able to eat on these restaurants and review them during my stay there. But I can always go back to do it, right? I promise to provide them a detailed review next time.

So, without further ado, letโ€™s proceed to the list of 11 Halal Restaurants in Baguio City:

BenCab Museum Baguio City
BenCab Museum Baguio City
GOOD MORNING, BAGUIO CITY! It may not be the sunniest day this day, but it just made the weather even colder (which I totally love, btw!). And look at those houses by the mountains! They look like the Brazilian favelas I see in photos and in TV. It looks so stunning for me because I don’t see things like this where I live. So ladies and gentlemen, this is why I travel.

Baguio City is dubbed as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines”, and this is because of its high altitude location which therefore gives it a very cold and cozy weather, almost all year round. Filipinos and other tourists would visit Baguio City mostly every summer to escape the heat in their own respective hometowns. Back in the day, it was also the favorite vacation spot of American colonial government officials, that’s why a lot of remnants of the American colonial rule can be found here. I had the chance to visit Baguio City, and naturally, my agenda would compose of visits to museums. Baguio is home to several museums, and by the time of my visit, the very beautiful BenCab (Benjamin Cabrera) Museum just opened its doors to the public.

BenCab Museum Baguio City
HELLO, THERE, ROOSTER! From my humble homey hotel, I took two jeepney rides to go to BenCab Museum. It could be hard to go to if you don’t know the route and the right public transportation to take. Inside the jeepney are the typical scene of locals checking in their products (usually crops), and look, there’s even a rooster inside our jeepney! Reminded me of the jeepneys in my hometown.
BenCab Museum Baguio City
WAITING FOR THE OPENING OF THE MUSEUM. I arrived very early (before the 9AM opening) so that I could go around the galleries with less people. But obviously, it was a long weekend/holiday that time, so a lot of people went up to Baguio for a quick getaway, like me. Not complaining, though! But as usual, I’m the loser solo traveler in a swarm of big groups and families (I’m being sarcastic with the ‘loser’ tag, I love being the solo traveler in crowds like this). Manong Security Guard is monitoring the vicinity of the place because the museum is by a National Road.

BenCab Museum Baguio City
SABEL. BenCab’s wife’s name is Sabel, and a lot of his artworks are inspired by his wife. This super elegant mural will welcome you as you enter the museum, as if Sabel is welcoming you to their home. What you’re seeing are Sabel’s ‘portraits’ painted in ceramic tiles, and BenCab sells reproductions of these.
BenCab Museum Baguio City
SOMETHING COLONIAL. You see, this is one of my weaknesses when visiting museums. For one, I only get to document artworks that moved me (especially if the museums are very big, of course), but I tend to forget to take note of the artist and the title of the artwork. (This is a lesson for next time). What you’re seeing, obviously, is an American flag which has a lot of symbolic things painted on it. There is also an (American) eagle on the top of it.
BenCab Museum Baguio City
BUL-UL. Whenever you’re anywhere in the Cordillera regions, you will never, ever miss seeing Bul-ul statues. It is also known as Bulul or Tinagtaggu, which were believed to be wood carvings of the ancestors of the people of Cordillera region. They also serve as the Gods protecting the rice crops of the residents in the region. This is very iconic and if there’s one takeaway you can bring home from a trip up to the Cordilleras, it’s your knowledge about the bulul.

BenCab Museum Baguio City
A MUSEUM WITH SO MUCH NATURE! BenCab Museum has a freaking Nipa Hut in the middle of a duck pond which is very tranquil! The museum complex is so big and upon reaching the back part, you will have a view of this beautiful sight and you can even go down there. Now I know why people love going to BenCab Museum. I mean, look at this view!
BenCab Museum Baguio City
CAFE SABEL. Cafe Sabel is your Museum Cafe with a very colorful and modern interior. I love museum cafes, they are the most classy ones on earth (even if they serve the most expensive food, I mean sipping coffee inside a museum? Awesome!). I just forgot to take a photo, but their strawberry milkshake is superb! You can’t afford to miss anything with strawberries when in Baguio City, okay? You just can’t.

11 Cool and Educational Museums to Visit in Baguio City

Baguio City in the Cordillera region in the northern Philippines is dubbed as the โ€œSummer Capital of the Philippinesโ€ that is why people flock here throughout the year especially during summer to escape the heat in their places of origin. We are very lucky that a lot of museums in Baguio City are built around to showcase the art, history, and culture of the region. Aside from the cold weather and museums, amazing views, and good food, Baguio City also presents a unique cultural heritage that is distinct from the rest of the country.

Meanwhile, here are some of my other posts about Baguio City:

So, without further ado, below are five of the several museums that are really worth the visit:

1. BENCAB MUSEUM

MUSEUMS IN BAGUIO CITY
MUSEUMS IN BAGUIO CITY: BenCab Museum

BenCab, or Benjamin Cabrera, is a National Artist for Visual Arts, is the owner of this majestic museum. It houses several of his contemporary art collections and own works. You will also see many bul-ul (a carved wooden figure used to guard the rice crops by the Ifugaos) installations here.

โ€œSabelโ€ a common theme in BanCabโ€™s works, is actually inspired by a real-life scavenger. A coffee shop is located at the ground floor of the museum which he also named โ€œSabelโ€. An eco-trail outside Sabel Cafรฉ where traditional Cordillera houses can be seen can also be explored for a separate fee, just ask the cafรฉ staff to avail. Nature and art combined indeed. Entrance fee is Php100 (Php80 for students and senior citizens).
