One of my favorite destinations is Baguio, my main reason is I love cool weather, and aside from this there are a lot of places to visit, food to eat and things to do. With so many things to do in Baguio often times first time travelers and even seasoned travelers gets intimidated, especially when looking for a place to stay in the Summer Capital of the Philippines. That is why you should try the Traveloka App on your next visit to Baguio.
I have used the Traveloka App a couple of times already during my travels and it was really helpful when booking flights and hotels. But let me focus on why it should be one of your apps to install when visiting Baguio.
1. Filter Options for List of Hotels
I am a traveler who prefers to stay near parks since generally parks are more quiet than shopping areas. For practicality, I also prefer staying near shopping areas, not because I like shopping, but because that’s where convenience stores and restaurants are located most of the time.
To filter your results select Baguio City as your place of destination then set the other needed details such as number of nights, persons and rooms then hit search. Once the resulting list comes up press Filter on the bottom right of the screen and you can filter the results as much as you want.
By the way you can also Sort the results to your preferred option.
For me, I prefer sorting based on Highest Popularity and sometimes based on Highest rating. Then I search from the list on the price and quality that I can afford.
2. Map Selection
Sometimes, all the filters and sorting just makes me overloaded with information that I just want to just see a map on where the accommodations are located and their prices. Very easy to see.
You can also set filters so that your search for your perfect accommodation in Baguio City would be more refined.
3. The Price You See is the Price You Get
One of the reasons I prefer booking with Traveloka is that when I see the price on the list, I do not have to recompute for hidden charges such as 12% Value Added Tax (VAT), 10% Service Charge, etcetera.
Everything is included in the price. The price that you see in the list is the price that you will be paying.
How much you will pay is just a simple price multiplied by the number of nights that you want to stay.
4. Budget or Luxury Hotel
You can also easily filter the results if you’re more on a backpacking trip in Baguio City or you want to stay in a Luxury Hotel by just pressing the Luxury and Budget button above the list.
It depends on what type of traveler are you. For me, I’m a mix of both, depends on my mood most of the time.
5. Includes TripAdvisor Reviews of the Hotels
More than just list of prices and pictures it really helps when you see reviews of people who have already stayed in the hotels that you want to stay. One of the rich resources of these reviews is TripAdvisor, that is why it was really helpful to see that they included TripAdvisor Reviews inside the Traveloka App.
No need to change to the TripAdvisor App and search for the hotel that you want just to check on the reviews.
This makes decision making easier when booking thru the Traveloka App.

Enjoy your trip in Baguio!
