The best time to go to Baguio, the Philippines’ Summer Capital is undoubtedly during the  Panagbenga Festival that happens every February of the year. I have been to Baguio many times during the Panagbenga season, I can say nothing but smiles and really beautiful arrangement of flowers that you won’t see somewhere else. The Panagbenga Festival in Baguio is known for its grand street dancing and mesmerizing flower float parades.

The Annual Sagada Bonfire or Panag - apoy Festival

Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines

If you want to experience a different kind of nightlife where people gather around the biggest bonfire they probably have ever seen in their whole life, come visit Sagada during last week of December. They have this event called Sagada Bonfire Festival where traditional games and folk dances of Igorots (people of Sagada) are performed as a way of educating the guests of the lives of their ancestors during pre - colonization period. I am very lucky I was able to catch it during my Sagada tour with side trips to Banaue, Benguet and Baguio.

The climate from December to February in Sagada and neighboring mountains are at its coldest so you will get to feel the winter sans snow! I suggest you bring a cap, scarf, jacket, wear long sleeve attires and pants instead. 

You may be wondering of all the things that Sagada can make a festival out of, why bonfires? I think obviously because it represents their resilience to the cold weather. One can just stay in the room the whole day and whole night for that kind of weather then forget to plant crops or learn new skills outside but they proved that was not a problem. Their rice terraces are one of the world's most admired architecture that has baffled a lot of engineers on how these were built without aid from technology hundreds of years ago!
