A trip to Baguio City is never complete without a visit to it’s attractions like Camp John Hay and Burnham Park or a taste of the succulent strawberry–but have you ever thought of adding ghost-hunting to that list?
For a mere P500, you can get your ghost fills perhaps to last you sleepless nights until the end of time. Pine City Fright Tours, which just opened last March, will take you on a chilling trip around the city to explore the most famous haunts Baguio has to offer.
Tagged as “a tour unlike any other,” interested parties may avail of different packages of the Baguio ghost tour which will take the group to key areas such as Laperal House, Teachers Camp, and the Old Diplomat Hotel. Disembodied voices and ghost sightings are just two of the many chills and thrills adventurers can experience. Naturally, tours are done starting at 5 P.M. Though the haunted sights are closed in the evenings, Pine City Fright Tours is actually a legit business, complete with license.
Tours are led by Pine City Fright Tours proprietor and ex-film editor/freelance videographer Anton Villa-Abrille. “I’ve always been fond of Baguio, I spent many summers up here. I got tired of working for other people so I decided to go into a business for myself. What better place to do a ghost tour than in a haunted city?” Villa-Abrille says.
Villa-Abrille recognizes Baguio’s long paranormal history. The very many stories he used to hear as a child spurred him to trek to the famous summer hotspot and explore. His research lasted seven months as he carefully interviewed caretakers, previous owners, survivors, and eyewitnesses. “[For] each place I take my guests to, I give a historical background and then a paranormal account,” he says.
Visitors come up to Baguio to chill (literally), but if you’re looking for a different kind of chill, contact Pine City Fright Tours at +63 998 548 0301.
