Description

A must-visit when in Baguio City is Session Road. This main avenue is a destination by itself and is frequented by locals and tourists alike. Visitors will come across a variety of stores ranging from clothing boutiques, restaurants and cafés, to bookstores, department stores and so much more. Session Road is where locals usually spend their free time, window shopping or just people watching. The lively road is also a great place for visitors to pick up some souvenirs and trinkets to take back home. Many local festivals and activities also take place here and there are numerous bazaars to explore. Muslim tourists must be aware that since Baguio City is predominantly Catholic, at 6 in the evening, daily, at Angelus time, the bustling Session Road comes to a full stop, with even vehicles stopping in their tracks. This is a Catholic devotion in honor of Annunciation and Incarnation that is remembered by a loud siren. Muslims visiting the city must therefore be respectful of this.
