Baguio is a highland city in the province of Benguet, in northern Luzon, the Philippines. It was established by the Americans in 1900 as a hill station - the only hill station in Asia to be established by the Americans. Today Baguio has a population of around 320,000 (2014 estimate), and is a popular tourist destination.
Baguio was designated the summer capital of the Philippines in 1903, and in 1909 it was made a chartered city. Henceforth it was known as the City of Baguio, or commonly, as Baguio City, though the most popular name is simply Baguio.
Baguio is located some 1540 meters (5050 ft) above sea level. As such, the climate here is much cooler compared to Manila.
