The Laperal White House in Baquio City

Baguio is one of the famous cities in the Philippines and has been celebrated as the Summer Capital of the Country. It is a highly urbanized City located in the Province of Benguet in northern Luzon Island of the Philippines. Anyhow, Baguio is the favorite summer getaway of people who are trying to skip the searing hot sun of the low-lying provinces. Aside from that the tourist can enjoy feel fresh all day and surely feel comfortable because of the good weather condition are cool and refreshing.

Last holly week, our family spent a short vacation in Baguio City, actually it’s almost 4 times to visit that place. But this is the first to visit the Laperal white house in Baguio City. The Laperal White House looks like a charming, quaint Victorian house when viewed from the street. Located in #14 Leonard Wood Road, the white house has been a significant landmark in the area for many years now. The house is known for its alleged spirit invasion, which has attracted many people on a quest for paranormal haunt and the Laperal White House retains its own charm of mystery and intrigue.

Gallery of Bamboo Business tycoon Lucio Tan bought the property sometime in 2007. Since then, the house has been maintained and restored. In 2013, it was transformed into a gallery of Filipino artworks based on bamboo and wood. The Ifugao Bamboo Carving Gallery is a joint project of the Tan Yan Kee Foundation and the Philippine Bamboo Association. For an entrance fee of Php 50.00, visitors are welcome to take a look and take a photo inside the house. Today, the house is the home of bamboo artworks and installations. It’s a must-visit for bamboo craft enthusiasts. But despite its renovation, many people are insistent of the gloomy atmosphere that pervades the house, especially for those attuned to the supernatural.

Plan for summer

The summer time here in the Philippines is past approaching. My cousin has planned to go to Baguio City for a short vacation. She contacts me to help her on how to organize. Our plan is this coming month of May 2013. Actually this is the 4th time to go in Baguio City, but all of my cousins and my family have not been there for all their life so they want to experience. I just asked her about the transient house, the food and the transportation. Anyway, my cousin likes to choose the place of Baguio City for this coming summer because of the cold climate there and this is the summer capital of the Philippines. Baguio is one of the stunning tourist spot here in the Philippines. Hopefully the planned is become resumption, and have a few months to prepare. And I also prepared for my family.
