50k tourists expected to visit Baguio City during weekends

Baguio City anticipates 50,000 to 60,000 tourists flocking to the city during summer’s weekends.

City Tourism Officer Aloysius Mapalo said on Thursday the projection is based on the trend of travel, as tourists register and get their quick response (QR) codes from the online tourist registration portal as the date of their actual travel nears.

“We can’t have summer numbers this early, registration peaks when nearing actual travel dates,” he said.

Mapalo added that pre-pandemic data shows that Holy Week is the peak tourism season, followed by the Panagbenga Festival, Christmas season and the summer months.
