      Camp John Jay is located in Baguio City, Philippines. I think it used to be an army barracks for American soldiers, thus the name Camp John Hay, until the US bases were turned over to the Philippine local government. A local real estate firm developed the whole place and turned it into a vacation hotspot.

      The soldier’s homes were turned into cottages and a huge hotel was built. Ghost hunters go to Camp John Hay in hopes of coming across spirits, but during our stay


      there we experienced no paranormal activities.

      My friends and I stayed at a two bedroom cottage, which costs about 5,000 pesos a day. It was actually cheap since there were 8 of us who squeezed into the whole place.

      There was hot water, a small kitchen, a refrigerator, cable TV and a fire place. It was like a small house already.

      But I can’t imagine how we were able to share one bathroom. There was no need for air conditioners, in fact we needed more ...


      • blankets since we weren’t used to the cold.

        Being city folk, we were used to pollution and Camp John Hay was filled with pine trees and fresh air. Behind our cottage was the small canteen, an arcade for kids, a playground and a mini golf area.

        A few blocks away is the butterfly garden. Security is very tight, and anyone caught doing anything illegal would be kicked out of the place.

        One of the tenants in the cottage beside ours was caught smoking pot, and

        they were immediately turned over to the local police. Security guards roamed the grounds, day and night to keep the place secure and clean.

        Inside Camp John Hay is the Baguio Manor Hotel, a Starbucks branch, a clubhouse for the residents, a PX goods store and restaurants. Around the ground is a huge 18′ hole golf course designed by Jack Niklaus.

        This is truly a wonderful place to visit with your family and friends if you just want to rest and have a peaceful time.
