We conquered the mountains of Baguio!

Hi I’m Shota

I came from Japan and I have studied English for 3 months in PIA.

This study abroad was a good experience for me because I could make many international friends.

When I got here, I was so nervous because I thought the Philippines is dangerous. But actually, Baguio City is really a nice and safe city.

The people here are really kind and friendly. When I asked something from them, they always helped me. All teachers are also kind and their classes were very fun. That’s why I didn’t want to go back to Japan (lol).

My life!

Other than that, there are two reasons why I like Baguio City.

The first reason is the mountains. There are many mountains here.

Yo~ !

If you feel tired to study, I recommend that go to a mountain!When I was a student in PIA, I went to Mt. Ulap, Mt. Kalugong and Mt. Sto. Tomas. Those mountains were so beautiful and hiking on them was a good exercise.

I also visited PMA with my friend, Keisuke

Second, there are many nice places near Baguio City. For instance, San Fernando, San Juan, Vigan, Hundred Islands etc…

Vigan City!

It’s easy to go there by bus and the hotels here in the Philippines are really cheap compared to Japanese hotels. I went to Vigan on New Year vacation and it was awesome because it is a historical town.

Vigan is one of World Heritages in the Philippines. So if you have time, I recommend that you go to Vigan.

My PIA life is over but I’ll never forget this experience.

Thank you to all my teachers and friends!Let’s catch up again definitely.
