Ganun? May informal settlers din pala sa Intramuros. Of course may mga informal settlers sa Baguio. pero di ganun ka extensive. Sa sobrang gamit ng lupa sa Baguio, at dahil 57 sq kms lang naman land area ng Baguio, pati iskwater di makasingit. hehe

Gaya nito. Kahit sa matarik na bangin napagtyatyagaan na pagtayuan ng 8 storeys.

Let's face it. Baguio lacks city planning like many parts of Metro Manila. Baguio could have been a different city offering tourists as well as residents something unique and different from what they already have in the lowlands (i.e. an eco tourism city/parks and greenery/nature trails/height building restrictions/underground utilities/city zoning/ etc. etc. etc.)

What happened is, Baguio turned out to be just like any other city with unabated construction of just about everything possible. Worse, it has gotten overpopulated and dense, again just like any other city. I guess this is the reason why I often hear from Metro Manilans that Tagaytay/Batangas/Subic are the places to go to these days for a long weekend. I hardly hear of Baguio anymore in conversations.

It's never too late to reverse the situation if Baguio politicians create a vision for the city and then faithfully implement this vision.

I agree...Its sad and its true. Baguio has succumbed to urbanization. Its just another city swallowed whole by consumerism. The streets are no longer as friendly as they used to be. Not to mention the heavy pollution that goes along with it. Even camp john hay, baguio's last frontier, would soon lose its essence this coming days, as manila gods intend to put up a campus type BPO facility within the area, with a strip mall and golf courses to go along with it. to serve only the rich of course.

Isu ngarud kasla awan traffic. Hehe. but during rush hour, that particular section is teeming with cars and pedestrians.

baka met holiday idi innala da dyay picture.

I agree with Go Global. Baguio has expanded beyond what is sustainable. Population has become denser than what the city can support. It's sad to hear that even in mountainous areas, flooding do happen. (FA, I guess this incident happened around 2004 near City Camp?) Now I'm wondering what will Baguio look like few years from now? The once existing balance between nature and development is now destroyed imo.

Ganda talagang tingnan ang blending nang mga building at pine tree sa Bagiuo...Talagang relax na relax yong environment.

Once lang ako nakapunta dyan, pero babalik pa rin ako...Hehehe

I think the flood occured last 2001 with the onslaught of typhoon Feria.An area called City Camp Lagoon, was flooded, which is not surprising, because it was meant to be a Lagoon but since it is dry for most of the year, not even the Lagoon was spared from residential development, hence the flood...

No problem bro.

There was a time na talagang nag flood sa Baguio last 1991 Just a year after the earthquake. Nag flood sa buong Burnham Park-Harrison road area at lagpas tao ang lalim.

Sabi ng mga "elders" ko the early 1990's was the time na napag iwanan talaga ang Baguio at akala nila di makakarecover dahil nag back out ang madaming investors dahil sa earthquake, sa baha, at kung anu ano pa.

Yep. Isu ngarud nadadael diyay dadakel nga buildings iddi July 1990; eg: Skyworld condominium, Hyatt hotel, Hilltop Hotel...

At this pace of development, I wonder how Baguio will look in the next ten years, when so much has already changed in the last eight years.
