Tam-Awan Village, Baguio

Tam-awan Village is one of Baguio City's  "newer" attractions, having been created only in 1998 by the Chanum Foundation.

Located at the outskirts of the city, it is an artists colony set amid a charming collection of Ifugao and Kalinga huts. Getting there may be a little tricky but certainly well worth the trip.

A minimal entrance fee gets visitors inside the compound to explore the grounds, which includes an art gallery and a coffee shop. The different native huts and other areas are used for workshops and exhibits. It is the best place to purchase a painting or drawing by one of the many well-known artists who have their artwork on display. 

The Tam-Awan Village is found in the northwestern part of the city. To find the village, proceed to Bokawkan Road which is behind Camp Allen, turn left at Ferguzon Road which leads to the Easter Weaving Room, and then right to Tacay Road which is an uphill climb. Upon reaching the top of the hill, take a right turn and this road will bring you to Tam-Awan Village. If you proceed further on, the road will take you to the town of La Trinidad.
