Baguio Local Customs: 5 reviews and 1 photos

The ilocanos (the people in baguio) are known to be one of the wisest in money management. So, when buying in baguio, it might be good to ask the vendor for their last price then ask them to bring it down at least 30% more. Chances are they won't give it to you but they'd give you a price just a bit higher than what you're asking for which is definitely less than what they originally gave. but of course you have to feel your way around. the most you can get is a squirk or a head shake.
