Baguio: Not Your Typical Philippines City


Content creator and drone pilot Marc Piramide created this beautiful bird's eye view of a town in the mountains of the northern Philippines.  Baguio is in the highlands area of Luzon, the country's largest island.  With an elevation of about 1.5 km (around a mile) and a cool mountain climate, it's known as the Summer Capital of the Philippines.  Located in the province of Benguet, the city is comparatively young: it was built out of a US Army position established after the Spanish-American War in 1900.
