Sierra Madre Day Trip







 Sierra Madre is one of the most perfect places to go picnic with your family and friends. The best part about it is its just one hour away from Marcos Highway. It’s tourist free and there is not traffic. You will have to feeling of your like in Baguio. Where you can smell fresh pine tree in the morning and same weather as Baguio. The only sad part about it is that there are a few good places to eat here so you better bring good food and drinks to have a nice peaceful vacation where you get to bond with your family.
There are a lot of resorts to stay here but I recommend that you just go on for a daytrip and not stay overnight since the rooms are not quite nice. You can also bring meat and grill it up for your perfect picnic.

The Sierra Madre Hotel is a nice choice of place for picnic. There are a lot of things to do here, like go swimming, zip line, hiking and camping, or just chill and eat good food with family and friends.
Sierra Madre is the perfect place to go to if you are tired of the busy tourist places of Tagaytay and Baguio. The best part of it is that there is no traffic going here and it’s just one hour away from the city of Metro Manila and you don’t have to pay for toll. You just have to bring your own food to have an awesome time.
