Garbage Dump Photo[edit]

On February 1, 2008 user Exec8 inserted a photo of a Baguio hillside garbage dump to the "Economy" section without further explanation. It surprises me that other editors have not removed this photo earlier. While I will concede the photo is somewhat interesting, I fail to see where a view of a garbage dump contributes to the subject of Baguio's economy except very tangentially. Unless Exec8 wishes to add a section on Baguio's environmental conditions and place the photo there or add a paragraph in the Economy section discussing the side effects of Baguio's economic growth or demonstrate some other reason why this photo has relevance, in my view it is unnecessary and distorts the reader's perceptions of Baguio.

Use of barangay listing?[edit]

Other than adding to the load time of the wiki article, what is the purpose of the barangay listing? Unless it had demographic information per barangay I suggest the whole section be removed.

For reference, the Manila page does not have a barangay listing. Gomi 07:28, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Every Philippine city and municipality has a barangay list. Don't remove it. And please, I'm pleading, sign your posts with this: ~~~~ so that we'll know who you are. Thanks. --Howard the Duck 07:48, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
Also, Manila has 800+ barangays, it would be a very looooooong list. --Howard the Duck 10:05, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

I think Manila does not list its barangays not because it will be a long list, but because it does not really matter what the barangay names are. But since folks do use Wikipedia as a research tool sometimes, and Baguio's section contains comparatively very little info about Baguio, I think we can keep the barangay list in the meantime (as a "filler," which is what it is right now) until the Baguio section gets really large. The suggestion about demographics is good though. Maybe someone with info will add to that soon. --Creativenative 05:26, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Cantonese in Baguio?[edit]

I have heard that majority of the Chinese living in Baguio are Cantonese rather than Hokkiens? Anyone to confirm this?

Yes. 124.107.37.42 08:29, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Loakan airport closure...[edit]

This may be of little importance to many that read this but please note the following... The President of the Philippines and the Mayor of Baguio are behind moves to close the Loakan Airport in Baguio and redevelop the land for industrial purposes and have those that wish to fly to Baguio instead use the new Poro Point airport in San Fernando City, La Union and then bus it to Baguio... So please be advised that unless certain groups can fight off the closure it looks like this airport could be closed to make way for big business - I wonder just how much money will be pocketed by certain politicians when this happens???

The President during a dinner meeting with the local media last April announced plans closing down the airport because it is not earning and the space should instead be used to accommodate the expansion of Texas Instruments Philippines Inc. -- a US-based semiconductor firm, and the largest locator at the BEPZ

Opposed to the airport's closure, The Hotels and Restaurants Association of Baguio, (HRAB), Baguio Tourism Council (BTC), and Baguio Conventions and Visitors Bureau (BCVB) also passed separate resolutions supporting the call for its rehabilitation.

Philippine Science High School[edit]

<Cityname> <City>[edit]

There is a discussion regarding the removal of the word "city" from the article names of Philippine cities. This may imminently affect the article name for Baguio. For city names which are not unique, disambiguation alternatives are also being presented. Formal request for page move may follow after a reasonable time of discussion. If you wish to participate, please post your comments here. --JinJian (talk) 03:17, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved Peter Karlsen (talk) 03:29, 31 October 2010 (UTC)


Baguio CityBaguio — Part of series of multiple page move requests involving Philippine cities under the category General rule -> eliminate the word “city” from the name of the Philippine cities except those needing disambiguation. This request is made after preliminary discussions for the removal of the word "city" from most of the article titles of Philippine cities and providing disambiguation wherever necessary. Some disambiguation may involve using the <cityname>, <provincename> format, regardless if it is highly urbanized, independent or component cities. In here, <provincename> purports to describe the general area and not necessary as the mother political unit of the city, since some people might have wrongly believed that this naming convention is exclusively for Philippine towns only. For more information please see Wikipedia_talk:Tambayan_Philippines/Task_force_LGU#Article_names_for_Philippine_cities:_.3Ccityname.3E_.3Ccity.3E. JinJian (talk) 06:55, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

I do not plan on visiting each and every article involved but my comment here can be cited or transcribed to a pertinent discussion or vote if needed. Lambanog (talk) 09:41, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support for the numerous reasons I have stated over the years. See the linked discussion page in the proposal for details. --seav (talk) 00:46, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Cleaned up Baguio talk page[edit]

I had to remove old discussions about Spamming in this Talk page as the discussion itself is being used for advertisement. It's spamming masquerading as discussions. ANY SPAMMING is not allowed in Wikipedia in any form per WP:Spam. Talk pages should only be used for discussing improvements on the article, not which one is the lesser SPAM; any SPAM is considered as SPAM. I removed all discussion/Spam that is not within the scope of Talk pages per WP:Talk pages. Thanks. Briarfallen (talk) 20:45, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Are you high?[edit]

The article states "It is the highest major Philippine city in terms of elevation."

For one, Baguio is NOT a major city. It is a small rural town. Secondly, can a city be highest in terms of something other than elevation??? Is this a drug reference?112.198.77.15 (talk) 12:38, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Baguio certainly is neither small nor rural. This is personal research, so I'm not putting it in the article of course, but I was there yesterday. With its many large buildings, including many government offices because it is the center of the Cordillera Administrative Region, with several institutions of higher learning, with its intense traffic congestion, it is not rural. In 2010 it was the 31st largest city in the Philippines, with a population of over 318,000. The user above doesn't know Baguio. Believe the article itself, which talks about how urbanized it is. The sentence about elevation could be improved a little. I am going to decline to say anything about the suspicion of a drug reference. Dgndenver (talk) 06:54, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
