I am about to make my first trip to Philippines. As it is the low season in most areas, my plan is to travel around the country without a fixed schedule, searching for accommodation on the spot. I'll be aiming to stay in budget hotels, but can afford occasional mid-range accommodation.
I'll be visiting Baguio around the end of May / beginning of June. I understand that during this time the city and surroundings is a popular place for escaping the hottest time of the year. My question is: will there still be plenty of budget accommodation available, or would it be prudent to make a reservation some days beforehand (or even earlier)?
EDIT after 10 days: I'm still unclear as to the situation with accommodation in Baguio. However, my premise above about this being the hottest time is beginning to look questionable, as weather forecasts predict rain and storms in much of Luzon. To be on the safe size, I will (try to) book the room on the day prior to arriving in Baguio. Will update/answer this question in case that experience gives me some insight on the general availability of rooms.
