Baguio

Baguio, the largest city of northern Luzon and a noted tourist destination, is said to be highly haunted. There are several haunted locations scattered throughout the city, such as cemeteries, old hotels, and other sites where structures used to stand until the 1990 Luzon earthquake destroyed them, injuring and killing the people inside. The city was also the site of some of the most brutal atrocities committed during World War II.[25][26][27] Such haunted locations include the following:
