It's not as easy as it was before.

At this point in our quarantined lives, we're all probably in dire need of a good road trip. It's still not ~entirely~ safe to go out and it isn't exactly advisable to embark on non-essential trips to the outside world. Some areas, however, have started re-opening to tourists (with the necessary safety protocols, of course).

One such place is Baguio, a favorite tourist spot among Pinoys. While the city is welcoming tourists back, the process isn't as easy as it was before. New guidelines have been implemented to avoid the possible spread of COVID-19. If you're curious about what it's like to travel under general community quarantine (GCQ), vlogger Samantha Jison shared a snippet of their recent trip to Baguio. Read on to learn how trips are made during GCQ:

Schedule your visit online.

First, you have to visit the Baguio Visita website to schedule your trip. In order to do so, you have to create an account and fill out the forms. Reserving your slots is on a first-come, first-serve basis because they can only allow a limited number of visitors at a time. According to Samantha, so far, those allowed to travel to Baguio are those who live in Luzon.

Book an accommodation.

You'll also have to pre-book your accommodation in advance and declare your itinerary. If you plan on going on tours, it is preferred by the local government that you book tour through accredited operators.

Get a mandatory swab test.

You have the option to get a PCR test at most three days prior to your scheduled travel date or undergo the test as soon as you arrive in Baguio. Testing expenses are shouldered by the visitors. You will have to stay in your hotel and are not allowed to travel around the city until the results come out.
