Halloween is just around the corner. The air is getting colder. The nights are getting longer. This is the best time to curl up with some scary stories. And what better way to count down to Halloween than reading a spooky stories right before going to sleep? There’s no shortage of scary stories specially here in the Philippines and the places considered to be haunted, but these are the ones I found most bone-chilling!
The Laperal House is one of the most haunted places in the Philippines and it is located in Baguio City, north of Luzon. A vacation home built by Roberto Laperal in the 1930s, the house is said to be the residence of the ghosts of a woman who looks out the window and a little girl who stands on the stairs. The house is, unfortunately, closed most days of the year, so you can only appreciate it from the outside.
I’ve already traveled to Baguio twice and have visited some of the tourists spots like the Burnham Park, Mines View Park, the Mansion, etc but I didn’t get the chance to visit the Diplomat Hotel. So last September, I’ve decided to take a trip back to Baguio and my mission is to explore one of the most haunted places here in the Philippines.
