This iReport is part of an assignment:
Eye on the Philippines
These images were shot on April 17, 2012 at Tam-Awan Village in Baguio City, Philippines.
These unique lodging huts are made by traditional Cordillera methods using no nails. Each one was taken directly from the highlands and refurbished using authentic materials. The roofs are thatched with dried cogon grass.
Tam-awan Village is a model Cordillera village and a center of local arts and culture located in Baguio City, Philippines. The name Tam-awan is from an indigenous word meaning “vantage point" because the South China Sea can be viewed from the deck on a clear day.
I haven't stayed in these unique lodging huts but they look cool, simple, unique, peaceful, surrounded with many incredible local art works and a good place to be attached with nature. One thing that captured my attention was the "fertility hut". I think that was designed specifically for newly wed or for those who wants to have a baby.
