Diplomat Hotel Baguio City

One of the scariest place in the Philippines is nonetheless 
the Diplomat Hotel situated atop the hill overlooking Baguio City.

This was supposedly the vacation home of the Dominican Order 
in the Philippines, but later decided to convert into a school.

It was during the 2nd World War this building suffered devastation.
And 1970s when it was transformed into a Hotel, 
managed by a faith healer by the name of Tony Agpaoa.

The 33 bedroom Diplomat Hotel discontinued its operation 
when Agpaoa died.

Locals told of hearing the sounds of people running,
screaming and crying in the middle of the night.

Apparition of headless beings and running shadows 
are also said to roam the building.

The Dominican Hill aka the Diplomat Hotel  
since then was tagged "haunted".

Haunted yet Beautiful..

..Frightening yet Amusing
