The log houses we all wish our parents own plus Baguio’s pine trees and gorgeous
mountain views fill the backdrop with the emotional roller coaster hit drama series that is
The Broken Marriage Vow.


Almost every episode lands on the trending pages of social media platforms. The show
has become so popular it’s now one of the top titles on streaming platform Viu, made
cheaper and more accessible through a Viu Premium account powered by PLDT Home.


The marriage of Dr. Jill Victorino (Jodi Sta. Maria) and David Ilustre (Zanjoe Marudo)
may have crumbled because of his affair with Lexy Lucero (Sue Ramirez). Yet, as we’re
watching the frustrating and heartbreaking moments, we can’t help but think, “Tara, let’s
go to Baguio!”


Beyond the riveting drama, we also find ourselves captivated by the sights all found
within our Summer Capital. Raring to travel again? Here are a few of the series’ most
iconic filming locations you, too, can visit while channeling your inner drama heroine!

Burnham Park
Located in downtown Baguio, Burnham Park is the city’s most famous park. Here, you
can go boating on colorful swan boats, people-watch by the lake, even ride a bike. If
you’re Dr. Jill, however, the park designed by Daniel Burnham may just be the perfect
place for you to take a walk to clear your mind — and maybe plan your revenge — after
discovering your husband is into some monkey business.

Camp John Hay
Surrounded by pine trees, fresh air, and the most amazing log cabins, Camp John Hay
is a no-brainer must-visit for anyone visiting Baguio. To really complete the healing
nature-filled experience, go enjoy the green scene and have a meal in Chef Billie King’s
Le Chef Restaurant at the Manor.
Camp John Hay is more than just a sanctuary for our The Broken Marriage Vow family
— in fact, it’s where most of the drama goes down.

White House of the Lord of Scents
In real life, the White House of the Lord of Scents is the abode of fragrance mogul Joel
Cruz in Camp John Hay. While not a public tourist destination, it has become an
attraction of its own because of its signature floor-to-ceiling windows that highlight its
sweeping spiral staircase.


This is also where the show’s most iconic scene (colloquially called the batukan scene)
happens. Knowing her husband is cheating with the daughter of the wealthy Luceros,
Jill decides to invite themselves to dinner at the Lucero house for a grand confrontation.

Baguio Country Club
This is where Lexy Lucero’s parents often meet Jill — either as friends hanging out over
lunch or in later episodes as enemies trading barbs as they are too civilized to go at
each other’s throats.


The famous 117-year-old landmark isn’t just home to the best raisin bread and banana
bread in the country, it also offers some of Baguio’s most breathtaking views!

Kennon Road
While definitely picturesque, Kennon Road is also among the country’s most hazardous
thoroughfares. Cliffs bracket the narrow road, making for a very steep fall if one is not
careful. The tragedy snaking through this beauty fits the outwardly perfect Ilustre family
finally succumbing to its own troubles.


In a scene shot along Kennon Road, Gio confronts his mother for not having time for
him while Jill tries to console him. Jill soon realizes the gravity of the situation, now
taking a toll on her conflicted child. It’s a raw moment that zooms in on children often
becoming the biggest victims of a broken family.


We live for the nonstop scandal and drama of The Broken Marriage Vow, but we also
find comfort in how directors Connie Macatuno and Andoy Ranay handle touchier
subjects on the show.
