Like a pot of gold, the summer capital of the Philippines offers much treasure and delight!
RED. The best local strawberries are grown here throughout the year.
ORANGE. Baguio City is the major source of flowers in the country. (Hullo, the Flower Festival or Panagbenga is even celebrated here for one whole month!) Most available of them blossoms is the everlasting, the leis being a favorite offering to patron saints. (Yes, they are also popular for irritating … er, adorning students’ poor necks at graduation ceremonies!)
YELLOW. Experience the farm life at Sitio La Presa, a small village that has become a tourist attraction — thanks (or no thanks) to the hit teleserye “Forevermore”.
GREEN. And cheap! A kilo (2 big heads) of broccoli sells for only fifty pesos ($1.13), plus you can pick the produce yourself!
BLUE. Hike and camp out to enjoy even more the beautiful scenery in the mountains.
INDIGO. Wake up at freezing dawn to the second highest peak in the country. The sea of clouds await!
VIOLET. A trip to Baguio will never be complete without a visit to the nightly ukay-ukay (flea market). It starts at 9PMish and goes thru midnight.
