My favorite experience in our Baguio travels happened not in this city we call the Philippine summer capital but in an adjacent town of Benguet.
If you are familiar with these places, then you’ve probably realized I’m taking about the strawberry picking that tourists can do at a farm in La Trinidad.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. Baguio was a heady experience. The cool climate was a novelty for an island girl like me. At any spot in this plateau within Benguet, you get a view. It may be of rows and rows of houses on the hillsides, a forest of pines, the city and surrounding countryside, or the Cordillera mountain range.
Though the winding way up makes me dizzy, I prefer traveling during the daytime along Kennon Road because I can clearly make out the towering mountains and the sheer drops.
I went to all the touristy places in Baguio.
