Hi, fellow dream chasers!
Just last February 26th, my friend and I were in Baguio City for the Panagbenga Flower Festival. When I was a college student, I promised myself to go to Baguio when I graduate. I was supposed to travel alone before but I backed out at the last minute since I got scared of travelling alone. Good thing my friend, Ate Michelle, invited me to join her to go to Baguio.
We left Manila in the evening of the 25th and we arrived in the city at around 3:30 in the morning. We managed to get a good spot to watch the parade. All the floats were gorgeous! I believe the Japanese and Korean communities are active in Baguio since there were representatives present. There was a cosplay community present too! I also believe there was a “Game of Thrones” themed float too. We were entertained by students playing the instruments during the parade. There are even artists involved in the parade! I saw a glimpse of Alden and Maine. I didn’t see the other artists since we already left our spot to eat lunch. After eating lunch, we went to a market to buy souvenirs. I got a strawberry keychain, a fan and Baguio snacks! We also strolled in Burnham Park. I was able to eat strawberry icecream and taho! The icecream was so good though the strawberry taho was too sweet for me.
After, we went to “The Mansion” and got our photos taken. After a short stop at “The Mansion”, we went to Mines View Park. I wasn’t able to see the park since I was already tired.
It was only a one day trip but it was still worth it. I hope to visit Baguio again next time!
