In this album, we’ll show you six things Baguio can teach us about love. #LetsG to find out!
Love is sweet. But sometimes it can be sour.
The first thing to love about Baguio are strawberries. The main source of strawberries is in the adjacent town of La Trinidad, Benguet. Strawberry-picking is considered a must-do for tourists here.
Some berries may taste sour, but the right ones will indulge your sweet tooth. Remember, be careful in picking the right ones.
Love is everlasting.
Everlasting flowers are a common sight in Baguio. This little, papery flowers are one of the must-buys. Buy some, take it home, and it still would not have withered months later. It may be dried, but the colors will last a long time – just like true love.
You learn to appreciate everything.
Baguio gives a glimpse of the amazing indigenous culture of the Cordillera Region and the city will teach you to appreciate this. You’ll see several people dancing their native moves, playing their musical instruments, or walking in their traditional attire.
Take it a step further and feel what it’s like to wear these garbs by dressing up in Igorot attire in Mines View Park.
Love Mother Nature
The city is known for its pine trees. Sometimes you can even smell its fragrance while on the road. Most places like Camp John Hay are adorned with these trees.
In order to protect pine trees, they set local ordinances for preservation. Take a walk into the woods and learn to love the wonders of nature.
Believe it or not, there is a cemetery in Baguio where you can bury your own negative thoughts. The Cemetery of Negativism in Camp John Hay is complete with tombstones that will tell you to forget bad stuff in your head and be optimistic.
It’s a perfect spot to cast out your negative feelings, especially when it comes to your love life and rejections.
