baguio december 2014 part four: strawberry farm x souvenirs

Posted on: April 20, 2015


i’ve been to baguio several times but haven’t been to the strawberry farm yet so i was extremely excited to see the place… however, it was sort of a tourist trap. they’d charge too much just for you to pick strawberries, when i could have bought a few kilos of strawberries for the same price. also, it wasn’t the farm i’d imagined, which was one with plump fruit and user friendly pathways…


there are also vendors nearby, i bought an overpriced sagada orange… because there were no other buyers. people just kept on taking the free samples and were moving along, huhu. on a side note, my boss’ kid got some strawberry ice cream, wasn’t able to take a pixxor though.


there’s a big market just beside the farm where you can wallow in souvenirs. if you can lug them around, there are also brooms, hats and baskets, the handmade native stuff are always better than the flimsy t-shirts that they sell in bulk. i got one of those small rainbow brooms because they’re too cute…

yun lang muna.
