Panagbenga - Baguio City's Annual Flower Festival

What You Missed in this Years Panagbenga
Every last weekend of February, locals and tourists alike fill the lengthy sidewalks of Session and Harrison Roads to immerse themselves in what DOT Secretary Ramon Jimenez calls the “360 degree spectacle” of Panagbenga Festival.

Panagbenga, Baguio City's annual flower festival, is a five-week long slew of activities that celebrate the season when flowers blossom. A Grand Opening Parade jump starts the festivities on the first day of the month. Exciting concerts, trade fairs, and pageants follow forth on the days after but it isn't until the last Saturday and Sunday of February when the festival highlight happens.

Explore Camiguin Island in the South

Lanzones Festival Of Camiguin

Lanzones Festival Of Camiguin

posted on Monday, November 10, 2008
Perhaps one of the few festivals in the Philippines that honor their major crop in the island is the famous Lanzones Festival of Camiguin.

What use to be the claim of Laguna’s Paete is now the main turf of the island of Camiguin. During the month of October, the whole island is flush with this yellow colored fruit, when it is in abundance and its taste is on its highest sweetness. Perhaps, it is due to the islands claim of being the world’s only island with seven active volcanoes to its claim including the most feared Mount Hibok-Hibok and Camiguin Volcano. And it is because of this that the soil is rich in minerals and is ideal for these kinds of fruit trees to bear such sweet tasting fruits. Aside from the sumptuous parade of fruits, the two-day grand festival features the best of the island’s cottage industry and several indigenous sporting events.

The directions printed on the small flyer I got read:

From City Hall, take Naguilian Road (Quirino Hi-way), cross Bokawkan (Buhagan), Ferguson and Escoda Roads. Just before the Baguio City Arc, turn right to Quezon Hill Road 2 (Pilar H. Lim) and travel uphill turning right to (M. Ponce St) landmark is waiting shed. Travel the winding road for 300 meters until Brgy. Quezon Hill Proper Outpost, then turn right to Quezon Hill 1st Road for 100 meters. Turn left and an immediate right landmark is an old waiting shed to Upper Fairview Road downhill for 50 meters. I wasn't even halfway through reading, when the tiny (and, well, lazy) voice inside of me told me to: “Give up! That place you're eying is far. Stay here in your breezy Manor suite for the rest of the day. Drown in your pillows-- in between the sheets of your fluffy comforters, and enjoy the feeling of idleness. You don't have these luxuries back home in oven-hot Manila.”

Exploring Pampanga in One Day By The Culture ShockPh Group

Explore Pampanga in One Day The CultureShockPH Way
A day trip to Pampanga is one that's hard to plan not because of its distance from Manila, nor the lack of places to go to. In fact, what makes planning a day trip to this neighboring province (only about 16 kilometers from the metro) stressful is the abundance of trip-worthy destinations scattered all over its three cities and nineteen municipalities. With a long list of restaurants, historical landmarks, heritage churches and shrines to choose from, how can one fit every point of interest in Pampanga in just one day?

Experience Batad - Banaue, Ifugao

Back To Basics Unusual Mornings in Batad
Ever wonder how it feels like to wake up every morning and feel like in a coffee commercial?

A long weekend in Batad is definitely not your usual escape from the daily grind. I have been eyeing Batad for some time now, itching to finally check this on my list of places to go to up north. A legit photo beside the famous amphitheater of rice fields is a must to the typical tourist. And people come, hike for a good one hour from saddle camp to the main view deck, take pictures, but leave the next day.
