La trinidad is a must see destination in Benguet… about 15 -20 minutes jeepney or taxi drive from the city of Baguio… thisÂ destination hosts the yearly Strawberry Festival where the world record breaking “Biggest Strawberry Shortcake” can be found. Top of is the strawberry fields in the La Trinidad valley where one gets to pick his own strawberry’s right out of the plantation. Look around and you’ll find fresh vegetables ready to be harvested or get to choose from the small stalls that sells fresh produce veggies.
As you move on towards La Trinidad, you may want to pass by the flower farms to pick flowers (or plants?) “at your own risk (LOL). As you go back to the city, try visiting the TAMAWAN village… drink a cup of coffee and check out Benguet’s interesting crafts and culture….
