Botanical Garden Baguio: Around the World in a Day

In the past, the Botanical Garden was well-celebrated for the Igorot dances showcased within the village. Although this is not as common now compared to before, this Eden serves as the place to celebrate the legacy our Igorot brothers and sisters bestowed upon our culture. In fact, they will be more than happy to strike a pose with your posse for souvenir! It does come with a price, though, and this is to help sustain their living. Be kind! Give a lot!

The Botanical Garden is also a place where countries in alliance with the Philippines, share their token of friendship. These endowments take in the form of their culture’s replica landmarks.

My personal favorite would be the Japanese Tunnel. At first I didn’t believe it was one ofย the actual WWII Tunnels but as I read through the signage, it suddenly became all too real. How I wish I have super power cameras to take picture despite the darkness.

Lastly, I am happy that the City of Pines’ Government decided to keep the essence of the park’s name in place. The Botanical Garden still boasts of nature trails filled with local plant genus and species! They are taken care of and far from the urban evils.

My suggestion is that if you are to go here, bring comfortable shoes. It would be such a waste if you are not going to hike and explore the area! Also, make sure your camera battery is loaded. You wouldn’t want to miss a chance to take photos. After all, it’s like going around the world in a day!
