La Trinidad, Benguet

TRAVEL DATE: April 7 - 12, 2009

La Trinidad is also located in the Province of Benguet and one of the major tourist spots which you must visit! Just like Baguio City, La Trinidad also has a cold atmosphere and weather due to its mountainous terrain and high altitude. The difference between the two? - it's much colder in La Trinidad!

Besides strawberries, they also have lettuce here in which the lushness is very evident and no one can surely deny these are fresh from the ground!

TRAVEL TIP: You can ask a local farmer that you want to pick your own lettuce and buy it per kilo. It's surely not a problem for them.

The roads from Baguio are very nice so you will comfortably enjoy the scenery along the way! Visit La Trinidad and never forget to grab some strawberry jams from Good Shepherd Farms for pasalubong for friends. It only costs PHP 30 per bottle (regular size)!
