Strawberry-Picking at Strawberry Farm, La Trinidad, Benguet

Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet lets visitors pick the strawberries themselves. Tourists can choose a farm for their strawberry-picking and pay for their harvest afterward. Price per kilo is slightly higher than if they were to buy the strawberries pre-packed by the vendors. Still, it’s a fun experience for kids and city folks not used to the farm life.

It may be hard to believe, but there are people who do not know what a strawberry plant looks like. That’s why many tourists do try to include La Trinidad’s Strawberry Farm in their itinerary. By picking the fruits themselves, farm visitors are sure to take home the freshest strawberry fruits. Visitors can opt to simply buy pre-packed strawberries from vendors lined along the farm’s roadside.


It is ideal to visit the strawberry farm during strawberry season, which normally runs from November to May, with peaks during the first few months of the year.

After our Strawberry Farm visit, we went straight to La Trinidad Market to buy fresh vegetables. Prices here are a bit lower than in Baguio City’s Public Market. We made the strawberry farm and La Trinidad market trips our last activities. We headed back to Manila right after buying vegetables from La Trinidad public market. That way, the fruits and vegetables stay fresh.

Escaping to Baguio City, Staying Away From SM Baguio

Baguio City is the first place that comes to mind as one thinks of an escape from the sweltering El Nino heat in Manila. Baguio is also currently experiencing summery heat during the day, but it’s not at all like the shocking and unbearable temperatures in Metro Manila.

Baguio is all about mountain-cool air, pine trees, flowers.

Most people go to SM Baguio now, perhaps for lack of worthwhile tourist attractions or maybe they just don’t know where to go. When we went there, however, we tried to stay away from SM Baguio and to stick to good ‘ol Baguio – taking the Session Road, Pacdal and Camp John Hay way.
