Burnham Park Paddle Boating in Baguio City

This lake is located at the heart of the city proper and has a wide open space. You must-try their boating adventure at the man-made lake with a beautiful boat deign like swan, bird, dragon and other animals and sea creature. Rental fee is about  Php 150 - 300 pesos depending on the size and design of the boat that definitely suits your budget. Jane and I thought of doing some paddle boating but it was so hot that we changed our minds. The Burnham Park is most accessible to tourist and most convenient to all locals.   Aside from boating, you can rent a bicycle at the side of the park near the food stalls, it is usually charge you from Php 60-100 pesos per hour. 

Garden Exhibit at Burnham Park Baguio City 2013

I really enjoy staying at Baguio City during summer because this is time when flowers blooms around Burnham Park, you will feel the fresh breeze of the air. They have an ongoing exhibit of unique landscape & flower arrangement, organic garden, garden design & selling area for all their buyers. Each flower garden display has its unique design and concept. I enjoyed taking photos of their artworks and landscape. The artworks display in the exhibit were made by wood cavers and has view of duck pond, garden fountain, organic farm and mini-forest. Walking tour is must-try activities during your trip and the view around are truly enticing.  It was an amazing city to live for, well worth the visit and I'm keep going back.

Panagbenga Festival 2013 Float Parade in Baguio City

February is a flower festival month in Baguio, so my friends and I dropped to Baguio City from our trip in Sagada & Banue. It is a sunny day when we arrived at the city proper. Traffic? Yes, sobrang traffic. But the streets are full of visitors and the ambiance was so colorful and festive. The Panagbenga 2013 is fantastic and the float parade showcases the best in floral artistry. It's really more fun in the Baguio City and there are a lots of foreigners were present in this magnificent event.  The highlight of this event are the Baguio's Float Parade & the Street Dance Competition 2013 and it is a month long celebration.

Panagbenga 2013 Photos in Baguio City

There is a lot of reason to choose and explore Baguio City because of the people, foods, colorful festival, tourist attraction, cultures & pasalubong as well. Jane and I enjoyed the colorful festival, street dance competition and the famous Session Road is blooming - literally! hahaha. This year's event is more successful than last year because it's well-organized, signage & advisory regarding traffic route. We went to the Athletic Bowl and witness the colorful floats, decoration from different participants and companies which is the city known as the home of abounding flower depots and cultural tradition in the Philippines. I took a lot of photos and video all over the place, I didn't expect how crowded the area but I really like about the event is how creative the Filipinos are. Did you that Panagbenga is a Kankanaey word that means " blossoming of flowers" Next post is roaming around Burnham Park & Do-it-yourself travel day tour.
