The Picturesque Baguio Botanical Garden

Tell your friends about it!

 

Located near Wright Park and Teachers Camp is the perfect spot for visitors who prefer quieter (and greener) spaces- the Baguio Botanical Garden.

In the garden’s main entrance, there is a group of Igorots dressed in their traditional attire and tourists can take pictures with them with a minimal fee. Also known as the Centennial Park or Igorot Village, the botanical garden is a place where you can find towering pine trees, colorful flowers, and many kinds of plants, as well as native Igorot huts, sculptures, and relics. Anyone can enter the garden without having to pay an entrance fee.

The Baguio Botanical Garden does not only boast of its beautiful landscapes, however. Also found inside is the entrance of the Japanese Tunnel, which is said to lead to parts of Outlook Drive, the Presidential Mansion, and Barangay Pacdal.  It was built by the Japanese during World War II, but has just been recently opened for tourists. We went back to where we entered after a few minutes though. To be honest, walking inside the tunnel was a bit creepy for me.

Overall, I really liked the atmosphere in the botanical garden. Check out my Baguio City travel video to see more of it.
