HOW TO GO TO LA TRINIDAD STRAWBERRY FARM, BENGUET

[LA TRINIDAD] ▬ THE DESTINATION: STRAWBERRY FARM OF LA TRINIDAD VALLEY


Getting to the strawberry farm is just easy as long as you follow these 3 simple steps. Let's begin!


▬ Getting There: Strawberry Farm in 3 Easy Steps ▬


#BAGUIO


STEP 1 ► Where to wait for jeep: For first time travelers to the strawberry farm, I suggest to wait for jeep in front of the Baguio City Hall. The reason why I am suggesting this is because the city hall is a prominent landmark in the city that is very easy to locate.

[BAGUIO] ▬ WAIT IN FRONT OF THE CITY HALL


The present terminal of jeepneys bound for La Trinidad is at the corner of Magsaysay and T Alonzo Streets. Of course, if this is your first time, you probably don't know yet where these streets are located, do you? So for convenience, stop in front of the city hall.

STEP 2 ► What jeep route should you take: Once you're in front of the city hall of Baguio, you'll see jeepneys passing here. Look for a jeep with a Baguio-Buyagan route. Ride on!

STEP 3 ► Where to stop or drop off: Once inside the jeep, you can simply ask the driver to drop you at the strawberry farm. To remind him, you may seat beside him in front (if the seat is available) or get the space just behind the driver's seat. In this case, you can communicate directly to the driver and remind him to drop you at strawberry farm.

Well, if you want a landmark, look for the Benguet State University which is located right of the road. The farm is located at left.

You can also alight in front of the Benguet State University. But you can directly request the driver to drop you at the junction road going to the strawberry fields. That's it!


▬ Travel Guide and Tips ▬


HERE ARE SOME INFORMATION AND travel guides I included to at least give you an idea what to expect in this destination. They might help you in planning your trip.
  • There is no entrance fee to the strawberry farm.
  • The La Trinidad valley is significantly hotter compared with Baguio's air temperature. You may not want to be sun burnt. I suggest go there early or bring umbrella if you wish to go there at high noon.
  • Regular travel time going to the strawberry fields from the Baguio city hall is around 30 minutes. That's around 3 kilometers. Tsk! Baguio traffic congestion is common.
  • There are no restrooms inside the farm. If the nature is calling you, there are restrooms outside with fee.
  • There are pasalubong centers in and out of the farm—so many of them!
  • You can also pick your own strawberries at 500 pesos per kilogram. Quite expensive though. You're paying for the experience.
  • Aside from strawberries, there are also other plants cultivated therein like lettuce. Commercial flowering plants are also present here especially if it's not strawberry season.
  • Fare from the Baguio city hall is around 12 pesos as of this writing. This may vary in the future.

That's it! This is a travel guide post for La Trinidad strawberry farm. ▬ end

    Yeah, great thing I'm less than an hour away from the Cordilleran Abra, about 4 hours to Mt Province and around 5 hours to Benguet by land. So everytime I miss the Cordilleras, I'm just a bus ride away▬one of the perks of living up North. :)
