4. Flowers are in full bloom!

Aside from being the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio is also known as the City of Flowers. So the local government annually organizes a month-long celebration of the Panagbenga Festival. All activities lined up are the tribute to the city’s blossoms so expect all the colors and the fresh smell of flowers surround you this season. February 24 will be the street dance party celebration and on February 25 will be the flower float parade. It is expected to have a lot of tourists going up to Baguio for the festival. In 2017, there are estimated 1.3 million tourists went to celebrate with the locals.
