Of course much of the work has to be done by the locals.It's nice to know that some sectors are putting up to the challenge.Blogging for example has been a dead zone in Baguio until recently.After the success of the 1st Baguio Blogging Conference last year ,Cordillera bloggers are positioning themselves to be the social media authority in the City of Pines.
I was therefore excited when their leader,Vince of http://lakbaybaguio.com/ invited me for the first ever B3X: Baguio-Benguet Bloggers Appreciation Tour 2013.
Vincent took the inspiration from established blogging communities in Southern Philippines particularly that of General Santos City.Have you heard of the SEX Tour?Quite catchy right?While you might think of a sexual connotation,S.E.X actually stands for Socsargen EXperience where members of the media and online community are taken into a cultural social and food immersion tour of the region.It's about time Northern Luzon has an answer to it coz yes,may asim pa ang Baguio.
And that's what I have proven myself.Being a frequent visitor of the place,I realized during B3X Tour 2013 that there are still many things to discover in Baguio City.
Here is our itinerary for the tour as well as some of the summary posts of the experience.
- Panagbenga Grand Street Dancing Parade
- Burnham Park Landscapes
- Lourdes Grotto
- Panagbenga Grand Float Parade
- Strawberry Farm
- Wright Park
- Botanical Garden
- Mansion House
We went back to the hotel to freshen up and had supper at Don Henricos SM Baguio.What better way to end the day but with large pizzas and buffalo wings!
