      The Botanical Garden in Baguio City is too simple. I have been to a lot of gardens in other regions in the Philippines that can sustain plants that need cooler weather. I was disappointed with the Botanical Garden.

      Beside the entrance, there were a number of Igorots (the ethnic tribes who flourished in the mountainous regions). They have made a living out of having their pictures taken with tourists.

      I was more interested in taking


      a photo of the welcome sign and not the Igorots. But these darned people wouldn’t move away from my camera.

      In fact, they posed in front of me and said it was only worth 50 pesos. I respect these people, but they should also learn to respect other people.

      I didn’t go to Baguio to see them, I went there to see the sights. When I entered, the whole place was full of vendors.

      People ...


      • selling food and other souvenirs were scattered all over the premises. It was really heartbreaking to see some parts of the garden littered with plastic and other wrappers from the food that was being sold.

        The tourists and the vendors ruined the beautiful plants and the garden landscapes. Maybe there wasn’t enough money to keep the park clean but the least these vendors can do is pick up after themselves and after their customers.

        Or

        they could at least have a garbage can close to where they were selling. The once beautiful Botanical Garden has been turned to a dirty garbage garden.

        The whole experience of going through the trails and looking through the statues and huts to showcase the ethnic lifestyle as well as looking at the wonderful plants that flourished in the cool weather of Baguio City was tainted with garbage. It’s a shame that the locals themselves have done this.
