  • Three things not to miss in Panagbenga

    Two decades of blossoming together, Baguio is once again ready to welcome thousands of tourists from all over the country to celebrate the annual flower festival that is Panagbenga.
  • Panagbenga @Twenty

    As flowers go, in 1996 the Baguio Flower Festival proved it was not a night-blooming cereus; a flower that unfurls its petals in a matter of hours, reaching its fullest bloom at midnight. Thereafter, its petals wilt just as quickly so much so that by sunrise the flower head hangs limply on the stem. Instead, the ensuing 18 seasons for blooming that is the Panagbenga Festival evoked the staying power and magnificence of an orchid.
