Ever dreamed of the lavender fields in France, tulips in the Netherlands or even the famed Sakura in Japan? of course, we all did! These are so high in my bucketlist and I made a promise to myself that I will visit these places not later than next year. However, while trying to put myself to sleep last night, my fantasies were somehow fulfilled by the images I saw from Argie Banaag. Little did I know that we have the Northern Blossoms in Atok Benguet, Philippines!

France? Japan? No. This is Atok, Philippines.

This reminds me so much of the flower farms in Taichung, Taiwan and I’m glad that Philippines has its own version now. So while I wait for the perfect opportunity to travel to Europe or go back to Japan for the Cherry Blossoms, I booked a ticket to Manila next month to personally see the Philippines’ version of the Garden of Eden.

Located on high elevation, Atok’s weather is chilly which makes it perfect for a summer getaway. the municipality also thrives in farming vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, broccoli, sweet peas and cabbages. A lot of unique flora can also be found here. Take a look at some of the photos.

If you’ve read the glorious book, THE SHACK, this photo will give you all of the right feels. 💙
Everyone’s idea of a perfect sunrise.

HOW TO GET THERE?

From Manila:

*Ride a bus heading to Baguio such as the Genesis and Victory Liner in Cubao, Avenida, and
Sampaloc.




From Baguio City:

*Ride any bus going to Bontoc or Sagada. (Sunrise Bus or GL Trans on Dangwa Station or
Slaughterhouse Terminal) The bus ride is 1.5 hours from Baguio City.
*You may also opt to take a van from Dangwa Station.
*Drop off at Atok Municipal Hall for tourist registration.
*Walk a few meters down the town proper and locate Northern Blossom Farm.

Entrance Fee: ₱200

UPDATE

So last month, we traveled to Atok to see the northern blossoms for ourselves and it did not disappoint. I really loved the vibe in Atok and weather is cooler here compared to Sagada or Baguio. I suggest that you stay there overnight if you want to witness the spectacular sunrise.

Heads up! Just like any flowers, the flora here also has its season. I was told that the best time to go here is between the months of February to April when the cabbage roses are in full bloom. When we went. I saw some parts of the farm being harvested already and flowers start to wilt. Nonetheless, the place still managed to look magical in the morning. It looked straight off a Korean drama. hahaha! Here’s what we came up with.

Minsan isang araw sa Benguet. ❤
I was getting the whole Kdrama vibes here.
My most favorite videographer na wala pang nagawa ni isang video from all of our trips! Hahaha!

 

There’s just something special about summer sunrises and sunsets. Insane colors!




Salamat sa Saglit. Yan ang sabi ng araw sa buwan nung siya’y lumisan.

 

Insane; that was all I ever said when I witnessed this behind me.
