The Closing. Kayang Hilltop, Baguio City. 8;30pm

Kayang-Hilltop street at Baguio City, during the closing of Panagbenga, displays the fireworks scene from Burnham Park. This hill connects the market and the different jeepney terminals, surrounded with old fashioned establishment converted to business hub.

At day you would see regular market activities. Wonder what the street turns into at night?

Treasured Ruins.  Baguio City, Philippines. Claudio-Carantes Street

We treasure what we do not want to get ruined. This is how creative the people are in this city. Even ruins can turn into treasures.

This ruin used to stand in this busy street which brings tourists to famous Baguio destinations.

Now, this ruin will now only be treasured in this photograph.

Crossing Corners. Baguio City (02/22/2018; 6:00pm)

One of the busiest roads in the city where people cross from all corners of this intersection, and scurrying vehicles meet head to tail.

The Bayanihan Lodge in Baguio – an old architectural styled building found across Burnham Park along Shanum Street in Baguio.

This treasured architecture faces property concerns with the local government’s aim to develop the city. The old lodge houses the city’s famous’ Ukay-Ukay (bargain market for clothes).

Sustainable Tourism: An Invitation to Participate

“Alay sa Kalikasan”. (A Service to Nature). These volunteers stayed at the end of the parade. No trace of mess and trash were left on the streets after everyone has gone.

The Street Dance Parade and the Flower Float Parade mark the height of the celebration during Panagbenga Festival in Baguio City inviting tourists or visitors to keep coming back in this town.

Tourism treats local social and economic entrepreneurs with guests from different places to patronize products and services offered by the local people. Sustaining the flow of trade and other activities which help promote home-based potentials and opportunities.

One of the threats of tourism however is pollution to the environment because of neglect to practice keeping the surroundings clean during festivities.

“Alay sa Kalikasan” (A Service to Nature). Holding broomsticks and dustpans, and a banner not to adorn their own group, and joining the parade not to perform but to serve nature by keeping the tail of the performers and street dancers out of trash and mess from the paraders; these are local volunteers from the community committed to give service.

Reminding everyone who participate in the parades- that each one can do their own simple share of awareness in keeping the environment clean. One may not have to bring her own broomstick; it is enough just to carry a selfie-stick and then not leaving any trash behind but properly practice throwing them in the right place.

So everybody may always receive this warm invitation as they go, “Thank you for visiting! Please come again!”
