Baguio City, Philippines- Locals and tourists in Baguio City can now visit the Japanese-Korean garden at Baguio City Country Club for free from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily.
The garden is one of the BCC's contributions to Baguio City’s attempt at slowly reopening its tourism industry amid the pandemic. The garden was officially opened this February 18, 2022, during the commemoration of the 117th year of the creation of the establishment.
People who visit the Japanese-Korean Garden can experience the honored culture of Japan and Korea through its plants, trees, and garden arrangements. It is also where one can find the famous Cherry Blossom Trees.
In an interview with Philippine Information Agency Baguio, Anthony De Leon, General Manager of BCC mentioned the move is one of the attempts of the BCC to find ways to innovate. It can be recalled that BCC introduced the Baguio City Christmas Village in the past years.
“We always try to innovate and improve our facilities and services. That is what makes us unique in terms of our operation in the industry,” he expressed.
Meantime, Mayor Benjamin Magalong reminded tourists that requirements for entry into Baguio City are still in place.
“However, it is now lighter. For example, we do not require antigen tests for those coming from alert level 2 so they can freely come up. We are not yet putting limit to the number of visitors but we are studying closely the situation so we could determine the threshold,” he explained.
