If you have a green thumb or is a foodie who’d like to know where your food comes from, a visit to a farm might just be your thing. At a farm, not only do you get to take home fresh produce but also learn farming techniques used to produce your favorite fruits and veggies. Some farms even offer farm-to-table dining, turning their bounty into delectable dishes which customers can enjoy within the property.
If you’re heading to Baguio, you might want to check out the strawberry farm in La Trinidad, Benguet. There are also a number of organic farms in Tagaytay which is just approximately two hours away from Manila.
With Holy Week just a few weeks away, ShoppersGuide readers have also thought of going on a pilgrimage to reflect on their faith. If you want to go beyond the practice of Visitia Iglesia (Church Visit), there are pilgrimage organizers who put together itineraries for local or international spiritual journeys to various destinations such as Batanes, Bukidnon, Japan, Korea, Israel, and Palestine, to name a few.
When going on a pilgrimage, remember to dress and behave appropriately, especially in places of worship. Turn off your gadgets and set aside time to reflect and read the scriptures to make your journey truly meaningful.
