For a lot of out-of-towners, Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines, the ultimate place to go for its cool weather, has lost its charm.
A giant mall wants to put a parking lot in the place where hundreds of pine trees are.
Shopping, dining, and enjoying nature is still possible, though…
Nestled in Camp John Hay is a place where the tallest building is no taller than the tallest pine trees!
And walking around the area gives you much pleasure as you enjoy the beautiful blooms and the sweet pine tree scent (no escalators, just pure nature!).
The Baguio Technohub located at Camp John Hay is a group of quaint, tiny little shops of fastfood, coffee shops, convenience store, , sports houses and other retail stores. Those little shops remind me of when I was a little girl and my grandpa would bring me to this tiny smoke shop where I will feast on imported chocolates and comic books while be reads the newspapers and buys his cigars.
The Technohub has been designed to follow the area’s natural landscape. It is a showcase of how you can develop commercial places without harming the pine trees.
