Baguio's Annual Christmas Village Is Now Open
It's inspired by Game of Thrones.
(SPOT.ph) When it comes to decking the halls, Filipinos in almost every part of the country go all out. And if you want to experience winter wonderland (or at least, something close to it) locally, you can hop on a bus and go on a trip to one of the chilliest places in the country—Baguio Country Club Christmas Village in Baguio City, Benguet. The holiday attraction is open daily until January 5, 2020. Entrance fee is at P120.
"Our Christmas celebration in the city will be fun and exciting because of our unique offerings for this year in partnership with the private sector that will play a key role in the implementation of our programs and projects," Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong said in a statement after the soft opening of the Baguio Country Club (BCC) Christmas Village on October 23.
For 2019, BCC takes inspiration from the most famous movie and TV series of the year: Avengers and Game of Thrones. Dragons made of flowers and a replica of the Avengers headquarters, reportedly made from recycled materials, are a couple of the most eye-catching features. Staff members dress up as your favorite Avengers and GoT characters, too.
Baguio Country Club Christmas Village is open from Monday to Thursday, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.; and from Friday to Sunday (including holidays), from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. It runs until January 5, 2020. Entrance fee is at P120.
