La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said that the last holiday season has affirmed the town’s status as one of Benguet’s tourist destinations.
The Benguet politiko explained that the influx of tourists in La Trinidad was brought about their desire to visit the strawberry fields.
“We were told by many tourists who visited that their trip to Baguio will not be complete if they do not have a strawberry picking activity,” Salda said.
He earlier said that the town was caught by surprise by the deluge of tourists.
“We cannot send them away just because it was causing traffic in La Trinidad,” Salda said.
