If you're a fan of the hit teleserye Forevermore starring the love team of Enrique Gil and Lisa Soberano, then you'd probably want to visit these places in the country where they grow strawberries and relive the sweetest kilig moments.
Whether it's Christmas, New Year, or February, these places are must-visits:
1) Tuba, Benguet
The on-location shoot of Forevermore at Sitio Pungayan (now popularly known as "Sitio La Presa") in Tuba, Benguet has boosted tourism in the place.
Most of the romantic scenes were shot in the sitio's strawberry field, which is just 30 minutes away from Baguio City. Make your trip to the highlands more memorable by harvesting strawberries with your family or special someone.
2) Ocampo, Camarines Sur
What, strawberries in spicy Bicol?
You read it right. You can harvest strawberries in a tropical area such as Ocampo, Camarines Sur. Using strawberry shoots from Hawaii, the owner of the farm was able to propagate berries that are heat-resistant. You should see them yourself!
