Benguet – Salad Bowl of the Philippines

The high altitude location of the province is very ideal for growing almost all types of upland vegetables. With this, Benguet received the title, “Salad Bowl of the Philippines”. Most of the vegetable supply in Metro Manila comes from the province. Aside from being the source of fresh vegetables, Benguet has become the getaway of local and foreign tourists who would like to cool down and escape the scorching heat of the summer sun.
