Now, Benguet province has its own version of the Busan Gamcheon Culture Village in South Korea and the Favela Painting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

With the initiative of the Department of Tourism in Cordillera under the Rev-Bloom project, the sitios Stonehill, Botiwtiw and Sadjap in Barangay Balili, La Trinidad is now a sight to behold while stuck in traffic going to and from La Trinidad. The project is called “Colors of Stobosa,” which came from the names if the said sitios (A sitio is a part of a village that is usually far from the center).

The project started in January of this year and was unveiled on June 23. The project was a success with the partnership of DOT-Cordillera with the local government and a paint brand which donated almost 3,000 gallons of paint. The Tam-Awan Village artists led the designing of the project. Residents in the sitios with other volunteer organizations helped in painting almost 200 houses. More than 500 individuals lend their hands to finish this project that features giant flowers with different colors of petals.

Tourists headed to the Strawberry Farm will be able to catch a sight of the Colors of Stobosa. It is located near the boundary arc of Baguio City and La Trinidad.

DOT-CAR is eyeing to do the same project in other residential places in Baguio City.
