If you’re like Bilbo Baggins, who is always, always, always, up for an adventure, you’ll definitely love this new Hobbit-inspired tourist destination in San Fabian, Pangasinan! The colorful attraction is settled right in the middle of the farmlands and heavily resembles Bilbo Baggins’ Hobbit House–from the exteriors, even to the little details inside.
Hobbit Farmville, as it is called by its owners, is one of the newest eco-tourist attractions in Lipit-Tomeeng, San Fabian. The tiny hobbit house is only a small part of the enormous farmland owned by husband-and-wife tandem Marcel and Genelyn Mendoza. It is expected that the area will include more attractions and amenities in the years to come. But for now, we’ll talk about what Farmville can offer to us now.

What to do in Farmville, San Fabian?
The hobbit house, although it is obviously the main attraction of the area, only occupies little space in the farmland. This means that there is a lot of ground to cover and explore. Visitors can also visit and help the farmers during harvest season, and even bring home some of the produce for a small price!
If the photos of Farmville are not enough proof that it is Instagram-worthy, we don’t know what is. Every corner of the area is Instagrammable–from the lush greenery, rustic decors, and colorful exteriors. The only thing you’ll have to think about is doing the perfect pose.
Drink and Relax
Aside from the awe-striking views and decor, what attracts tourists to Farmville is its food and drinks. In fact, the establishment serves the largest milk tea in the province. We’re talking about 2.7L here! Don’t worry, though, they do serve smaller sizes.
If you find yourself craving samgyupsal in the middle of a farm, you’re in luck! Farmville also offers unlimited samgyupsal and other deals. Aside from Korean BBQ, they also serve free breakfast and milk tea for guests who stay overnight.
Not ready to leave San Fabian? Experience The Hobbit in a different way! Farmville has two themed rooms available (as of the moment) for overnight stays. Guests can also rent a kawa bath, which is undeniably one of the perfect ways to spend the morning!
