In Mines View, for 20 pesos ($0.5) we enjoy taking pictures more by wearing this native Ifugao dresses. For this, you can wear this dress, accessories and pose in a Mines View backdrop. We enjoyed it so much! I recommend this, just to get a feel of Ifugao’s native dress!
Tip: Ifugao Costumes are for rent are everywhere.
My favorite hotel in Baguio, maybe because i only had a chance to stay in 2 hotels, here in Manor Hotel (at Camp John Hay) and recently in a budget hotel in Leonard Wood. Anyways, booked in this hotel from June to September to avail their 50% off promo! www.campjohnhay.ph
Here are some photos with my family in Manor Hotel, we had tea and dessert after our lunch just to take pictures of the beautiful view.
It is another great summer getaway for us three in Baguio City, plus we bring along our cousins Eilor and Empoy. It’s a 6 hour drive from Binan, Laguna or around 5 hours drive from Manila via SLEX-Edsa-NLEX-SCTEX-Marcos Highway. You will spend P1,000 ($23) for toll fees.
Our first stop is Camp John Hay to have a picnic for lunch. I’m happy to do this, I dont even remember the last time I have picnic with my family. Nanay prepares chicken adobo, boiled egg and tomatoes. Here, the table is rented for P100 ($3), but it’s really sad to know when we saw a lot of people who don’t want to pay even they used the table 😦
After that we went around and found out that we can enter the Historical Core featuring a museum at the Commander’s Cottage, Bell Ampitheater, a Butterfly Sanctuary. Entrance fee is P50 ($1.5) for adults and ) P30 for students and senior citizens.
Burnham Park is located in the center of Baguio City, you cannot missed this place. This is the mother of all parks in Baguio City, though i still prefer the one in Camp John Hay. Around this park city’s commercial center Session Road, majestic Baguio Cathedral, our City Hall, and the hugely popular Baguio City Market were built around Burnham Park. It may be accessed from any one of the following roads: Harrison , Kisad Road, Governor Pack and Magsaysay Roads.
This is our last stop before we head to the City Market to shop for pasalubongs.
Boats are for rent for P100 ($2.5)/boat.
It’s my first time in Mines View, and i was kind of disappointed for me because i think business and vendors all over the place mess up the whole place. I’m not against business opportunities for people in Baguio it’s just that we as Filipinos should maintain the natural beauty of place like Mines View. Anyways, here are some views.
