Strawberry taho is a must try. You can spot some taho vendors roaming around the park and strawberry taho is sold for PHP 20 per cup. There are also different souvenirs being sold inside the Botanical Garden from key chains to different ornaments for your home.
You need to descend a winding rocky stairway to reach the observation deck. Be careful because the rocks are sometimes slippery. We reach Mines View Park around 3PM so the fog is starting to cover the mountain views. I suggest that you visit this place on or before noontime so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. Different souvenir stores are scattered all over the place selling weaved clothes, plants, stuffs for home and foods such as strawberries, peanut brittle and a lot more. This was our last stop so we have decided to buy souvenirs and "pasalubong" (homecoming gifts) for my nephews and nieces. A jeepney station is just at the entrance of the park that will take you back to city.
We spend the rest of the day in SM City Baguio so that my daughter can play around, to have a snack and also to check the viewing terraces of the mall. You can see the whole city at the terraces of SM City Baguio. I enjoyed the fresh and cold breeze at these terraces. Here are some of my photos.
Baguio City is for those who loves nature and for those who wants to escape the summer heat even just for a while. Even if it’s cold here, bring extra clothes and some bottled water especially if you’re going to tour on foot. Be sure to plan where you wanted to go before going to Baguio City so you can visit all the places that you wanted to see. For commuters, visit this website Directions On Web for the locations of the jeepneys going to the different tourist spots in Baguio City. To make things easy try "Hop On, Hop Off" vans for PHP 400 per person per day. These vans will take you to the different tourist spots in Baguio City without worrying of getting lost and without the hassle of asking for directions. To fully understand what this is, their trip schedules, the tourist spots that you will visit and everything else visit their website at City Trails Corporation. And lastly, always think of safety and enjoy your stay. Happy Summer!
