“Nice View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place was crowded when we went here, since it was a weekend. You would need to go through the shops to get to the actual view. Lots of photo op places (not necessarily worth paying for) such as a photo with a St. Bernard, trying on traditional clothes or with a horse with pink hair.

Must-Try: There are vendors selling strawberry taho for PHP20. Taho is soy bean pudding served warm and traditionally topped with syrup and mini tapioca balls (sago). It is only in Baguio that they sell taho with strawberry flavored syrup.

Note: You would need to pay to use the bathroom.

“Rainy Visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Cold to colder as it was raining during our visit. Travel was smooth despite the foggy highways, good thing the driver was careful. The must-try strawberry taho was a usual "pampainit" and afforded not to buy any pricey souvenir.

“Not A Lot”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Bad weather when I went there, the usual collection of high priced souvenir shops and little else of interest. Too foggy to see anything so cant comment on the supposed views of Baguio

“Great tourist attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Essentially this is a market, along with a strip of some shops, and they also have a lookout to see the nearby canyon/mountains.

It's quite touristy, and I'd say it's a must-do when going to Baguio. Many of the Jeeps will take you there, otherwise it's a 5 - 10 minute taxi ride from SM.

“Unsafe Structures”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

iv been to Mine's view several times, 6times i guess, but the fencing structures on the view area does not meet proper specs and unsafe for tourists. there should be more sign ages for tourists to be careful especially on steps/stairs going to the view area.
