“Not much flowers!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The last time we went here, I was so happy to see so many beautiful flowers. But this year, this summer to be exact, there were so few. A huge part of the place was under renovation. Good thing we walked a little further because there's this little hut with paintings and artistic items. A guy called Sultan Mang-oson does on the spot portrait sketch for P100. My daughter loved the idea of someone drawing her face but she got fussier and fussier inspite of the fact that it only took 15 minutes for the sketch to finish.

At the back of the art gallery is this little park that's Asian inspired. Not much to see but we opted to have some pictures taken just the same.

“lots of renovation going on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I brought my nephew to Baguio for the first time and he totally enjoyed the 1-1.5hours we spent here. It was a good stroll inside the garden and there are a lot of renovations going on. I would like to go back here soon to see the "new look" of the botanical garden.

“Escape from the Heat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I got here at 7:00 am. We were lucky that the place was open. The security guard was very friendly. We asked him the best route to enjoy the garden. It was like a place in twilight. It has a scenic view. It's a perfect place to relax. I felt like I was in the movie "Twilight". The weather was just perfect to stroll around the garden too!
