“tourist spot for taking pictures only”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

I am not sure if we will be allowed to take a look inside the mansion and go around the premisses had we ask for. But as I noticed the other tourists, it seems like everybody just go there just to take pictures at the entrance and leave.

“Nice old Marcos Palace”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

It's an old Palace from the Marcoos era and a nice place to stop and take pictures. Don't go out of your way too much to see it, but if you're nearby, stop.

“Stop by to take pictures”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The Mansion is the official summer residence of the president of the Philippines in Baguio city. It's still good to stop by and have your photo taken in front of the building, but other than that, there's not much to do here. People aren't actually allowed to go inside for security purposes. Good thing that Wright Park is right in front of this building. Simply cross the street and go there afterwards. You can try horseback riding, which is the main attraction of the place.

“Nothing to do there”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

This place was okay to take pictures. Not sure what else you can do there. You can go up to the house, not to mention even thinking about going inside.

“Just like an old building”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Well all you can do here is take a picture few feet away from the gate. You cannot go near the actual mansion. What you can do is make it your background for your picture. That's all.
