“very nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

The view is fantastic, but the stalls and souvenir shops are a bit too much. Lots of kitsch, such as photo taking with huge dogs wearing sun glasses. Not really my style, but the Filipinos love it.

“It gets more congested every year”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

The place, although has better facilities this year is also more crowded with stalls, and vendors. It makes the sightseeing portion of the visit just secondary now.

“The place has a good view and it is now cleaner than before!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

Hi, I have been there just 2 days ago and the place is now cleaner than before (last 2005? I think) The last time I went there doesnt have patrols and there are a lot of litters on the place but now it is more properly managed. The place has a lot of pictorial sights that can offer. Many Igorots (natives) are letting you shoot their dogs (St. Bernard, I assume) for just P10 or $20cents, even on a horse while you ride on it, or just to wear their native costumes fully equipped. (take note, you can have it unlimited shots) The place has a good bird's eye view as the place overlooks the whole baguio. One thing I didnt like is that there are a lot of houses now on the part of the view.

“Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

The Mines View Park offers spectacular view of the mountains. There are also Igorot costumes where you can wear their stuff and have unlimited photos for only Php 10. They also mini shops that sells affordable knitted stuff. There are 2 or 3 St. Bernards for photo ops. I think it is against the animal rights for dogs to be used as means of income. I pity the dogs who have to wear sunglasses and be lugged around using their collars.

“A Park that has lost its Charm”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

In the good old days this park main attraction are the kids standing on the cliff catching coins trown by the visitors,its practice are consider very dangerous cause you get killed once you falls down.thats why it was banned by the city govt a few years back,nowadays it had too many shops selling goods to the tourist.Any place that is too commercialize are being avoided by frequent travellers.
