“Souvenir Galore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

When I go to Baguio I always make sure to go here to buy my pasalubong. If you want to Buy cheap pasalubong from Baguio, Mines View Park is the best place to go. All kinds of Pasalubong are there already from food, keychains, dream catchers, plants, shirts, bags, slippers, etc.. . You just need to choose which of the stalls offer the lower price.

Aside from the pasalulubong you could take pictures at Mines View wearing an Ifugao clothing for a minimal price of 10.00php you could also take pictures with the St.Bernard dog and the horses there as well.

“Best places to take pictures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

There was a large number of stalls selling attractive bonsai plants, everlasting flowers, souvenirs and street food such as delicious hot corn on the cob.The path to the actual view is most unsuitable for the disabled. A large number of visitors congregated along the way with some dressing up in native Igarot peoples' costumes or having their children pose with a giant St Bernard dog, both for a fee. Our driver had to do a circle and return to pick us up 25 minutes after we started.

“still can't figure out what's there to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

we went there because it has always been associated with Baguio visit since I was a child but there is not much to see except foliage and houses from that vantage point. The park was too commercialized, too crowded - it was difficult to get to the viewing deck because of the number of people. They even had St. Bernards there for photo ops. I did not like how these dogs are being exploited for tourism.

“cold breeze and fantastic views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

one of the best places to take pictures while in baguio, you can also buy souvenirs here but expect it to be a bit pricey than other attractions in the city. Here you can see and take pictures with the horses and dogs that are sooo cute! Very relaxing indeed.

“Views at the edge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is like the last part of our stroll while we we're here, it's pretty much at the edge where you enjoy the breath taking view aside from the one in Good Shepperd which is just adjacent of this area. You can also try taking pictures with the locals for a fee that is not that much. Souvenirs, you can also buy it here and they are quite a lot so make sure you ask for discounts so that you can buy a lot haha.
