Review of Mines View Park

Mines View Park
Ranked #17 of 69 things to do in Baguio
Attraction details
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This park is not the same as it was 10 or so years ago. Way too many vendor stalls, too many billboards and really crowded. Not worth the visit.

The last time I was here was in the early 1970's. Back then it was a small place, pretty much all open air. You could buy rabbit fur hats and get your silhouette cut out in paper.

Today it's a huge shopping area with vendors selling all sorts of things. There are buildings all along the roadside to hold the shops.

The view at the top is still the same and well worth a visit, but if you're not interested in buying anything, the rest of the experience is somewhat off-putting.

We were dismayed when we first reached the place. Mines View Park is no longer the attraction it once was. There are now huge concrete buildings hiding the view from the street. There is also now a 3-storey building with much too pricey souvenir stores on the ground floor. It has become too crowded there now that the traffic has become very bad. Mines View Park in my opinion has become a tourist trap.

If you want to take a good view of the Cordillera Mountain ranges definitely this is the best spot. And if you are craving for Baguio treats there are a lot of stores to choose from.
