Baguio City has plenty of tourist attractions and one of these is Mines View Park.
The park has a observation deck that gives visitors an overlooking view of the abandoned gold and copper mines of Itogon, Benguet, as well as the Amburayan Valley. This is basically the main attraction of Mines View Park, but there are also other things to do such as shopping (or window shopping) for plants and souvenirs, taking (paid) pictures with the famous St. Bernard dogs and colorful horses, renting traditional Igorot costumes for photo ops, and maybe trying your luck with the park’s wishing well. We didn’t do any of these though because the place was just too crowded at the time, and I honestly felt bad for the animals that looked really tired. The view was breathtaking though, even if we weren’t able to take a decent picture at the crowded observation deck.
I also got my first taste of Baguio’s famous strawberry taho right outside Mines View Park. It was… strawberry good. lol 😀
