The shop sells flowering plants and flowers in exploding different colors. A real feast for the eyes that really enticed me to take beautiful macro shotsof different flowers at the sorroundings. No wonder, Baguio is a major source of flowers for major ocassions in the country.
Check my travelouges for the colorful pictures.
What to buy: Buy flowers for your sweetie pie. Or, buy flowering plants but just be sure that they grow in your place at such a higher temperature. Ask the shop owner for recommendations.
SM Baguio is a large shopping mall on the top of Session Road. It's very popular with the locals and is quite an interesting place to visit. Before you enter there are some craft stores nearby. I highly recommend going to Sagada weaving (sell shirts, bags, textiles). To enter the mall, you have to be somewhat searched. They just lightly rub you down and look into your bags. There is a large cinema, food court, lots of restaurants and shops. Definately worth a visit.
All over Baguio, you can find people selling various food items. Strawberry jam, cookies, chocolate covered marshmellows and corn flakes. The majority of Baguio's tourists are from other parts of the Philippines and this stuff is really popular. We bought a few jars of cookies as gifts. Prices are mostly fixed. They usually have a deal like three small jars of jam for 100 pesos. The city market has the biggest selection of these items.
Just by asking a few questions this young lady from the many vendors showed me all the shops where I could find some good items.
