    Burnham Park

    by herzog63 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Burnham Park is a great place to people watch! Or meet a talk with locals. Beware that there are a few scammers mixed in the crowd too!! You will see Igorot beggars too. It is sad to see these people who've lost their traditional way of life just walk around begging. You can rent small boats and paddle around the small man-made pond that is in the middle of the park.

    The Mansion, the summer Malacañang.

    by birgitte Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is the former summer residence of President Marcos. It is known as "The Mansion." I think this is now the official residence of the President of the Philippines after President Marcos was exiled.

    I am not sure if this has been opened to the public for tours... but it is one of those that I think merits becoming a tourist spot. We should all have a chance to view the grounds and the insides of the mansion. After all, the Marcos era was very significant in Philippine history.

    Fondest memory: This very beautiful gate fronts the Mansion. Visitors are not allowed on the Mansion grounds but you can take pictures from the gate. The guards were very friendly and allowed me to take a picture past the gate so I could get a clearer picture of the Mansion. Even if they do not allow you in, you could still get a beautiful photograph of the gate and the mansion together. I have another picture of the gate in my Baguio travelogue.

    Botanical Gardens

    by birgitte Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is the entrance to the Botanical Gardens. If I remember correctly, this is where genuine Igorots (natives of the Baguio area) show you how they live and work.. this is a sort of living museum. Friendly Igorots in full costume would pose for you for a minimal fee. Crafts are also sold here. Artists also do paintings using the sun, or rather, the sun's rays as their palette.

    Romantic Parks

    by birgitte Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Baguio has a lot of parks. No wonder this is a favorite destination of honeymooners because it is so conducive to romance. As you visit the various parks, you will enjoy walks by reflection pools and see a lot of landmarks that are begging to be taken pictures of.

    But eh... its not for everybody. Some might not find this exciting so to each his own. Just that the parks can be a nice place to jog in or people watch.

    City of Pines

    by birgitte Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: For a city, Baguio does have a lot of names. It is also known as the "City of Pines" because yes, the trees are mostly pine trees. These are what makes breathing Baguio air so refreshing. I think more than any of the sightseeing spots, what makes a visit here enjoyable is the refreshing smell. It feels like your lungs are getting a health treatment.

    Pine trees everywhere.

    Lion's Head

    by mlt_t Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: LION'S HEAD The 40-foot high lion head serves as the backdrop of Kennon Road and has become the undisputed landmark that is synonymous to Baguio. It was curved by local artisans from a limestone boulder and unveiled in 1972 by Lions Club International. The actual work started in 1971 and took a year before being unveiled to the public.
