    SM City Baguio: We got it all for you...

    by semper.max Written Nov 27, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Offering a great view of Baguio city, SM City Baguio is worth a visit especially if you left some essentials before going to Baguio. Just like any SM Mall, it has several shops, cinemas and restaurants. The only difference probably is that it has no centralized air-conditioning on the open areas unlike the other SM Malls. Who needs air-conditioning anyway in Baguio?

    Good Shepherd Convent: Feed your Tummy and Feed your Soul

    by semper.max Updated Nov 13, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A few meters away from Mines View Park is the Good Shepherd convent that sells Baguio home-made delicacies made by their nuns. My personal favorites are the Ube Jam, the Strawberry Jam and their Peanut Brittle. Although their products are also sold elsewhere in Baguio, getting them directly from the convent assures that you're getting it freshly prepared.

    There is also a small garden inside and it also provides a viewing deck where you can have a magnificent view of Baguio.

    Proceeds from the sale of these products are being used for the charities sponsored by the nuns and also used for maintaining the compound. Buying them not only feeds your stomach but also feeds your soul. :)

    Parking is provided inside the convent but if you need to go back to Mines view park, you may have to circle back since the street going to the convent from Mines view is a one-way street.

    It's open only until 5 so be sure to visit it early.

    What to buy: Peanut brittle, fruit preserves, ube jam, strawberry jam, other delicacies

    by semper.max Updated Nov 13, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mines view park is used to be known only for its magnificent view of the copper and gold mines of Baguio. Nowadays, it has become a shopping mecca for tourists and locals alike looking for a bargain. Here, you would get souvenir items and Baguio handicrafts at low and reasonable prices. Ibay, a well-known jewelry store from Baguio specializing on silver sterling also has a shop near the park.

    What to buy: Souvenirs, Local Handicrafts, Jewelries esp. made of Sterling Silver

    Authorized BCC Outlets: Where To Buy Baguio Country Club Raisin Bread, etc

    by cyndymc Written Aug 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'd like to share with you a not-so-well-known fact shared by my niece. When we were in Baguio for the 2009 Panagbenga, she surprised me with a pack of my favorite BCC raisin bread and banana cake for our evening snack. We were not billeted at the Baguio Country Club, but she got them anyway from...guess where? a nearby gasoline station!

    Yes, you can still buy your favorite BCC raisin bread and banana cake at any of the following authorized BCC outlets and gasoline stations: at gasoline stations like Caltex Legarda & Petron BGH, Petron Victory and Petron Burnham; at the different coffee shops like Figaro SM and Club John Hay, Starbucks SM & Club John Hay and Gloria Jeans Café; also at Villa Cordillera in Outlook Drive. You can choose where to buy depending on your hotel's proximity. Since they have very limited stock, it is best to order a day before.

    What to buy: Banana Cake, Raisin Bread, other BCC pastries

    What to pay: I am not sure if the price of the breads, cakes and pastries are the same as BCC, but who cares? You get to savor them though you're not a member billeted at BCC.

    Good Shepherd Convent: Shopping With A Social Conscience

    by cyndymc Updated Apr 26, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Good Shepherd Sisters have been known to help out-of-school youth by training them to cook ube jam, strawberry jam, cookies & other pastries, and produce hand-made souvenir items. The proceeds of the store of the Good Shepherd Sisters go to the education and livelihood programs for out-of-school youth. That means every peso you pay goes to a socially responsible endeavour... Now, doesn't that make you feel good?

    What to buy: Ube (Yam) Jam, Strawberry Jam & Jelly, Blueberry Jelly, Lenguas de Gato, Crinkles, and other pastries; hand-sewn/made souvenir items; fresh vegetable; herbal concoctions. etc

    What to pay: Your P500 will already buy a lot of "pasalubongs" and/or souvenirs

It is an enclosed shopping mall with a floor area of 105,331 sq.meters, touted as the largest shopping mall in the region, standing on a land area of 80,000 sq. meters on the northern tip of the city's popular Session Road.

    by cyndymc Written Mar 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tam-awan Village is the base of many local artists. The souvenir shop's merchandise is not as common as the ones sold in other commmercial establishment.

    What to pay: The wood carvings found in Tam-awan Village are more intricate so they are more pricey (P1,000 to P15,000). The other souvenir items are at par with local market price.

    Good Shepherd's Convent: Ube preserves are the best in Good Shepherd!

    by santeria01 Updated Jan 6, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop is located inside the Good Shepherd Convent - meaning nuns make these fabulous delicacy. I always make it a point to go to this place whenever I go to Baguio, their Ube jams are so yummy and you can't get them in any part of the Philippines! Except in Tagaytay, I think. The also have a convent in Tagaytay.

    When buying their Ube preserves, make sure that this is your last on the itinerary. The shop opens around 8AM and the ube preserves are sold hot / fresh from the oven! Make sure also that you open the lid and allow bit of air on the food since its perishable and you might not be able to eat it when you arrive in Manila.

    What to buy: Ube jam, strawberry jams, guava jelly, peanut brittle

    What to pay: a small container of Ube jam costs 130 pesos, strawberry jam 190 pesos.

    Binatog a unique Filipino concoction

    by allelli Updated Jan 2, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: I highly recommend to try this Binatog, a warm concoction of boiled corn, coconut, sugar and milk When you buy Binatog you will noticed a crowd buying cups of binatog from a vendor This must be a relatively unique Filipino concoction it has just a few ingredients: boiled corn kernels that are intentionally overcooked so that they are literally bursting out of their skins, sugar, grated coconut, and evaporated milk. My kids love this so much

    What to pay: You can try this Binatog for Php10 a cup

    Strawberry Farm: Fresh Strawberry in Baguio

    by allelli Updated Jan 2, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Strawberry Farm in nearby La Trinidad, Benguet (about 20 minutes from the city center) Here you could go into the fields and pick the strawberry by yourself. it is an experience well worth priceless event!

    What to buy: One highly recommended activity is strawberry picking at the Strawberry Farm.November is the best time to pick fresh strawberries,

    What to pay: In general, it costs twice the market price to pick your own strawberries, which folks find strange, especially those who have tried apple or orange picking in orchards in other countries thinking they provide "free labor." and one thing price defend on supply and demand.

    SM Baguio: Mutlilevel Shopping Mall in Upper Session Road

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 4, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    first of all, SM Shoemart is the Largest Chain of Malls in th philippines hence it is no wonder that they have a mall here in Baguio CIty., That Being Said, this is the First SM Mall that is not Fully Airconditioned! why? isn't it obvious that Baguio City has a semi-temperate climate hence it has a natural air condition. This SM Mall opened in November 2003 and became a destination in itself since if offers sprawling, panoramic views of the city and the design is different in that it offers a multi level view of the city and tent-like roof which is a first in SM Shoemart Design.

    What to buy: SM appliance center, ACE Hardware, Watsons, Our Home, Sports Central, Surplus Shop and Toy Kingdom, as well as fashion boutiques, jewelry and home stores, novelty shops, food courts, restaurants.

    Anything that you can buy in a Mall but less of the Luxury Brands.

    What to pay: depends on your budget. Haggling here is not allowed unlike in the public market.
