Mines View Park - Review
A good place to start your quest for gold, the Mines View Park is perhaps the most popular place in Baguio. The observation deck of the park offers stunning panoramas of the Amburayan valley. Approximately 5 kilometers from downtown Baguio, the Mines View Park overlooks abandoned copper and gold mines of the Benguet Corporation. Now a full blown tourist destination, you are bound to find a number of vendors and photographers around. But even then, the breathtaking views from this place are worth every disturbance.

Mines View Park, Baguio Reviews
Very nice place and very good views. Be careful with the guy with a St. Bernard dog. He is a ripper. Also don't buy souvenirs here, it's way too expensive. If you want Baguio shirts for your photo shoot in Mines View, better stop at the shops in Botanical Gardens before heading up to Mines View, they are way cheaper, souvenirs are cheaper here too.
Though there was a little clearing, we were astonished by the view on where this attraction is located. It was so serene that the fog made us thought that at one moment in time we are close to heaven. There was also a lot of cheap souvenir shops around the attraction. Lived the place...
Mines View Park is a must have in any tourist's itinerary visiting Baguio. Aside from it being easily accessible by vehicles, it has also lots of stores for souvenirs with affordable prices. You could also haggle with shop owners if you buy by bulk. It has also lots of shops selling potted plants and of course the costume shop that rents indigenous clothing. Though be careful going to the observatory since it becomes slippery when wet.
Maybe i just got too old but going here now was less exciting than when i went as a kid. But i was very excited for the kids being their first time, seeing their astonished faces, am glad we went, also for the wife, its her first time too. Its was not as cold or crowded as I remembered but still, it became one of my unforgettable memories and hopefully for them it was the same experience.
It's a refreshing experience! Nice to see the beauty of nature at its best. The good climate in Baguio is perfect not only for family get away with the hassle and bustle of work and city life back in Valenzuela.
