Baguio City Things to Do: 175 reviews and 348 photos


Another park! But still a favorite because it has awesome view of the baguio mountains. Once there was a St Bernard which you can pose for a picture with, for a fee. You don't get to see those kind of dogs here in Manila since they thrive in cool climate. There are also lots of stalls here to buy goodies to bring back to Manila, such as:

- wooden key chains, wooden ash tray (some of them depict erect penises. weird but it's a hilarious gift to give anyway)
- the barrel man (small wooden figure of a naked man wearing a barrel. take off the barrel and you'd see his "thing" jut out!)
- pranela blanket
- knitted scarves, sweatshirts, bonnets, etc
- peanut brittle, strawberry jam, ube jam, fudge revel bar, lengua de gato
- textiles from the igorot tribe (those red/white/black prints), headdress, etc
- believe it or not, native brooms are popular here (I really dunno why, I will have to research on that). So am not surprised that my boyfriend wanted to buy a set to take back to Manila. But I do mind taking them back coz they're bulky and we're just commuting! But I had no choice! Grrr!
