Baguio Adventure Aug 29 - 31: Places to Visit

Posted by abie on 11:11 PM in

DAY 1: Manaoag Shrine, American Residence, Wright Park, The Mansion and Mines View Park

We just got back from our three day weekend in Baguio. We left Manila last Friday at around 5 Am as we want to reach Baguio by 12 nn. We took the new express way, the SCTEX, which is really a faster way compared to the old route so by 10 AM, we are already in La Union. Since we arrived earlier than what we expected, we decided to drop by at the Shrine of the Our Lady of Manaoag. We are using my brother’s brand new car so we took the chance to have it blessed.

After Manaoag, we hit the road again and head straight to Baguio. By 12 nn, we are already at Session Road. We went to SM Baguio and had lunch at Don Henricos (I will have a separate post about our Food Trip in Baguio). After lunch, we went to Camp John Hay and started to look for the American Residence located inside the camp as we are scheduled for a tour from 1:00 – 3:00 PM.

After the tour we checked in at the hotel and rested there for a while. Then we went to Wright Park as Bela can’t wait to ride the horses at the Wright Park riding circle. She got excited as soon as she saw the horses and while my dad was parking the car, she kept on saying “Let’s go. Ride horse.” Bela was the one who selected the pink horse and she really had fun.

After Bela’s horse back riding adventure, we went to The Mansion for some photo opps. Then we head to Mines View Park. It was already 5:30 when we reached Mines View so we just had a few shots and decided to go back to Session Road to look for a place to eat.

DAY 2: Mile HI, PMA, Burnham, Ukay-Ukay, Wright Park, Café by the Ruins

We started our day by checking the stores at the Mile Hi Center. Of course I was able to grab some good finds (I will make a separate post about my shopping adventure in Baguio).

After shopping, we went to PMA as requested by my husband. After PMA, we had lunch again at Don Henricos (they are sill craving for Don Hen’s buffalo wings). We decided to leave the car parked at SM and we walked from SM to Bagiuo Cathedral and to Burnham Park where Bela rode the Swan boat with her dad and grand dad. Then we walked again from Burnham Park and checked out the wagwagan center.

Then we went back to SM to pick up the car and went back to Wright Park as Bela wants to go horse back riding again. After this, we went back to session road to look for Café by the Ruins and had our dinner there.

All of us slept early that night. We all got really tired from our hectic second day schedule.

DAY 3: Good Shepherd & Baguio Market

Bela woke up with a slight fever so we decided to just buy souvenirs and head back to Manila. We had breakfast first at Chocolate de Batirol inside Camp John Hay then we went to Good Shepherd to buy our favorite Ube Jam. Then we had a short trip to Baguio market to buy some pasalubongs.

By 12 nn, we are on the road again on our way to Manila.
