From Wright Park, you will walk towards The Mansion, the official summer palace of the President. The impressive Spanish Colonial Revival exterior makes a great background for your photos. While visitors cannot enter the palace, the museum beside it is open to the public. There you will see an extensive collection of the president’s memorabilia.

Locals also rent out their traditional costumes to visitors for a photo opportunity.

Mines View Park is also the perfect spot to sample Baguio’s famous Strawberry Taho, a sweet local dessert made of silken tofu.
Afterward, you will proceed to Camp John Hay, another landmark in Baguio. This former US Military Base is now a forest watershed reservation and recreational complex. Here you can find the Bell House, History Trail, and the Secret Garden.
You will also stop by the Philippine Military Academy. Check out the museum and see historical military weapons such as tanks. If you’re lucky, you will catch military exhibitions and other celebrations. You may even see a glimpse of aspiring cadets performing daily drills.
