Baguio's Mines View Park

One of the famous tourists spots in Baguio City is Mines View Park.  It was called Mines View Park because it overlooks the gold and copper mines of Benguet Corporation and others in the Cordillera region.

Aside from the beautiful view, you can also feel the strong wind gushing.  There are also a lot of people who will offer you their binocular rental for 5 or 10 php, Igorot costume rental and photography services.

There are also a lot of souvenir stores and plant stores around the area.

Overall, the Travel Tripsters think that Mines View Park is a highly commercialized tourist attraction.  It's a good thing that the park itself is still FREE.  It's still a great landmark of Baguio City and certainly worth the visit.
