A Nearer Baguio

Tagaytay, Philippines

If you are looking for a cold place nearest to the city, I would suggest that you visit Tagaytay. Unlike Baguio which is located Miles away from the city, Tagaytay provides a very convenient getaway. And of course it costs less than going to Baguio City.

Tagaytay is situated in Batangas, near the famous Lake Taal. Tagaytay is not as cold as compared to Baguio, but its gentle winds and fine weather make it perfect for relaxation.

Camp John Hay

Camp John Hay used to be the Rest and Recreation center of the United States Army personnel in the Philippines. Because of its cool climate, the area was suitable and ideal for the American army. Today, Camp John Hay is a beautiful vacation spot in Baguio City. It is the resort of the mountains.

The moment you enter Camp John Hay, you will be astonished by its beauty. You will notice a large bentgreen grass-filled golf course within the camp that is designed by Jack Niclaus, which is accessible to members and nonmembers alike. It is also great to cruise the pine tree-lined roads while feeling the cool breeze and viewing the beautiful landscape. Camp John Hay also has great hotels such as The Manor Hotel, a shopping center, and a convention center. Although the camp has changed over time, it still remains a wonderful and relaxing place for everyone.

Mines View Park

Baguio, Philippines

One of the most popular and most visited spots in Baguio City is Mines View Park. It is the most visited park in the city which lays on a gentle slope that overlooks Benguet's gold and copper mines The park has a wide observation deck where you can experience a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains.

Minesview park is usually the next stop after visiting the Mansion and Wright Park. Once you enter the park, you will pass winding stone-covered pathway that slopes downward leading to the observation deck. There are also rock benches that lay along the pathway where you can simply rest and enjoy the view. I recommend that you visit the park in the morning because fog starts to move in during the afternoon, which obstructs the view. Of course, there is a wide assortment of “pasalubong” or gifts that make Minesview Park an enjoyable place.
