Strawberry Farm, Mines View Park and Ukay Ukay in Baguio City

One of the services that Mines View Park Hotel is to provide their guests a shuttle for transportation/service to any area in Baguio City where they wanted to visit and it is part of the packages they provide. During our stay in Baguio City, Mines View Park Hotel provides us a ride going to Strawberry Farm, Ukay Ukay (main city) and Good Shepherds Store and walk our way to Mines View Park.

It was first time to visit Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad and quoting the Taho (Sweetened Soy Bean Curd) Vendor, “Matutupad na ang pangarap ninyo” and yes I came true from Farmville that I waited for 2-3 hours before harvesting strawberries, I saw the actual farm of strawberries but like in Farmville no fruits yet. But I tried the strawberry taho where instead the usual caramel and sago its caramelized strawberries to topped the soy bean curd. It’s P20 per cup, there’s also strawberry ice cream that is P15 pesos per cone. In Strawberry Farm they also sell strawberry wines (3 bottles for P100) and fresh vegetables and fruits that is very cheap and affordable.

Ukay-ukay is one of the main attractions in Baguio City it is located along Session Road I manage to buy two jackets for P500, thanks to our driver who told us we can bargain lower that the usual price. Its usual price is around P300 each so I got both 100 pesos less, maybe I can do work more on my “tawaran” abilities soon in ukay ukay stores here in Manila.

Mines View Park is the third area we visited in Baguio City, it’s a 10 minute walk away from the Mines View Park Hotel. It’s main attraction in the close view of the Cordillera Mountains and Baguio products such as silverwares, wood carvings and knitted clothes created by the Baguio residents. Aside from the sceneries and products, I suggest that don’t missed to take pictures of you with the Cordilleran natives in the other side of Mines View Park, per picture it cost P10, aside from photo souvenir you will be bringing home is the help you can give through your donations for their Senior Citizen Projects.

Lastly, everyone should not missed the Good Shepherd Store near the Mines View Park where you can buy food products such as Peanut Brittle, Ube, Choco Flakes, Jellies, and other preserved food products on a very affordable price. For every purchase in the store it helps to raised funds for the projects and activities of the congregation of the Religious of the Good Shepherd which supports majority of the natives and families in Baguio City.

Those were some of the areas you can visit in Baguio City which Mines View Park Hotel offers transportation services to their guests.
