Part 3 of Baguio Destinations (Again and Again)

We were not lucky to visit the Bencab Museum and thus we found ourselves to Camp John Hay, one of the more popular Baguio tourist destinations. Our first stop was to take a sip and get to know the owner of Choco-Late de Batirol. As Ate Haiz was talking to the owner of the restaurant, Emil and I somehow got bored and lucky we wandered the place for a while. We went under the shades of the trees, took some pictures, did some jump shots and felt the nature exclusive in Camp John Hay.

Visiting the place is free, but of course getting inside stores, eat some food or drink coffee is not free. Camp John Hay is a shopping haven as Ayala Techno-Hub was erected there. But more to a shopping destination, John Hay is more popular because of its nature adventure. Camp John Hay is a good place for people who want to try paint ball games, wall climbing adventure, experiencing zip line, rappelling, Tree Top Adventure, eco tour, target shooting, playing golf and a lot more. There are also attractions like Butterfly Sanctuary where you can bring kids. The Cemetery of Negativism and a church was also found here.

Camp John Hay also houses some of the best hotels and resorts in Asia. The Manor, a world-class hotel is in Camp John Hay. Golf courses are around, and for marketers who want a good venue for their event, there are also conference halls or convention center where they can hold their event in Baguio.

Turn the subject on a different angle!

We didn’t get the chance to wander more of Camp John Hay so we decided to walk the way to Pacdal Circle (we took the other entrance to Camp John Hay other than the one that goes to PMA). We did a little bit of a walk tour, just enjoyed the green views and eventually exited to the main road. Here we are already near to other Baguio tourist attractions like Botanical Garden and Wright Park. We decided to take a taxi though back to the downtown.
