In the event you’re in search of a spot in Baguio with overlooking views and picturesque environment with out having to go too removed from the town middle, Mirador Heritage & Eco Park is the place to go!

It covers 5 hectares of multi-terrace landscaped park having a number of completely different sections. We traversed the trail masking many of the points of interest (apart from Lourdes Grotto because it’s fairly massive of a climb and we’re not so ). We loved the fantastic thing about the place particularly the Mirador Peace Memorial, Blue Moon Gate, and Arashiyama Bamboo Grove.

From the doorway, we have been suggested to go straight to the Mirador Peace Memorial (the one with a made-up Japanese Torii) which is the very best level of the park. Then from there, we will go down and go to different sections as much as the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. It was a very good recommendation for the reason that path from the doorway to the Mirador Peace Memorial was not too steep and there aren’t any stairs so it’s straight accessible for everybody.

Our first cease was the Mirador Peace Memorial. That is the place these fairly social media pictures have been taken. There’s a purple arch original like a Japanese Torii Gate which supplies a little bit of Japanese environment to the town of pines. Not solely the Torii, however extra particularly the view from up right here is gorgeous! You’ll be able to have a hen’s eye view of the town with the mountains within the background. Chill out by the various benches obtainable, savor the view, take nice pictures, and odor the cool pine breeze of Baguio.

Just a bit trivia. In Japan, it’s believed that you shouldn’t stroll by means of the center of the Torii Gate as it’s reserved just for the Kami (god). However in fact, this isn’t an actual Torii and we’re not in Japan so that is clearly only a good props for photograph ops (as a result of we Filipinos are so keen on such). I’m not into Shintoism but when ever I’d be in Japan quickly, I’ll respect their tradition by merely not strolling by means of the center (and I might share my religion as nicely in the event that they’d permit me).

There have been just some vacationers since we went a bit early (earlier than 8 am). Round 9 am different vacationers arrived although it nonetheless wasn’t too crowded because it was a weekday. Tip: In the event you don’t like overcrowding (and visitors), you higher go throughout weekdays. I might solely think about the lengthy queue of vacationers for every attraction throughout weekends and holidays!

Subsequent is the Blue Moon Gate, situated simply subsequent to the Peace Memorial. You simply must climb down just a few steps of stairs and also you’ll be greeted by one other breathtaking view. There are lounges by the cliffside nice for photo-ops. You’ll be able to hang around right here and benefit from the view whereas saving up vitality for the following points of interest!

And right here we come! Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is likely one of the primary points of interest right here in Mirador Heritage & Eco Park. It provides a little bit style of Japan because it not solely resembles the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest in Kyoto, but it surely’s even named after it! We haven’t been to Japan but, however we recognize the place a lot. It’s clear and peaceable. You’ll be able to really feel the Baguio local weather whereas being surrounded by inexperienced bamboo forests.

That is the place we spent the longest time. There are a lot of benches throughout the forest so you may take a relaxation anytime you want one. It was such a refreshing and rejuvenating expertise to be encircled by bamboo timber that served as short-term protect from all the surface noise and stress. It’s such as you’re in a haven the place you may pause for some time, breathe, and clear up your thoughts.

The Bamboo Grove is our final cease and is close to the doorway gate. In the event you solely intend to go to the Bamboo Grove and Peace Memorial, you are able to do in order they’re each straight accessible from the doorway. However if you wish to traverse the entire path, you may too. It’s actually as much as you. In our case, we allotted the entire morning for this so we have now ample time to discover the park.

All in all, we had a good time exploring Mirador Heritage & Eco Park. It’s true that this is likely one of the finest and gratifying vacationer sports activities in Baguio!

 

Lunch at Good Style Restaurant

It was a rewarding, but, bodily tiring enterprise so we went straight to Good Style Restaurant to refuel. From Mirador Park, we took a 10-minute taxi trip going to the restaurant.

We anticipated a beneficiant serving due to the evaluations. However we didn’t anticipate it to be this luxurious! Every meal is I feel good for two reasonable eaters like us. That’s why we had many leftovers, which we took house for Mamba (the resident doggo within the Airbnb we rented).

The meals will not be solely hearty, however scrumptious as nicely. It actually matches the eating places title “Good Style”. Kudos for the constant branding!

After the satisfying lunch at Good Style Restaurant, we went again to our Airbnb to take some relaxation as a result of the Tito and Tita in us simply needed to chill out and to not have a decent itinerary. At meal time, we tried Cafe by the Ruins which I’ll share quickly. So keep tuned to our subsequent posts about our current Baguio journey!
