Day 2 – Burnham Park / Camp John Hay

While Wendy and Carter attended the wedding in Baguio Cathedral, we stayed in Burnham Park and let the kids play on the park. It was not as grassy as before but the place by the lake with colorful flowers is relaxing and the air is cool, we enjoyed lying down in the picnic mat. The rest went to check out the Wagwagan / ukay-ukay places and some of them got good finds.

Bell House

In Camp John Hay (my favorite destination in Baguio), we find it hard to find a parking spot, most of the people also flocked here. We finally found a spot in Scout Hill and took the opportunity to visit and check out the other attractions there like the Bell Amphitheater, Bell House, Historical Core, Cemetery of Negativism and trail leading to The Manor which we didn’t took because it’s tiring to go uphill. The kids enjoyed the swing and slides while we wait for our hot chocolate in Choco-late de Batirol. The name speaks for itself because it took us over 30 minutes to get our cups. I would say it was worth the wait because the different flavored-hot chocolate (I liked the Almond and Strawberry) not only provided warmth but also good and authentic taste of chocolate tablea prepared in batirol. I recommend this to be a must-try when you go to Camp John Hay.
