Botanical Garden, Baguio

3.3
#4 of 13 in Parks in Baguio
Revel in the tranquil ambiance of the pine forests and lush gardens of Botanical Garden. Well-maintained stone paths wind through various areas of the park, giving you the opportunity to see artworks in the art gallery, home of the Baguio Arts Guild, or shop for souvenirs in a small row of stalls selling handicrafts. The onsite Japanese theme park also attracts many visitors. Inspect the Buddha statues, admire the Japanese-style architecture, and don’t miss the chance to walk through the 150 m (492 ft) narrow tunnel. You can find onsite restrooms, and for a refreshing cup of coffee head to the cafe near the main entrance. A visit to Botanical Garden represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Baguio trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

    From what I could tell, this place is good for shopping, not its display of plants&trees. The prices are very negotiable and you will find many of the same things in e.g. Kultura (Mall of Asia, Manila...  more »

    Loved the beautiful flowers, sturdy trees, manicured gardens, and public art. For a park that does not charge admission fees and sees a constant stream of visitors, I thought this place is kept reasonably tidy and well-maintained. It’s a great place to while away time and escape the congestion of the city. There are shops and food stalls near the entrance.

    Lovely view. They also keep on adding new attractions. The place is clean as well. Good for picture taking and plant lovers will really enjoy.

    Was enjoying the cool breeze here, super picturesque really. It's really worth especially when you are walking with your loved one.

    Had a great time here. Very fresh air and lots of nice benches. There are some corny photo areas but there are also some cool paths noone seems to notice that are really cool. The hanging orchids are amazing.

    The best thing about this place is its walkability and the chance it gives you to explore its features. The flora was fascinating and refreshing, especially during the early hours of its opening hours. The different displays of architecture from different parts of the world was very interesting. However, one of the best features of the botanical garden is the tunnel built by the Japanese during WW2 found at the remote parts of the site. One annoying thing here is the blue pay toilets which would only open supposedly at 7:30 AM.

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
