After our breakfast at Choco-late de Batirol, we just strolled around, took pics, sat, and cooled our heels to reflect and appreciate the wonderful surroundings and a great sunny, mild and balmy weather.

Of course, hanggang tingin lang kami sa golf course.

But it also turned out to be another litter-picking task for me.

The Starbucks cup is one of the pieces of litter I saw and picked up, and there were lots more! Kulang na lang magdala ako ng garbage bag eh. The trash bin may be too far from where I picked up the trash (just outside Choco-late de Batirol, with separate "Biodegradable" and "Non-Biodegradable" bins) but is looking for a garbage bin this hard for them? Does that require too much effort? 128545

If these people really care about the environment, then no government or anyone else should discipline or tell them what to do. Disposing of litter propely is easy but many people take it for granted. Naturingan pa naman silang mga edukado pero wala silang urbanidad. All they care is posing for selfies, etc., but they don't care about the environment, even only a bit. Please be responsible tourists. 128549

It was wednesday afternoon, it was not too sunny nor too gloomy, when my friends and I decided to go for a picnic. (For a change. 128514)

It's not the usual barkada agenda but we totally had fun by just catching up and devouring what's on the table.

If you'll use the picnic table, they'll be charging you for 150php.

Camp John Hay has been my go to pasyalan when I want to have relax, hang out with friends, be alone 128563, or just want to have that perfect OOTD with the pine trees. 128513

There are a lot of activities to do in the area such as photography, mini golf, archery, badminton and basketball. Tree top adventure is also near and just a few steps away if you're into zipline adventure.

Furthermore, shopping centers and souvenier shops are everywhere the camp if you want to buy "pasalubong".

Love the cold air while walking around the area. Covered with trees with different establishments along the way. We had lunch in the compound and decided to go around. Nice place with tables and chairs to hangout with friends and family.

Oh Baguio! The cold never bothered me anyway! Loved the cool breeze and lots of fine trees. :)

Kinda disappointed with the Lost Cemetery as I thought it would be big, but it doesnt. Anyway, the tombs are entertaining.

Yeah, I liked the weather! I will try their outdoor activities next time.

R and I love Baguio so much that we frequent it as if it's just an hour drive. There were times when we'd visit twice in one month just so we could enjoy the cool and somewhat fresh breeze.

It's just sad though that the traffic in Baguio could be unbearable at times discouraging us from exploring the land of ube halaya and strawberries.

On good days though, R would be more than glad to drive around the city. And surprisingly, traffic wasn't bad at all during the Panagbenga Festival weekend.

That doesn't mean though that establishments are empty. Cafe by the Ruins for one had an approximate one hour wait list. Other restaurants like Sakura Terraces and those in Legarda do not have enough parking making it unlikely for us to dine there.

Then R proposed that we head to Camp John Hay, the less crowded version of Burnham Park.

There was not much of a crowd when we got there. We easily got parking and had late lunch at Choco-Late de Batirol.

After a filling meh-sarap afternoon snack, we walked around the area and enjoyed the picturesque view of trees.

On our way back, we passed by the area with restaurants and outlet store (or is it ukay-ukay).

I also spotted an area where you could camp and picnic. I'll definitely go back for that. 128525

Although Camp John Hay has been around since 1903, this former United States Air Forces R&R (rest and recreation) spot is definitely worth a revisit not just because of the hotels, golf course and shopping centers, but because of the Historical Core, where you can find The Lost Cemetery (Cemetery of Negativism), The Bell House, Bell Amphitheater, Statue of Liberty replica, and History Trail.

Walk along memory lane as you explore the Bell House and its adjoining library museum, and the History Trail, which gives you a glimpse of the Camp’s more than 100 years’ past. There’s also a Secret Garden near the Bel House but since it was getting dark, we didn’t get a chance to see it. Recently featured in a popular primetime local soap opera, my family had a blast going around the Lost Cemetery. We didn’t had a chance to go down the Bell Amphitheater as it was currently occupied by a just finished wedding.

Travel date: December 2014

I visited this place for the sake of it. There's nothing much to do, though. I liked the pine trees and the cold weather here compared to the weather in the city proper. I went inside the Bell House and imho it's not that interesting. 🙄 Well, it's still a good place to stroll at. 128526

Stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights for work. This is called the Forest Cabin. About P12,000 per night. However it's really big inside, 20 people can fit in. They have 3 floors. 2 bedrooms on the second floor and 2 attic room. Airconditioned with TV and clean kitchen m. They have a huge refrigerator. Everything you'll possibly need is here. Cozy place! They also have a heater in their bathroom so no worries on taking a shower.

I love Camp John Hay because its not crowded and there's no traffic inside. The only downside is, it can get to expensive inside.

i love camp john hay. it's clean and the people here are disciplined thanks to the guards.

i didn't know they have a callcenter here already with a good bunch of restos in the Baguio techno hub area.

i did not try the tree top adventure.

i did go see the bell house with an entrance fee of 60pesos per person for non students. with that fee you can go to Bell's museum house, the amphitheater, the garden around the area and a part of negativity cemetery.

i love the flowers around the area.

good thing i saw workers renovating the Bell's house. We need historical structures like this restored for future generations to enjoy.

Love this place. I just hope they stop making more hotels to preserve the trees.
