Burnham Park (May 14, 2012)

After we had lunch at one of the restos on Session Road, we went back to the hotel to rest for a few hours as we hardly slept on the bus. At around 4pm, we ventured out again - this time to explore Burnham Park. We merely walked from our hotel (roughly about 5 blocks) as weather was fully cooperating with bright sunny skies and a cool breeze hovering over us.

Coincidentally the park is named after Daniel Burnham, an American urban planner and architect who laid the plans for development of Baguio.

It is a vast park where you can do various activities like reflect while sitting on benches surrounded by tall green trees. You can haggle while shopping at the bazaar stalls which sell items from magnets, garments to just about anything. Or you can indulge in the main activity which is boating on rented boats on the man made lake centrally located within the Park.

Quite fun as I had my own boatman to do the rowing - my beloved hubby!
