When you’re lost in Puerto Princesa City looking for a pasalubong, chances are you’ll end up in Baker’s Hill. But aside from the fame for Palawan delicacies, they are visited by tourists for the lovely experience you will have. City tours would normally include this on the itinerary which is located at Mitra Road, Brgy. Sta. Monica on top of a hill.
There are lots of interesting and picturesque stuff inside and I probably took tons of photos. Here are 6 things about Baker’s Hill that I believe you will love. 🙂
1. The History
Every place has a story to tell and Baker’s Hill has a pretty good one. The owner started with a simple bakeshop that eventually grew and became successful. As a way to give back to the people, the owner decided to create their land into a theme park with an enchanting garden landscape free of entrance fee.
Kids will surely love the place because of the child-friendly environment. It has a colorful playground and the trees provide a good shade. Moreover, they have lots of fiber-glass statues of your favorite cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Shrek, Snow White and more.
3. The Peacock
They have a mini-zoo and an aviary that houses a few animals but the spotlight is on their colorful birds, the peacocks. They have about 6-8 of them and I can’t remember the last time I saw one. I was just mesmerized by the regal and magnificence of this creature.
4. The Little Things
Literally, I am impressed with the little things or should I say the attention to details put on the designs. From the sign boards, to the lamp posts, everything has been carefully crafted that gives world-class look of the place.
5. The Romantic Scenery
Lovers will definitely like the views inside Baker’s Hill as they have put so much love into it. They even have a viewing deck that has a good view of the horizon.
6. The Hopia
And lastly, if you ask someone what pasalubong you must bring when in Baker’s Hill, that would be their delicious hopia. They also have different kinds of breads and pastries for your sweet tooth.
Baker’s Hill is just so beautifully unique. The moment you step inside the compound feels like you are brought into a different world. Either it makes you feel like a kid again or just makes you feel in love. Honestly, there are more things I’d love to share but I guess those 6 are enough to say that it’s a must-visit place when in Puerto Princesa. I just love the place and it spreads so much good vibes. 🙂
