The Mansion is a famous spot in the city and is the official summer palace of the President of the Philippines. It is located across Wright Park. Expect a crowd upon your visit so just look for a good angle to strike a pose. There's nothing much you can do here except for taking photos.

Constructed in 1908 to serve as the summer residence of the U.S. Governor Generals during the American occupation, The Mansion is currently the official summer residence of the Philippine President after it was turned over to the Philippine government during the Philippine Commonwealth. It was rebuilt in 1947 after suffering heavily from World War II.

Aside from having your photo taken with The Mansion and reflective pool at the background, there is nothing much to do here. During the Christmas season, a Nativity Scene adorns the front lawn of The Mansion.

It is the President's summer home, and not open to the public. Filipinos consider it a mandatory stop when visiting Baguio, just for a photo in front of the fence. Not interesting for me.

Even tourists are not permitted to enter the entire area, i can could consider myself a fortunate one to witnessed it personally. The place was so spacious and the gate was tall and stunning. Wright Park in front is also worth a visit.

We arrived at around 6 am so there was plenty of parking space available.

Aside from a brief photo-op, there is nothing much to do at The Mansion. Although compared to our last visit here, the security personnel were friendlier. A service vehicle entered the premises so they had the gates opened. As it was pretty early in the morning and there were only a handful of tourists, the security personnel allowed us to pose and take photos in front of The Mansion with open gates.

We went for a walk at Wright Park afterward.

It was my first time to see this place. and it was boring! Nothing to do here. Activities are limited. Like, seeing The Mansion from afar, and picture taking. You will not be able to see the inside. Good thing that it doesn't have entrance fee.

It was a cool day when we visited.
Not much to do except to do photo ops with the mansion as backdrop. Security were all over the place. Best time to go there late in the afternoon so that it wont be that crowded.

The Mansion is a free place attraction area in baguio. No entrance fee when you visit. Every year they have different Christmas theme that you and your family will surely enjoy. When visiting baguio don't forget to wear a pair of comfortable shoes because you will enjoy having a long walk for sure!
