Baker's Hill in Puerto Princesa - it's more than pasalubong!

Baker's Hill in Puerto Princesa - it's more than pasalubong!

Baker's Hill is a famous pasalubong center in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. However, it's not just a place to buy your pasalubong for your loved ones. It's also a place full of "hugot", making it interesting to roam around in.

Baker's Hill is usually a last stop when you visit Puerto Princesa. It's where you can buy most of the famous food souvenirs or pasalubong, but the great thing about this place is you are hitting two birds with one stone -- buying and wandering.

It's great also for those traveling on a budget, since you can make the most of your time as your friends buy their pasalubong. At least, you can be elsewhere and not melt in bitterness as you watch your friends hoard some stuff *wink wink*

Another interesting thing about the place is it's all filled up with love quotes as well as "hugot" ones. In short, it's a place with humor. Check out this hugot line - "Hindi ko kinalimutan na mahal kita. Tinandaan ko lang na mas mahal mo siya".

Love is the central theme of the place, so you'll find symbols of affection such as this heart made of different kinds of flowers.

Kids will also enjoy Baker's Hill, since there is a playground for them to enjoy. This means that Baker's Hill has grown into both a pasalubong center and a park.

Here's another clear proof that love is the core theme of Baker's Hill. It's a life size "LOVE" word.

In a same way, the place seems to be contradicting itself with its humor. Here in this part, you can see the sign "Bawal Magdate Dito" (You can't have your date here). Well, actually, I do not know if the management is serious about this, but I took it as a joke.
