Baker’s Hill is known to have delicious baked goodies such as Chocolate Crinkles, Hopia, Brownies and many more but aside from that, it is also known to be a theme park for Puerto Princesa citizens and tourists as well. Baker’s Hill is like a kiddie wonderland filled with fiberglass sculptures adapted from popular Disney characters. This will certainly make you feel that you’re in Disneyland, but without the gigantic and flashy carnival rides. The place is great for families because there is a playground wherein kids can just be themselves and adults can be kids again.
Baker’s Hill started out as a usual bakery but they eventually expanded and decided to make it into a theme park. And now, this has become a popular destination for the Puerto Princesa City Tour. Our friendly tricycle driver brought us there after coming from the Mitra Ranch which was just nearby. We heard that the owner was not originally born in Puerto Princesa, but also a tourist just like us who decided to stay in Puerto Princesa and venture into this kind of business.
There were houses that seemed like what we imagine in fairy tales. It brought me back to my childhood because the houses were so adorable especially fictional characters. Unfortunately, you can’t picnic there. Food establishments are just around the corner and food is not that really expensive (around 50 to 80 pesos per meal?).
There is no entrance fee in Baker’s Hill. In fact, you can just go there and take a look around. For us, we stayed there for about 30 minutes. After looking around, we headed to the bakery and bought ourselves pasalubongs for our families in Manila.
Baker’s Hill is located at the Mitra Road, Barangay Sta. Monica, Puerto Princesa City.
